The dog days of summer have officially arrived. We’re spending as much time as possible in the comfort of air conditioning, swimming pools, and with cold drinks in hand, but nothing helps us beat the heat quite like a scoop or two of our favorite ice cream piled high in a cone.
With July being National Ice Cream Month, it seemed only fitting that we dig up some of our favorite homemade ice cream recipes like no-churn Pepsi & Peanuts Ice Cream and Fireball Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream. Sometimes we like to switch it up with ice cream cake or even ice cream pie. We recently discovered an ice cream pie creation that is so amazing we’ll be making all year round.
Chubby Hubby Ice Cream Pie is the brainchild of Jocelyn at Inside BruCrew Life and was inspired by Ben & Jerry’s iconic Chubby Hubby ice cream flavor. Jocelyn took the vanilla malt ice cream loaded with pretzels, chocolate and peanut butter to the next level by converting it into a pie that is perfect for a summer cookout or to serve to dinner guests any time of year. As if the salty sweet goodness of this dessert wasn’t enough, it is also no-bake!
Start by making a 3-ingredient pretzel crust and pressing it into a springform or pie pan. Then make the ice cream filling using heavy whipping cream, malt powder, cream cheese, sweetened condensed, and plenty of chocolate-covered pretzel pieces. Top with dollops of hot fudge and peanut butter and swirl to your heart’s content. Freeze until ready to serve!
This delightful summery treat will not disappoint! Go shopping for the ingredients listed below, then visit Inside BruCrew Life for step-by-step instructions for how to make Chubby Hubby Ice Cream Pie by clicking here.
