Coffee Fudge Ice Cream Pie


Calling all coffee lovers to enjoy a sweet, rich, and decadent dessert lekavod Yom Tov! It starts with a coffee cookie base, topped with a store-bought or easy homemade vanilla ice cream, and garnished with a fudge sauce with a creamy velvety texture that’s irresistibly delicious.


Prepare the Cookie Base

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Prepare a Gefen Parchment-lined baking sheet. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of a nine-inch (23-centimeter) springform pan and set in place.
2. In the bowl of a mixer, place sugar, coconut oil or margarine, egg, and extracts and mix until fully combined. Add instant coffee dissolved in pareve milk.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the mixing bowl; mix to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread a thin layer to cover the parchment placed in the springform pan. Spread the remaining dough onto reserved baking sheet (it doesn’t have to fill the full sheet or be neat).
4. Place both pans in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and cool. Break the baking sheet slab into small pieces and mix gently into a container of store-bought (or homemade) vanilla ice cream (you can set aside a handful of crumbs to use as a garnish over the fudge).
5. Spread the ice cream in a nice, thick layer on top of the springform cookie base. Place in freezer until serving.

Prepare the Fudge

1. In a small pot, place the whipped topping, honey, dissolved coffee, brown sugar, cocoa, and salt. Whisk together.
2. Place over medium heat and bring to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Let boil for five minutes, stirring occasionally — mixture will thicken. Remove from heat.
3. Add half the chocolate and stir until melted. Add remaining chocolate and stir again. Add coconut oil and vanilla and whisk together until incorporated. Pour into a small container and freeze until using. (This can be done a few weeks in advance.)
4. Warm fudge before pouring (with a spoon) over ice cream — it’s very rich so a little goes a long way.



For extra fudge flavor, marbleize a small amount of fudge into the ice cream before freezing.



In order to achieve a chewy texture, the cookie dough calls for coconut oil or margarine (as opposed to regular oil), and it gets underbaked.
