Mint-Chocolate Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
Frosty and impressive, this versatile ice cream cake is pretty enough for company, simple enough for a weeknight treat. Kathy Morrow in Hubbard, Ohio suggests you try food coloring to tint the whipped topping or use different flavors of ice cream, extracts and cookie or candy crumbs to suit different holidays or occasions!

MY REVIEW

Couldn't find Suzy Q's. Used Voortman cookies and cream wafer cookies instead. One 12.3 ounce did the trick. Had 3 layers of cookies and ended with ice cream. Also, used Bryer's brand mint chocolate chip ice cream, and pretty much used it all. My husband suggested slicing with an electric knife, so will try that next time.

Hostess is no longer making Suzy Q's but you can substitute Little Debbie Devil Dogs. This recipe reminded me of Bob's Big Boy Ice Cream Cake. I made some changes: used vanilla ice cream (twice what the recipe called for), and instead of frosting it with whip cream topped individual servings with hot fudge and whip cream on top (eliminating the Oreo topping). This was wonderful!

The first time I had this, my mom made it and everyone loved it, I decided to treat my boyfriend to one only where I live we have very limited stores and couldn't find the suzy q's but was able to find the Little Debbie's Devil Dogs, so I made it with them. My boyfriend loved it and it made a good substitution!! Will definately make again!!
