Smores Ice Cream Cake – Gluten Free and Vegan recipe originally posted on Pink Fortitude.
Roasting marshmallows and making S’mores is the quintessential summer evening pastime. But sometimes you need to mix things up a little bit. This S’mores ice cream cake is gluten free and vegan and is sure to please even the most traditional S’mores lovers around your campfire!
This is one of those recipes that looks extremely complicated and has a lot of steps, but is actually pretty easy. For best results you will want to make this the day before. It’s going to take a little over two hours to make, but 95% of that time is the cake hanging out in the freezer. I added all of the timing for you in the instructions below to make it easier for you.
The bottom is made from Schar’s Graham Crackers and vegan butter. Honey is the only controversial ingredient in the cookies. I’m good with honey. But if you don’t eat honey, I’m sure there are other graham type crackers that are pure vegan you can use.
The secret to the fudge layer – make enough to drizzle over the top! And eat for a snack. And hide from the family.
The vanilla “ice cream” is made with a mix-in of Dandies Marshmallows. I love Dandies!
We had company over and I served the ice cream cake with a huge caveat. If people aren’t used to my “clean” recipes, it may take a minute to get used to when you eat something without added sugar, gluten, or dairy. They literally ate the entire cake. Like scraping the plates. I was thrilled!
