Mint-Chocolate Ice Cream Cake Recipe

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!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + freezing YIELD:10 servings


  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) individual cream-filled chocolate cakes
  • 3 cups mint chocolate chip ice cream, softened
  • 12 Oreo cookies, crushed, divided
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract, optional


  • 1. Line a 9x5-in. loaf pan with plastic wrap. Place six chocolate cakes in pan, completely covering the bottom. Spread ice cream over cakes; sprinkle with half of the cookie crumbs. Press remaining cakes on top. Cover and freeze for at least 3 hours.
  • 2. Just before serving, remove from the freezer and invert onto a serving plate. Remove pan and plastic wrap.
  • 3. Combine whipped topping and extract if desired; frost top and sides of cake. Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs. Yield: 10 servings.

"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!!"

"You find Suzy Q's in New England. I have never found them anywhere else. I have them once a year when we go for a visit."

"I went to two stores before I found Suzy Q's. (All the ingredients came to just over $10.) My whole family watched as I assembled this dessert. Anticipation was running high! The three hour wait while it froze was very long! Sorry to say we were all disappointed with this dessert. The cream filling in the Suzy Q's became rubbery when frozen. We would have liked more ice cream. I must say it was very pretty when sliced and served. I'm going to try my own remake using layers of brownies and more ice cream."

"Thanks J! Here in Canada none of these terms were familiar. Don't have them here. Thinking that perhaps I could substitute with whoopee pies."
