Ice Cream Pretzel Cake

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Vseward Chef-V

If you like the sweet and salty cobination, this is sure to please. This recipe was inspired due to my husband and boys always eating pretzels with their ice-cream. It’s simple to make ahead and just pull out of the freezer when you need it.

My family loves pretzels but have never tried it with ice cream, what a treat. Easy to make. Crushed the pretzels in a food processor then just added the butter and let the processor do the work. I made it in a 9 inch square springform pan. I found that the chocolate fudge topping melted faster than the ice cream when cutting it which made the chocolate topping kinda flow over the pretel bottom which made for a pretty presentation. Love this just as written but next time I would like to try ground spanish peanuts on the top of it just for variety. This recipe goes into the binder for safe keeping, thanks V.
