It has beautiful layers of coffee ice cream, chocolate brownies, Oreo crumbles, hot fudge sauce and a coffee whipped cream icing.
- Cook: 20 mins
Make brownie dough according to instructions on back of box.
Grease two 8-inch pans (preferably springform pans, see above) and line the bottoms with parchment paper to allow for easy removal. Bake at temperature on box, reducing baking time to about 20 minutes.
When brownies are done baking, allow to completely cool.
Once the brownies have cooled, make the ice cream. In a small bowl, add espresso to warm water and stir to dissolve.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth.
Add milk, sugar, espresso and kahlua to cream cheese and mix until completely combined.
Assembling it all:
Line the sides of an 8-inch springform pan with parchment paper. The parchment paper should stick up above the top edge of the pan, since the cake will be a taller than your pan. If you want, put a cardboard cake circle in the bottom of the pan.
NOTE: You should be using the same 8-inch pan you used for the cake. Not all 8-inch pans are exactly the same size. Your cake needs to fit in this pan.
Put the first brownie layer in the bottom of your pan.
Spread half of the hot fudge sauce on top of the brownie and add half of the crush Oreos, spreading as evenly as you can.
Top with half of the ice cream.
Add second brownie to the pan, on top of the ice cream.
Spread remaining half of the hot fudge sauce on top of the brownie and other half of the crush Oreos, spreading as evenly as you can.
Allow ice cream cake to freeze completely, 6-8 hours.
When frozen, remove from springform pan and remove parchment paper from sides.
To make whipped cream icing, put mixing bowl and whisk attachment in freezer for about 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, dissolve espresso in warm water.
Remove bowl and whisk from freezer and whip cream on high until it begins to thicken.
Add espresso extract and powdered sugar and whip on high until thick and creamy.
