Admittedly, we're not into making an ice cream commitment. We're more of "this is just a summer fling". Which is perfectly okay. What we don't demolish in the colder months, we make up for come summer. Plus, it's hard to not feel like a carefree child again when you're enjoying a cone or a sundae. And for us, that's a chocolate cone or sundae. According to Damn Good Ice Cream, chocolate rules.
P.S. Are we the only one that isn't down with the looks of this graphic? Calling Captain Deuce...
Anywho... There are some ambitious folk out there that actually have the time to make their own ice cream. We're so jealous... Vanilla is the most-searched recipe, followed by strawberry, and chocolate. But avocado, green tea, and pumpkin are gaining in popularity. We're not that trendy.
Here's an easy dessert featuring ice cream, courtesy of Betty Crocker.
Fudge Ice-Cream Dessert
1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ chocolate fudge cake mix
½ cup butter or margarine, melted
1 can or jar (16 oz) hot fudge topping, warmed
2 cups chopped Oreo chocolate creme sandwich cookies (20 cookies)
½ gallon vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Line bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with foil, leaving foil overhanging at 2 opposite sides of pan. Grease or spray bottom only of foil.
In large bowl, mix cake mix, butter and eggs with spoon until blended (batter will be very thick). Using greased fingers, spread or pat in pan. Bake 18 to 21 minutes or until surface appears dry and is no longer shiny. Run knife around side of cake to loosen. Cool completely in pan, about 1 hour.
Spread warmed fudge topping over cake; sprinkle with 1 cup of the chopped cookies. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
Spread ice cream over cookies. Cover and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight until firm. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup chopped cookies. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes before serving. For easier cutting, remove from pan, using foil to lift.
Store covered in freezer.
