The last few weeks have been crazy. And this heat. My gosh, every year I think to myself it is hotter than last! Or it usually is not this hot this early. But every year its soooo hot.
I haven’t baked much in the past month. I have baked for a few jobs I had and requests for birthday/graduation parties but nothing too creative in the kitchen. And just when I want to start baking again the sun will not give over. It has been so hot, wake up in the middle of the night sweating, hot. Sorry was that too much?
Well since I have been waking up so hot I needed something to cool me down!!! Why not ice cream cake? Okay maybe not for breakfast.. but I did have half a slice this morning. I was taking the photos nice and earlier in hopes the cake wouldn’t melt too much. It worked but it also worked on giving me a sugar high and crashing at work.
I whipped up this cake in all of about 10 minutes, well I let the ice cream and Cool Whip sit at room temp for about 30 minutes. Then I popped it in the freezer and let it harden over night. Each bite is filled with Bailey’s Irish Cream, I personally love Bailey’s but you can of course cut the quantity. The Heath Bars add wonderful texture and hey its english toffee, how can it not make anything betteR?! I do not know!!
This Bailey’s Heath Bar Double Chocolate Ice Cream Cake is part of the Chocolate Party hosted by Roxanas Home Baking. A party based on chocolate ! Hello count me in!! Check out Roxana’s Salted Caramel Chocolate Skillet Brownie with Caramel Ice Cream. Any recipe that involves chocolate and ice cream is a winner in my book 🙂
