Ice Cream Torte

I first tried this dessert at my Aunt Heidi's house a few years ago. It was so good, I had to request the recipe. Every year since then, my husband has requested this for his birthday cake! It is very simple to make, keeps well in the freezer, and can be done with either store bought or homemade ice cream. The fresh, minty ice cream is a perfect counterpart to the rich fudge base of the torte. Enjoy!


20 Oreos crushed- reserve 1/4 cup
4 one-ounce squares unsweetened chocolate
1 stick butter
2 cups powdered sugar
3 eggs beaten
1/2 gallon mint chocolate chip ice cream

  • Spread crushed Oreos in bottom of a cake pan.
  • Melt chocolate squares and butter together in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently. Stir in powdered sugar and eggs, and cook, stirring frequently until it begins bubbling.
  • Pour chocolate mixture over Oreo crumbles in cake pan. Cool for 1 hour.
  • Spread ice cream over base and sprinkle reserved crumbs over top. Freeze.
