{Fudge Brownie Layered Ice Cream Cake}

A few years ago my niece was in town during someone's birthday and she offered to make the world's best ice cream cake...
Go right ahead.
Turns out she was right. This cake rivals Baskin Robbins or Cold Stone any day.

Now this cake has become our family's tradition for birthdays. There just aren't enough birthdays in the year though. I could eat this every day!

The part that is the most fun is coming up with your favorite combination.
Ours is mint chocolate chip ice cream with oreos. But you could also use Grasshopper cookies...they are good, too. You can also do a chocolate-based ice cream and use Nutter Butters. The possibilities are endless with this cake!

You'll need:

1 box family size brownie mix
1/2 gallon ice cream
1 package oreos
1 bottle hot fudge (premium thick stuff)

Prepare brownie mix according to package directions, and pour batter into a greased springform pan. Bake for about 20 minutes (you'll want to underbake these a bit.. You won't be able to chew frozen, fully-cooked bites of brownie!). Cool completely.

Line the outside of the pan with whole oreos, pushing them down into the brownies a bit so they stay in place.

Spread half of the ice cream on top of the brownies:

Crush up the remaining oreos and sprinkle half of them on top of the ice cream:

Now it's time for the fudge. I like this Smuckers brand or Ms. Richardson's. But make sure it's the thick stuff that comes in the bigger bottle.

It's easiest to dollop it all over evenly and then start spreading it around.

This is the trickiest part...just spread it as evenly as you can.

Next, layer the rest of the ice cream on top of the fudge. This is a little tricky, too...I always have to use my finger to help, but then you can spread it smoothly and evenly with a hot spatula or something when you are done to make it nice and even.

 Finally, sprinkle the rest of the oreo crumbles on the top. Wrap it up in foil and freeze for several hours or overnight.

When you are ready to serve, remove the foil and undo the springform pan. You will be left with this beautiful masterpiece:

 Slice it, plate it, and ENJOY the heaven that is this cake!

I love the idea about using a brownie base! I make this with a crumbled oreo cookie base(melt a stick of butter and crush a whole package or oreos, mix and press into pan). I heat the fudge in the microwave to make it easier to spread a little bit, then I add ice cream and a layer of cool whip on top. I like the idea of the cookies around the edge and using different ice cream flavors:) I would also like to try mixing in some chopped candy bars into the ice cream or sprinkled on top! Yum! I might have to make one of these soon!
