Leftover Ice-Cream Social Cake

This month’s Bakemasters was great: we ate ice-cream, we laughed, we swished. Only one problem: leftover ice-cream and toppings. I know what you’re thinking – how is that a problem?! Ok, you’re right. It’s not really a problem – it’s an opportunity, one that I chose to grab by the horns with this leftover ice-cream cake. 

It’s so easy, but it looks impressive and tastes great. When I was a kid ice-cream cakes were like magic. By some mystical force the wizards at Dairy Queen or Baskin Robbins some how managed to get cookies, cake, and ice-cream all in one perfect slice. If only I knew how easy it was. Check it out:

Here’s what you need:

  • cookies, waffles, anything crispy that crumbles (I used speculoos cookies and sugar waffles)
  • chocolate (we used Côte d’or Dessert 58 – chocolate filled with praline)
  • ice-cream (we had leftover vanilla and caramel. I made the caramel using this recipe)
  • blondie bits
  • caramel sauce
  • candies (we had leftover malted milk balls)

Here’s what you do:

  1. Spray springform pan with cooking spray.
  2. Crush cookies, waffles, whatever you’re using. Melt chocolate and mix with crumbs. Line bottom of pan with crumb mix.
  3. Cover with softened ice-cream (softened, not melted). Add blondie bits (brownie bits or cake pieces work too) then caramel sauce. Finally top with candy and freeze.
  4. Voila! Remove springform ring, cut and serve =)

    Thanks everybody. I’m so pleased with how it turned out. Only one thing I’d change – cut before you freeze. Otherwise you need a pitcher of hot water, a serious knife, and large muscles.
