Reese Cup Ice Cream Pie

Hey everyone! Happy Memorial Day weekend to you all. Have I got a great treat for this holiday weekend. You are definitely going to want this at your get together, or just in general! My dad (hi pops!) used to make this exact pie but with butterfinger bars instead, and he would also add a packet of butterscotch pudding mix to it - just the dry part. That's what is so great about this recipe, it is SO versatile, make it how YOU want! I gave my hubby the option and he wanted reese cups, so that's what I made. I added some peanut butter to the ice cream before I mixed the candy in to give it some added flavor and I used the super chunky kind and it gave the pie a yummy addition of chopped peanuts, I would highly recommend using this. It is so easy and practically effortless. It will entail a little more work if you have to mix the candy bar into the ice cream by hand, but if you have a mixer then it's a cinch! Make this pie THIS weekend, you will not be disappointed!


Ingredients:
1 Graham Cracker Crust Pie Shell, store bought or homemade
8 Reese Cups, chopped into small pieces
Vanilla Ice Cream, half of a box container
2 Heaping Tablespoons Peanut Butter, super chunky


Directions:
Carefully take apart the ice cream container so that you can easily cut the block in half with a knife. Seal it back up and put in the freezer for a later use. Transfer the other half into your mixer and start mixing it until creamy. Add peanut butter, mix. Add chopped up candy and mix well. Pour into the pie shell and using a spatula, smooth the top over so it is all even. Cover and place in the freezer until frozen through. (I'd say about 5 hours, it's even better if you leave it overnight) Garnish with whipped cream and extra reese cups, if desired.

Daddy - Check out how easy it is in the mixer! Bet you wish you had one of these when you were mixing the crap out of it by hand. I bet it wasn't too hard for you though, you're super strong. :o)
