YES, YES, YES!!!!!!
Who doesn't want to avoid a $40 charge for a gallon of ice cream? So sure, you can do the norm and just use a couple of great flavors and I've done that often to rousing applause.
(Cue the canned applause!!!)
But this time, oh THIS TIME I SAW THIS AT SAM'S CLUB!!!!
I've always wanted to try Schwan's. I mean the very idea of an ice cream truck rolling into your driveway, delivering frosty goodness to your door on a regular schedule???? Oh My Stars, that's a dream right there!!!
So then I thought: Create This Cake.
So I did this:
Okay, moving on:
And then I tossed them into the freezer to firm up because I didn't want to smush them into the ice cream...
So I took about 1/3 of the ice cream and softened it in the bowl.... (this means I went off to keep painting the dining room windows while the ice cream sat, with the TIMER ON. Otherwise we'd have soup.)
That's another blog, another day.
Then I added the chocolate brownie chunks into it... and drizzled it with chocolate syrup because why wouldn't you????
Then I softened the next third of the gallon (I put this big bad boy into the freezer to stay firm while I worked the next layer.)
Dave has never said any such thing to me. He has not even come close to saying any such thing. He has said things like: "Why did you put your hand on the bread?"
But I digress.
Okay, now you soften the last 1/3 and spread it over the top as smoothly as humanly possible. But do not fret the homemade whipped cream frosting will cover dents and dings!!!!
Hmmm.... Beth has the final picture of the finished product and she forgot to bring it buy and doesn't have Internet in her cave-in-the-woods so I'll add that later.... In the meantime, let's just enjoy this the way it is!
