Famous Wafer Chocolate Ice Cream Cake
You won't believe how easy it is to create your own customized ice cream cake. Crushed chocolate wafers create a crunchy buttery shell that holds layers of luscious ice cream and chocolate cookies that soften just so.
- For the creamiest results, use a high quality ice cream.
- Customize your cake by using your favorite ice cream.
- Use a heavy duty hot wet knife to cut the cake.
- If you don't have a food processor, you can crush the wafers by placing them in a zip-lock bag and using a rolling pin to pound the bag.
