You will need:
2 Quarts of ice cream (1 vanilla, 1 chocolate)
1 Package of Oreo cookies
1 Box cake mix or see my favorite chocolate cake recipe down below.
1 Large tub of Cool Whip
Few drops of food safe Peppermint essential oil
Take a 9 inch spring form round pan (typically used for cheesecake) and add your vanilla ice cream smooth it out evenly in the pan then add your chocolate ice cream and smooth it out as well, then place in the freezer till you are ready for it.
Bake your cake in 2 – 9inch round cake pans according to the directions on the box.
Once your cakes have cooled you can now assemble your ice cream cake. I like to cut the tops off of my cake to make them flat. I layer mine: Cake, Ice Cream, Cake.
