S'mores Ice Cream Cake

summer means two things: it's hot (which calls for ice cream) and it's s'mores season (when isn't it though...). we took these two treats and rolled them up into one, making a perfectly indulgent summer dessert! 

 

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 potato chip chocolate bar, melted
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • half a pack of graham crackers (crushed)
  • ice cream (we went with vanilla)

Toppings:

  • 2 potato chip bars
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • mini marshmallows

Instructions

  1.  preheat oven to 350º and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. whisk eggs until light and frothy (about 2 minutes)
  3. add in the sugar, oil, and vanilla. whisk until combined. 
  4. add flour, melted chocolate, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. mix with a rubber spatula. 
  5. pour onto baking sheet and spread to cover. Tap baking sheet a couple of times to get out the air bubbles. 
  6. bake for 12 minutes. 
  7. lay down a towel and coat in cocoa powder. 
  8. flip the cake onto the towel then remove the parchment paper from the back. and roll up the cake in the towel. 
  9. chill in the fridge for 1 hour. 
  10. unroll and add a heavy coating of crushed graham crackers and then ice cream. smooth the ice cream out over the cake. optional: add more graham crackers.
  11. tightly roll the cake up. 
  12. freeze for at least 3 hours. 

For the topping:

  1. chop potato chip bars and place them in a microwavable bowl. 
  2. heat the heavy cream until it is steamy. 
  3. add the heavy cream to the chocolate and stir. 
  4. pour over ice cream cake, and add more crushed graham crackers. 
  5. freeze for 30 minutes. 
  6. while the cake is freezing, spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. 
  7. make a mound of marshmallows the approximate length of the cake. 
  8. broil for 1 minute, watching to make sure they don't burn. 
  9. using a spatula, take the marshmallows off the pan and place them on your cake. note: if you have a torch, you can place the marshmallows directly on your cake and torch them! 

cut and enjoy!
