Ice Cream Sundae Pie

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

Sorry for the sloppy photo . . . with three kids and a hungry hubby, you can bet it was all I could do to snap a quick shot before my family devoured that pie! 😉


My family could live on ice cream. Heck, if I was given the option, I'd probably live on ice cream and hot fudge myself. (My husband teases me that when I get to heaven I'll request a never-ending stream of non-caloric hot fudge ~ ummmm . . . he might just be right about that.)


So, this weekend I decided to play around with some ice cream sundae pie, and oh my heavens, we figured it out alright. My girls helped (hence the need to “hammer” the M&Ms in picture #5 below), and everyone fought over the end result. . . .yum!  I will warn you that it was a kind of sticky process, but completely worth the end result. 😉


Here's what you'll need for a summer splurge at your house too:

Ice Cream Sundae Pie


  • prepared chocolate graham cracker crust
  • hot fudge sauce
  • 1/2 cup caramel topping
  • M&Ms (or your favorite candy) chopped up
  • 1 small container Cool Whip
  • 1/2 gallon ice cream (your favorite ~ we used chocolate chip)
  • chocolate syrup (just to make it look pretty) 😉


  1. Cover bottom of graham cracker pie crust with hot fudge sauce. (You may need to warm it a bit to help it pour ~ we used about 3/4 cup.)
  2. Layer one layer of ice cream ~ if possible just slice pieces of ice cream using a knife from the gallon.
  3. Drizzle caramel topping over ice cream, then add one layer chopped candy.
  4. Add another layer of ice cream.
  5. Cover with one more layer of fudge sauce (about 1/2 cup this time)
  6. Cover completely with Cool Whip, freeze for 6-8 hours.
  7. Drizzle with chocolate syrup and serve ~ yum!
