Today is National Chocolate Chip Day in the United States in celebration of that most quintessential American sweet treat the chocolate chip cookie.
Seeing at it’s the height of summer and probably too hot for baking in the US, we thought we’d share a more summer friendly recipe with an Irish twist.
This ice cream pie is sure to make you friends around the pool. If your mouth isn't watering at the very sound of this dessert then you're off your rocker!
Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Pie
1 Oreo cookie crust
1 pint vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
3 cups whipped cream
cocoa powder for dusting
1. Allow the vanilla ice cream to soften on the countertop for about 1/2 hour. Then place it in a mixing bowl and stir in the Irish cream until it is completely incorporated into the ice cream. Gently fold in 1 cup of the whipped cream until just incorporated. Then stir in the chocolate chips.
2. Pour the ice cream mixture into the prepared pie crust and freeze it for at least 8 hours, or up to 2 days.
3. Right before serving top the pie with a thick layer of the remaining whipped cream and dust it with cocoa powder.
