It was weekend and also my birthday 😉 (i am getting old ) 😛 and i didn’t want to raise even a finger to do or make anything 😉 ………It is my birthday after all 😀 ……….But Pakhi was super excited and had plans (which included cooking…….sigh !!! )
Since i am known for my sneakiness 😉 i thought of a few easy to do recipes 😉 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 cake 😀
I already had the required ingredients at home and it is a no fuss, no bake cake 🙂
Here’s what i did……….
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)
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.
Apply a thick coat of the melted chocolate on the biscuit base (approx 5 tsp). Refrigerate again for 15 mins.
Meanwhile remove ice cream from the freezer to soften.
After 15 mins, take the base out and apply a thick layer of ice cream. Sprinkle some of the reserved crushed cookies / biscuits. Refrigerate (in freezer) for 3 hours.
Re- heat the remaining dark chocolate and and coat the ice cream after 3 hours. Sprinkle the rest of the crushed cookies, and refrigerate for another 30 mins.
Remove the cake from refrigeration 10 mins before serving.
Pour chocolate sauce and serve.
Happy sneaking……….oops, cooking !!! 😉
Cheers !!! 😀
Happy FF to all 🙂 Sorry for bringing the dessert late 😀 😛
