This delicious Frozen Malt Shop Whoppers Pie is cool, creamy and loaded with ice cream and malted milk candy. You'll love this easy-to-make dessert!
Is it too early in the year to be thinking about ice cream and other frozen desserts? I hope not, because personally, I could eat ice cream all year round!
And I've been feeling kind of down lately, which makes me want to focus on happy thoughts. And happy thoughts include ice cream. I mean, you really can't feel bad when you're eating ice cream, especially when it's part of an extra special dessert!
I made this ice cream pie last year to celebrate the end of the school year and the start of a fun summer, and it originally appeared over at Somewhat Simple. But since the kids only have about three more months left of school, and spring break is around the corner, this frozen malt shop Whoppers pie is calling my name!
Besides, I've been super good about eating healthy, so yes, I can do this and not feel guilty!
I got the idea for this ice cream pie recipe on the back of a carton of Whoppers candy -- imagine that! Well actually, the kids suggested it, but this frozen dessert sounded so good that I just had to try it. It's also super easy to make.
As usual, I made a few changes to the original recipe. I can't help it, and I do this all the time -- do you? Anyway, I mixed equal parts of chocolate and vanilla ice cream together. I also used a chocolate graham cracker crust instead of regular because the more chocolate, the merrier, right?!
