Ice cream cakes are hard and have always intimidated me. I’ve always wanted to make one, but was terrified they wouldn’t turn out, they’d melt, yada yada. When I saw Dairy Queen’s new Treatzza Pizzas, I thought to myself, “I can make that!” So I made a Copycat Dairy Queen Reese’s Treatzza Pizza!
My biggest concern was being able to get that crunchy cookie most-delicious-thing-on-earth crust that Dairy Queen has right. That stuff is my favorite. I mean, I will eat an entire slice of DQ ice cream cake, and eat everything but that chocolatey crunch, just so I can save it for last and savor every bite. I have figured out how to make it. And it’s AWESOME. Two ingredients!! That’s all you need.
- 1 package of oreos, with the creams removed
- 1 jar of hot fudge
- 1 pint of vanilla ice cream
- 1 inidividual size bag of Reese's minis unwrapped
- To start off, set your ice cream out on the counter and remove the lid, to let it start softening while you prepare the other ingredients.
- Then, you will need to remove all the creams from your oreos cookies. I set out a small bowl, and just used a butter knife to slide the creams off. Then put the cookie pieces in a separate larger bowl.
- Next, use a large wooden spoon, or a potato masher, and crush the cookies. Don't crush them too finely, because you still want that crunchy cookie texture.
- Microwave the jar of hot fudge without the lid for a minute. Stir it, then microwave for another 20 seconds.
- Dump the jar into the crushed cookies. Don't scrape the jar clean, you'll need it for drizzle later.
- Mix the cookies and hot fudge together until all the cookies are coated.
- Dump the mixture into a 9" springform pan. Press it down in the bottom of the pan, to form a solid "crust."
- Place it in the freezer for 15 minutes to allow it to set.
- Remove it from the freezer. Use a silicone spatula to spread the ice cream over the top of the cookie crust. Leave a little room on the edges without ice cream, so it looks like the Dairy Queen version.
- Sprinkle the miniature Reese's on top of the ice cream. Drizzle the remaining hot fudge on top of the entire Treatzza.
- Cover with saran wrap and place flat in the freezer for 4-6 hours, or overnight for best results.
- Cut and serve frozen.
