Easy DIY Sea Salt Caramel & Cookie Ice Cream Cake

Easy DIY Sea Salt Caramel & Cookie Ice Cream Cake

Never buy Ice Cream Cake again! Thank goodness for DIY recipes. My little guy was pretty specific in wanting an Ice Cream Cake for his birthday. I usually make the birthday cakes around here, so buying a birthday cake was a first for me. I knew that I could get one  at the ice cream store, but I also knew how much money I would have to spend there.

I couldn’t find one ice cream cake in the two stores I looked in. So, I opened  my phone up and looked to (where else?) Pinterest for help! I knew there had to be a recipe out there somewhere, and I checked a couple of them out.

I noticed that a lot of the cakes had an Oreo layer and a whipped topping layer like this one

Light bulb! I’ve been making Oreo truffles for years, so I knew I had this one covered!

  • 8 oz. frozen whipped topping – softened

  2. Add the cream cheese and blend together until a thick paste is formed
  3. Spread half of the cookie mixture on the bottom of the pan
  4. Add a thick layer of ice cream to the cookie mixture
  5. Take out the rest of the cookie mixture and place it on wax paper
  6. Roll it out into a 9 in. circle
  7. Lift the wax paper up and invert it over the ice cream layer releasing the layer of cookie over the top

Notes

  • You can add another sheet of wax paper over the cookie mixture before rolling it out to avoid it sticking to your rolling pin. I do this for everything!
