Drumstick Ice Cream Pie is a simple, no bake dessert for those who love sweets but are less than stellar bakers like me.
I am always trying to come up with these easy desserts, but typically my mind dreams up more recipes that involve bacon, chicken wings, and cheesy dips.
I was at the small store by my house last week looking for frozen breakfast sandwiches for my husband.
Next to them were those frozen ice cream Drumstick treats.
I instantly was brought back to my childhood thinking of that vanilla ice cream filled sugar cone with the magic shell topping and peanuts.
As I was in the checkout I was like…. Ohhhh…. I could turn these same Drumstick ingredients into a pie!
Luckily I said it in my head and not out loud in the store 😉
How to Make Drumstick Ice Cream Pie
Plan ahead with this one because we do need time for the crust to freeze.
You’ll need a box of 12 sugar cones, sugar, and 6 tablespoons butter for the crust.
Put the sugar cones in a food processor or blender.
I put a few at a time in and pulsed to make room for the rest of them.
Melt the butter and pour that in and add 2 tablespoons sugar.
Pulse a few more times and you have yourself a sugar cone pie crust!
Put the crust into a pie pan and use a spoon or the bottom of a cup to form it up the sides of the pan and flatten the bottom.
Put the crust in the freezer for about 3 hours.
The same filling as in a Drumstick ice cream treat will go into the pie crust.
Set the ice cream out for about 45 minutes so it gets soft.
And if your magic shell chocolate won’t shake or seems too thick, set it in a cup with hot water for a few minutes so it has that thin consistency.
I bought a 1.5 quart container of vanilla ice cream, but really only about a quart fit in the pie.
Mix it together with a spoon in the container and add to the crust.
Use a spoon to flatten the top a bit.
Drizzle the magic shell over the ice cream and add some chopped peanuts before the chocolate hardens.
Put Drumstick Ice Cream Pie back in the freezer for a few more hours.
I would recommend setting it out of the freezer about 15 minutes before slicing it.
Who knew you could turn your favorite (well…my favorite) ice cream treat into a gorgeous pie?!
It was so good and has me thinking up even more ice cream pie ideas!

Drumstick Ice Cream Pie is everything yummy about a Drumstick Ice Cream Cone but served as an easy to make ice cream pie
- 12 sugar cones
- 2 Tbsps sugar
- 6 Tbsps melted butter

- 7 oz bottle chocolate magic shell
- 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
Put the sugar cones in a food processor or blender. Pulse a few times. Add the sugar and melted butter and pulse a few more times.

Let the vanilla ice cream come to room temp (I set mine out for 45 minutes) and put in the pie crust. Use a spoon to flatten the top.
Drizzle the magic shell over top and sprinkle the chopped peanuts over top.
Note: If magic shell won't shake or seems thick, place in a cup with hot water for a few minutes so it drizzles nice and thin.
Place back in the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving.
Note: Set it out 15 minutes before slicing.
