Oreo Fudge Ice Cream Cake. You could stop at anyone of those words and be happy. Seriously. Very happy. The best part? Knowing it was so easy to make, and 1/4 of the cost of a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake.
I got this recipe from Kraft foods, and I followed it almost exactly as they said. It is recommended for 12 servings.
-1 package chocolate pudding mix (you can really mix this cake up by changing the flavor of pudding)
-1/2 cup warmed chocolate fudge (another way to change the cake. I made 2 of these, one using dark mint fudge, and the other using Reese's peanut butter fudge)
-1 tub (8 oz) thawed Cool Whip (use fat free, you won't tell the difference)
-10 chopped oreo cookies
-12 unwrapped vanilla ice cream sandwiches (again, you can mix up flavors)
-Mix pudding mix and fudge in a bowl until well blended. Add 1 cup of cool whip, and stir until it is mixed in well. If the mixture is too thick, thin it out with a little bit of milk. Stir in chopped oreo cookies.
-Lay out 4 of the ice cream sandwiches, side by side, to form a rectangle shape. The long sides are what go next to each other, like this: IIII
-Spread half of the fudge mixture on top of the sandwiches. Layer another 4 ice cream sandwiches on top of that. Spread the remaining fudge on top of the ice cream. Top the second fudge layer with the remaining 4 ice cream sandwiches.
-Frost the 'cake' with the remaining cool whip. Drizzle with fudge or additional oreo cookies. Freeze for 4 hours.
