Everybody needs a go-to dessert and I’m pretty sure I just found mine! This oh-so-easy ice cream cake comes together so fast it can hardly even be called a recipe, and yet the pretty stripes make it an impressive showstopper. Because the only thing better than a delicious dessert that only takes minutes to throw together is one that LOOKS like it took all day!

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.

Five Minute Ice Cream Cake

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