To make this ice cream cake recipe you will want to buy a quality Rocky Road Ice Cream, choose one that you like. This easy dessert recipe uses a brownie mix to save time, and you want to buy a quality one as well. Ghirardelli is a good choice unless you prefer something else. Prepare and bake the brownie mix in an 8 or 9-inch spring form pan. This recipe calls for Cool Whip or a homemade whipped cream. The Best Ever Fudge Sauce is on the site. And you can top the recipe with peanuts and marshmallows which are optional. You'll make the brownie mix according to package directions, and then let cool. You can put them in the fridge to speed things up. When the brownies are cool, you can spread the ice cream over the chilled brownies. You want to make sure and smooth it out. A good tip is to let the ice cream sit on the counter for 5 to 10 minutes to let it soften just a bit.

Making your whipped cream is not as difficult as some people think, it is very easy and much better. To make you will need some heavy whipping cream and some vanilla extract. Make sure to leave the cream in the refrigerator right up until you're ready to whip it. When ready, measure the cream into the bowl of a stand mixer or a metal bowl, then add the vanilla and other flavorings. Start by whipping and increase the mixer speed to medium. For the first several minutes, the cream will be very frothy and bubbly. Then after about 4 to 5 minutes you will start to see trails in the cream that don't immediately dissolve after the whisk moves this is a good thing. Keep whipping, and after about 6 to 7 minutes soft peaks should form. After about 7 to 8 minutes, you will watch as firm peaks form, and become stiffer and stiffer. The cream will start to take on volume, and if you take the whisk out of the cream, the peaks in the whipped cream will hold firmly but have slightly softened tips. This is usually the best stage to stop whipping and serve the cream.
