Cookie dough s'more ice cream cake
Failed recipes?  That is the question that I receive a lot from family and friends.  I’d say 80% of the time I succeed first time on the recipe and then there are others that fail miserably.  I either try to correct those recipes or they get tossed to the side because I get frustrated on the perfection part of the dish. A couple weeks ago we had family in town and I tried to create a “no bake iced animal cracker dessert.”  It’s one of those recipes that you make everything and then its a waiting game to see if it came out right.  Well after several hours of waiting it came out bland as my brother in law politely put it.  I pondered on the idea of trying to remake the dish but I pushed it out of my mind and moved onwards to this cookie dough s’more ice cream cake.  Boy is that a mouthful of words.

I’d like to say that this was a hole in one type of recipe.  It wasn’t a failure the first go around but you definitely don’t want to mix soft ice cream and hot fudge because nothing wants to settle after those two touch.  The flavors turned out as I had hoped, but the pictures would have been awful.  The first dessert went in the trash and I immediately started to prep for the second go at it before I changed my mind about this dessert.

Voila!

This Cookie dough s’more ice cream cake is probably the best dessert I’ve made in quite a while.  I think you can see why from the pictures because it is literally loaded with GOODNESS. The cookie dough in this recipe is eggless so eat away!
