Coffee Ice Cream Hot Fudge Sundae Pie with a Macaroon Crust.
I’ve decided that every day should have a cherry on top.
Sometimes I wonder if I will ever tire of rainbow sprinkles. Seriously, the giddiness they cause in me is embarrassingly real. Obviously! Is it horrifying to love sprinkles when you’re 63 years old? I’ll probably be there.
Because right now? This pie makes me want to blast my purple pocket rocker and make friendship bracelets out of my trust caboodle. But let’s be real: I consume more sprinkles now at 32 than I did at 12.
That ice cream swirl up there is like a gigantic pie-like version of a chocolate vanilla swirl. Except it’s coffee vanilla swirl. I’d like to bury my head in there and come out in about three weeks. YES.
I made this pie after having a serious craving for my mom’s old-school oreo cookie dessert. Have you had this? It’s in my archives but I’m a bit too horrified to link it. Layers of oreo crust, ice cream, a homemade fudge and whipped cream. And it’s supposed to be made with coffee ice cream but since we kids looooathed coffee ice cream, she would use vanilla.
And she would make it when her card club was coming over on Friday nights (no, they never played cards, but they went out to dinner and then had dessert at someone’s house) and it was pure TORTURE knowing that it was in the freezer and we couldn’t eat any until the next day. IF there happened to be leftovers. WAH.
Plus, I also used to be in bed and hear them come back from dinner late (probably only like 10:30ish?) and be jealous and want to go down and have fun. And then in the morning when I’d wake up and come downstairs, the sink would be full of her pretty pink crystal plates and leftover glasses of Bailey’s.
Um, I want my sink to be filled with ice cream covered pink crystal plates and leftover Bailey’s glasses. Why isn’t this my life right now?! Friends? Hello?
This is sort of like that, but not really. I mixed the coffee and vanilla ice cream for a latte-y flavor. Topped with whipped cream and hot fudge and sprinkles and cherries (duh) – you can totally add coconut or even nuts if you’re into freaky stuff like that. Personally, I prefer nuts to stay the heck out of my desserts.
They do NOT belong in brownies.
They rarely belong in cookies, but I can make a sliiiight exception at times.
They never ever ever belong in fudge.
They really don’t even belong in ice cream.
These are the Jessica rules.
Aside from the ice cream sundae topping, the crust is definitely where it’s at.
The chewiest coconut macaroon crust. It’s chewy and gooey and a little bit crunchy. Toasted!
How did I not just eat the entire crust before filling it with ice cream? One will never know.
That bite though.
Doesn’t it look like the pie is talking? It’s begging you to make it. Begging me to eat it. Okay, brb, must go visit the freezer.
Coffee Ice Cream Hot Fudge Sundae Pie with a Macaroon Crust
- 3 1/4 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 large egg whites
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 pint coffee ice cream
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream
- 3 cups cold heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- hot fudge of chocolate syrup
- rainbow sprinkles
- cherries for topping
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the coconut, sugar, egg whites, salt and coconut oil, mixing with a large spatula until all of the coconut is moistened. Press the coconut into a 9-inch springform pan evenly, pressing it up the sides as well. Place the pan on a baking sheet and stick it in the oven. Bake it for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and slightly crispy. Let cool completely.
- Let the ice cream soften slightly so it’s easily spreadable. Spread the pint of coffee ice cream down as the first layer. Spread the vanilla ice cream evenly on top. Freeze until the ice cream is totally frozen, about 4 to 6 hours or overnight. Right before serving, place the heavy cream in the bowl of your electric mixer. Beat on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form and you have whipped cream – them whip in the powdered sugar for a few seconds until it’s dispersed.
- Cover the top of the ice cream with the whipped cream. Drizzle on some hot fudge and sprinkles.To slice, use a large knife dipped in warm water. Serve immediately with extra chocolate and sprinkles and cherries.

I am dying inside with how delicious this looks. Yesterday was my dad’s birthday and I made him a piddly little birthday cake. I wish I had made him something like this! He would have loved it.

Oh wow! What a pie! I love the macaroon crust, that sounds like a terrific idea :) Wish I had a slice…
Macaroon crust?!? Yes please!! Love this idea!
So so SO much love for this!!
That crust is calling my name!! Well, this whole thing is. What a keeper!
I am SO thrilled to have found someone who shares my dislike of nuts in desserts! What is it with people thinking nuts should be there? If you want crunch, get it from something else! Like bruleed sugar or a shortbread crust or whatever-is-crunchy-but-not-nuts. Just say no to nuts!
On a related to your post note, I’ve got so many things in mind to use that amazing cocunut macaroon crust for! I could get on board with this for lunch-dessert, dinner-dessert, and heck, breakfast dessert if that’s thing.
Wow. That is the dessert to trump all desserts. Ice cream, pie, hot fudge sundae, and macaroon all wrapped into one? Sounds amazing!
That has to be the most adorable pie ever!! So into that macaroon crust, I’d eat that alone before I got to filling the actual pie!
So who makes the best colorful sprinkles?
Dontcha wish you knew how to make them?
Think of the flavors we could make!!!!!
Oh My Gosssssh, Jessica! This pie is gorgeous. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Those sprinkles! And your photos are incredible. <3
I can get on board with your rules about nuts. Please don’t out then in my baked goods. Just ruins a brownie!
This looks FANTASTIC.
This looks like awesomeness from every dessert rolled into one! You can’t go wrong with coconut macaroon crust!
Preach it. Nuts and brownies are so not a thing. I’m also pretty sure I should be eating this, like right now. It’s swoon worthy.

There is nothing wrong with loving sprinkles when you’re an adult! Being an adult kinda sucks when you have bills to pay. Sprinkles make it more fun being an adult. This sundae pie looks so irresistible, it kills me.
Gorge-ous! Love the whole thing, even if it is a little fancy-pants sounding, it looks totally girl-next-door. I’m with you on the nuts. Stay far FAR away from my brownies, please! Sharing this baby all over! Thanks for the recipe, Jessica.

OMG I want this now. To look at because its so pretty, and to smash in my face. Also, please please please tell me where you get those awesome neon rainbow sprinkles because I can’t find ANY near me. I assume Amazon, like all the things… but i need them to make life better.
I’m seriously drooling at 10:30pm (it is way past my bedtime…) even with the AC on. This looks divine. Can I please have a slice? Do you deliver?
What would you recommend as a substitute for the coconut in the crust for someone who highly dislikes coconut?
i’d probably do an oreo crust or a graham cracker crust!
