More than a Late Night Snack....




Jimmy Fallon's Ice Cream Cake




My Son's Birthday is approaching very quickly this month,
And he has decided on this Ice Cream Cake
for "His" day..

I presented him with a few options,
and this is the one he chose...

OK...maybe I influenced him a bit
by asking..

"Hey Jere, How about I make you a yummmo Ice Cream Cake
for your birthday this year?!!"

His response,
"Sure, I like Bing Cherry Ice Cream"

Not exactly what I had in mind for the flavor,
but, hey....after all, it is "his" day.

I've already decided on topping his cake
and somewhere in the middle and possibly the bottom...
with chocolate!!

For the bottom crust I am using Oreo Cookie Crumbs,
adding some Caramel Topping on top of the cookie crust
before placing a layer of Ice Cream...
Adding at least one layer of Chocolate Fudge and Caramel
in between the Ice Cream layers...

And Topping with my Homemade Fudge Topping
and a Caramel Topping....
Maybe a few Cherries on Top also,
with Freshly made Whipped Cream for
Individual liking...

I am opting out on the Potato Chips on top, too,
Potato Chips on top of a cake remind me of college days,
When you were poor and threw together whatever you had on hand...


This would be the ideal cake for my son, though:/
Not sure the "others" would appreciate their Chips on top
of the cake rather on their plates...:))

I have one week to get this creation together...
First thing I must do,
whip up my homemade fudge...
and purchase the Ice Cream of his choice,
then it should be a rather easy task....
I'll keep you posted..!!

 Have a Fantastic Week...!

Here is the original recipe from Jimmy Fallon

Ingredients

  • 18 butter wafer cookies (from one 6.1-ounce package)
  • 4 (14-ounce) containers Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack ice cream, slightly softened
  • 1/2 cup Caramel Sauce
  • 3/4 cup Hot Fudge Sauce
  • 15 to 20 thin salted potato chips

Directions

  1. Wrap the bottom of a 9-inch round springform pan with two layers of plastic wrap.
  2. Place 6 wafer cookies in an even layer in bottom of prepared pan. Using a serrated knife, cut two of the containers of ice cream crosswise, each into 4 equal pieces. Remove ice cream pieces from container; discard container. Place ice cream pieces on top of cookies in pan. Place a large piece of plastic wrap over ice cream and gently press to fit into pan; remove plastic and spread with an offset spatula to make even. Drizzle with caramel sauce and top with 6 more wafer cookies; transfer to freezer and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  3. Remove springform pan from freezer. Using a serrated knife, cut remaining two of the containers of ice cream crosswise, each into 4 equal pieces. Remove ice cream pieces from container; discard container. Place ice cream pieces on top of cookies in pan. Place a large piece of plastic wrap over ice cream and gently press to fit into pan; remove plastic and spread with an offset spatula to make even. Drizzle with fudge sauce, spreading gently to make even.
  4. Top cake with potato chips; cover with plastic wrap and transfer to freezer until firm, at least 4 hours and up to overnight. To serve, unmold cake, using a kitchen torch if necessary to release sides. To slice, use a serrated knife that has been dipped in hot water and wiped dry with a clean kitchen towel.

  1. I'm not fond of ice cream K. but this looks wonderful. When we have bought birthday cake with icing, I always eat chips with the icing. Something sweet and salty. Sounds yummy.
