- 2 1/2 gallon tubs of ice cream-I used chocolate for the bottom and mint chocolate chip for the top
- 1 package of Chocolate cookies-I used Grasshoppers to enhance the minty flavor of the cake
- 1 Jar of Hot Fudge-you can use store bought hot fudge or you can use this amazing recipe here. Just make sure to make it ahead of time.
You’ll also need foil and 2 round cake pans.
Directions for Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake
First thing, pull your ice cream out of the freezer and set it out to thaw a little while you make the rest of this cake.
Take your cookies and toss them in a bag and beat them with a rolling pin till they are crushed.
Line your 2 round cake pans with foil:
And poor the cookies into the bottom-half in each.
Then poor the warmed up hot fudge on top:
And gently spread it around:
Now scoop your ice cream on top. Use one tub per cake pan-use the whole thing and spread it around until it is smooth:
Now pop your foil out and the whole cake should come with it:
Stack one on top of the other and then top it with more hot fudge, mini chocolate chips, or cookie crumbs.
I was going to show you a lovely picture of a slice of this cake but when I went to get it I found large bites taken out of it and little finger prints on the freezer door….
I guess at least you know that it is taste tested and approved by my kiddos.
