S'mores Ice Cream Pie #IceCreamWeek

If you're in the mood for something sweet to start of #IceCreamWeek and celebrate National Ice Cream Pie Day, then this S'mores Ice Cream Pie is the perfect treat for you!


Welcome to Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of  The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to bring you ice cream treats all week long. I hope you have as much fun as we did. Break out those stretchy pants and celebrate Ice Cream Week with us.


I can't wait to share all the wonderful ice cream treats this week, from pie, to milkshakes, and even homemade ice cream! S'mores are a favorite campfire ritual. With Summer ending (in other parts of the country) I thought it would be fun to put my favorite camping treat into ice cream form. This pie is full of s'more goodness and I hope you enjoy!

  7. I love S'mores any old way, but have never had it a S'mores Ice Cream Pie! This needs to change!!! I totally want a kitchen torch, but my family doesn't think it's such a good idea haha. Maybe I can get them to change their minds by showing them your beautiful pie!

    1. Kitchen torches are so much fun. Mr L&C always says that if i use the torch, have the fire extinguisher within reach just in case. Mostly because I don't have one of the small (not worth the money) torches, but a hardware store torch that definitely means business.
