My husband Jack and I started A Family Feast because of our love of food. We are enthusiastic about sharing great recipes that we’ve made ourselves so that you – our wonderful readers – can enjoy them too!
So every once in a while, we try a new recipe – like this one for Nutella Crunch Ice Cream Cake – that is so delicious and gets us so excited that we rearrange our calendar to share it here as soon as possible!
Three simple ingredients make up this Nutella crunch ice cream cake – Nutella, Rice Krispies cereal, and vanilla ice cream – all combined together into one fantastic, and super easy-to-make dessert! First Rice Krispies are coated with melted Nutella and then cooled before stirring into softened vanilla ice cream. The mixture is packed into a springform pan to form a cake, topped with some more of the coated cereal mixture, and then frozen until ready to serve.
Sounds so simple (it is) – and the results are so, so, so very, very good! The chocolate-hazelnut Nutella and the creamy vanilla ice cream are perfect together, and the crispy, rice cereal lends the perfect light texture to this cake.
This Nutella crunch ice cream cake is a great dessert for feeding a crowd when you want something really delicious without having to go through too much of a fuss to prepare it.
Our Nutella crunch ice cream cake was inspired by this recipe – which we originally spotted on Pinterest. The original version, using melted chocolate and peanut butter instead of the Nutella in our recipe, was cited as an award-winning recipe from the Utica Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Festival, and I can totally understand why! In fact, if you are near Utica, Ohio – the 2013 festival is this coming weekend!
We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
