|Brownie Oreo Ice Cream Cake|
|HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE BRO :)|
It was super simple to make and I prepared most of it the night before -I didn't want to wake up way too early to get it done. I baked the brownie base layer the night before using Martha Stewart’s trusty double-chocolate brownie recipe and kept it out on the counter overnight ready for assembly. I also mixed together the Oreo ice cream (just two pints of vanilla ice cream and almost a full three packets of Oreos that I crushed in a ziploc bag) and popped it back into the freezer for the following morning. I also saved a handful of the crushed oreos so that I could use it to top the cake! I didn’t want to pile on and freeze the ice cream layer overnight because I was concerned that the brownies would harden and become rock solid the morning after.

The following morning I got up extra early to assemble the cake… I took the Oreo ice cream mix out to soften up and (after my cup of coffee) I smothered it on top of the brownie layer and let it set in the freezer again for a bit longer than half an hour so that it would harden just a tad bit. Right before serving, I topped it off with the remaining crushed Oreos, lit up fifteen candles and wished Michael a happy fifteenth birthday. He's already fifteen now... How time flies!
