  • 140 g pretzel twists
  • 115 g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 250 g vanilla ice cream
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter

Topping (optional):

  • 120 g whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place pretzels in a ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin by rolling over them until they become fine crumbs. 
  • Transfer pretzel crumbs into a bowl and stir in melted butter and brown sugar until combined.
  • Pour pretzel crumbs into a tart pan and firmly press into the pan until the bottom and sides of the pan are covered in a thick layer.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on a wire rack before filling with ice cream.
  • In a medium bowl, let ice cream sit out at room temperature while the crust is baking. Stir with a spoon until ice cream is softened and creamy but not melted and liquidy. It should resemble soft serve ice cream.
  • Add peanut butter and stir until incorporated.
  • Scoop ice cream into pretzel crust. Spread and smooth the top with a spatula.
  • Whisk whipping cream and sugar together until cream thickens into firm peaks. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a closed star tip and pipe rosettes on the surface of the ice cream.
  • Freeze ice cream pie for at least 4 hours or overnight before cutting and serving.
