For Father's Day I wanted to make a really special dessert for my hubby. I had a half gallon of cookie dough ice cream in the freezer and decided to turn it into this delectable confection.
Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake
1 box devils food cake, prepared
1 container (half gallon) cookie dough ice cream
1 jar (11-12 oz.) hot fudge
3/4 c. (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. flour
1 t. vanilla
1-2 T. mini chocolate chips
mini chocolate chip cookies (I used mini Chips Ahoy)
For bottom layer, crumble cake and mash it up with a spoon.
Prepare a 9" springform pan by placing parchment paper (or wax paper) around the edges.
Press crumbled cake into the bottom. Freeze for 1-2 hours.
Let ice cream soften at room temerature until spreadable. Spread ice cream over cake. Return to freezer for 1-2 hours.
Spred hot fudge over ice cream. Freeze for a couple more hours.
In a mixing bowl combine butter, sugars, flour and vanilla with an electric mixer until well combined slightly fluffy. Spread frosting over fudge. Top with mini chocolate chips.
Place mini cookies around the edges of the frosting. Freeze again for 1-2 hours.
Let soften at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.
I'll tell you, this is one rich dessert! But it is totally worth it. Enjoy!
