Mike's Famous Ice Cream Cake (especially for Liz)
This is SOOOO easy that you will be shocked you've not been doing it for years! ::snort::
You can make it harder by using home made ice cream, making your own fudge sauce, cookie dough, cookies etc. I'm going to give you the EASY version.
2 1/2 gal of ice cream (your choice)
fillings (your choice)
Assemble. You're done.
OK - this is what the one above is....
Nearly 1 gal of Breyers Natural Vanilla (FG ok)
Hard shell (one label is FG approved - most aren't)
Take spring form pan (though you could use any pan), sprinkle bottom with crushed Newman O's (oreos). Put 1/2 gal of ice cream in pan. Layer lots of Newman O's (my favorite is actually Reece's bars), cover with hard shell (or hot fudge, butterscotch, strawberry - whatever). Cover with more ice cream (as much will fit in the pan), top with more Newman O's and hard shell.
Place in freezer overnight. Pull out about 5 minutes before you want to slice, remove the sides....there you go.
We've made this with tons of different flavors and options...it's always good...this is the favorite with most the younger children, and is on Zander's diet, so this is one we use often. Liz, one of my favorites is chocolate ice cream, Recees and Butterfingers and hard shell in the middle....chocolate overload....but the rest of the family doesn't really like that one.
