It's Fourth of July weekend. Grilling shrimp and making a few hot dogs. For dessert I made something so easy, I feel guilty giving you the recipe.
1 ready made chocolate pie crust
1 quart of cookies and cream ice cream, softened
Chocolate ganache (recipe follows)
Whipped cream for topping
Take ice cream out of freezer, allow to soften but not melt.
Spoon the ice cream into the pie crust to one level, to the top.
Prepare ganache by melting 1 cup of chocolate chips with 1/2 cup heavy cream. Place bowl with the ingredients in the microwave and melt for 30 seconds at a time. Stir vigorously and right before your eyes, the dark chocolate ganache appears. It should be smooth.
Pour the ganache to the top of the completed ice cream pie. Carefully cover the pie and place in freezer.
After several hours or before serving, remove from freezer and top each piece with whipped cream or cover entire pie with whipped cream.
It's a winner!
Note: you can choose any flavor of ice cream or pie crust.
It's a great dessert for a hot July day!
Happy Birthday America 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲
