3-Step Ice Cream Cake

Here’s a no-bake dessert that’s sure to please!  It’s classy, beautiful, and literally takes little to no effort.  That’s my kind of recipe!  🙂

Heavenly and Super Easy Summer Dessert!


1 half-gallon container of your favorite ice cream

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup whipping cream

1.  Make sure your ice cream has been in the freezer for at least 24 hours.  Remove from the freezer and cut the carton off.  Place on a tray and refreeze until firm.

2.  Bring whipping cream to a simmer.  Make sure you watch it carefully, you don’t want it to start boiling.  Once the cream is simmering, pour it over chocolate chips.  Let stand for 1 minute.  Mix until combined and let sit at room temperature until cool, stirring occasionally.

3.  Once your ganache is cool, pour it over your ice cream.  Refreeze until the chocolate has set.  Scatter with shaved chocolate, strawberries, or top with a dollop of whipped cream.
