Life’s Short, Eat the Ice Cream Cake: Mini Chocolate Ice Cream Cakes

There are two things I know for certain.

  1. No matter how long a life is, it is always too short.
  2. Melting ice cream has healing powers.

Life is short, so eat the ice cream as it melts. That’s all there is to it.

Mini Ice Cream Cakes


  • 1 pkg Dunkin Donuts Mocha Oreos (or regular Oreos), crushed
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 tub ice cream, softened, flavour of your choice (I used Chapman’s Chocolate Ripple)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream

Assembling the Ice Cream Cakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350* and line 4-inch spring form pans with parchment paper.
  2. Mix crushed Oreos and melted butter in a bowl until Oreo pieces begin to stick together. Bake for 5 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Spread generous amount of Nutella over Oreo crust to cover completely. Freeze for 1 hour.
  4. Spoon ice cream over Nutella layer to fill the remainder of the spring form pan. Freeze for 1-2 hours. Pack ice cream down in each pan to create room for ganache layer.
  5. In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt chocolate chips with whipping cream until ganache forms (about 1-2 minutes).
  6. Spoon a thin later of ganache on ice cream and sprinkle remaining Oreos on top. Freeze for 4-6 hours.
