Directions

  1. Combine the gingersnap crumbs, confectioners' sugar and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Spoon chocolate ice cream into crust; freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips with cream over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; add vanilla. Cool. Spread half of the chocolate sauce over chocolate ice cream; freeze until set, about 1 hour.
  3. Spoon vanilla ice cream over chocolate sauce; freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Spread remaining chocolate sauce evenly over pie; freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight. Remove from the freezer 5-10 minutes before serving. Garnish with sweetened whipped cream and a cherry if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: This dessert takes time to make since each layer must be set before the next layer is added.
