Hi Everyone! My name is Taryn. I’m the daughter of KaCee who started doingsplendid some years ago. I was looking on my mom’s blog, and I decided I wanted to be part of this amazing experience! So from now on, my mom and I will be writing on here to share some splendid ideas for you! To introduce myself, I’m Taryn. I’m almost 16 years old, and I’m going to be a junior in High School. I play soccer! I got on the JV team this year, but unfortunately didn’t get to play due to Covid-19. Let’s cross our fingers things will get to normal soon! I love to bake and to do crafts! I’m excited to share some of my favorite recipes with you and some fun and easy crafts!
This recipe, let me tell you, is so delicious! For my church a couple weeks ago, they were doing a talent show. I had such a hard time deciding what to do! After many ideas I decided to make this chocolate chip ice cream cake! I sent in a picture of the finished product and during the slideshow of the talent show people were in awe and told me to bake something for them! I don’t blame them… just looking at it you can almost taste it!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Cake
Adapted slightly from Six Sisters’ Stuff
- 1 half-gallon carton chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1 (15.25-ounce) chocolate cake mix and ingredients called on package
- 1 (13-ounce) bag chewy chocolate chip cookies
- Waxed paper
Get 2 9-inch round cake pans. Follow the directions on the chocolate cake mix package and pour the batter into the 2 cake pans. Bake cake according to package and once baked let it cool and remove the cakes from the pans.
Let the ice cream partly thaw out (make sure the ice cream is not completely melted, but melted enough to spread around)
Use one of your 9-inch round cake pans to trace a circle on sheet of wax paper and place the wax paper on a cookie sheet. Make sure to spread the ice cream evenly, you don’t want it uneven or your cake will be lopsided. Once you spread the ice cream freeze until its solid. ( Hint: If the ice cream gets a little melted while molding the ice cream on the traced circle on the wax paper, if you have an another 9-inch pan put the wax paper inside and mold the ice cream in the pan. This way it doesn’t get too messy if it’s really melted. Once you do that put it in the freezer until solid)
Remove the ice cream from freezer once its solid. Place one of your 9-inch cakes on a serving platter. To level off the cake use a serrated knife or cake leveler to level the top of the cake. Carefully flip the ice cream on the level cake and then tear off the wax paper.
Now here comes the fun part! Crumble 2/3 of the cookies in the package and sprinkle the cookies across the top of the ice cream evenly. With the other 9-inch cake, place it on the cookie crumbs. Press down gently. Now return the cake to the freezer for about 1-2 hours.
Before serving your delicious cake, heat 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips and 3/4 of unsalted butter in a saucepan on medium heat. Stir the mixture until smooth. Pour the chocolate sauce over the cake having the sauce drip from the sides. With the remaining cookie crumbs, you can top it on the top of the cake. Serve immediately!
I hope you enjoy this delicious cake as much as do and I hope it brings joy to your life especially at this difficult time we are living in!
