S’mores Ice Cream Pies
These mini ice cream pies are a fun, delicious, and super simple treat for your holiday hooplas. It’s been a few months since the end of “traditional” s’moresseason; enjoy the same flavors repackaged into something a bit unexpected.
I used the milk chocolate ice cream recipe found in Big Gay Ice Cream Book. Good store-bought ice cream will work just fine.
About 3 hours, of which only 20 minutes are active.
45 minutes to temper store-bought ice cream
15 minutes to assemble pies
2 hours (preferably more) hours to harden the pies in the freezer
5 minutes to brûlée and finish
One package Keebler mini Graham cracker pie crusts (one package contains six crusts
3 cups (1.5 pints) chocolate ice cream
5 oz mini marshmallows
OPTIONAL FINISHING TOUCHES
A bit of Maldon salt
Chocolate syrup- I used the Awesomesauce, our spicy chocolate syrup found in Big Gay Ice Cream Book
brûlée torch (optional)
Take ice cream out of the freezer and move it to the refrigerator for about 45 minutes. It needs to be soft enough to spread into the pie crusts.
Place all the crusts on a small baking sheet and set in the freezer.
When ice cream is ready to be spread take crusts out of freezer. Use a large spoon to fill the crusts with ice cream. Be gentle as you fill- the crusts will want to pull up with the ice cream.
When the crusts are all filled pat some mini-marshmallows slightly into the ice cream.
The moment you finish placing the marshmallows cover baking sheet with the filled pie shells with plastic wrap and place in the the freezer. Allow the pies about two hours to fully harden. You can leave them into the freezer for about four hours- after that the marshmallows start fading.
When ready to serve remove the crusts from the freezer. Tap the crusts out of the foil pans if you wish. Lightly brûlée the marshmallows. Finish with a pinch of Maldon salt and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
Just remember- we tend to get a little tipsy at holiday parties so always having a designated torcher! You don’t want to set the elf-on-the-shelf’s tights ablaze.
