Dulce de Leche Ice Cream Pie

I think I’ve developed an obsession for cool and creamy summer pies. First there was Lemon Icebox Pie, then Pink Lemonade Pie, followed by Millionaire Pie.

Dulce de Leche ice cream (I used Hagen Daz) makes up the filling of the pie along with some Mocha Fudge Sauce mixed in. Plus lots more Mocha Fudge Sauce drizzled on top.

The only time consuming part is making the sauce, but it’s worth it.

You do also have to take the pie in and out of the freezer multiple times. Again, worth it.

You’ll have extra sauce leftover which can be refrigerated and reheated. Drizzle it over ice cream or serve it with pancakes instead of maple syrup. It would probably be good on some oatmeal or mixed into a smoothie.

So many things you can do with it and the chocolate-coffee flavor is irresistible.
