In this instructable I will teach you how to make a Hershey's Hot Fudge Oreo Ice Cream Cake. Now you may say to yourself, that is quite a mouthful. Well, yes it is! A deliciously sweet mouthful of Oreo goodness. My first time having Ice cream cake was at a birthday party a few years back, since then I have been craving it, so I finally decided to take matters into my own hands and create this ice cream cake. To make your own Hershey's Hot Fudge Oreo Ice Cream Cake simply follow the step by step guide below or watch the video tutorial here:
Step 1: Ingredients
- 3 ¾ C Oreo cookies (crushed)
- ½ C salted Butter (that’s has been melted)
- 1.5 quarts Vanilla Ice Cream that has been softened
- 1 jar (12.8 ounces) Hershey’s Hot Fudge ice cream topping (that has been warmed)
- 1 (16 ounces) container whipped topping (thawed out)
- Mini Chocolate Chips for the topping (optional)
- Extra Oreos to decorate the top (optional)
Step 2: Crush Oreos
Start off by taking all the Oreos from the packaging and placing them into a zip loc bag. Then crush the Oreos into small pebble sized crumbs or smaller if you prefer. You will have to be a little violent in this step because grinding these cookies definitely requires some elbow grease!
Step 3: Place Crushed Oreos Into Bowl and Add Melted Butter
In a large bowl, add in the crushed cookies and butter and mix until combined. I used salted butter for this because a pinch of salt always helps enhance the flavor of any dish. You can use unsalted butter if you prefer.
Step 4: The Crust
Next press the cookie mixture into a greased 13x9 inch dish until it is compacted firmly, similar to a pie crust.
Step 5: Add Ice Cream
Add in softened ice cream to the top of the cookie mixture and carefully spread it on top, try to not disturb the cookie on the bottom. With softened ice cream this should not be much of an issue. After it is spread evenly, cover and freeze until the ice cream sets again.
Step 6: Drizzle Hot Fudge
Drizzle fudge topping over the ice cream. You will want to drizzle it slowly instead of pouring the entire bowl at once because it can melt through the ice cream creating pockets of hot fudge instead of a smooth lining which you want to avoid. Afterwards, cover and freeze once again until everything sets.
Step 7: Whipped Topping
Finally add your whipped topping all over the top of the cake and smooth everything out, it doesn't have to be perfect.
Step 8: Decorate!
Be as creative as you would like in this step! Add extra Oreos for decoration (if desired) and sprinkle in the chocolate chips all along the top or in any decorative pattern you can create, the world is yours!
Step 9: Don't Forget the Milk!
Of course anything Oreo goes hand in hand with milk!
Step 10: Cut and Serve
Go ahead and cut the cake into any size slices and serve!
Step 11: Enjoy!
Enjoy this delicious Hershey's Hot Fudge Ore Ice Cream Cake in the luxury of your own home!
