S'MORES ICE CREAM CAKE for Memorial Day!

I love Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, and I love S'mores. This recipe from Ben & Jerry's for S'mores Ice Cream Cake is a winner for your Memorial Day Celebration! It's an easy no bake make-ahead dessert that still reflects the first barbecue of the season, the holiday, camping out, or glamping!

Check the recipe below, and be sure and watch the video. This is a no-brainer and can be made at the drop of a hat. If you're like me, you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry and freezer! The finished cake looks and tastes amazing! I dropped the extra fudge sauce at the end, because I think the S'mores Ice Cream Cake is rich enough as is. Enjoy! Thanks, Ben & Jerry's!
