I scream, You scream

April 10, 2012

2 slight variations of basically the same Ice Cream Cake.  The first, top cake is featured in my video below, the second is one I made for my baby brother’s birthday in February.  Both are equally delicious.

For the Birthday Ice Cream Cake, I followed the same method but replaced the Thin Mint Crust for a Cinnamon Toast Crunch (cereal) Crust and incorporated a ton of Oreos instead of Thin Mints and stood up cookies on the edges for an Oreo border.

Here’s how to make the easiest Ice Cream Cake ever!

  • 1 tub of softened, Ice Cream/Gelato of your choice
  • 2 package/box of Cookies
  • 1 1/2 c crushed Cookies + 6 tb melted Butter
  • Melted Chocolate or any other Garnish you’d like 
  1. Mix your crushed Cookies and melted Butter and press them onto the bottom of a parchment lined baking pan
  2. In a large bowl, mix together your softened Ice Cream and Cookie Crumbles (I used about 10-12 but how many you want depends on you).  This is also your opportunity to add in any other extracts or flavorings you’d like.
  3. Slide in half your Ice Cream mixture onto your prepared Crust (no need to bake, the freezer will take care of it).
  4. Drizzle on melted Chocolate between your first and second layer of Ice Cream.
  5. Smooth on your second/top layer of Ice Cream and liberally load up with any remaining Cookie crumbles or Chocolate.
  6. Freeze for at least 3 hours and enjoy with whipped Cream and sprinkles 😉

I find myself mindlessly staring into an open Fridge (often)!  On those days that I spy a lonely container of plain Ice Cream, I feel like a boss when I can turn it into something so much more.  It looks pretty impressive for not really being so and the combinations are endless.  I love experimenting with different Cereals, Cookies, Ice Creams, flavorings, etc. 

Frozen Banana + Chocolate?
Nutella with crushed Hazelnuts?
Key Lime with Fresh Strawberries?
Pineapple Sorbet with Coconut Curls?

Once you open yourself up to the possibilities that a Grocery store or even your own Kitchen can bring, it’s crazy fun to see what your mind and hands can come up with. 

Makin’ old things new.
