clear round casserole dish, 2.5L
large mixing bowl
- ice cream - 1L, vanilla flavored, softened

- Spoon or pour the chocolate mixture into the base of a clear casserole dish until it is about 3cm thick. Add a similar sized layer of vanilla mixture. Continue until all mixture is layered in the bowl. Transfer to the freezer for 10 minutes.
- Remove the pie from the freezer and cover the top of the ice cream pie with the remaining whole Maltesers (approx. 300g) until the whole surface is covered. Return to the freezer for 3-4 hours or overnight.
- Cut pieces or scoop straight out of the dish to serve.
