Drumstick Cones are such an iconic summer treat.  Who wouldn’t love to have one on a hot summer day?  When I am brainstorming recipes, one of the things I really like to do is reinvent something that I already love.  My very favorite Drumstick has a caramel center and so I decided to try and make a Drumstick ice cream pie with all of those flavors.  It was a total SUCCESS!  Keep scrolling to see how you can make this no bake dessert for your family and friends.

When I was a kid, my sisters and I would ride our bikes to The Westside Store {a little country store about a quarter mile from our house} almost every day to buy a treat and of course…to see Pam {Hi, Pam}. 

Ice cream was always one of my top choices.  My biggest dilemma was deciding between a Drumstick and a Creamsicle {#gradeschoolproblems}. 

I would stand in front of the chest freezer for what seemed like 30 minutes and almost always walked away with the Drumstick because…chocolate! 

I love the vanilla ice cream, sugar cone and peanuts but the excess chocolate that pools up at the bottom of the sugar cone was the bite that always sealed the deal for me.

How to make a Sugar Cone Pie Crust for a Drumstick Pie

A Drumstick Pie wouldn’t be complete without a sugar cone crust.  In my opinion, it is a requirement.

Begin by breaking them up and adding them to the bowl of a food processor.  If you don’t have a food processor than just add them all to a large Ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush.

Pulse the cones until you have coarse crumbs.  The coarser the crumbs the better the crust will stay together, so be sure to get the crumbs fairly fine.

Add the melted butter and pulse until mixed well.  For a sweeter crust you could add a tablespoon of brown sugar.

How to Assemble a Super Easy and No Bake Drumstick Pie

Remove crust from freezer and add a layer of Smucker’s Magic Shell Chocolate.  Return to the freezer for 10 minutes.  Remove vanilla ice cream at this time to be sure that it is soft enough to work with in the next step.

Cover the caramel layer with the remaining vanilla ice cream and freeze for at least 30 minutes.  The ice cream needs to set up completely for the last step.

Finally, add the Smucker’s Magic Shell Chocolate to the vanilla ice cream and spread out {be sure to work quickly because the chocolate will set up fast}.  Sprinkle with chopped peanuts while chocolate is still wet. 

Return to freezer and freeze for at least an hour or until the ice cream has is completely set.
