Ingredients
  

For the pretzel crust:

  • 2 cups crushed pretzels
  • 1/4 cup light brown¬†sugar
  • 8 tablespoons butter melted

For the pie:

  • 3 cups Private Selection Denali Moose Tracks Ice Cream softened
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 10 peanut butter cups chopped
  • Peanut Butter Hot Fudge for drizzling over pie

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the crushed pretzels, sugar, and melted butter in a bowl. Stir until combined. Press the pretzel mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the ice cream and peanut butter. Pour the ice cream mixture into the cooled pretzel pie crust. Smooth with a spatula and top with the chopped up peanut butter cups.¬†Place pie in freezer and freeze until ice cream hardens, at least 2 hours.
  • When ready to serve, remove pie from freezer. Drizzle pie with Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sauce. Run a sharp knife under hot water. Cut the pie into slices and serve immediately.
  • Note-to make the pretzel pie crust, you will need about 4 cups whole pretzels. To crush them, you can place the pretzels in a zipped plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Alternately, you can use a food processor. The pie will keep in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. Keep the pie covered with plastic wrap. You can find Private Selection ice cream at Kroger stores.
