Heath Bar Freezer Pie

Now that I’m almost done with the recipes for our church Youth Conference, you’d think I be finished with the desserts….

Never!!  (Even if I wanted to, Jeff wouldn’t let me.)

Nope.  Now I’ve been working on the Camping Recipes for a Young Men’s Super Activity at the local lake.  What do you feed 45 young men and their leaders who have spent a hot day water skiing, skeet shooting and mountain biking?  Plenty of ice-cold, yummy desserts, that’s what.  And of course chocolate has to be in the mix somewhere……

So let’s start with this Heath Bar Freezer Pie.

It’s one of 3 freezer pies I made for the camp out.  Here are the other 2 pies I made: Birthday Cake Freezer Pie (creamy vanilla ice cream loaded with chunks of birthday cake, frosting and sprinkles) and a real favorite – Oh Yeah Momma Freezer Pie.  I’ll be adding the recipes shortly.  In the meantime, check out my Camping Recipes page.  I’ll be adding those recipes soon as well.

Welcome to Aloha Dreams!

I'm so glad you dropped by.  I'm Betsy.  Here you'll find my favorite fabulous, trusted recipes - everything from delicious, quick meals for your family to wonderful classics made easy.

The process is so simple, I almost hate to call it a recipe.  Just chop up the heath bars, like so.

Mix them with the softened ice cream.  Mound it in the pre-made Oreo cookie pie shell.  Cover with the topping mixture, sprinkle on more Heath Bars and freeze.  It’s really easy!

By the way – in case you’re wondering what happens if you turn your pie crust upside down to brush several crumbs from the bottom onto your plate for an especially realistic “artistic composition”, THIS happens.

Just sayin’…..

Don’t forget to check out the new Campfire Menu & Recipes page.  I’m adding the recipes as we speak.

Heath Bar Freezer Pie
Prep Time

One of the tricks to making pies look amazingly decadant is a high dome.  Spreading 12 ounces of whipped topping on this freezer pie accomplished that!  You will look marvelous darling.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 servings
Author: Betsy Edwards
Ingredients
For the Crust (or you can use a pre-made chocolate Oreo crust)
  • 1 Oreo cookie chocolate pie crust
For the Pie
  • 48 ounces vanilla Ice Cream
  • 8 full size Heath candy bars
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) tub frozen whipped topping thawed
  • chocolate syrup , optional
For Storage of the Pie(s)
  • 2-4 pounds dry ice
Instructions
  1. Several hours prior to preparing: Place whipped topping in refrigerator to thaw. Set out the cream cheese to soften.  Place the Heath Bars in the freezer.  

  2. When ready to begin preparation, set out the ice cream to soften.

  3. Chop 6 of the frozen Heath candy bars into bite-sized chunks.  (You'll be holding back the other 2 of the 8 bars for the topping.)

  4. Once the ice cream is soft enough to stir with some effort, mix in the frozen Heath Bar chunks.  

  5. Gently add the ice cream mixture to the pie crust, being careful not to tear the bottom or sides of the crust.  Mound the ice cream mixture in the crust and cover with plastic.  Place in freezer for at least 2 hours.

  6. Meanwhile, In a large bowl combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar. Whisk together until well combined.

  7. Fold in 1 tub (12 ounces) of the thawed whipped topping.

  8. Stir until combined. Remove the pie from the freezer and spoon the cream cheese mixture over the ice cream. Use an offset spatula or butter knife to gently and evenly spread the filling.

  9. Rough chop the 2 remaining Heath bars into bite size pieces.  Sprinkle onto the pie.

  10. Cover and freeze at least 3 hours.
MAKE AHEAD NOTE:
  1. Can be made to this point and frozen, gently wrapped with plastic wrap for up to 1 month.  To transport the pie to the campout, place in a cooler sitting on a bag of ice with several pounds dry ice in a bag to the side to maintain the temperature.

  2. When ready to serve, cut into pieces.  Optional - drizzle with chocolate syrup.
