Salted Caramel Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

Allow several hours when preparing this cake as each layer needs to freeze for at least an hour before proceeding with the next step.

To speed up the ice cream softening process, microwave the ice cream on 30 percent power for about 30 seconds.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Ice Cream Cake

Ingredients

Gluten-free nonstick cooking spray
1½ cups finely crushed gluten-free pretzels
2 cups gluten-free graham style crumbs or finely crushed graham crackers
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup melted butter or dairy-free buttery sticks
1 pint chocolate ice cream or dairy-free chocolate ice cream
2 pints caramel ice cream or dairy-free caramel ice cream
1 pint vanilla ice cream or dairy-free vanilla ice cream
½ cup Salted Caramel Sauce or Dairy-Free & Refined Sugar-free Butterscotch Sauce

Directions

Spray a 9-inch springform pan liberally with cooking spray.

Combine the crushed pretzels, graham style crumbs, brown sugar, and butter together in a bowl. Press the mixture firmly into the prepared pan on the bottom and up the sides. Freeze for at least 30 minutes.

Allow the chocolate ice cream to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes or until softened. Spread evenly into the pan, getting the top as smooth as possible. Freeze for at least 1 hour.

Allow the caramel ice cream to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes or until softened. Spread evenly into the pan, getting the top as smooth as possible. Freeze for at least 1 hour.

Allow the vanilla ice cream to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes or until softened. Spread evenly into the pan, getting the top as smooth as possible. Freeze for at least 1 hour.

To serve, wrap a hot kitchen towel around the outside of the springform pan and let it sit for a few seconds. Release the pan and remove. Let the cake sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Cut into serving pieces and drizzle each piece with caramel sauce.

Can be made several days ahead and stored, covered with plastic wrap, in the freezer.

Serves 8-10
