Quick and Easy Ice Cream Cake
Several weeks ago, I found and pinned a few recipes for homemade ice cream cake. I had thought I would make one for Anthony for his birthday next month, but he decided he would rather have cupcakes so I made it for Father's Day instead. This ice cream cake was so easy to make, and did not take long at all. It also tasted really good and cost under $10.
I box of brownie mix of your choice (plus what that recipe calls for)
1 package oreo cookies (does not have to be name brand)
1 container cool whip
1 box of ice cream sandwiches
First, make your brownie mix according to the directions on the box and pour it into a greased 13x9 pan. Bake according to directions. Allow to cool slightly and then press brownies down to form a crust. Let brownies finish cooling completely.
After brownies are cooled, spread half the container of cool whip over top. Drizzle a good amount of chocolate syrup over that. Crush around 20 oreo cookies in a plastic bag and sprinkle over top of syrup, reserving a small amount for sprinkling over the top of the cake. Now cut your ice cream sandwiches in half and put them over top of the cookies. I had one and a half sandwiches left over but children were very willing to eat those ;) Spread the rest of your cool whip over top. I wrote Happy Father's Day using the chocolate syrup (it came out a bit messy) and sprinkle your remaining cookies. Cover and freeze until firm.
Before serving, I would allow the cake to sit out for 15-20 min so it will be easier to cut and serve. My family loved this cake! I will be making it again soon.
