Ice Cream Cake Layers

This cake has a total of six layers:

  • peanut butter crust just like an Oreo crust or Nilla wafer crust, this crust is a simple mixture of peanut butter cookie crumbs and butter. And yes, I do realize that with a crust this cake is really more like a pie, but just go with it.
  • hot fudge topping can use store bought hot fudge topping or make your own.
  • peanut butter cups -I used full size Reeses peanut butter cups but you could chop up miniature Reeses if you prefer.
  • 1st layer of ice cream I used Crystals Double Vanilla ice cream because its AMAZING.
  • 2nd layer of ice cream I used Crystals Moose Tracks ice cream because its the perfect complement to all the chocolate and peanut butter going on in this ice cream cake.
  • hot fudge drizzles, whipped cream and Reeses minis I used fresh whipped cream to decorate but you can also use frozen whipped topping and spread it over the top of the cake and around the outside.
  • Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

    REESES Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake

    GAH, have more beautiful words ever been read/seen/uttered? Whats better than peanut butter cup ice cream? Ill wait.

    For this cake, we are mixing up our own peanut butter ice cream. The beauty of mixing up our own is that you get to make it as peanut-butter-cuppy as you want. YES YES YES. Dreams do come true.

    I use about 12 peanut butter cups, which I dont know, might seem like a lot, but my friends, this is an ice cream cake and we are NOT cutting corners. We are including ALL the peanut butter cups we can.

    Chop up the cups, then mix them in the slightly softened vanilla ice cream. As with the chocolate ice cream, having it slightly softened will allow you to easily mix and spread the ice cream.

    Dont want to mix your own peanut butter cup ice cream? You can certainly buy a version of peanut butter cup ice cream that you love instead of doing so.

    Once the peanut butter layer is down, Im sure you guessed it spread on that thick layer of fudge on top because OBVIOUSLY were adding more fudge. You have been paying attention, havent you?

    Now, the thing to note is that this final layer of fudge goes on after the final freeze of the cake.

    The final fudge layer goes on just before serving so that it remains super fudgy and shiny, which makes the presentation key and helps the toppings stick to the final layer. You can pop it back in the freezer for about 30 minutes before serving if youd like the fudge topping a little more firmed up, too.

    Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

    We usually have some kind of ice cream in our freezer at all times because it is our daughters favorite dessert. Every year she asks for an ice cream cake for her birthday. Over the years this mint chocolate chip ice cream cake and this cookie dough ice cream cake are a few of her favorite combos.

    We always have so much fun making and devouring these DIY ice cream cakes together. To change things up we decided to layer ice cream sandwiches in a pan with hot fudge and candy. We had bags of Reeses peanut butter cups and Reeses Pieces in the pantry, thats what we went with.

    You honestly cant go wrong with whatever candy you use. Think of all the combos you could do! Caramel sauce with Snickers bars. Marshmallow topping and Three Musketeers.the possibilities are endless.

    Tips For Making Ice Cream Cake

    Reeses Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake with Flowers

    Since this cake is literally just all ice cream, and no cake, its important to have your freezer ready. A cold freezer with space for your springform pan is essential.

    Youll freeze each layer of the cake in between additions. Doing this makes it easier to spread it each, and ensures less melting.

    Using a springform pan makes serving the cake a breeze and I hiiiighly recommend using one . Pop off the outside and either remove the cake from the bottom or be a rebel like I can be and gently cut it on the pan.

    You can see the layers beautifully then, and it removes the stress of getting each piece out of a pan.

    Soften the ice cream a little before spreading in on each layer. I recommend taking the ice cream out of the freezer for about 10 minutes before adding it to the cake.

    The slightly softened ice cream will spread easier, resulting in a more uniform layer and saving you some muscle work. It also helps when you mix the peanut butter cups and vanilla ice cream.

    Add the final layer of fudge before serving. Ive found that letting the cake completely freeze through solidifies the cake more and when the final layer of fudge is put on, it easily does so. If not, it tends to slip and slide around, leaving a strange-looking top to the cake.

    You can then freeze the fudge for another 30 minutes or go ahead and serve. Of course, after youve added your toppings.

    Reeses Ice Cream Cake Dairy Queen Copycat

    Several years ago, it was my husbands birthday. I forget why, but it was a particularly terrible week and I never even made him a special birthday dinner . So you can bet I didnt make him a birthday cake. Or even birthday cake ice cream.

    I ended up buying a Dairy Queen Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard Ice Cream Cake. It was yummy, but as if I didnt feel bad enough, they spelled his name wrong. His name is Bill tough one there, right?

    Wait, theres more! I sent my mom to pick up the cake, and she told the guy his name while she was IN.THE.STORE. It wasnt even like it was a bad cell phone connection. And he spelled the name wrong.

    This is what we got

    Naturally I had to make up for it. Thats where this Reeses Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake comes in. A much tastier and prettier version of what I bought. And I made this one completely from scratch! Nope, its not made with cartons of ice cream. But no, it doesnt involve cooking custard and churning in an ice cream machine either.

    It starts with NO-CHURN ICE CREAM!
