I made a cake that was forbidden choc on the bottom, pb cup ice cream with peanut butter in the center and pieces and cups on top. Let's say the person liked peanut butter just a little.
So this one cost me less than 8 bucks and well I guess it depends on how big your portions are going to be as to how many it will feed. It should feed a crowd though ;)
A springform pan, I use a medium size
2 half gallons of ice cream that softens easily, make sure the edges are just beginning to soften when you start (ie Edys, Blue Bunny, Turkey Hill or Friendly's)
1 package of Oreo's (I started with 12, and ended up using 15 total)
1 gallon plastic bag
1 small container of cool whip/whipped topping
1. Make sure pan is assembled tightly. And that you have made space in the freezer, sometimes I place it on a cutting board or cookie sheet for easy transport.
5. Add the next layer of ice cream (I chose chocolate chip cookie dough). MY trick here is to scoop across layers and lay them down so you don't shift and pick up the cookies. Press it and spread it into a smooth layer. Again, work fast because the ice cream will begin to leak out. **If you are making this in the summer or on a warm day, in between the layers set in the freezer**
That's it! Freeze solid at least over night or two days and make sure you let it thaw a bit before attempting to cut into it.
Enjoy! I know I will and Happy Birthday to me. ;)
