Temps are rising and that means dessert will rarely be baked around here. We were so thrilled to share this Super Easy Summer Dessert 3 Ingredient Ice Cream Cake that we also make a two-ingredient Magic Shell.
You know that stuff that comes in a bottle and instantly hardens when it hits the cold ice cream. Well with only two ingredients and about 1 minute of your time, you will never buy the stuff at the market again.
What you need to make 3 Ingredient Ice Cream Cake
Looking around the bakery there was a loaf of pound cake and my wheels started to turn. We picked up a 2 pints of ice cream. We went with Strawberry and Chocolate Chip Häagen-Dazs and a bag of semi-sweet chocolate morsels for our dessert.
- 2 pints of Ice Cream
- Chocolate Chips
- A loaf of Pound Cake
- Coconut Oil if making hard shell
Super Easy Summer Dessert 3 Ingredient Ice Cream Cake
Leave the pints of ice cream out while you prep the pound cake so it is easy to spread.
Slice the pound cake in thirds length-wise.
Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap and place the first layer of pound cake in there.
Slice the Strawberry ice cream pints in circles and spread them onto the bottom layer of the pound cake.
Place the middle section of the pound cake and repeat the process with the second pint of your Häagen-Dazs.
Wrap the cake with the plastic wrap and press it slightly to fit into the loaf pan. Place in the freezer for at least 1 hour but ideally 12-24 hours.
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE MAGIC SHELL
To make your Magic Shell, simply place 6 oz of Semi-Sweet chocolate, we used chips, and 1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil.
Melt in a microwave in 30-second intervals until smooth. Stir until smooth.
Pour over the ice cream cake and allow it to harden. You can also slice the cake and just pour it over at the slices.
