Almond Joy Ice Cream Pie
Almond Joy Ice Cream Pie is extraordinary! This spectacular ice cream pie is like eating Almond Joy Bars but in ice cream form! This is an incredibly easy 4-ingredient recipe. ANYONE can make this easy recipe, including young children. It’s that easy. I used a chocolate crust, Blue Bell chocolate chip ice cream, coconut and sliced almonds. That’s all. Easy, check. Delicious, check. Decadent, check. A dessert to die for, check, check check!
To make this recipe you first soften the ice cream. I think I had the container out on my counter about 15-20 minutes before it was soft enough to start stirring. Add almonds and coconut. Stir everything together. Then pile the ice cream mixture into the chocolate pie shell. Freeze, then serve. That’s easy, easy, E-A-S-Y!
Back in late January, I served a couple of these ice cream pies to our young adult (college-aged) group. We had them over for dinner for Pot Roast and all the trimmings. I served this amazing ice cream pie for dessert. I got a lot of oooohs and aaaahhhhs over it. One of the gals wanted the recipe and has made it for her family multiple times. 🙂
The nice thing about this dessert is it’s elegant and festive for any holiday. Almond Joy Ice Cream Pie is terrific for holidays like Easter, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. But it’s also wonderful for other holidays and special occasions like Valentine’s Day or Christmas. Having a dessert that includes only 4 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes to make is also a big plus! I added chocolate sauce and maraschino cherries for decoration. But you don’t have to unless you want to be fancy.
Almond Joy Ice Cream Pie is the ultimate in a dessert experience. It is so good you will find yourself cleaned out of pie in no time. The ingredients actually fit in two chocolate pie crusts. So make one for now and freeze one for later!

Add coconut and almonds.
Stir to combine.
Set out chocolate pie crust.
Pour ice cream filling into chocolate crust. (The filling is enough for two chocolate pie crusts).
Freeze pie several hours until ready to serve.
If desired, you can drizzle chocolate sauce over top of the pie and garnish with maraschino cherries.
