Smore's ice cream cake9:00 AM
My son recently had a birthday, oh no I now have a teen help me. He does not really like cake or many sweets, but he does love his smore's. So for the past few years I have made different smore's desserts for his birthday treat. This year was ice crezm cake, but there is no actual cake in this recipe. Yes this was a pintrest found recipe . It is very time consuming and has lots of steps. It is also very very rich in flavor. A little too rich for me and him as well, but still a good recipe I would just tweak it a bit next time. I think next time I would not do the chocolate layer on the bottom. The recipe was found on pintrest ,but orginated from the kraft website. It is not too diffacult to follow just a lot of steps and takes many hours so I would suggest doing most of it the day before needed. Also maybe heat your knife when ready to cut as cutting through the marshmallow layer was diffacult.
32 graham wafers, divided
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 Tbsp. sugar
6 oz. Baker's Semi-Sweet Chocolate
3 cups Cool Whip Whipped Topping (Do not thaw.)
1 tub (1.66 L) chocolate ice cream, softened
1 pkg. (250 g) Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows, divided
2 Tbsp. milk
Heat oven to 325°F.
Crush 20 wafers to form fine crumbs; place in medium bowl. Add butter and sugar; mix well. Press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Bake 12 min. or until lightly browned. Cool completely. Meanwhile, use serrated knife to score lengthwise line down centre of each of the remaining wafers; break each wafer down scored line into 2 rectangles.
Microwave chocolate and Cool Whip in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 to 2-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is blended, stirring after each minute. Let stand 15 min. Spread chocolate mixture over crust. Stand wafer rectangles, top-sides facing out, around edge of pan, pressing gently into chocolate mixture to secure. Freeze 20 min. or until filling is firm.
Cover with ice cream. Freeze 4 hours or until ice cream layer is very firm. Reserve 2 cups marshmallows when ready to serve dessert. Microwave remaining marshmallows and milk in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. 15 sec. or until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1 min. Cool 10 min.
Heat broiler. Place dessert on baking sheet; top with melted marshmallow mixture and reserved marshmallows. Broil, 6 inches from heat, 1 min. or until marshmallows are golden brown. Remove rim of pan before serving dessert.
