Our recipe uses chocolate cake and ice cream, but feel free to mix and match any flavors you want.

All Recipes recommends beating a quart of plain vanilla ice cream in your mixer until it is smooth and using it to frost the cake. It’s that easy.

Here is the devilishly easy chocolate ice cream cake recipe, courtesy of All Recipes:

Prep: 20 minutes     Cook: 30 minutes     Ready In: 3 hours

Ingredients:

1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix

1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream in a square container, softened

Optional: 1 quart vanilla ice cream for frosting

Directions:

Prepare cake according to package directions; bake in a 9×13 inch baking dish and cool completely.

Use ice cream that comes in a rectangular carton. Remove the carton and, using a piece of string or dental floss, cut the ice cream in half lengthwise (long side to long side) and place the two layers side by side on a piece of waxed paper.

Place the cooled cake over the ice cream. Using a knife, trim the cake and ice cream so that the edges match. Use a spatula or knife to smooth out the ice cream slabs and cover the seam.
