Chocolate Toffee Crunch Ice Cream Cake

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by DreamoBway

I was perusing the ice cream cake recipes here and couldn't find what I had in mind so I made this one up. At our house we use gluten free cake mix, lactose free ice cream, and sugar free Cool Whip so please feel free to adapt this recipe to meet your dietary needs. The cake ingredients included are for the gluten free mix I make. If your cake calls for more or less, eggs, water, or oil, make sure to use the necessary changes. Cook time is partly freezing time.

Loved this super easy recipe! I halved this recipe by making 1/2 box of cake mix in a round, 9" springform pan (I weighed the mix and used half, then used half the oil, water, and 2 eggs). After baking, I popped the sides off the pan, sliced the cake in half with a serrated knife, and put the sides back on. Then, I layered ice cream, toffee, and hot fudge topping in the middle before replacing the top. So quick to make and the whole family loved it. Thanks for such a simple, clear explanation!
