Sprinkle Ice Cream Pie Recipe with Rice Krispie Crust
This whimsical ice cream pie recipe is perfect for any summer party – kids will love the sprinkles and adults will love the vanilla beans and white chocolate ganache.
Ever since I shared my coffee ice cream pie with whiskey ganache with you guys, I’ve been a little smitten with ice cream pies. They are a fairly impressive dessert with really minimal hands-on effort. Those are my favorite kind of recipes. Easy but looks complicated. Fools everyone and paints the picture that you’re a total champ. Which you are, of course.
And can I tell you how my kids’ eyes lit up when I told them they could eat some of this pie? They were on cloud 9…and rightfully so! Sprinkles, ice cream, and rice krispies? Oh yeah, kid heaven here.
So, as I was saying, ice cream pie is really simple to make. You start with a crust of your choice – this one has rice krispie cereal (or crispy rice cereal if you go with an off-brand) and white chocolate as the crust. And sprinkles!
Then, of course, the ice cream, because without ice cream, it isn’t an ice cream pie recipe. I keep things simple and classy with vanilla bean ice cream.
To top off the pie, I would highly recommend some toppings. For this recipe, we use white chocolate ganache and sprinkles. If you’re in a rush and want to keep things simple, you could easily just toss some sprinkles on top and call it a day, but the mixture of heavy cream and chocolate (white, in this case) is always going to kick things up a notch. I love that when you slice this pie, the white chocolate kind of runs down the sides of the slice. I use a super hot knife to slice the pie so it melts right through that ganache and ice cream.
Happy summer! Celebrate these warm days with ice cream pie.
Have you tried making an ice cream terrine yet? Terrines are impressive looking and easy to make. I just love this ice cream terrine with roasted strawberries. This sweet and salty ice cream terrine by Cookies & Cups looks so good, too.
