S’mores Coffee and Fudge Ice Cream Cake

This has a beautiful presentation. You make it in a spring form pan. Just before serving you broil the mini marshmallows on top! It is from Southern Living a couple of years ago.  It has become one of my favorites.

16 whole graham crackers
1 cup whole or slivered almonds, toasted*
3 Tbs. sugar
1 stick butter, melted

Ice Cream:
1/2 gallon total  (4 pints)
(any combination of these:  2 pints of Starbucks Java Chip Frapaccino or Caramel Machiato plus one half of a half gallon of vanilla.  You can sometimes find coffee ice cream in a half gallon, much cheaper.  If you don’t like the coffee flavor, chocolate would work or vanilla.)  I used 2 pints Starbucks Java Chip and one half of a half gallon of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla.

Fudge Sauce:
1 Cup whipping cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
10 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
Place fudge sauce ingredients in a glass bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave one minute at a time until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool.

One 7 oz. jar marshmallow cream
2 cups miniature marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350. Finely grind graham crackers, to coarse, then add almonds and sugar in food processor. Add 1 stick melted butter, process mixture until moist crumbs form. Press graham cracker mixture onto the bottom and up sides of 9 inch spring form pan . Bake crust until edges are golden, about 12 minutes. Cool crust COMPLETELY.

Spread 2 cups softened ice cream in crust. Spoon 3/4 cup cooled fudge sauce over. Freeze until sauce is set. About 10 minutes. Repeat layering.  Ending with icecream. Leave sides of pan on. Cover and freeze cake overnight.

To serve:
Preheat broiler. Warm remaining Fudge Sauce in microwave. About 1 minute.
Place cake on a baking sheet. Spread marshmallow creme over the top. Sprinkle with a singe layer of miniature marshmallows. Leaving the sides of the pan on, broil just until marshmallows are deep brown. About 1 or 2 minutes. Watch constantly. Burns quickly.

Run a knife around the edge and remove sides of pan. Cut cake into wedges. Serve immediately with a pool of Fudge sauce on the plate.

* To toast almonds, place almonds in a skillet.  Stirring constantly over low heat until light brown.  Once they start turning brown they will burn very quickly.
To toast in the oven, place almonds on a cookie sheet and place in a 325 degree oven.  Watch closely.  Only takes a few minutes.  Stir several times while browning.  You can use sliced or slivered almonds.
