Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake. Fabulous Summer Song From Lori Kelley.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake

Q: Why didn’t the lifeguard save the hippie?
A: Because he was too far out man.

Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cookie Dough Ice Cream and most anything chocolate are favorites in my house.

Put them all together…..

Heaven!

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake is over the top wonderful. The cake and ice cream layer can be prepared ahead. You can then assemble the ice cream and cake, top with the ganache, and store in the freezer. What you get is a terrific make ahead show stopper of a dessert.

A little note: I used 8 inch pans for the cake which made for a very impressive, tall presentation. This made it a bit hard to cut slices that were anything short of huge (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). Using 9 inch pans would probably make slicing easier.

A really fantastic summery ice cream cake like this one deserves an equally fantastic summery song.

‘On Beach Time’ fits the bill perfectly.
