1 (4-oz.) semisweet chocolate baking bar, finely chopped
1 (3.5-oz.) package roasted glazed pecan pieces
1 pt. chocolate ice cream, softened
1 pt. coffee ice cream, softened
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup coffee liqueur
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together 2 1/2 cups cinnamon graham cracker crumbs and next 2 ingredients; firmly press mixture on bottom and up sides of a lightly greased 9-inch pie plate. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on a wire rack (about 30 minutes).
Stir together semisweet chocolate, pecan pieces, and remaining 1/2 cup cinnamon graham cracker crumbs. Reserve 1/2 cup chocolate-pecan mixture to top pie.
Spread chocolate ice cream in bottom of prepared crust; top with remaining chocolate-pecan mixture. Freeze 30 minutes. Spread coffee ice cream over chocolate mixture. Cover and freeze 8 hours.
Beat whipping cream and coffee liqueur at medium speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream mixture over pie; sprinkle with reserved 1/2 cup chocolate-pecan mixture. Cover and freeze 1 hour or until whipped cream is firm. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
This was easy to make and good. How could you screw up Breyers? I altered it only by using more ice cream than called for, occasionally, you could experience a bit of heat from the pepper, which, IMO didn't make a difference in taste one way or the other. I would make it again, however I would omit the pepper, use less graham cracker crumbs, because I thought the crust was too thick and use semi-sweet chocolate pieces instead of using a chocolate bar.
