4 Ingredient Ice Cream Pie with Peanut Butter Krispie Crust
Summertime always calls for plenty of ice cream, but have you ever thought about creating a pie with ice cream? Heidi, the author of ‘Foodiecrush’ recipe blog, has an easy 4-ingredient ice cream pie with peanut butter Rice Krispie crust recipe that will knock your socks off. This ice cream pie recipe is easy with only four mandatory ingredients, and it doesn’t require any baking at all. The most challenging part of this pie recipe is mixing and pressing the peanut butter Rice Krispie crust into the pie dish because you don’t want to break up all the rice Krispie pieces. Then, it is a matter of spreading in your favourite softened ice cream and topping with whatever garnishes you enjoy.
Ice cream desserts are mandatory for summer barbecues and pool parties, but this ice cream pie recipe will be one of the easiest desserts while making you look like a pro at the same time. Rather than just plain old ice cream, your guests will appreciate the thought you went into creating your ice cream dessert. Easy dessert recipes are the best when you have a large social gathering going on, like a birthday party, because it means you can spend more time with your guests and less time in the kitchen. This pie recipe can be prepared well ahead of time and will keep in the freezer for a long time. Just make sure to wrap the pie very well to prevent unattractive freezer burn and you won’t have anything to worry about.
If you want cool recipes for dessert to serve at your kids’ birthday party, this ice cream recipe is simple enough to duplicate, and you can make several kinds if you aren’t sure what the guests will like. Choose to mix the varieties of ice cream in each pie recipe by doing some in plainer vanilla and others in chocolate. Then you can arrange sprinkles, chocolate chips, fruits, and syrups so that everyone can garnish their own piece of pie. You can even swirl a couple of ice creams together in one pie for a more colourful effect.
An odd sounding ingredient in this summer dessert recipe is the Karo syrup, which helps bind the peanut butter and rice Krispies together. Karo is a brand name that puts out corn syrup, which is what is being referred to in Heidi’s pie recipe. If you don’t have Karo syrup where you live, you can substitute with a brand like Beehive or Crown and your results should be much the same. You may even choose to use another liquid sweetener, like unpasteurized honey, which contains more nutritional benefits than corn syrup. Since the syrup is acting as a binder to the Rice Krispie crust recipe, there shouldn’t be an issue with substituting the corn syrup to a liquid sweetener you feel better about.
