Milky Way Ice Cream Pie

I've grown tired of the same 'ol, run-of-the-mill birthday cake. We've had quite a bit of it around here these past few weeks...as well as wedding cake coming out of our ears! So for my husbands birthday over the weekend I wanted to try something new. He loves chocolate ice cream and Milky Way's are his candy bar of choice. So I thought this was a good "cake compromise". (PS...no I didn't throw him a Spongebob Squarepants party... We promised our little guy a party when he was potty trained, and he collected...with Spongebob theme, so I combined the two "parties". Little guy's enamored by a show he's never even watched! The lure of the "forbidden fruit" I guess!!)
Milky Way Ice Cream Pie:
1 chocolate graham cracker pie crust (or Oreo one)
1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream, softened about 25sec in microwave
3 Milky way bars, chopped (I freeze them for about 15-20mins for easier chopping)
hot fudge sauce
caramel sauce

Layer 1/2 of ice cream in bottom of pie crust and top with caramel and hot fudge sauce (amount to your liking), then half of chopped candy.
Top with remaining ice cream, sauces (amount to your liking), and rest of chopped candy bars.
Freeze until set.

You can customize your pies to the ingredients of your choice...use Snickers, Butterfingers, Reeses PB cups, vanilla ice cream, etc.

A delicious, cool treat to change things up a bit!
