Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie

I'm sure you've all heard me gush over Smart & Final and their #sfsmarties blogging program before. If not, here's another chance! Smart & Final asked me to blog about a recipe using their First Street house-brand ice cream, and I came up with an ice cream pie that's had my family raving for days.

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter (I used creamy, but chunky would work too)
1/4 cup honey
4 cups First Street vanilla ice cream
One graham cracker pie crust (I used my homemade graham cracker pie crust recipe)
1/2 cup peanuts
1/2 cup hot fudge topping (I used my homemade hot fudge recipe)
4 ounces Cool Whip (that's half of the small Cool Whip container)

ice cream pie chopped peanuts

Chop the peanuts or crush them using a bag and rolling pin.

In a large bowl, combine the ice cream, peanut butter and honey.

Spoon half the ice cream mixture onto the graham cracker pie crust.

homemade Ice Cream Pie peanuts

Top the ice cream with half the chopped nuts.

chocolate ice cream pie

Top the pie with half the heated hot fudge topping. The ice cream may begin to melt when you do this. If it does, place it in the freezer and freeze before continuing to the next step.

Layer the other half of the ice cream onto the pie.

cool whip ice cream pie

Spread the Cool Whip onto the last ice cream layer.

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie hot fudge

Drizzle half of the remaining heated hot fudge on top of the Cool Whip. The pie may start to melt again when you do this, but you should be able to complete the next steps quickly enough that you don't need to freeze the pie again between steps.

Top the pie with the remaining peanuts.
