choc-mint ice-cream sandwich cake

  • 2 litres vanilla ice-cream 
  • ½ teaspoon mint essence
  • green food colouring
  • 18 chocolate and vanilla ice-cream sandwiches
  • ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips, for sprinkling
  1. Place the ice-cream, mint essence and a few drops of food colouring in an electric mixer and beat for 1–2 minutes or until softened. Place the ice-cream in a metal container and freeze for 1 hour or until firm but spreadable. 
  2. Working quickly, place 6 ice-cream sandwiches together on a serving dish. This will make the base layer of the cake. Spread evenly with 1½ cups of the mint ice-cream and repeat with remaining ice-cream sandwiches and ice-cream, finishing with a layer of ice-cream. 
  3. Return to the freezer and freeze for 2–3 hours or until set. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and serve immediately. Serves 8–10.
