Description

This recipe for Copycat DQ Ice Cream Cake is as close to a homemade version of your favorite Dairy Queen treat. Made simple with the assistance of store bought ice cream, Oreos, and ice cream toppings.

Ingredients

  • 1 quart Chocolate Ice Cream, Slightly Thawed
  • 8 whole Oreo Cookies
  • ½ cups Hot Fudge Sauce
  • 1 quart Vanilla Ice Cream, Slightly Thawed
  • ½ cups Heavy Cream
  • ¼ cups Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Vanialla
  • Colored Sprinkles

Preparation

In a spring form pan (I used a 9-inch pan), layer chocolate ice cream in the bottom. Smooth and return to the freezer to slightly harden, about 1–2 hours.

Remove cream filling from the Oreos and put chocolate cookies into a bag. Smash cookies in the bag until they are coarse crumbs. Pour cookie crumbs over chocolate ice cream and press in slightly. Pour the hot fudge (which may need to be slightly warmed so it is easier to work with) over the cookie crumbs and chocolate ice cream. Smooth and return to freezer for 1–2 hours until set.

Add vanilla ice cream over the top of the cake. Smooth and return to freezer 2–4 hours until completely set.

Make whipped cream for decorating by whipping together heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until stiff. Use some of whipped cream to cover sides and top of cake to hide chocolate and fudge layer. With the remaining cream, decorate using a piping bag and tip. Finish cake with colored sprinkles on top.

Notes:
1. Cover the bottom of the spring form pan with plastic wrap. It helps in transferring the cake to a plate or platter for decorating and cutting.
2. Use a hair dryer on a low setting and slowly move around the outside of the spring form pan once or twice before attempting to remove the cake for decorating. The heat helps to release the ice cream from the sides.
