Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

I mentioned a few weeks back that my family and I joined a gym.  We’ve been going very regularly and to my surprise, I’ve actually enjoyed it.  We’ve also been eating better…lots of veggies and lean meat, nothing fried and smaller potions all around.  So, you’re probably asking yourself how in the world does Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake fit into a better diet and exercise?!

Great question.  After all, you can’t have any of those things (chocolate chip cookies, ice cream or cake) when you’re trying to watch what you’re eating, much less all of them put together in the same dessert!  And if by some miracle you did pull it off it probably wouldn’t be very tasty, right?

I just have a 5 words for you…..DREYER’s SLOW CHURNED® Ice Cream!  

With DREYER’s SLOW CHURNED® flavors, you can give your family something good, in more ways than one.  It has half the fat and one-third fewer calories than regular ice cream. 

What about the taste?  DE-LICIOUS!!!  Seriously, it was amazing! Everyone in my family loved it.  My husband said it was the best frozen dessert I’ve ever made.  Now, we’ve been married almost twenty-three years so he’s had more than a few of my frozen desserts. 

For this recipe I used two flavors, DREYER’s SLOW CHURNED® Cookie Dough and DREYER’s SLOW CHURNED® French Silk.  The flavors complemented each other perfectly.  I also used a packaged cookie mix to make the preparations easier.  The cake does require some time in the freezer between layers so do plan ahead. This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake is a wonderfully refreshing summer dessert and looks great. It’s simple enough for a casual family dinner or fancy enough for an elegant dinner party.

So, half the fat, one-third fewer calories, tastes great AND….BONUS….$1 off coupon for DREYER’s SLOW CHURNED® ice cream at Tom Thumb….my favorite store.  To get the coupon, simply sign into your Just 4 U account, find the coupon and load the offer to your loyalty card.  When I visited my Tom Thumb store, they had paper coupons right on the door of the freezer!  How great is that!?  I already had one for each of my ice creams but the man shopping next to me hadn’t seen them.  When I pointed the coupon out to him he was so excited he bought an extra carton! 

Now, I’m not claiming this is “diet” food, just less fat and calories, because sometimes you just need dessert and all things should be done in moderation! 

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 1 pouch or box of chocolate chip cookie mix, plus required ingredients
  • 1 tub DREYER’s SLOW CHURNED® Cookie Dough ice cream
  • 1 tub DREYER’s SLOW CHURNED® French Silk.
  • 1 package store-bought chocolate chip cookies (for garnish)
  • 1 tub whipped topping
  • Homemade whipping cream (for piping)
  • Hot fudge ice cream topping (low-fat or sugar-free for less calories) 

You’ll also need:

  • Springform pan
  • Parchment paper (or waxed paper)
  • Non stick cooking spray

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Remove bottom of springform pan and place on a sheet of waxed or parchment paper

Trace around and cut a circle to fit inside the pan

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Make sure if you have any pen or pencil marks left on your paper you place those on the bottom of the pan, away from your food

Place bottom back into springform pan

Using a paper towel sprayed with non stick cooking spray, lightly coat the sides of the pan

*Using the paper towel allows you to control the amount of spray.  You don’t need much but it will help ensure your ice cream cake can be removed from the pan.*

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Mix cookie dough according to package directions

Using the back of a large spoon, coated with non stick spray (or floured hands) spread the cookie dough evenly over the bottom of the pan

Bake according to package directions (about 10-15 minutes)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Remove from oven, place on wire rack and allow to cool in pan for about 10 minutes

Remove sides from pan and allow cookie to cool completely on wire rack

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

About 10-15 minutes before your cookie is ready, remove Cookie Dough ice cream from freezer and allow to soften

*Do not let it get too “melty”, just soft enough to spread*

Take about 10 of the store-bought cookies and crush into pieces (not too small)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Return cookie to springform pan and spread ice cream evenly over cookie

*If you’re using a large pan, the whole container should fit*

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Working quickly:

Heat fudge topping just until it will pour or can be easily spooned (too much and it will melt the ice cream)

Spread the cookies over the ice cream and top with fudge sauce

Place on a larger baking sheet (just in case you have ice cream drips) and return to the freezer for at least 2 hours, or until ice cream is firm

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Remove French Silk from freezer and allow to soften about 10-15 minutes

Spread over cake and return to freezer again for at least 2 hrs.  You will need to make sure the cake is very well set before attempting to cover with the whipped topping

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

When cake is nice and firm, remove from freezer

Take off the sides of the pan (you may need to run a thin knife around the sides to help loosen)

Carefully remove bottom of pan and waxed or parchment paper

Place on serving platter

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Cover with tub whipped topping and return to freezer

Once the cake is frozen you can cover with plastic and it will stay for a couple of days

It can be left as is or decorated

When ready to decorate fill a piping bag with medium star tip with Homemade Whipped Cream  and crush the rest of the bag of cookies (leave in medium to large pieces)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

Place cookies in center of cake and pipe a row or two around top edge

Pipe a row of stars around bottom edge of cake where it meets the platter

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake #IceCreamHero #ad

At this point the cake may be served or stored in the freezer for later

For easier cutting and serving:

Place knife in warm water while cake is sitting, wipe dry before cutting
