Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake


  • 12 ounces Cappello’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, crumbled into small pieces 

  • 1.5 quarts vanilla ice cream 

  • 1.5 quarts chocolate ice cream 

  • For the Chocolate Fudge:

  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped 

  • 3 tablespoons honey 

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt 

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream, room temperature 

  • For the Whipped Cream:

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, cold 

  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar 

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 

  • 2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles, for finishing 


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9-inch springform cake pan with saran wrap. Set aside. 

  • Remove vanilla ice cream from the freezer. Let sit for 15 minutes. 

  • While ice cream is sitting, bake the cookie dough: 

  • Place cookie dough crumbles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the oven and bake until edges are golden, 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. 

  • Evenly spread vanilla ice cream along the base of the cake pan. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.

  • While ice cream is freezing, make the fudge: 

  • To a medium heat-proof mixing bowl, add chocolate, honey, vanilla, and salt. Set aside. 

  • To a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, add whipping cream. Bring just to a simmer then pour over the chocolate. Let sit, undisturbed for 3 minutes. Then whisk until smooth and glossy. Let sit until fudge reaches room temperature, then pour it over the vanilla ice cream layer. 

  • Add ¾ of the cookie crumbles on top of the fudge layer. Place in the freezer until firm, 1-2 hours. 

  • Let the chocolate ice cream sit out for 15 minutes. Evenly spread over the fudge layer and place back into the freezer until firm, about 1 hour. 

  • When ready to serve, make the whipped cream: 

  • To a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, add all ingredients. Whip on high until stiff peaks form then use a spatula to frost the cake. Decorate the top with the remaining baked cookie dough pieces.
