Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake
1 box of your favorite cake mix (the box will list ingredients for making the cake–you’ll most likely need eggs, butter and oil).
6 cups of Mitchell’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
1.5 cups whipping cream
2 T powdered sugar
2-3 drops of green food coloring
- Heat oven to 325 in a nonstick pan. Grease the bottoms of two 9-inch round cake pans with butter or cooking oil and line bottoms with waxed paper. Make cake batter as directed on the box of your favorite brand. Spoon evenly into pans.
- Bake as directed on box for 9-inch rounds, and stick a toothpick in the center of the cake to make sure it’s done. If the toothpick comes out clean, you can take the cake out of the oven and let it cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cooling racks. Remove waxed paper. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
- Line 9-inch round cake pan with foil. Spoon and spread Mitchell’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream evenly in pan. Cover with foil and freeze until completely frozen, about 2 hours.
- On serving plate, place 1 cake layer with rounded side down. Remove ice cream from pan; peel off foil. Place on top of cake. Top with remaining cake layer, rounded side up.
- In medium bowl, beat whipping cream, powdered sugar and food color on high speed until stiff peaks form. Frost side and top of cake with whipped cream. Freeze about 2 hours or until firm. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before serving.
