With layers of cookies & cream ice cream, graham crackers, chocolate, whipped cream, and Torani Cookies and Cream sauce, this ice cream cake will wow your guests at any celebration. Such a simple recipe that can even be made in advance!
If you’re looking for an over-the-top cake for your next party, this is it. It’s an ice cream cake with everything. All the best parts of a sundae.
And be prepared to be asked for the recipe. My MIL actually pulled me aside to rave over it. Now that’s a stamp of approval.
While creating this fabulous ice cream cake, I was inspired by the Torani Cookies & Cream Sauce. We love Torani sauces in our house, for everything from special coffee recipes to desserts to fun snacks like these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites. With so many flavors options, you can stock up at Walmart and use them in all your favorite treats.
To prep this ice cream cake, I laid out all the ingredients for a few minutes (to allow the ice cream and whipped cream to soften a bit) and got to work. You’ll need a springform pan and a spatula.
This recipe couldn’t be simpler. You just smooth each layer, alternating between ice cream and toppings. And it’s totally customizable. Like nuts in your sundae? Add a layer. Want to finish off the cake with maraschino cherries? Go for it.
Freeze cake for 4 hours to overnight. You can even let it sit the freezer for a week, if you want to make it in advance. I love prepping party food ahead of time. It’s a busy mom trick for sure!
About 5 minutes before serving, pull cake out of freezer. This step is especially important if the cake has been frozen for awhile. As soon as the springform pan can be released from the cake, it is ready to be cut and served! Tip: for easy cutting, warm a knife under hot warm, then dry off, before cutting into cold cake.
Look at all those layers! And I love to top ice cream cakes with even more dessert toppings. The Torani Cookies and Cream sauce really takes this ice cream cake over the top. Enjoy!
