Chrissy’s Famous Homemade Ice Cream Cake

homemade-ice-cream-cakeMy brother’s girlfriend Chrissy is amazing. I absolutely love her … and not only because she showed up for my brother’s birthday once with a homemade ice cream cake.

I never in my life heard of anyone making their own ice cream cake. I just knew people went to the ice cream shop to buy one or the frozen foods section of the grocery store. “It’s so easy,” she said, then quickly ran down the process. I filed this away until the other day when we were going to a friend’s for Easter.

“I’m bringing ice cream cake,” I declared … then hoped it was as easy as Chrissy told me it was.

It really was. This was so easy, so delicious, and so much cheaper than buying an ice cream cake at an ice cream shop. Seriously, I will never do that again. And since this is Chrissy’s famous recipe, I’m calling this Chrissy’s Famous Homemade Ice Cream Cake.
