It’s hard to believe that by the time you are reading this post, we will have dropped Allison off at college, making us empty nesters.  Those words are REALLY hard to swallow.  I can’t even phathom how that is possible.  Heather went to cosmetology school after high school, and didn’t move out for a while, then she came back home, then moved out again and  lived just minutes away from us, until this spring when she bought her own house at 26 years old!!  She is only 15 minutes away, and comes over quite a bit.

Allison, will be 2 HOURS away.  Not only do I not want to think about her making that drive home and back on the occasional weekend…….but what am I going to do with out her here?  I’m one of those lucky Moms who’s super close with her young adult daughters.  We shop, laugh, hangout, take pictures, watch TV together……and yes occasionally fight.  But I wouldn’t change a thing about our relationships, so imagining one link of our special little triangle missing…… it’s going to be really hard to deal with.

Ice cream kind of fixes everything right?  So Allison wanted to make sure we made one last fabulous treat before she left.  She was quick to remind me of a recipe I’ve been running thru my head for a few months now.    Last week she said “I’m not leaving until you make that Biscoff Crunch Ice Cream Cake you’ve been telling me about!”

I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you………..I secretly thought about NOT making it 😉  after all, that would mean she wouldn’t leave right?

Let’s just say it was well worth the wait, and I’m so glad I had her here to help me.  When you are working with ice cream, it’s always nice to have an extra set of hands

So let’s talk about this Biscoff ice cream cake………. 

Rice ceral coated in Biscoff spread

So if you are a fan of Biscoff cookies or spread, you are going to love this cake! (full recipe at the end of this post)   I started off by coating rice cereal in Biscoff spread, and then put it in the freezer to set.

Biscoff cookie crust

Next, I made a Biscoff cookie crust.  You will need 2 packages of cookies (maybe 3 if you snack on some like we did 😉 ) – Mix 2 cups of the cookie crumbs with melted butter, pat out in a spring form pan and bake for about 10 minutes to set the crust. Then let it cool, and put it in the freezer to chill.  (set aside the other 2 cups of crushed cookies and butter for another layer in the cake)

Once the crust and rice cereal are cooled and cold, I took one gallon of vanilla ice cream out the the freezer and let it sit for about 10 minutes to soften.  Then I put the ice cream and 8 ounces of cool whip in a very large cold bowl and mixed until creamy, making sure not to let the mixture get too soupy, (this would increase the risk of the ice cream getting icy once you re-freeze it).

I broke up the coated cereal and set about 2 cups aside, for topping the cake.  Then gently stirred the rest of the Biscoff covered rice cereal into the ice cream mixture.

To assemble the Biscoff ice cream cake, I just layered:  1/2 of the ice cream mix over the cold crust, drizzled with chocolate syrup, placed remaining 2 cups of cookie crust over syrup then add remaining ice cream, and topped with reserved cereal and chocolate syrup.  Cover in plastic wrap and place back in the freezer immediately, for at least 6-8 hours, or overnight for best results.

Remove sides of springform pan and transfer to refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving.

Allison and I shared the first piece!  She sent a picture to her roommate who promptly told her she is going to have to come home with her if her mom made stuff like this! lol  Luckily I have a little cake left over to drown my sorrows this week.

Biscoff Ice Cream Cake

This easy ice cream cake is made with Biscoff cookies, vanilla ice cream, Biscoff Spread, and rice cereal.

Ingredients

  • 1 (14 ounce) jar Biscoff spread
  • 6 cups rice cereal
  • 2 (8.8 ounce) packages Biscoff cookies, crushed into fine crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 gallon vanilla ice cream
  • 1 (8 ounce) Cool Whip
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Syrup (reserve some for topping if desired)

Instructions

  1. Place large mixing bowl in freezer to chill.
  2. Using a large saucepan over low heat, combine Biscoff spread and rice cereal. Mix well until the cereal is completely coated. Remove from heat. Turn onto a baking sheet lined with waxed or parchment paper. Spread into an even layer. Let sit for 2 hours or place in freezer for about 1 hour to firm. Break into small pieces. Set aside 2 cups of cereal mix for topping.
  3. For Crust: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl combine the cookie crumbs and butter; mix until well blended. Set aside half (2 cups) of crust aside. Press remaining crust into a 9-10 inch springform pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 7 minutes. Cool, then place in freezer until chilled.
  4. Once cereal and crust are chilled, remove ice cream from freezer to soften (about 10 minutes on the counter). Removed large bowl from freezer and fold together the ice cream and cool whip until smooth and creamy, but not soupy. Fold in all but reserved portion of cereal mixture.
  5. Pour half of the ice cream mixture over prepared crust. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the first layer of ice cream. Next add remaining cookie crust and pat down. Spread the rest of the ice cream over the top of the chocolate layer and garnish with remaining cereal and chocolate syrup.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and place pan back in the freezer immediately, for at least 6-8 hours, or overnight for best results.

