I always have to laugh when I make this ice cream cake. Why? Everyone swears this they is the best ice cream cake ever…how did I have time to make my own ice cream…etc,etc. So, what is so funny, is none of that is true. It is all made from store bought items. I even use the cheapest ice cream I can buy, the big bucket kind! So, you have got to try this for your next party. I promise, everyone will rave!
This particular cake was for my youngest. He loves oreos, so we used them in the crust and throughout the cake as well.
You can use nilla wafers if you prefer, or any other cookie you would prefer. Throw them in the food processor and pulse until they are completely ground.
My Cuisinart is my favorite, of course.
This is what it should look like. Then add in your melted butter. Mix again.
Press into a spring form pan.
Set crust aside and start on the cake part. I use my Bosch, of course, it is the only machine I have ever owned that could handle this. They are also on sale this month, if you have been considering buying one, now is a really great time!! Sale link is here.
I bought this ice cream at walmart I believe. I usually like to just get vanilla, then you can add in any other things you would like. The vanilla is a great base.
Load up your mixer. Unless your mixer can’t handle it, then just take it easy and do small batches.
Here is a short video showing the mixing.
Spread in the pan. A short single layer first.
Don’t be too particular about it, just make sure it is kind of flat.
Again, I am using Store brand fudge sauce. Drizzle on the layer.
We then sprinkled with the crushed remaining oreos. You can add any other add ins you want- we have used whopper, m&ms, sour patch kids, etc etc. You decide!
Freeze for several hours, or even overnight. The next day, run the edges with warm water. This shouldn’t take long, just enough time to loosen the cake pan.
Remove and feel proud. Doesn’t it look great?!
Make sure and keep it cold until the party. Then slice.
Now, sit back and enjoy. Bask in the compliments, you deserve it!
