Happy PI DAY! Obviously we party over the little things here (like dates that convert to food) so we’re celebrating in the best way we know how today – with PIE at HQ. While it doesn’t totally feel like “ice box” pie weather around the country with all this snow, we round tabled about our favorite pies and came up with this fun recipe just in time for St. Patty’s Day this weekend! Drumroll please...meet our Lucky Ice Box Party Pie! Here’s whatcha need to make one yourself or for a friend
- 4 cups Lucky Charms Cereal
- 8 tbsp butter, melted
- 2½ cups Lucky Charms marshmallows, divided
- 1½ cups marshmallow fluff
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 2 cups heavy cream
- ½ cup powdered sugar
Add 4 cups cereal to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until your mixture is crumbs. Slowly pour butter in through the feed tube. Pulsate until combined and crumbs are soft
Pour crumbs into a 9” pie dish and press mixture on the bottom and around the sides to form pie crust. Place in the freezer while you prepare the filling.
In a tall bowl whip heavy cream with an electric mixer until you can start to see a defined trail through the cream. Slowly add in powdered sugar. Whip until stiff peaks form. (In other words when you turn off the blender and lift the beaters out of the cream, the cream stand up on the end of the beater). Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
To prepare the filling: Combine cream cheese and marshmallow fluff in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Fold in ½ of the whipped cream and ½ cup Lucky Charms marshmallows until completely incorporated. Pour into chilled pie crust. Smooth with a spatula. Pour remaining whipped cream over the top. Sprinkle remaining marshmallows around the edge of the pie (we went heavy with this!). Freeze overnight if desired, refrigerate until ready to serve or serve immediately!
Serve with your favorite beverage in a Disco Drink to really start the party!
Hope you guys like this recipe as much as we do and it brings you a touch of good luck.
