For those of you that follow this blog, you are aware that I have been a HUGE fan of ice cream and ice cream treats and cakes of all kinds as far back as I can remember.
I have always LOVED all flavors, although some flavors I enjoy more than others. I can't remember ever turning a flavor down! That's how much I enjoy ice cream.
That's just one reason I love making this recipe. The other is that it makes a great refreshing treat on a hot day. I mean, come on, it's ice cream!
Now I am going to tell you about this homemade ice cream pie recipe made with cake that is super versatile and perfect for any event or occasion! Frankly, any excuse will do to create this amazing oreo cookie crust ice cream pie masterpiece!
Homemade Ice Cream Pie Recipe WITH Cake
This creation not only includes ice cream but cake too. You can use leftover cake, even though I can't remember ever having leftover cake, make your own or buy one the next time you're at your local market.
I believe you can figure out a way to get some cake and if not I have included a recipe down below for you to use if you prefer.
No matter what you will need less than two cups of your favorite homemade or store-bought cake to make this amazing ice cream cake with cake.
Once you have solved your cake problem, like cake is ever really a problem, then you have to decide on which flavor or flavors of ice cream you want to use.
As you might imagine. Anything goes here. Just remember that the bigger the treats inside your ice cream, the more difficult it can be to get a perfectly even slice.
You can buy ice cream with treats already inside or make your own.
Imagine creating your favorite flavor or flavors of ice cream. Adding in a little of each of your favorite treats. Then, packing it inside an Oreo crust and once set serving in slices with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, or strawberry sauce.
The list goes on. I mean aren't you excited to make your new favorite ice cream cake with cake dessert?
Oreo Cookie Crust Recipe
Wait. I forgot to talk about the crust. I felt the need to publish this recipe using a graham cracker or Oreo crust. Likely because they're so easy and taste so good.
They go beautifully with this oreo cookie crust ice cream pie. Making an ice cream pie with graham cracker crust is the same amount of work and offers the exact same results.
If you're looking for Oreo cookie flavor use Oreo crumbs and if you're looking for a nutty flavor and subtle sweetness use graham cracker crumbs to make your ice cream cake with cake.
However, there is an option to use this ice cream pie oreo cookie crust recipe or our rice krispie crust. I hope you'll put this recipe on your bucket list with a rice Krispie crust at least one time.
If you enjoy rice Krispie treats then you're gonna LOVE this rice Krispie crust. Just you wait and see.
If you're looking for an ice cream pie with oreo crust then you've definitely come to the right place.
Because you can make this recipe with any kind of cake and ice cream, it's a super versatile treat to make. I thoroughly enjoy how easy it is to mix things up simply by changing your ice cream to get whatever flavor you want.
It makes an already easy recipe even more simple to make.
Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie
Use Reese's peanut butter ice cream with peanut butter cups in it.
Make your own using vanilla chocolate or whatever flavor you desire and after leaving out for less than ten minutes, cut up a little inside a bowl, add in your desired treats and mix until treats are evenly distributed.
Place inside the crust and then right back inside your freezer until frozen solid.
Oreo Ice Cream Pie
Use vanilla or your favorite flavor and add chopped-up oreo cookies. Your other option when making this oreo ice cream pie recipe is to simply blend oreo chocolate crumbs throughout your ice cream of choice
Turtle Ice Cream Pie
Anytime a recipe says turtle anything you know it generally includes chocolate, pecans, and caramel and so does this turtle ice cream pie.
Thank goodness turtle ice cream exists to make preparing this turtle pie a whole lot easier.
That being said it is super easy to make your own by simply adding pecans, chocolate chunks, or what I prefer to use is chocolate-covered caramels or Rolos.
You can just cover the top of the cake with caramel or make the ice cream have a ribbon or ribbons of caramel running throughout it.
There are also caramels or caramel chips
Chocolate Ice Cream Pie
There are so many different flavors of chocolate ice cream I urge you to have a look down the aisle of your local market to see what flavors interest you or look down the chocolate treat aisle and see what they have there.
Everything from mini's to full-size chocolate bars and chocolates to suit every taste.
So either buy a chocolate flavor that interests you or make your own.
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie
Luckily mint chocolate chip ice cream exists so creating a mint or peppermint ice cream pie could not be easier. Of course, though you can easily make it yourself and choose which chocolate mint treats to include in your ice cream.
For a peppermint ice cream pie recipe, use mint ice cream or vanilla or chocolate with chopped up Andes mints or after eights.
Strawberry Ice Cream Pie
Use a graham cracker crust or oreo or chocolate crust if you'll be using chocolate. Otherwise, grab some strawberry ice cream, or we use strawberry cheesecake ice cream because my husband loves it, covered in strawberry sauce.
We have also added some fresh strawberries, jam preserves, and/or frozen strawberries to the top or folded them into the ice cream itself, even adding some chocolate chips too.
Mud Pie Ice Cream Cake
Generally speaking, mud pie refers to a dessert filled with mocha or coffee-flavored ice cream with loads of chocolate treats and chocolate everything.
Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Pie
My husband chops up whichever stuffed cookies I have around that he likes. Usually chocolate sandwich cookies but sometimes peanut butter and sometimes maple too.
No matter the flavor my husband chops them up and mixes them with whatever ice cream he is in the mood for.
Let's not forget that toppings can change the whole flavor of the homemade ice cream cake. I love changing up the toppings because it's literally a fast way to change up the texture.
From different sauces to different foods that change up the texture and flavors of your pie, there are so many ways to dress up your already delicious homemade ice cream pie recipe.
Some of my favorite topping suggestions for this cake are:
- hot fudge
- caramel sauce
- crushed peanuts
- shredded coconut
- mini chocolate chips
- mini marshmallows
- more sprinkles
- edible glitter
- toasted pecans
- whipped cream
And those are just a few. The great part about changing up the toppings means that you have the chance to have every piece taste unique.
When is National Ice Cream Pie Day?
Let's not forget about National Ice Cream Day! This year, it falls on August 18th and this ice cream pie recipe is the perfect way to celebrate it! The more ice cream recipes you have now, the more you can make to prepare.
This Drumstick Ice Cream Cake would be a super great addition to the day as well.
