Vanilla Chocolate Crunch Ice Cream Pie
1 1/4 cup Oreo Cookie Crumbs
1/4 cup melted butter
Press on bottom of 9 inch pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
1 cup (6 oz) semi sweet chocolate squares, chopped
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/4 cup heavy (double cream)
2 tbsp. light corn syrup
1 cup confectioners (icing) sugar, sifted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup Skor bits
1L tub of premium vanilla ice cream
Melt the chocolate, butter. cream and corn syrup on top of a double broiler. Set over but barely touching the simmering water. Stir constantly until chocolate has melted.
Add the sugar and vanilla to the chocolate mixture and mix well. Reserve 1/2 cup of the chocolate for the pie topping. Spread the remaining on the cookie crust. Sprinkle with half of the Skor bits. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
In a large bowl, using a paddle attachment, beat the ice cream with an electric mixer until spreadable but not runny. Pour immediately into the prepared pie plate and freeze until firm (about 2 hours).
Microwave the chocolate in 30 second intervals until spreadable. Remove, stirring quickly and spread onto the pie. Sprinkle with the remaining Skor bits and freeze until completely firm before serving. If you are making this ahead, remove from freezer about 10 minutes before serving to make cutting easier.
* If you do not like toffee bits, substitute for chopped, roasted almonds.
