I had so much fun making this Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Pie with an EGGO® CHOCO-TOAST™ CHOCOLATEY CHIP crust as part of this shop which has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #LeggoMyEggo #cbias #CollectiveBias
If you are looking for a fun twist to a traditional ice cream pie, make your crust using EGGO® CHOCO-TOAST™ CHOCOLATEY CHIP. The mini chocolate chip speckled French toast pieces make such a fun looking and amazing tasting crust for this easy-to-make dessert. If you haven’t tried these frozen breakfast items be sure to check them out at Walmart.
Each package contains 20 bread sized pieces that can be toasted then divided into 4 mini toasts. They have a crispy exterior and soft fluffy interior much like a waffle and when topped with raspberry chocolate chunk ice cream make a decadent dessert.

When I was given the opportunity to create a handcrafted/artisanal dessert using these frozen toasts I had so many fun ideas but finally decided to make this ice cream pie.
My family loves ice cream even when it’s bone chilling cold outside. To them there is never a bad time to eat a frozen dessert.
My mom especially likes making ice cream pies and cakes because they are so quick and easy. She is all about simple recipes and I can’t wait to share this one with her. I know she’ll love it. She’ll also be happy to know that Eggo Waffles now have colors and flavors from natural sources. Kellogg’s® Eggo® Chocolatey Chip Waffles would make a fun crust for this pie too or you can use them to make ice cream sandwiches or sundaes.
For my pie I chose to use my favorite raspberry chocolate chunk ice cream, but any ice cream will work. The pie has a layer of homemade chocolate sauce over the crust, which helps bind the pie together, along with a drizzle on top.
Watch this video to see how easy this is to make.
- I made my pie in an 8 inch springform pan because I wanted to be able to remove the entire pie so you could see the fun little toasts on the edge. I suppose you could also call this an ice cream cake but with a crust I felt it was more of a pie. You can definitely make this in a pie pan instead. If you use a 9 inch pie plate you may need a few more of the EGGO CHOCO-TOASTS to go around the edge and to cover the bottom.
- You want the ice cream soft enough to spread over the crust. The amount of time needed to soften the ice cream will depend on the brand of ice cream you use. Some melt more slowly than others. My carton of ice cream took about 20 minutes to soften.
- I toasted the EGGO CHOCO-TOASTS before creating my pie which gave them that nice toasty flavor and helped them thaw more quickly once refrozen in the pie. They are soft enough to cut through using a fork when eating the pie.
