Brownie Bottom Ice Cream Pie

Brownie Bottom Ice Cream Pie
You will need:
1 box of Ghiradelli Ultimate Fudge Brownie, or any boxed brownie (+ fudge or chocolate syrup)
Ice cream (any flavor, your choice)
4 oz. Cool Whip
Cocoa Powder, to taste
Cookie topping (Optional)

I made this for my boyfriend's parents' anniversary. I was kind of winging it, but it turned out pretty good. For this recipe I cheated and used a boxed Ghiradelli Ultimate Fudge Brownie mix. I followed the instructions and baked it in a 9' pie pan. After I removed it from the oven, I dug out the center, leaving a brownie crust. Then I used the fudge that came in the box to coat the bottom where I had removed some of the brownie. 

I let this cool, and put it in the freezer to speed up the process. When it was cool enough, I used vanilla and chocolate swirled ice cream to fill in the center. I freezed this for a couple hours. Right before I was going to serve or present this, I used 4 oz. of cool whip, mixed with enough cocoa powder until the cool whip had a light brown tint and a slight cocoa flavor. Then I crumpled the fresh cookies I made using the Chock-Full of Chip Cookie recipe (with peanut butter and chocolate chips).
