Last weekend, we went to a malt shop for lunch. We had cheeseburgers, fries, shakes, and malts and we ate every last bit of food. So, although there were snowflakes in the air yesterday, I am choosing to ignore them and instead share this delicious Chocolate Crunch Ice Cream Cake!
How To Make Chocolate Ice Cream Cake
Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and continue heating and stirring at 15-second intervals, until smooth.
Pour the melted chocolate over crispy chocolate cereal and stir to coat.
Spread the coated cereal out on a piece of parchment paper to cool and harden. Then, break into smaller pieces.
Mix together the chocolate ice cream and two cups of the coated cereal.
Spread the mixture into a 9-inch springform pan.
Top with the remaining chocolate coated cereal and press it gently press into the ice cream.
Wrap the chocolate ice cream cake tightly with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 4-6 hours or overnight (depending on your freezer) until hardened.
Remove the plastic wrap, slide a knife around the edges of the springform pan and then remove the sides.
Place the chocolate crunch ice cream cake on a plate or platter. Add additional cereal around the edge of the platter, if desired.
To cut the cake into slices, dip a knife in hot water, quickly dry it off and then slice the cake, reheating the knife, as needed.
Everyone loved this Chocolate Crunch Ice Cream Cake. It is cool and delicious with a triple dose of chocolate! Once the ice cream cake started melting, we served the softened cake to the younger kids in ice cream cones.
