1 - To make Mocha Latte Ice Cream Pie, all you need is 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!
2 - Use your favorite brownie mix to make prep easier. I use Ghriardelli Double Chocolate (ad) brownie mix because it's delicious and foolproof.
3 - After the brownie bakes for 30 minutes, let it cool for about 1 hour. Next, 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.
4 - Pop it in the freezer for 1 hour and you're ready to serve this amazing Mocha Latte Ice Cream Pie to family and friends!
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!
Bake it for only 30 minutes so it will stay soft and freeze well. Otherwise the brownie might be too hard to cut while frozen.
If you don't like coffee, vanilla ice cream works well in this recipe too. You'll lose the 'mocha' flavor, but it will still taste amazing.
It's easy to toast pecans. Just mix with melted butter and sprinkle on a sheet pan. Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 5 minutes. Watch closely to make sure they don't burn. Sprinkle with salt and cool before using.
- Only bake the brownie crust for 30 minutes to make sure it stays fudgy after freezing.
- Store leftovers (if any) in an airtight container.
- Allow pie to thaw for at least 5 minutes before serving.
- Watch pecans carefully while toasting to make sure they don't burn.
