Brownie Ice Cream Cake

is the best make-ahead cake for summer celebrations. 

Bake brownie layer

Make a simple one-bowl brownie and bake it in a parchment-lined springform pan.


Add first ice cream layer

Let the first ice cream soften. Spread it out over the brownie. Freeze until nearly set, about 1 hour. 


Add hot fudge

Warm the hot fudge slightly in the microwave and pour it over the top of the ice cream. Freeze to set, about 30 minutes.


Add 2nd ice cream flavor

Let the second ice cream flavor soften. Spread it out over the hot fudge. Freeze until set, about 2 hours.


Finish cake

Take the cake out of the freezer about 25 minutes before serving. Just before serving, remove it from the springform pan, drizzle with chocolate hardshell.
