Black currant – Hide ‘n’ Seek Ice cream cake

It was weekend and also my birthday πŸ˜‰ (i am getting old ) πŸ˜› and i didn’t want to raise even a finger to do or make anything πŸ˜‰ ………It is my birthday after all πŸ˜€ ……….But Pakhi was super excited and had plans (which included cooking…….sigh !!! )

Since i am known for my sneakiness πŸ˜‰ i thought of a few easy to do recipes πŸ˜‰ My darling girl had made my day beautiful with her love and gifts for me. Apparently she had been saving some of her pocket money for all this. ❀ ❀

She wanted me to bake a chocolate cake with all the works :/ but seriously i didn’t feel upto it 😦

So i tempted her taste -buds with something new………Ice cream cakeΒ  πŸ˜€

I already had the required ingredients at home and it is a no fuss, no bake cake πŸ™‚

Black currant ice cream cake

Here’s what i did……….

INGREDIENTS

1 cup – black currant ice cream (market bought)

10 nos – hide n seek cookies/ biscuits (market bought)

8 tsp – melted dark chocolate (which will solidify well)

1 tbsp – chocolate sauce

1 tsp – table margarine (at room temperature)

METHOD

Crush the biscuits/ cookies in a food processor. Reserve 1 1/2 tsp of the crushed cookies and mix the rest with margarine. Pour this mix into a flat mould like a flan dish or a pie dish. Press it hard and refrigerate for 30 mins.

In the meantime melt the dark chocolate on a double boiler.

Take out the biscuit mix and gently push it out of the mould with a carving knife.
