Who doesn't love a simple AND delicious dessert recipe. One that feeds a large crowd yet doesn't take you hours to prepare? This busy mom does. That is why this OREO Ice Cream Dessert is the perfect combination of simplicity and it impresses.
Layers of chocolate angel food cake, vanilla ice cream and birthday OREOS and you have a fun and eye popping dessert. The angel food cake is made from a box (with a little something to make it chocolate) and the whipping cream that tops this ice cream dessert is can be whipped up in a hurry. (See what I did there?)
Making a chocolate angel food cake
The recipe is really very simple... look on the back of the box. Just kidding. Actually, I used the Pillsbury angel food cake mix and it was on the back of the box. If yours doesn't say it, add 1/3 cup of cocoa powder to the angel food cake mix and blend as normal. That's it.
The chocolate flavor with the taste of the angel food cake just pairs well together. It rather surprising, actually. But, it is so good.
What flavor ice cream should we use?
I used vanilla in this recipe or more specially, a french vanilla. My husband isn't a chocolate ice cream fan (I know, can you imagine?) so I wanted to steer clear of that.
You could certainly use chocolate or a birthday cake ice cream. I also think an ice cream with a caramel swirl would be tasty as well. Either way, the vanilla is the starting point and make sure the size is 1.5 quarts.
The best way to store the leftovers of this dessert (if you have any) is to keep it in the original 9x13 pan and wrap tightly with foil. You are not going to want to leave the ice cream out for a long period of time while serving up this dish. It will melt so you will have to serve it, then stick it in the freezer.
Be sure to remind guests to go back for seconds!
