Kahlua Vodka Ice Cream Cake

Hot weather & ice cream cake go together…right? Of course they do & if you are having a dinner party…well put some Kahlua & vodka in that ice cream!!

I took some chocolate ice cream, vanilla ice cream, mixed them together, added some Kahlua & vodka to the ice cream,  made an Oreo cookie crust, layered it all & then it was done!

That is pretty much it!

*** please read through the method before starting to make this…there are a few ideas & tips toward the end.

 

Kahlua Vodka Ice Cream Cake

Ingredients

Oreo crust  recipe for the crust is from Kraft.com ( I doubled it)

36 Oreo cookies

6 tbsp melted butter

Ice Cream Filling

1   1.5 L container chocolate ice cream

1   1.5 L container of vanilla ice cream

4 tbsp Kahlua

2 Tbsp coffee vodka or regular vodka would work too!!

 

Method

you need 1 9 inch springform pan

Oreo Crust

  1. Put the Oreo cookies into the bowl of a food processor & process until they are fine crumbs
  2. Add the melted butter & process some more to mix it well *** mine was not mixed well so I put the crumbs into a bowl & mixed it together by hand to make sure that the butter was mixed with the crumbs really well
  3. Set this aside

Ice Cream filling

  1. Let the chocolate & vanilla ice creams get soft by taking them out of the freezer & letting them sit for a while on the counter
  2. ***WHILE THE ICE CREAM IS SOFTENING MAKE THE CRUST. PUT 1 1/2 CUPS OF THE OREO COOKIE CRUMB MIX EVENLY INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE SPRINGFORM PAN & PRESS FIRMLY WITH YOUR HANDS TO FORM THE CRUST. SET ASIDEWhen able, put both the ice creams into a large bowl & mix together until well combined
  3. When the ice cream has softened, put pot flavours into a large bowl & mix them together until well combined
  4. Add the Kahlua & vodka & mix well
  5. Put 3 cups or half of the ice cream mixture into the springform pan on top of the crust. *** put the ice cream here & there over the crust so it is easier to spread…Using a small off-set spatial or back of a spoon, gently spread the ice cream evenly over the crust
  6. Put this into the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up so you can put the next layers on. *** put the bowl with the left-over ice cream in the fridge so it gets firm & not watery
  7. After the 15 minutes, take the ice cream in the springform out of the freezer & the ice cream from the fridge
  8. Take another 1-1 1/2 cups of the Oreo cookie crust crumbs 7 sprinkle evenly over the ice-cream that was in the freezer
  9. Next, put the rest of the ice-cream that was in the fridge over top of the crumbs. ***Again, put the ice cream  here & there over the cookie crumbs so that it is easy to spread….Using an off-set spatula or back of a spoon, gently spread the ice cream evenly over the crumbs
  10. Now sprinkle the rest of the crumbs over the final layer of ice cream!
  11. Put into the freezer overnight to firm up… If you want to make it the same day as you are going to serve it, I do not know how long it will take for the ice cream to get frozen,,,,several hours I would think
  12. When you are ready to serve it, use a dinner knife that has been dipped in hot water, dry it off, & run the knife around the outer edge of the cake… between the cake & the springform rim. Work quickly so your cake does not start to melt
  13. Put the cake onto a serving dish with a bit of a lip so if it starts to melt it will not run all over the place & make a big mess!!! Also, since the bottom of the springform pan is under the cake, it will slip around on the serving dish…you could try to put a wet piece of paper towel that has been folded up, under the springform base & maybe that will help stop some slipping…but I am not sure about that! I always leave my cake on the base of the springform because I don’t want it to break but you could try to slip it off the base. *** if you put the base in the ring upside down, without the  lip..it will be easy to slip off !

You can serve this with the Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

Enjoy!

  1. After you take the ring off the cake, slip a long spatula under the cake bottom and remove cake to the serving platter. I do this ahead if when I want to serve and put the cake back in the freezer. You can even do it way ahead of time and wrap the cake in plastic and foil.
