German Chocolate Ice Cream Pie Recipe

This ice cream pie is topped with a fluffy mountain of caramel whipped cream, toasted coconut, and pecans. Häagen-Dazs makes a German chocolate cake ice cream flavor, which is an appropriate and delicious alternative to the chocolate ice cream.

  • ¾ cup (6 ounces) pecan pieces
  • ¾ cup sweetened flaked coconut

CRUST Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups (about 6 ounces) chocolate cookie crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 pints premium or 1½ quarts nonpremium chocolate or German chocolate cake ice cream


  • ½ cup caramel sauce, at room temperature
  • 1 cup heavy (whipping) cream

Instructions / How to Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the nuts on a baking sheet that has sides
    and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted.
  2. Cool and coarsely chop. Toast the coconut, stirring it several times until it is evenly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Leave the oven on.


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the cookie crumbs,
    butter, and sugar until well combined. Press evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie pan.
  2. Bake until the crust is lightly toasted around the edges and feels dry to the touch, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool completely.
  3. Soften the ice cream (see softening tips on intro card). Carefully spread the ice cream into the crust, smoothing the top.
  4. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ice cream and freeze until firm, at least 8 hours or up to 2 days.


  1. Spoon the caramel sauce into a large bowl. In another bowl, with a mixer on high speed, whip the cream until it holds medium peaks. Stir about one-third of the whipped cream into the caramel sauce. With a flexible spatula, gently fold in the remaining whipped cream.
  2. Remove the pie from the freezer and take off plastic wrap. Whisk the cream gently to thicken it to a spreadable consistency, if necessary, and spread it over the ice cream, mounding the cream slightly in the center.
  3. Sprinkle with the coconut and pecans. Freeze the pie until the whipped cream is firm, about 30 minutes or up to 1 day. To serve, remove the pie from the freezer and let stand at room temperature 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. To slice the pie neatly, dip the blade of a large, sharp knife in hot water and wipe it dry before cutting each slice.
