    This is such a good recipe! I have made it several times now (using different kinds of ice cream). Everyone remembers this one!

    I live in Pennsylvania and grew up loving Breyer's coffee ice cream, even tho I didn't like coffee at the time. I plan on trying this soon.

    Love this pie recipe. For a change of pace I use strawberry icecream, and with the chocolate its grrrrreat! Also, I added fresh berries to "real" whipped cream. The whipped topping seemed a bit heavy ofr a "light" pie. I make this one over and over, all with different flkavors...... try it - you will love it. I can't find "starbucks ice cream" either, I use Blue Bunny. LeMars Iowa loves me as Blue Bunny is the BEST!

    You can make home made whipped cream to top this pie. There is no need to freeze the whipped cream before topping the pie. In the States the whipped topping that is used is purchased from the freezer section of the grocery store.

    I love coffee ice cream and would make it as is for the adults.Since the pie is so easy I would probably make a second pie for the non coffee loving adults and the children.Carole Resnick
