It is super hot outside and the perfect time to make this German Chocolate Ice Cream Pie. I call it a pie because it’s got a cookie crust but It sort of looks like a cake. You can call it a cake or a pie. Doesn’t really matter. What matters is that it’s UNBELIEVABLY delicious! Instead of the traditional chocolate cake, it’s got a chocolate cookie crust, then a layer of German Chocolate ice cream topped with a classic coconut pecan frosting. Then drizzled with chocolate ganache. NO. BIG. DEAL.
