This cold, refreshing pie will make you tingle from your taste buds all the way down to your toes and back up again! I found the recipe last summer in the June issue of All You.

Add the following ingredients to your shopping list:

For the Crust:

1 2/3 cups crushed chocolate wafers (from about 24 cookies)

1/4 cup sugar

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled

For the Filling:

2 1/2 cups malted milk balls

2 quarts vanilla ice cream, softened

1/2 cup malted milk powder

And for the Glaze:

7 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

1/2 cup heavy cream

Now let’s prepare the crust:

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Combine the wafers and sugar in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add your butter and pulse until crumbly, about 10 seconds. Press mixture evenly over the bottom and slightly up the sides of a 10-inch springform pan (the mixture will be dry). Bake until firm and set, 8 to 10 minutes. Let it cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.

Next, let’s prepare the filling:

2. Place the malted milk balls in a large ziplock bag. Seal the bag and crush the candies with a rolling pin. Set aside 1/2 cup of crushed candies for garnish. In a large bowl, stir the ice cream, malted milk powder and the remaining crushed candies. Spread evenly over the bottom of cooled crust, smoothing the top. Freeze until firm, at least 1 hour.

Now for the glaze:

Place the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl. Bring your cream to a boil in a small pan over medium-high heat. Pour over the chocolate and let sit for 2 minutes. Whisk until completely smooth. Working quickly, pour the glaze over your pie and spread evenly. Sprinkle with your reserved crushed candies. Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours or overnight.

4. Remove your cake from the freezer 10 minutes before serving and let it sit at room temperature. Just before serving, run a sharp knife around the pan edges, loosen pan sides and unmold to a plate. Use a sharp knife to cut your cake into wedges.

Enjoy!
