Twix Ice Cream Pie-shortbread cookie crust with a layer of chocolate, vanilla ice cream, chopped Twix candy bars, and salted caramel sauce. This ice cream pie is almost too good to be true!
It’s a good thing I eat a lot of salads during the hot summer months because I also eat a lot of ice cream. They balance each other out:)
My current favorite ice cream treat is this Twix Ice Cream Pie. You guys, it is all kinds of wonderful. Here is the low down, shortbread cookie crust with a layer of chocolate, vanilla ice cream, chopped up Twix candy bars, and salted caramel sauce. Sounds heavenly, right? Yep, it is and you need to make it ASAP!
I don’t buy candy bars very often, only when I want to make a special dessert. If they are incorporated into a recipe that somehow makes them better for me. I think it takes away the calories. Shhh. I know that is crazy thinking, but I don’t care:)
Our family loves Twix candy bars so I thought it would be fun to use them in a fun summer dessert.
I started with shortbread cookies. I didn’t make my own, I just used store bought cookies. Sometimes it is ok to cheat:) I combined the shortbread cookie crumbs with melted butter and pressed them into a pie plate. I baked the crust for 10 minutes and had a perfect pie crust. Easy peasy!
Next, I added melted chocolate to the bottom of the shortbread pie crust. Shortbread cookie crust with chocolate? All kinds of YES! I let the chocolate harden in the freezer while I stirred up my ice cream.
I added chopped up Twix candy bars and salted caramel sauce to softened vanilla ice cream. I wanted to eat the entire bowl with a spoon, but I knew the pie would be worth the wait, so I poured the ice cream mixture into my crust. I garnished the pie with more Twix candy bars and a drizzle of salted caramel sauce. Swoon!
I put the pie in the freezer for a couple of hours so the ice cream could set up. The wait seemed like FOREVER! I kept pacing back and forth by the freezer. I couldn’t stand the suspense. I wanted a piece of pie!
When the pie was ready, I took it out of the freezer and cut it into slices. I took a few quick photos for all of you and then I sat down with my glorious piece of pie. It was well worth the wait. This Twix Ice Cream Pie is AH-mazing! I loved every single bite.
If you are looking for the ultimate ice cream dessert for summertime, look no further, this Twix Ice Cream Pie is IT! Enjoy!

I was going to start my day with a big bowl of hearty, healthy oatmeal.
But, then I saw this and I feel that eating this instead would be a much better life choice 😉 Looks amazing! Pinned!
Twix, ice cream and pie?!?! Those are probably three of my favorite words ever and all in one sentence! This looks out of this world and I really want to make this but I don’t dare until I have somewhere to bring it or I would eat it all! This looks great and thank you for posting!
Yep, gotta live a good candy bar recipe-this looks crazy good!
A perfect summer time dessert.
Uhhh, I’m in love with a pie. And I’m with you- salads + ice cream are basically my two staples of summer eating. It all works out wonderfully 🙂
Twix is my favorite candy of all time! Can’t wait to make this pie!!
Looks delish and there’s nothing wrong with “cheating” on your crust 🙂
I need this, I love Twix!
Wow!! This is something I need in front of me now!
Agree. Definitely cheat on the crust. If I’m going to make shortbread cookies, I want to EAT the cookies, not smash them up for something else. Oh, this looks stellar.
well that looks like perfection to me!! perfect for this hot weather, we’re having!!
holy cow!! (no pun intended) this look so unbelievably good!!
What a decadently delicious ice cream pie!

Oh my gosh! The pie looks so yummy and delicious! The photo makes me want to eat it immediately. I will make it for my party next Sunday. Thanks for your tutorial.
I love this twix ice cream pie so much. Sounds good. Next week is my sister’s birthday. I will make one for her. She would be surprised about my cooking talent haha! Thanks for this useful recipe. I don’t know if she likes it or not because this pie seems to have bunch of protein and lipit in it 😀
I made this pie last night and it tasted amazing- only problem was the crust was so hard, it couldn’t be cut with any utensil! I followed the recipe exactly- any idea why my crust would be so hard?
