Addictive Ice Cream Cake

It's hot out. Let's make ice cream cake.....or ice cream pie! Call it what you want to. I call it ice cream cake because I make mine in a Springform-- you know, the pan you make cheesecake in? If you make it in a pie dish- it is customary that you call it ice cream pie, but SPOILER ALERT-- it tastes the same either way. And it is so darn delicious and addictive. You'll be wanting to make ice cream cake/pie til the cows come home. 
Though, I highly recommend you pull your springform that's collecting dust off the top shelf and make this delectable frozen dessert in it. Springform is lonely and needs some action. My springform hasn't gotten any since I made cheesecake two years ago around the holidays. Poor guy.
You can use any kind of ice cream you want to make this, but my fav combo is mint choco chip. I think vanilla topped with caramel sauce and some toasted nuts would be dang good too. Just make what pleases your taste buds. Here's the formula:
Made in a 9in Springform pan:
1.5 quart of good quality ice cream, in my case mint choco-chip
2 sleeves of oreos from a 15oz pack
5-6 tablespoons melted butter
3/4 cup (ish) hot fudge sauce

-In a food processor, process the oreos and melted butter together until combined and the oreos have a fine crumble. Pour the oreo crumble out into the springform and press it evenly and firmly to make the crust. Cover and freeze for a 1/2 hour- you can also leave it for longer if you need the time. 
-Pull ice cream out and let it sit for 10 minutes to soften. I like to use a large serving spoon to scoop the ice cream into the springfrom- you get nice long pieces of ice cream this way and it is easier to make it even and to spread. Fill springform with ice cream. Using back of serving spoon, spread ice cream around to even it out. 
-Top with hot, hot fudge. Cover and freeze for at least 45 minutes. Before cutting allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes, unfasten the springform and lift off. Use a sharp knife to cut into wedges. Enjoy!
See ya next week, guys! Thanks for stopping in!

Hands down my favorite dessert. I like to do it in little individual glass cups; I stick 'em in my freezer and then when it's dessert time, just pull them out a few minutes before you plan to serve them!
