another mix and match recipe

Here is another mix and match recipe. My hubby wanted a homemade chocolate peanut butter ice cream pie for his birthday. So I mixed and matched recipes to make it perfect!

(sorry for the super lame picture....we ate it so fast I forgot to take a better one)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie 
original recipes from here and here.

1 box Oreo Cookies
6 tbsp melted butter
2 cups half and half
1/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 bottle hot microwavable hot fudge
1 pack of Reese Peanut Butter Cups


1. Finely crush about 25 Oreos in a food processor. Mix with melted butter and spread in the bottom of a 9" round pan for the crust. Freeze.

2. Meanwhile, in a large sauce pan, combine the half and half, cocoa powder, sugar, and salt; whisk. Heat the mixture until it comes to a full boil. Continue to whisk. When the mixture starts to foam remove it from the heat and add the peanut butter, whisking to blend thoroughly. Refrigerate the mixture until it is completely chilled. Finish by following the directions on your ice cream maker.

3. Scoop the ice cream on the frozen crust. Drizzle hot fudge on top. Crush remaining Oreos and cut the Peanut Butter Cups into pieces and sprinkle on top.
