Topped with vanilla whipped cream, chocolate fudge sauce, and chocolate shavings, this is one epic ice cream pie!

Perfect Chocolate Espresso Ice Cream Pie

Crust – Made with crushed chocolate wafer cookies (you can also substitute Oreo cookies with the filling removed), the chocolate cookie crust comes together quickly in a food processor. Press the crust evenly and firmly into a 9-inch pie pan, and freeze for 1 hour to set. After 1 hour, fill the pan with ice cream, smoothing with an offset spatula. Return the pie to the freezer and freeze until solid, 4-6 hours.

Vanilla Whipped Cream – For the vanilla whipped cream, beat heavy cream in a chilled mixer bowl with the wire whip attachment until cream begins to thicken. Gradually add powdered sugar, then add vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form.

Chocolate Fudge Sauce – Rich and delicious chocolate fudge sauce comes together quickly on the stovetop. Combine chocolate chips, salt, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and heavy cream in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, whisking until chocolate chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Whisk in vanilla and light corn syrup.

Pour fudge sauce into a glass bowl to cool slightly before using. You can make this sauce ahead and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to a week. Microwave the sauce in 10-second bursts in the microwave, stirring until smooth, before using.

Assemble and Serve – Pipe whipped cream over ice cream pie and freeze for 20 minutes. Dip a sharp knife in hot water and wipe dry before slicing ice cream pie. Serve slices topped with chocolate fudge sauce and chocolate shavings (or chocolate covered espresso beans!).

  1. This sounds so delicious and refreshing! Ice Cream desserts are my very favorite(other than pie) and since this combines both you know it’s going to happen! Just curious if you have a favorite brand of coffee ice cream?
