Recipe: Kit-Kat & Cookie Ice-Cream Cake

Recipes and Food

This simple no-bake ice-cream cake is a great DIY cake for any occasion. This can be done over a couple of days to allow the ice-cream to freeze properly.

Ingredients:

  • 44 Kit-Kat (4 blocks of KitKat chocolate)
  • 2 one-litre containers of whatever ice-cream you want (I used Connoisseur Cookies & Cream + Weis Vanilla)
  • 1 packet of malt-o-milk biscuits (or 250 grams of any sweet biscuit)
  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • Optional: 1 packet of crispy m’n’ms

Method:

  1. Line a cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Break up blocks of Kit-Kats into individual Kit-Kats and line the sides of the cake tin with them, trying to get them vertical and close together.
  3. Smash up the biscuits in a bowl and place half of the crumbs in another bowl.
  4. In one of the bowls of biscuits, add the tablespoon of milk and mix thoroughly.
  5. Place the milk-biscuit mixture on the bottom of the cake tin, spreading it out evenly with a spatula, making sure the biscuit is spread out to the bottoms of the Kit-Kats
  6. Now place the cake tin in the freezer for at least 1hr.
  7. Let one ice-cream flavour soften for a bit out of the freezer before you take the cake tin out again.
  8. Add the ice-cream on top of the biscuit-milk layer, spreading it out evenly with a spatula. Place the cake tin back in the freezer for at least 10 min.
  9. Smash up the remaining Kit-Kat. Take out the cake tin and add the smashed Kit-Kat, spread evenly on top of the ice-cream layer. Place tin back into the freezer for at least 10 min.
  10. Let the other ice-cream flavour soften for a bit out of the freezer and then add that ice-cream layer on top of the cake. Place back in freezer for at least 10 min.
  11. Take out cake tin just before serving and add the remaining crushed biscuit and decorate with the M’n’Ms (you can write out things with these).
