Chances are you’ve had one of these frozen dessert cream pies before. They are such classics, easy to make and extremely versatile. I’ve used this same basic recipe to make frozen grasshopper pie, butterfinger pie and ton of other quick, no-bake frozen pies.
Lately though, I’ve been all about Reese’s so we’re gonna be making a Frozen Reese’s Pie! We call this “cookout pie” because it never fails for someone to bring one of these babies to a cookout. It’s a real crowd-pleaser. I think it’s actually called a candy bar pie since you can use your favorite crushed candy bars or a variety of candy bars as the topping.
This frozen Reese’s pie is for true chocolate peanut butter lovers. It’s rich, creamy and packs a lot of chocolately-peanut buttery flavor. The texture is like ice cream and frozen cheesecake. A little slice goes a long way.
I make these frozen pies a lot in the summer time when I want a cold desert without having to turn on the oven.
NOTE* In my video I didn’t have time to let it freeze overnight, only for about 4 hours and it resulted in a slighty firm & creamy texture that we actually really liked. So if you’re going for a really firm texture freeze overnight but if you’re going for the texture in the video freeze for about 4 hours.
Watch me make this Frozen Reese’s Pie from start to finish!