Notes

Look for Biscoff Spread near the peanut butter at your grocer. You can find the cookies in the cookie aisle or you can find them online on Amazon. If you can't find Biscoff Spread and have a Trader Joe's near you, you can use their Cookie Butter.

  10. This is incredible! My kind of dessert!

  11. oh my goodness, I’m crying! My baby is going to kindergarten, and I can already see my oldest leaving in just 5 years. Say it isn’t SOOOO!! Why does life torture us like that? So nice that your older daughter lives close, and 2 hours??? I went 25 hours away from my mom when I went to college–I had no idea what I was doing to her then!!

  12. This ice cream cake looks incredible! I can only imagine how awesome the texture is! I’m pregnant with my first baby, and I already dread the day I’m going to have to drop him off at college and drive away! How crazy is that?! Self soothing with this ice cream cake definitely seems the way to go! 🙂

  13. I can so relate because next year, I will be in the same exact boat as you except my daughter is going to college 6 hours away…..sob!! I tried to convince her to go to her sister’s school which is an hour away, but they did not a strong degree in her major…sigh 🙁 So I am taking advantage of this last year with her. We moved in our oldest daughter this past weekend and she is going starting nursing school in a week…where did the time go. I need to make this dessert to comfort me too. I’m not ready to be an empty nester. My daughters and I do everything together. You are going to be my inspiration. Thanks for the yummy dessert recipe!!

  14. Oh my… I can’t even imagine the day that my four have all moved out! It makes me so sad just thinking about it! The time really does go too fast.

  19. Oh my goodness this looks great. Can’t wait to see you speak in October too 🙂 Looking forward to gleaning from your awesomeness lady!

  20. This ice cream cake sounds INCREDIBLE! Oh my gosh!

    I’ve been thinking about you a lot! I think you might need a trip to Texas after all of this college stress! 😉

  21. Are you kidding!?! This cake looks unreal, and so divine! Yum. Thanks for linking this up to The Creative Collection Link Party!

  22. This dessert looks delightful, but I have a question. How do you take the sides off the springform pan without breaking the latch? I have ruined three springform pans with ice cream cakes and I am VERY hesitant to try it again. But, if there is a secret, I would be willing to try!

    • I’m not sure what you mean about breaking the latch, I just unlatch/open the latch – I’ve never broke it. I’m afraid I’m not sure what you are doing to break it. when you flip open the latch, it make the ring larger, so it comes away from the cake and you lift it up and over to remove

  23. That is a pretty amazing ice cream cake! Beautiful and it looks delicious!

  32. Cheryl, just a quick clarification– “one gallon” ice cream would fill 3 spring forms — did you mean a 1/2 gallon (size most commonly found in the grocery store)? I am super excited to try this recipe!

    • nope I used most all of the big round gallon bucket – when it softens and you stir it all up, it kind of condenses – you could use a little less than a gallon, but definitely more than a 1/2 gallon. We had a small amount that wouldn’t fit in the pan, that I put in another container in the freezer. — That being said, I bet you could still make it with 1/2 gallon, it just would’t be as tall as the one i made. Keep me posted on what you do! 😉

    • I was also really skeptical about all of that ice cream fitting, but it did! Well, mostly. It’s definitely overflowing and I actually didn’t end up using all of the cookie crust, but overall it fits. It’s in the freezer now – can’t wait to eat it!

  33. I made this for my sister’s baby shower and it is the most amazing thing I’ve ever made. I am making it again tonight for a friend’s birthday. Everyone loved the cake. It is beautiful and delicious

  35. I’m addicted to Biscoff, so this recipe is what I need in my life! The diet starts tomorrow, right?! 😀

  36. Hi! I wanted to make this for my niece’s birthday(she looooves ice cream) but I’m not sure if we have Cool Whip in our shops…could I use whipping cream as a substitute?

  37. I made the recipe and the taste is awesome, the coated cereal is not crunchy but instead soggy.
    I put the spread and the cereal in a low heat saucepan for a couple of minutes and did what the recipe called for, so how do i make it crunchy?
