Ice Cream Cookie Cake
"This is better than any Dairy Queen frozen cake, experiment using different flavors of ice cream and toppings, the possibilities are endless, small Oreo cookies and Oreo ice cream works well, homemade soft cookies will not work for the crust, the cookies must be hard. Prep time includes 5 hour freezing time, if you planning to serve this in the evening make sure to prepare it in the morning there is some freezer time involved. This is SO good!"
- 1 (18 ounce) packages small chocolate chip cookies, divided ( must be store-bought not soft cookies)
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 cups Hershey's hot fudge topping, divided (or use favorite brand)
- 2 quarts ice cream, divided (slightly softened but not melted, use any flavor desired)
- Sweetened whipped cream (use any amount desired to garnish)
- Maraschino cherries ( use any amount to garnish)
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Prepare a 9-inch springform pan. Finely crush only HALF of the small cookies to make the crumbs. Place in a bowl with melted butter or margarine and 2 tablespoons sugar; mix to combine. Press into the bottom of the springform pan.
Stand the remaining cookies around the edge of the pan. Spread 1 cup hot fudge sauce over the crust.
Freeze for about 30-40 minutes.
Using an ice cream scooper scoop the remaining quart of ice cream into balls and arrange over the spreaded ice cream. Freeze for about 4 hours or until completely firm.
To serve, garnish with remainder of fudge topping, whipped cream and cherries.
