This S'mores Ice Cream Cake has layers of graham crackers, chocolate sauce and a marshmallow vanilla ice cream- the perfect s'mores treat to beat the heat!This cake is made in a 9x5 loaf pan so it is the size of a loaf of bread! It can usually feed between 8-10 people depending on serving size!
Freezing Time (overnight preferred)4hrs
Servings: 1small cake
1.5 quart(48 oz.)vanilla ice cream
2sleevesgraham crackers (16 crackers)
1(15.5 oz)jar of chocolate sauce see notes
1(13 oz.)Marshmallow Cream2 -7 oz. containers work too
optional-mini marshmallows for topping when serving
Let vanilla ice cream soften for 5-10 minutes. Line a 9x5 loaf pan with plastic wrap.
In a large bowl, mix the softened vanilla ice cream and marshmallow cream together. It is ok if some of the marshmallow cream doesn't mix in fully.
Take a few graham crackers and layer them in the bottom of the loaf pan, breaking them into pieces so they fit neatly.
Spread a thin layer of chocolate sauce on top of the graham crackers, and top with 1/3 of the vanilla marshmallow ice cream.
Repeat layers 2 more times and end with a layer of graham crackers on top.
Cover the cake with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours (overnight is preferred- the longer the freezer time the better).
When ready to serve, take the cake and turn it upside down on a serving platter or cutting board. Let the cake sit out for a few minutes so it can soften on the sides so the pan can slip off easy. You can also take a warm, clean kitchen towel and place it on the loaf pan to soften the sides of the cake a bit faster.
Once the pan will slide of the cake with ease, remove the pan and the plastic wrap. Top with your remaining chocolate sauce and crumbled graham crackers. I like to add some mini marshmallows on top just to make it look more S'mores-ish, but this is totally optional!
Slice and enjoy! This can easily feed 8-10 people depending on the serving size!
I use a thick chocolate sauce for the chocolate layer, but good ol Hershey's Chocolate syrup works great too!
