Fruity Pebble Crunch Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Yesterday after church, my sister hosted the first cookout of the season! After all of the rain we’ve had recently, everyone is so excited to be able to go outside. While I didn’t make it for lunch, I did arrive in time for dessert and I brought a Fruity Pebble Crunch Ice Cream Cake. I decided to try making this ice cream cake after seeing this Biscoff Crunch Ice Cream Cake from A Family Feast. I love that it only required three-ingredients and it is perfect for summer!

Cereal Bark

To make the Fruity Pebble Crunch Ice Cream Cake, start by placing half a gallon of vanilla ice cream in the fridge to soften. Then, put 4 cups of fruit flavored crispy rice cereal into a large bowl. Melt white chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave. Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal and stir until evenly coated.

Pour the coated cereal onto a piece of parchment paper. Allow the white chocolate coating to harden and then break the cereal into bite sized pieces.

Ice Cream Cake

In a large bowl, quickly mix half a gallon of softened vanilla ice cream with 2 cups of the crunchy cereal pieces. Spread into a 9-inch springform pan before the ice cream melts.

Leave the bottom of the springform pan in place and put the entire ice cream cake on a cake platter for serving.

  1. Can we just use the white chocolate and not use the shortening? Or is there a substitution for it?

    • Yes, you can melt the white chocolate without the shortening. It helps to thin the white chocolate, but it should work without it too. Happy Baking! ~Tonia

  2. Can I use butter as a cup for cup substitution for the shortening?
    Thanks

    • Thanks Clovis! Butter contains more water than shortening and can cause the melted chocolate chips to seize. The shortening helps thin the melted chocolate chips.
