One The Menu: Ice Cream Pie

On the Menu: Ice Cream Pie
Any treat involving lots of candy and ice cream cannot possibly be bad. My favorite thing about this easy dessert is that involves my childhood favorite, Reese's Cup. You can mix this together in just a few minutes in the morning, pop it in the freezer, and have a delicious dessert at dinner. Topped with a scandalous amount of caramel sauce of course.

Ingredients:
Crust:
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbles
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
Filling:
4 cups vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 cups peanut butter cups, roughly chopped
1 cup Kit-Kat bars, roughly chopped
Caramel Sauce:
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup half-and-half
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla

Directions:
1. For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix crust ingredients together until well blended and press into an 8 or 9 inch pie pan. Then bake for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
2. For the ice cream filling: Remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow to soften slightly. Mix in the candy and pour the ice cream mixture into the crust. Cover with foil and freeze until very hard, 1 to 2 hours.
3. For the caramel sauce: Mix the brown sugar, half-and-half, butter and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, while whisking gently, until thicker, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the vanilla and cook another minute to thicken further. Pour the sauce into a jar. Can be used while hot or refrigerate until cold.
4. Serve slices of pie drizzled with the caramel sauce.
