Show Dad S’more Love with This Delicious Dessert

The heat is on and summer is in full swing. Surely you knew a post with ice cream was coming soon. We love ice cream at The Blind Pig Blog. Nothing says, “Hello, Summer!” like some yummy ice cream. However, another thing that makes us think of summer is sitting around a roaring campfire roasting marshmallows and eating s’mores. Yumm-O! What a better idea than to combine two of summer’s favorite treats into one yummy calorie-filled treat for Dad? Yes, of course, we will say that we just HAVE to make this dessert for Dad! So in support of dads everywhere, we will sacrifice and share with you the recipe for S’mores Ice Cream Cake.

Like most ice cream cakes, this recipe is not difficult to follow, but you do need to plan a day or two in advance. This is not something that can just be whipped up at the last minute. To create this delectable dessert you will need graham crackers (of course), whole toasted almonds, sugar, unsalted butter, vanilla ice cream, fudge sauce, Caffe’ Borghetti Espresso Liqueur, marshmallow crème, and miniature marshmallows.

To start you will preheat the oven to 350 degrees while you finely grind the graham crackers, toasted almonds and sugar together in a food processor. Add melted butter and process until moist crumbs form. Next press the graham mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a springform pan. Bake the crust for about 12 minutes. Cool the crust completely.

After crust is completely cooled, remove ice cream from the freezer and soften. Spoon a layer of ice cream into the bottom of the crust approximately one inch thick.

You can make your own fudge sauce for the cake or cheat (which is what we did this time). If you are cheating, empty a jar of Smucker’s Fudge Sauce into a small microwaveable bowl. Add one ounce of Caffe’ Borghetti Espresso Liqueur to the sauce and heat in the microwave for about 1 minute. Stir together Caffe’ Borghetti and sauce until smooth. Spoon half of the fudge sauce over the layer of ice cream. Place the cake into the freezer for two hours. After two hours remove the ice cream and soften again. Spoon a layer of softened ice cream on top of the bottom layer of ice cream and fudge. Add an additional layer of fudge on top of the second layer of ice cream. Return the cake to the freezer for 12-24 hours. You may want to save some fudge to drizzle over the top of the cake before serving.

Remove cake from freezer. Spread a thin layer of marshmallow crème over the top of the cake. Sprinkle the cake with mini marshmallows. At this point you have two choices in how you would like to proceed. The first choice is to place the cake on a cookie sheet, turn on the broiler in your oven and lightly toast the marshmallows. However, placing an ice cream cake into a warm oven sounded a little contradictory to us, so we opted for another option. Option 2 is to use a small kitchen torch to toast the marshmallows. We lightly toasted the marshmallows with the kitchen torch and it worked perfectly. We did not have to worry about melting our ice cream cake in the oven and we had yummy toasted marshmallows. We understand that everyone is not as lucky as Rhonda to have a family who gifts unique kitchen gadgets for Christmas and birthdays, so we wanted you to be informed of the oven option.

After toasting, drizzle remaining fudge over the top of the toasted marshmallows. Cut into single servings and let your family enjoy the ultimate taste of summer.

We hope you and your dad or dads love this dessert. If you want to make this dessert and just think of your dad while you are eating it, that’s okay too! Either way, Happy Father’s Day to all of the great dads out there. We love you!


These Mini Ice Cream Cakes Are:

  • Individually portioned: As much as I love ice cream cake, I don’t always have a reason to buy one or the space in my freezer! These Mini Ice Cream Cakes are the perfect treat for those anytime of the week or year when you feel like an individual portion of ice cream cake.
  • Easy to make: I use my homemade no churn birthday cake ice cream for the recipe. It’s a super easy recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream maker.
  • Easy to make with store bought substitutions: If you don’t have birthday cake ice cream in your freezer or aren’t able to whip some up, you can use pretty much any ice cream instead!
  • Adjustable: Since they are individually portioned, you can use different flavored ice creams and add ins for everyone if you like.

Graham Cracker Icebox Cake

Old fashioned icebox cakes are making a comeback and with good reason. Easy to make and extremely versatile, icebox cakes can be flavored to your liking and are the best of desserts to feed many. Made famous by wafer and cookie companies when iceboxes were making their debut in everyday life, these no-bake recipes made a difference in households all over the world. They needed little attention and were the proud product of modern inventions. Our decadent graham cracker icebox cake requires simple ingredients, very little work, and, a few hours in, you guessed it, your "icebox."

We used vanilla pudding for ours, but chocolate, butterscotch or lemon will also make a fantastic cake. Instead of the chocolate frosting, try vanilla, buttercream, or caramel. Swap the classic graham crackers for honey or chocolate. There is nothing you couldn't do to adjust this cake to your palate, but our only advice is to abstain from sandwich cookies—it might sound appealing in theory but in practice, they are too thick to properly soften in the pudding mixture to the right consistency.

Make the cake the night before your event for perfect consistency. The more the cake sits in the cold refrigerator, the better the texture is and the more the ingredients set. If by any chance you are in need of many desserts with a few days difference, simply make two of these cakes, chill both, and freeze one for later use. When ready to eat, simply thaw overnight and serve. Your cake will remain delicious for a month if properly covered in cling wrap. To serve, add some additional whipped cream on top and decorate to taste. Before you start, make sure to buy instant pudding. If it needs cooking it will defeat the easiness of the recipe.


The Base

I subscribe to the idea that an ice cream cake requires if not cake, then at least some sort of carby base. Actual cake is not ideal for freezing as its open crumb structure makes it susceptible to drying out. The solution to that problem: Keep sponge cakes thin enough that they will rehydrate in melting ice cream and consider an insulating dab of simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water boiled together). Or just go with my personal preference (which is the way I went with this new recipe): Use brownies or blondies—their higher fat and sugar contents mean they never fully freeze, retaining fudginess and chew.

1. Place a cake layer on the sheet tray and top with ice cream. Carefully transfer your first cake layer to the plastic wrap-lined and chilled sheet tray. Spoon 1.5 cups of softened ice cream all over the top of the cake layer.

2. Smooth out the ice cream. Using a knife or offset spatula, smooth the ice cream so it covers the entire cake layer. You should have a thick, solid layer of ice cream.

5. Spread out the second layer of ice cream. Smooth the ice cream so it covers the crushed cookies or the crunchy layer of your choosing.

6. Add the second cake layer and freeze. Top the ice cream with the second cake layer. Then place the cake in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours or until the cake and ice cream is completely frozen (it should be hard to the touch).

7. Remove cake from freezer and add topping. You want to make sure your finished creation doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan, so pull up the plastic wrap "handles" and very gently pull the cake from the pan. Spread topping, such as fudge sauce, meringue or whipped cream, over the cake and place it back in the freezer for an hour, or until it sets.


Additional Toppings for Ice Cream Cake

I love using hot fudge, caramel and some unsalted peanuts as toppings on this cake, but the options are endless! You could layer M&Ms, chocolate chips, crushed toffee bars, peanut butter cups, sprinkles, butterscotch chips, just about any candy you like in between layers of ice cream sandwiches and whipped cream. And just about any sundae toppings taste delicious! Caramel, butterscotch, hot fudge, mint chocolate, cherry syrup, the sky’s the limit!
