Cookie Ice Cream Cake

I discovered this recipe online and changed it a little to suit my family's tastes. It always gets lots of compliments because people love the hot fudge topping and unique cookie crust. My husband says it's the best ice cream cake he's ever had.

    We are a gluten free household and this recipe translated beautifully for my daughter's birthday. We used a gluten free double chocolate cookie and made sure the hot fudge and ice creams were gluten free.It was very easy to make, absolutely delicious, and didn't last beyond the day it was served! My daughter loved it so much she immediately requested for her next birthday which is coming up soon. I've also made this around Christmas as a festive alternative to regular GF cakes which rarely turn out very good.Thank you for such a nice recipe. Highly recommended!

    If I was going to make this again I think I would pick more exciting ice cream flavors... like coffee or peanut butter or chocolate chip cookie dough, but it was still very easy to make and impressive looking
