Angelic Peppermint Towers

Introduction

This an easy, affordable recipe that will impress your guests. This an easy, affordable recipe that will impress your guests.
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 angel food cake mix, prepared according to directions
    1 1/2 c peppermint ice cream
    3/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Tips

By using a baking sheet instead of a bundt pan or other cake pan for the angel food cake, you'll be able to cut circles from the cake. Sandwich them with some peppermint ice cream and top with melted chocolate for a great-looking dessert.

TIP: Use sprinkles to decorate the tops of these before the chocolate hardens.

The entire recipe costs less than $3.75!


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wipe a 17 1/2" X 11 1/2" baking pan clean with a teaspoon of white vinegar. The vinegar will ensure there is no greasy film on the baking pan. (If possible use a non-stick baking pan.)

Mix angel food cake mix according to package directions. Spread onto the sheet pan; bake for 20 minutes. While the cake is baking, spread the ice cream between two sheets of waxed paper to one inch thickness. Warm the chocolate until melted, either using a double boiler or the microwave (keep a close eye on it, and stir every few seconds). Once cake has baked and cooled; cut it into 24 rounds using a biscuit cutter or cookie cutter. With the same cutter, cut the ice cream into rounds. Dip 12 rounds of the cake into the chocolate. Stack the ice cream between two layers of the cake (the top layer will be the chocolate-dipped cake). If not serving immediately, refreeze.

    I used mint chocolate chip ice cream instead. I also sprinled the chocolate topping with chopped pistachio nuts. - 12/20/09

    Great idea! Suggestion: Use the left-over bits of cake (from cutting the circles) by either mixing them in pudding or putting them in a parfait glass with fruit, pudding or yogurt, etc. You can even toast these bits lightly under the broiler or in a toaster oven, but watch carefully. - 2/14/10

    I used cool whip. It was a hit with very little calories, my guest thought they were splurging until i told the secret. I do the same with graham crackers. Yum-O! - 3/8/10

    I made this for Valentine's Day and everyone loved it. I used a heart-shaped cookie cutter for cutting the cake and ice cream. Also, I couldn't find Peppermint ice cream, so I substituted raspberry sherbet. Yummmm! I will make it again. - 2/17/10

    This looked easy and sounded delicious; I couldn't wait to try it. But it was a disaster! The cake was like rubber and wouldn't cut into circles, much less something fancier like a heart. And the ice cream IMMEDIATELY started to melt before I could even "spread" it. What a sticky mess. :( - 12/28/10

    This recipe sounds great but my problem would be having left over chocolate chips and ice cream in the house. I'd be tempted to eat the leftovers all by myself. Sadly I can not have those extra calories in my house. - 2/14/10

    Will get a cake mix when I go to the store and make these for the freezer. I will use no sugar/fat ice cream and that will cut some of the calories too. - 2/14/10

    Oh my! What a mess in my kitchen! The cake cooked and cut just fine. The chocolate, I could not get thin enough to "dip" my cut cake, so I ended up adding to the chocolate twice. And despite being ready with my rolling pin, the ice cream was melting too fast. I bailed after three towers. - 2/14/11

    I find the less I have to "play" with my food before I eat it (especially desserts!), the better. I love all the flavors here, however. :) - 2/14/11
