Chocolate Hazelnut Caramel Ice Cream Pie
We made picking Jack up at college for the summer into a little road trip. We took our time driving back and visited friends in Nashville and Alabama. Because we had so much time in the car, I brought along my recently unearthed RECIPE BINDER filled with magazine-clipped recipes I'd forgotten all about.
With Jack trapped in the car, I asked him to go through the binder and pull some recipes he'd like to have over summer break. This was one of them…Chocolate Hazelnut Caramel Ice Cream Pie.
This is an EASY recipe…and a showstopper. Mr. E thought I'd bought it at an ice cream shop! It's not even a recipe, really, more like an assembly of ingredients.
I modified it a bit by using more ice cream and a bit of flaky sea salt on the top. That salt balances everything else out just beautifully. The hazelnuts on top add the perfect crunch.
Start with a chocolate pie crust. You can make you're own, but this way is perfectly acceptable.
