For this version I used chocolate chip mint ice-cream and layered it twice, but if you wanted to get even fancier you could do two different flavors of ice-cream. The mint was a great combo with the Oreos but I’m sure you could substitute your own favorite flavors with just as much success. I used my silicone loaf pan which made the cake pop right out, but as long as you line the pan with foil you should be good with a standard loaf pan as well.

This ice cream cake is easy and so delicious. What could be better than ice cream sandwiches, Oreos, ice cream and magic shell?

Here is what you need:

10 ice cream sandwiches
1-2 flavors of ice cream, slightly softened
12 Oreo cookies, finely crushed
Magic Shell ice cream topping
 

Line a pan with heavy foil to begin making your ice cream cake.

Step 1: Line a 9×5″ loaf pan with heavy foil, letting it hang over on each side.

Fit five ice cream sandwiches across the bottom to form the base of your cake.

Step 2: Fit 5 sandwiches on bottom of pan. They should be snug.

Use your fingers or a spatula to spread melted ice cream over the top of the sandwiches.

Step 3: Spread layer of ice cream over-top of sandwiches, about 1-1 1/2″ thick.

Add a second layer of ice cream sandwiches over the top of your ice cream.

Step 4: Fit remaining 5 sandwiches over ice-cream.

Top off the cake with another layer of ice cream.

Step 5: Spread 2nd layer of ice cream over sandwiches.

Add crushed sandwich cookies (Oreos) to the top of your ice cream cake.

Step 6: Cover ice-cream with crushed Oreo cookies.

Cover the cake with foil and put it in the freezer to set up.

Step 7: Cover with foil or plastic wrap and freeze until set, at least 2 hours or overnight.

When you're ready to serve, slice the ice cream cake into inch-thick slices and plate up!

Step 8:  To serve, invert cake onto plate or platter. Cover top with Magic Shell & cut into slices.
