"This recipe combines the flavors of coffee and chocolate into an ice cream pie. For something different, try using coffee or chocolate chip ice cream in place of vanilla." — ARVILLALAR

Four stars as written, but not difficult to elevate to 5- star perfection. First, half a cup of butter in the crust is excessive and I can only see that the crust would be greasy, just saturated with butter. Half that amount worked well. Second, when I ran the recipe by Hubs and asked for his thoughts he remarked, “Sounds like an awful lot of hooch to me.” My sentiments exactly – not only a lot of “hooch,” but the boldly flavored coffee liqueur at that; 10 T. total! Not wanting to take chances on a too boozy flavored outcome, I made some changes. I did use the 6 T. of coffee liqueur in the chocolate filling (I used Kahlua) but I added nothing to the vanilla ice cream. To the chocolate ice cream I added 2 T. of the more subtle Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur and skipped the Kahlua altogether. The Kahlua/Bailey’s combination worked well together; a pleasant amount of liqueur flavor without tasting like a frozen cordial. Also, this pie will only be as good as the ingredients you use – a homemade chocolate cookie crumb crust made with real butter, premium quality ice cream (Hubs did a fine job shopping for that for me), and fresh whipped cream. I topped the entire pie with chocolate curls, then served each slice with a garnish of whipped cream, mint leaves and chocolate covered coffee beans. This couldn’t be a simpler dessert to prepare and you couldn’t ask for prettier, more delicious results. This may just be a redo for Christmas when the kids all come home!
This is one of the best ice cream desserts I have had in a long time. Its unique flavor is punctuated by the Kahlua. Everyone at my dinner party enjoyed this flavorful concoction. I used coffee ice cream and chocolate ice cream. This is definitely an adult dessert, so I had to make a separate cake without the Kahlua for the grandchildren. Thanks Arvila!
I loved it and our guests loved it. I used an Oreo store bought crust which made it even easier. I didn't have chocolate ice cream, so added chocolate syrup to the top layer of ice cream with the Kahlua. Watch out for that middle chocolate layer - it will get you. Perfect to take to someone's house - easy, impressive, yummy!
I am very proud because I made this pie with home made Coffee Liqueur and even made ice-cream myself. I used 5 ingredient ice-cream from this site, it makes exactly 2 pints, so I just added a couple of teaspoons of cocoa powder into 1 pint. It was even easier than with store bought ice-cream, as I didn't have to defrost it to blend in Coffee Liqueur. Very satisfying taste, though I would recommend using good commercially produced ice-cream for a creamier pie. And it is easy and impressive looking!
This is amazing! I used a store bought oreo pie crust to save time. I added a french vanilla kahlua to the vanilla ice cream and used a mocha kahlua for the choclate ice cream and choclate sauce. Not sure if the flavored kahlua made a difference in taste or not, I was just using what I had on hand. I added cool whip as a topping with a decorative coating of melted choclate. Will be making this again and again. Thank You for sharing!
I cannot believe how easy this is and so few people have tried this wonderful dessert. By using a premade Oreo cookie pie crust and Cool Whip, this was a breeze to make for Valentine's Day. We both thought it's one of our favorite desserts. If you like mud pie, you'll love this!
Oh wow, this was quite good. I could not find chocolate wafers, so I used a pre-made chocolate crust instead. Also, instead of whipped cream on top, I sprinkled finely crushed Oreos. The crunch was a great contrast to the creamy ice cream. Will definitely be making again.
quite nice but needs quite a bit of time for all the refreezes.
