Growing up we loved drumstick ice cream cones and this cake totally satisfies that craving! They were such a treat for us when my sister and I were small. This cake is so easy to make and so yummy! Perfect for the great weather that is on the way this summer. We prefer to use pecans in this recipe but peanuts or walnuts are fabulous too! You really have to give this recipe for our No Bake Drumstick Cake a try!
When my sister and I were young we played outside all day long during the summer. Our mother would have to make us come inside! This was long before the days of video games and phones.
One of our favorite treats were a Drumstick Ice Cream Cone. We would run inside long enough to grab one out of the freezer, and then we headed back outside.
I decided that we needed a cake that has all of those great flavors. The No Bake Drumstick Cake fits the bill perfectly. I love making this cake because there is no baking! Who wants to fire up the hot oven on a hot summer day? Not me!
I made a crust that mimics the ice cream cone. When making the crust try to press the ingredients in the pan as evenly as possible.
My favorite part is the filling. Anything with cream cheese and peanut butter is a winner in my book! I also think that chocolate and caramel are just so darn delicious together!
Make sure that you that the cake has enough time in the freezer to completely set up. When you are ready to serve make sure to let the cake thaw for a few minutes before serving!
