Mocha Latte Ice Cream Pie starts with a delicious brownie crust, followed by coffee ice cream, then topped with chocolate syrup and toasted pecans. Have mercy!
Can you say Mocha Latte three times fast? For the life of me, I can't do it. But, if you asked me to eat a piece of Mocha Latte Ice Cream Pie three times fast...I bet I could give it a go. 🙂
Okay, I'm not kidding here...this frozen pie is swoon-worthy. It's definitely date-night worthy. Heck, I can't think of any night it wouldn't be worthy. It's just that good.
How to Make Mocha Latte Ice Cream Pie
To make this bad boy, you need a box of brownie mix, chocolate shell syrup, coffee ice cream, and toasted pecans. I toast the pecans and add a little salt for the perfect flavor. This step makes a big difference!
Use your favorite brownie mix to make life easier. I use Ghriardelli Double Chocolate (ad) brownie mix because it's delicious and foolproof. Here's another tip: bake it for only 30 minutes so it will still be soft and freeze well. Otherwise, the brownie might be too hard to cut while frozen.
After the brownie bakes in a deep dish pie plate, spread softened ice cream on top. If you can't find coffee ice cream in your grocery store, any flavor will do. However, the coffee flavor makes this pie a Mocha Latte. Sprinkle it with toasted pecans, then swirl chocolate shell syrup on top.
Pop it in the freezer for 1 hour and you're ready to serve my amazing Mocha Latte Ice Cream Pie!
How to Make Whipped Cream
What's a Mocha Latte without whipped cream? I'm not talking about the kind you get out of a can. I'm talkin' bout the homemade vanilla whipped cream that makes this pie stand above the rest.
To make whipped cream, simply pour heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl. Beat with mixer for 3 to 5 minutes until soft peaks form.
Mix in powdered sugar and vanilla. Whip until smooth. Serve a dollop of whipped cream on top of each slice of pie. Top with a cherry if you wish!
Why You'll Love This Pie
Fortunately, the neighbors are my guinea pigs. They don't seem to mind. I invited them over for a taste test, and they gave this pie their overwhelming stamp of approval!
They loved the toasted pecan topping and the fudge brownie crust. And, the mocha coffee ice cream was a nice surprise. This pie is perfect for just about any occasion...including birthdays! It would make an awesome birthday cake.
Summer's winding down...so help stop the madness! Make this Mocha Latte Ice Cream Pie in memory of sweltering heat...and nights in front of the fan.
