Chocolate Mint and Cherry Ice Dream Cake – a magical dreamy ice cream dessert. A perfect combination of chocolate and mint paired with fresh cherries.
The heat is finally here and loads of sunshine. That’s what I love about Alberta, is all the sunshine and blue skies. Simply gorgeous! But not only that, we don’t get humidity here, it’s just nice warm weather, not super hot where you can’t breathe outside. So on gorgeous days like this I love to make Mojitos or Mimosas and enjoy some good ice cream. That’s all I’d need, no food. Who needs food when you’ve got this heavenly chocolate mint and cherry ice dream cake. I call it ice dream cake because it’s so dreamy, just look at it.
To be honest though, I didn’t get a chance to eat much from it, because I took it over to my sister’s for a kids party she was having. Sad, I know, but I can always make more.
Last year I purchased an ice cream attachment and I was so excited when I ordered it on amazon, that I could barely wait until it arrived. I had plans, lots of plans to make all kinds of ice cream. I was going to become the ice cream queen! So how many times do you think I actually used the damn thing? 0! Yep, I never touched it! But I am hopeful again, this summer I will use it, I will make ice cream! No buts and ifs about it. I’m glad I got that off my chest.
But you don’t need an ice cream attachment for this dessert right here because this could not be easier to make. Seriously! I used chocolate mint ice cream sandwiches! I did whip up some whipping cream to put in between the ice cream sandwiches, that’s about as hard as this gets. Then all you do is layer. Ice cream sandwiches. Whipping cream. Ice cream sandwiches. Whipping cream. Ice cream sandwiches. Whipping cream. Chocolate dipping sauce. Then I topped this puppy with some Aero Bubbles peppermint and cherries, lots of cherries. And then you end up with this. A dreamy ice cream sandwich cake. The end.
