  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


Step 1:

Pre-heat oven to 350-degrees.

In a large bowl, combine your dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt). Mix until combined and set to the side.

Step 2:

In a stand mixer on low, mix the melted butter and white sugar together until pale and creamy. Butter should be slightly warmer than room temperature before using. Add the large egg and vanilla extract mixing until incorporated.

Step 3:

Slowly add in your mixed ingredients. Mix until you get a crumbly dough texture. Add in your chocolate chips and mix for 10 more seconds.

Step 5:

Remove from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes.

Step 6:

When ready to assemble, remove the OREO ®Premium Ice Cream Cake from the freezer. Slice into 6 pieces and add to a mixing bowl. Use an ice cream scoop to mix and combine into more ice cream form.
