AIMEE'S CHOCOLATE CREAMSICLE ICE CREAM PIE

  • 1 9 inch graham cracker pie crust or chocolate wafer pie crust
  • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, softened
  • 1 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • chocolate ganache (recipe below)
  • homemade whipped cream
  • orange slice for garnish

Spread about 1/2 cup of chocolate ganache on the pie crust. Mix vanilla ice cream (or frozen yogurt) and orange juice concentrate together in a bowl, then pour into pie crust, on top of chocolate. Cover and place into freezer to set; at least 4 hours. Remove from freezer and top with whipped cream then drizzle more ganache on top. 
 

Ganache:

  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (semisweet, milk chocolate or a mixture of the two)
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Place chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl (heavy glass is best). Heat heavy cream on the stove top in a small sauce pan just until it boils. Pour cream over chocolate chips and stir until all of the chocolate has melted. At this point, if desired; you can add vanilla extract, orange extract or liquors.
