Peppermint Patty Ice Cream Cake

This fancy-looking cake can be prepared in a flash on a rainy day and stored in the freezer for later use," remarks Nancy Horsburgh of Everett, Ontario. "It's light, minty and a real hit with guests who think you're showing off!"

    My family loves this done at Christmas time but I use the peppermint candy ice cream. when it's ready for the freezer, I put a carton of cool whip over the entire cake. Absolutely to die for!

    I used peppermint candy ice cream instead of vanilla. Left out the pecans because of people with allergies to nuts. When it was put together I froze it and just before serving I put a coat of cool whip over the cake and added some mint hershey kisses on top. It was a huge hit.
