Drumstick Pie and Dorm Survival Baskets

It's National Ice Cream Pie Day today, which means one thing...trouble!  I just learned that one of my childhood favorites has been taken to a whole new level!  Drumstick Pie!

Now before I get to the pie, just a side our girls' friends have been going off to college, we have been making a few of their close classmates some fun dorm room survival gift baskets to send them off to school with.  It's been great trying to find goodies in their college school spirit colors to coordinate everything in.

University of Colorado Boulder - Black and Gold

One down and wrapped for more to go!

CU we come!

Now back to this insane pie!  Really, a Drumstick Pie??  It has all the ingredients of a Drumstick Ice Cream Cone, all wrapped up in a frozen pie embellished with mimi drumsticks of course.

6 sugar cones
6 graham crackers
6 Tbl melted butter
1 Tbl sugar
pinch salt
1 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened slightly
5 mini Drumsticks
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup chocolate chips
2 Tbl butter
1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts

Make ganache.  Place chocolate chips in a large glass bowl.  In a small saucepan, heat heavy cream until bubbles begin to form around edges.  Pour hot heavy cream over chocolate chips and add butter.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  Whisk until smooth.  Let cool while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

In a food processor, pulse sugar cones and graham crackers until very fine crumbs.  Transfer to a large bowl and stir in butter, sugar and salt.  Grease a pie dish with cooking spray, then press crust into the dish.

Spread ice cream in a thick even layer.  Top with inverted mini Drumsticks, pressing the ice cream topping into vanilla ice cream.  Freeze for 30 minutes.

Pour ganache over ice cream around the inverted Drumsticks then sprinkle chopped peanuts on top.  Freeze until solid, about 4 hours.
