Cookies and Cream Fudge Ice Cream Cake

Happy Memorial Day!

Here is a ridiculously easy cake to throw together in case you're one of those last minute people that forgot to make dessert for a cookout you're going to or throwing or whatever. Or it's good for keeping all to yourself and eating when everyone leaves.

My mom is the queen of amazing ice cream cakes, so I've never really attempted to make them before. I just didn't want to deal with the disappointment of expecting something great, (like my mom's) and tasting something completely NOT great.

My husbands birthday was last sunday, and he didn't want me to have to cook or bake or anything. He just wanted us to relax.

So, he did an awful thing.

For his birthday cake, he went out and BOUGHT an Ice cream cake. Do you have any idea how gross those things are?!
And they charge like, a zillion dollars for a whimpy 6-inch, flavorless cake. It was awful.

So please, please, never buy an ice cream cake. Make it. It's so easy, you have no excuse not to. It's impossible to mess can use pretty much however much of each ingredient you want- there's no right or wrong way to make this stuff. You will just be blown away by the yummy factor. AND did I mention you'll save a zillion dollars?

Cookies and Cream Fudge Ice Cream Cake

1 Container of Cookies and Cream Ice Cream (thawed so it's pretty spreadable)
1 Package of Oreos
1 Recipe for mom's hot fudge sauce (or a jar of fudge sauce, it just wont't be as good)
1 container of Cool Whip (8 oz or 16 oz...whatever your preference!)

Crumble the package of Oreos and dump into either a 8x8" pan, a 9x9" or whatever size you have!
Pour fudge sauce aaaaall over so oreos are almost completely covered.
Plop blobs of ice cream all over oreo crust and carefully smooth out.
Spread cool whip all over the top, and pop back in the freezer for at least an hour!
Enjoy this beautiful Memorial Day!
