Rocky Road Ice Cream Pie
This tasty Rocky Road Ice Cream Cake is perfect served as a birthday cake, brunch dessert, or just a quick treat to have on hand for guests. And, best of all, making the cake couldn’t be easier. And you can make ahead, up to a week in advance! Just store in an airtight container in the freezer.
First, you want to make sure you start with softened chocolate ice cream. I usually like to keep mine at room temperature with the lid off for about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, fold together the mini marshmallows and sliced almonds, then pour the mixture into the pre-made graham cracker crust and freeze.

I realize you could just buy Rocky Road ice cream for this pie, however I find that the store bought is just plain lacking with toppings. Since it’s so easy to doctor up my own, I prefer to do it that way instead.
The topping is super simple as well. Firstly, soften the whipped topping by storing it in the refrigerator for an hour or two. Then use a hand mixer to combine the entire tub of marshmallow creme with the whipped topping. Spread it onto the pie and sprinkle on chopped almonds. Lastly, drizzle with melted chocolate.
And, that’s it! Super simple and super delicious. Just how dessert should be.
