*Whipped cream makes the ice cream much creamier- which I love- unfortunately it makes the picture look like it's melting. =)
If there is one thing in the world I can't say no to it is Ice Cream. My hubby knows if i'm grouchy the only thing to get me out of my funk is a trip to the closest freezer section. I'm not picky with my ice cream. I'll eat any kind- but there is definitely a soft spot in my heart for Cold Stone. Yum! I fell in love in college when my room mates and I made frequent trips to the Cold Stone across town. I'm a lover of Cake Batter Ice Cream loaded with brownie, whipped cream and caramel. Seriously can't think of anything better. So when I saw this recipe my jaw dropped and I knew I HAD to try this at home! It did not dissapoint. I'm afraid Cold Stone has lost a faithful customer. It tasted exactly the same- and for a heck of a lot less. This recipe will replace all other ice creams for you. I can promise you that.
Cake Batter Ice Cream
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
2 cups vanilla cake mix
Little Debbies brownies
Whipped Topping (spray)
Let ice cream soften so it will be easier to mix. Combine vanilla ice cream and cake mix. Mix thoroughly and return to freezer. Once solid dish ice cream into serving bowls. Top with a brownie, caramel and whipped topping. Use spoons and mix thoroughly (like they do at Cold Stone) serve immediately!
*Brownies, Caramel and whipped topping can be replaced by ANY mix ins you want. Which makes this recipe so great!
*Toppings can be mixed in at the same time as the ice cream and cake mix.
