Butterfinger Ice Cream Pie
This ice cream pie is inspired by my favorite candy bar, the Butterfinger! We go way back. It's my Mom's favorite candy bar, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Isn't it funny how we tend to like the same foods and products as our parents? I can see my girls picking up likeness from both me and Daddy.
This sweet treat is easy to whip up, but it does need time to set up in the freezer for about 4 hours.
1 - graham cracker crust (Keebler)
1 - pint vanilla ice cream (Blue Bell), slightly softened
1 - container Cool Whip, thawed
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
12 fun size Butterfingers, or 3 regular size Butterfingers, chopped
In a large bowl, stir together softened ice cream, Cool Whip, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and chopped Butterfingers. Spread evenly into graham cracker crust. Cover and freeze for about 4 hours, or until firm.
Serve and garnish with Cool Whip and Butterfinger, if desired. Enjoy!
