Twix Ice Cream Pie

Twix Ice Cream Pie on This Gal Cooks #dessert

This pie. Crazy freaking good.

Ken’s birthday was last week. He likes ice cream. A lot. He also likes carrot cake but this post isn’t about carrot cake, it’s about ice cream. So we’re gonna talk about ice cream today and we’ll talk about carrot cake another time.

Once day I was walking around the grocery store and I get this text message from Ken: “Cold Stone Birthday Cake Explosion Ice Cream.” No joke, that’s all the text message said. Of course, after I replied with a “what are you talking about?”, I didn’t get a response. But I figured he wanted birthday cake ice cream. And I wasn’t going to head over to Cold Stone. After all, I was in the middle of grocery shopping. And our grocery store just happens to have a mad selection of ice cream, including birthday cake ice cream.

So I picked up a carton of birthday cake ice cream and went on my way. Ken was happy. I think he dug into that carton shortly after I got home. It may or may not have made it into our freezer before he got himself a big ole bowl of it.

Fast forward a couple weeks and you have Ken’s birthday. I made him these crazy good carrot cake bars by Averie Cooks but the real highlight of the day was the ice cream pie.

For some reason, my sweet tooth has gone into full fledge GIVE ME NOW mode. On this particular ice cream pie making weekend, I picked up a package of mini Twix, a jar of salted caramel sauce and an organic version of OREO cookies from the grocery store. The organic OREO-ish cookies didn’t go into this ice cream pie but I threw them in that list to give you an idea of how crazy for sweets I’ve been lately.

A while back I saw this Chocolate Candy Bar Ice Cream Pie by Chocolate Chocolate and More and I was like WHOA! I gotta make that! Or something like that. Ken isn’t into chocolate ice cream so I made a pie with vanilla ice cream. Vanilla ice cream, Twix and salted caramel sauce. Twix Ice Cream Pie. I bet you’re starting to drool right about now, aren’t you?

    La la la la … I’m not listening!!!!! I am on a mission in July to lose a few lbs and holy (birthday) cow this looks good. And one of my fave candy bars too?? Lalalalalaaaaa – pinning for later and shutting out this “evil” for a few more weeks.

    Well, my birthday is in a week so… maybe. ;)

    You know, my birthday is coming up. And I think texts with only ice cream names is a good hint hint. ;) Twix and caramel sauce with ice cream, now THAT is the way to do ice cream pie! And hooray for birthday sprinkles! Pinned!

    I REALLY wish I had a slice of this ice cream pie right now! Not only am I an ice cream fanatic but Twix is my favorite candy. It’s so hot right now and this would be the perfect treat to cool me off, love it!

    My goodness, I actually started drooling the moment I saw your first picture! This is a genius idea to make a pie out of ice cream. If you don’t mind me saying, it’s crazy what you can buy over there in the USA. Birthday cake ice cream? Yes, crazy, but I’m in! :-)

      Haha, totally agree with you, Helen! There are some crazy food items that can be bought here in the US. It’s pretty amusing! Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

    Twix is the candy bar I sneak into my grocery cart in the check out line, eat in the car on the way home and then throw out the wrapper so I don’t have to tell my son why I didn’t share with him! Ha! Love that stuff. This pie would be my choice for a birthday celebration or just any old day too. It’s a beauty!

    I have had this recipe bookmarked forever, and I finally made it. Yum! My entire family loved it. It is pretty easy to put together, unless you use homemade ingredients (ice cream, graham cracker crust, and caramel sauce) like I did I used Twix fun size bars (about 10) because I didn’t have the bites. Thanks for a terrific recipe!
