Easy to Make Mini Ice Cream Cakes

Step 1: Individual Ice Cream Cakes

Begin by making Duncan Hines brownies in a 9 x 13 pan and make the in the chocolate fudge style. This especially makes this dessert decadent.

Break the Cookies in Half

Step 2: Add Cookie Halves to the Side of the Pan

While they are baking begin breaking Pirouette Cookies. Make these the height of the pan of your springform pan. I found these at Walmart in case you have a hard time finding these cookies. Make these the height of the pan of your springform pan.

Adding the Fudge Brownies to the Pan

Step 3: Add Brownies to the Bottom

After the brownies have cooled slightly, begin cutting pieces to fit a single-size spring form pan. Press lightly into the bottom of the pan.

Generally, I enjoy serving individual-size desserts after a large meal.

Step 4: Making the Sides of These Ice Cream Cakes Elegant

Next, lightly press the cookies into the brownie filling the edge, and freeze overnight. Freezing these overnight will also make them very cold so the cookies are frozen into place.

Making Brownie Crumbs for a Garnish

Step 5: Brownie Crumble Sprinkle on the Top

Also, any leftover brownies place into a small food processor to grind. After grinding them into brownie crumbles, place them in a bowl in the refrigerator overnight. I also did this because the brownies are fudgy and needed to stiffen. The next day remove them and they will be stiff. Don’t be concerned. Move them around with a spoon slightly and sit at room temperature.

Adding the Ice Cream

Step 6: Add the Ice Cream to the Top

Next, I began adding my extra creamy Breyers vanilla ice cream. Using a drinking glass to press the ice cream slightly to flatten it. Continue adding extra ice cream until filled to the top. Also, smooth with the back of a small spoon.

Incidentally, if you are using vanilla ice cream I highly recommend this version. It’s so creamy and Delicious!
