Vanilla-Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

Vanilla-Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

The hot weather is upon us and we start craving ice cream almost every day! Sometimes we even have ice cream parties - we get lots of different flavors and try different combinations. Usually we can't even try them all because we get more than we are able to eat!

I started making an ice cream cake to combine even more flavors together. It's easy and fun because there is no baking. Get a store-bought pound cake and just layer it with the ice cream, cookies, and sauce and it's done! After this one, you'll be wanting to try more flavor combinations!
