How To Make An Ice Cream Cake

When I first wanted to make an ice cream cake I had the hardest time finding a recipe for it. This one will be similar to Dairy Queens ice cream cake but you can always use whatever flavor combinations you would. Or try out different things other then cookies like M and Ms, nuts, chocolate flakes, caramel any thing you can think of.

  • To start line the bottom of a springform  pan with foil in case the ice cream starts to leak. You don't want that mess on your counter or in your freezer.
  • My ice cream wasn't too hard so I was able to scoop some in and spread it right away. (If needed let it sit out for about 10 min to soften a little) I put about a half inch of vanilla in first. Then put into the freezer until firm.
  • When the ice cream is almost firm place about 20 cookies in a bowl and chop them, I used a wooden spatula. I like them to be bigger chunks but however you like them is good. If you want you could use a food processor  to chop them. Add enough fudge to coat them.
  • Spread cookie mixture into springform pan, press down lightly on the cookies.
  • Spread remaining fudge onto of cookies. Place back into the freezer to get firm.
  • Spread about a half inch of chocolate ice cream into the springform pan and place back into the freezer.
  • Spread vanilla ice cream into pan to fill to the top and freeze overnight.
  • Get a towel wet with hot water and rub on the outside of the springform pan. (this will help loosen the ice cream from the collar) Remove collar from pan. Warm up the bottom the same way as the sides and place cake on a plate or board.
  • Frost cake with whipped topping and decorate however you would like.
