Dulce De Leche Ice Cream Cake

READY IN: 4hrs
Recipe by Mirj2338

I invented this recipe about six months ago when requested to bring a frozen dessert to a holiday potluck. Since then I've made it about once a month, and it is always a hit. I gave one away as a hostess gift to a friend when she invited us for Friday night dinner, and got a phone call the following week to say that the leftovers were all finished and her daughter had gone into mourning over the fact. I use Rivka's Dulce De Leche Heavenly Ice Cream in the recipe, but you can use any brand or your own version of homemade ice cream.

Absolutely deeeelicious. Only one problem, not to good for the diet. But well worth making. Looks good too. Thanks Miriam
