triple chocolate ice cream pie.


Ice Cream Pie Recipes
Ice Cream Pie

Something sweet for British Pie Week; an indulgent ice cream pie featuring Iceland'Bellissima Chocolate Italian Gelato. This week, the supermarket are embracing sweet and savoury recipes that "lift the lid on pies." I've never been one for warm apple pie or a cherry lattice, so when they got in touch to create a pie recipe, I knew there would be chocolate involved. 

Cue their droolworthy gelato within an ice cream pie and topped with thawed frozen raspberries. It's made up of white chocolate, chocolate and hazelnut ice cream - a dream trio if you ask me. You can make this super simple dessert ahead for dinner parties - what's more this recipe costs under a fiver to make too!

Iceland Gelato


Shopping list.
♥ 100g unsalted butter
♥ 200g of digestive biscuits, crushed. Plus extra to serve.
♥ A tub of Bellissima Chocolate Italian Gelato
♥ 8 frozen raspberries, thawed

Equipment; Saucepan, sandwich bag, rolling pin, 8" bottomless or silicone cake tin/mould, cling film.

Step one. Melt the butter in a saucepan on a low heat. Meanwhile crush your biscuits in a sandwich bag with a rolling pin. Mix together the butter and biscuits.

Step two. Line the cake mould with cling film and push down the biscuit to create the pie base and edge. Place in the freezer and blast for at least 30 minutes.

Step three. Scoop in the ice cream to the biscuit base. Leave aside the swirls of chocolate ripple until last as these give a lovely marbled effect to the top.

Put back in the freezer for at least an hour and you're done! When you're ready to serve, decorate with the raspberries and biscuit crumbs.

Slice up and enjoy! Remember you need to be speedy as this is rather time sensitive and you'll need to save for late (if there are leftovers) in the freezer. In fact I went back and had a slice whilst I wrote up this recipe. Yum!
