Ice Cream Cake with Brownie Crust

This is better than DQ ice cream cakes by a LOOOOONG ways.  Give this a go:

  • [cref  #802 Brownie Recipe]
  • 2 liters of ice cream
  • bucket of cool whip, defrosted
  • birthday candles
  1. Bake brownies in 9×13 pan.  (I had to use several pans, and then layered the cake in a truffle serving dish.)
  2. While brownies are cooling, remove ice cream from freezer to soften on counter.
  3. Layer: brownie bottom, spoon ice cream evenly over the brownie, then spread cool whip over top.
  4. Decorate with candles.  And provide children to sing, “Happy Birthday”.

Hint:  I’ve colored cool whip with food coloring before – and it works beautifully!

Hint #2: Make plans for the leftovers before they end up on your hips.  Ahem.

<– THAT is why I don’t post pictures very often.  You can’t even tell its a cake!  lol

  2. see but my faaaavorite part of the DQ cake was that layer of gooey hot fudge. can’t we gluten-freeify that part of it to??

    Wonderful job though – even if you made it sans fudge
