Ice Cream Cake

Ice Cream Cake: easy cake made from ice cream sandwiches, hot fudge and whipped cream!

It’s birthday season around here!  What a better way to ring in the Spring than with an Ice Cream Cake?!?!

I used to pay money at various local ice cream parlors to get an ice cream cake. Now? I can whip one together in no time at all. And, depending on the birthday child’s favorite ice cream, you can change up the flavor no problem. For this cake I used Cookie’s and Cream ice cream, but in the past have made it with chocolate, mint chocolate chip, and strawberry! Possibilities are endless!

Ice Cream Cake: easy cake made from ice cream sandwiches, hot fudge and whipped cream!

Ice Cream Cake

Prep Time: 3 hours

Yield: serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 8 regular sized ice cream sandwiches
  • 1.5 qt cookies and cream ice cream (or your favorite variety), softened
  • 1/2 cup hot fudge sauce
  • 8oz Cool Whip

Instructions

  1. In a standard sized loaf pan, line it with plastic wrap. Lay half of your ice cream sandwiches on the bottom of the loaf pan (mine took about 3 1/2, cut to fit). Spread softened ice cream over sandwiches. Pour cooled hot fudge sauce over ice cream, spreading evenly. Top with remaining ice cream sandwiches, cut to fit. Cover with more plastic wrap and return to freezer for 3 hours, or overnight.
  2. When ready to serve, Invert loaf pan on rectangular plate. Remove plastic wrap. Using a large spoon, spread Cool Whip over cake. Serve immediately. To store leftovers, place remaining cake in a large freezersafe tupperware bowl. Cover and store. ENJOY!

I use ice cream sandwiches to make my ice cream cakes too. Although instead of adding more ice cream, I do an oreo fudge layer in between the sandwiches. So good….and now I want one!

I didn’t know it was so easy to make an ice cream cake right in your own kitchen. Places like Baskin Robbins charge you like $25 for a tiny little one but now I can make it for so much cheaper, and better :)

This looks fantastic! I have made several using oreos as a “crust” the only tip I have is that it seems to work better with a less expensive ie. store brand ice cream, it seems to spread better. Can’t wait to try this recipe, Thank You!

Goes perfect with this minus weather here the last 3 days.
Remember as a kid our family all went to ice cream shop and got banana splits and it was in the minus teens.LOL That was mid-late 1970′s.
