Description

Cappuccino Crunch Cake combines coffee ice cream, pound cake and NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels for a rich and creamy frozen dessert! This dessert was created by Beth Royals of Richmond, VA.

Ingredients

  • 1 (10 3/4 oz.) frozen pound cake, thawed
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels
  • 4 cups (1 quart) coffee ice cream, softened
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 3/4 cups coarsely crushed malted milk balls
  • Frozen whipped topping, thawed (optional)
  • Coarsely crushed malted milk balls, (optional)

Directions

SLICE pound cake into 1/8- to 1/4-inch slices. Place half of the slices on bottom of 9-inch springform pan; press down firmly. Set remaining slices aside.

BRING cream just to a boil in medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Add milk chocolate morsels; let stand 5 minutes. Whisk until well combined and smooth. Pour half of the chocolate mixture over pound cake in pan, spreading evenly to within 1/4-inch of edge of pan. Cover; freeze for 1 1/2 hours or until chocolate is set.

COMBINE softened ice cream and whipped topping in large bowl. Fold in 1 3/4 cups crushed malted milk balls. Spread over chocolate layer in pan. Cover; freeze until ice cream is firm, about 2 hours.

TOP ice cream with remaining pound cake slices; press down firmly. Spread remaining chocolate mixture over pound cake. Cover; freeze at least 6 hours.

TO SERVE: To serve, remove sides of pan. Garnish with additional whipped dessert topping and sprinkle with crushed malted milk balls, if desired. To cut cake easily, run a knife under hot water and dry with a paper towel before making slices.

Frozen Chocolate-Covered Cappunccion Crunch Cake

What a fantastic recipe!!! I was looking for an ice cream cake recipe for my Dad for Father's Day and boy we sure weren't disappointed with this one!!! I confess I did alter the recipe a little, but it worked out good. Instead of a store bought frozen pound cake, I used my own recipe for the pound cake and baked one first. I also substituted vanilla ice cream for coffee flavored and crushed peanut butter cups. Next time I make this, I want to use a brownie layer instead of a pound cake and crushed oreos and vanilla ice cream for the ice cream layer. I've already had a request for the recipe and I've told all of my co-workers about it. Great recipe!!!! Thank you!

I was looking for something different as a dessert for Easter Sunday. Made this cake and O my gosh! My daughter stated it well. The best tasting cake she has ever had. She thinks I should bake these and sell them to some higher end restaurants in our area. Not a bad idea but a bit of work. Very elegant cake. Will definitely make again.

Easy to make. The end product is very delicious. Had many requests for the recipe. Took it to a church function and half was already eaten before it even got to the table to be served!

Great Dessert

AMAZING

This was simply amazing! I made it for a dinner party and everyone wanted seconds! Even my husband, who doesn't like coffee, loved it! I am definitely making this one again!

YUMMY! A must try...

by k. kathy , GRAND FORKS, ND on Sep. 2007

I made this for a group of 10 women. Everyone enjoyed this cake. Some said it looked like it came out of a magazine. It has a very nice eye appeal. BUT, the TASTE is what you should try. I thought that it would be rich. It isn't. The Combination of all is perfect. They all wanted a copy of the recipe. If time is an issue, go ahead and make it and freeze till ready to serve. I used the canned whipped cream and "decorated the top" then sprinkled crushed mmballs. I will keep this recipe on top of the "special cakes" pile. You can't go wrong. A must try!

Cappuccino Crunch Cake

This is a great recipe. I love malted milk balls and coffee and this is a perfect blend. Everyone at the office raved about it, even those who said they didn't normally like coffee ice cream

Heavenly & Versatile

by M. Marlene , FREEBURG, IL on Sep. 2007

My husband loves anything malted: malted shakes, a chocolate malt cheesecake that I make, and now this ice-cream cake!! Since, he does not like coffee, I made this with chocolate ice cream instead of the coffee ice cream and he thought that this was the absolute best ice cream cake ever. It was a bit time consuming, because of waiting for ice cream to thaw and refreeze; but definitely worth every minute used!!
