CUTE HALLOWEEN CAKE IDEA
Looking for easy Halloween cake ideas? Need a simple Halloween dessert to take to a Halloween party?
This Pumpkin Patch Cake is the most requested Halloween cakes for kids and adults!
Who doesn't love a thick layer of Oreo cookie crust with ice cream and hot fudge? Sprinkle cute pumpkin candy on top and you've got the cutest Halloween cake ever.
HOW TO MAKE THIS HALLOWEEN CAKE
The great thing about this Halloween treat recipe is that it will only take you about 10 minutes to prepare!
Simply crush the Oreos and stir in melted butter to make a crust. Press that firmly onto the bottom of a 9x13 freezer-friendly dish. However, no baking is required.
Then scoop the vanilla ice cream on top, gently pressing it down to form a nice, even layer.
Drizzle your favorite hot fudge on top of the ice cream. I'm sharing our favorite hot fudge recipe below.
Finally, sprinkle the rest of the crushed Oreos on top and pop it in the freezer for at least a few hours, but preferably overnight or longer.
When you are ready to serve, add candy pumpkins and a "pumpkin patch" sign as the finishing touches.
PUMPKIN PATCH HALLOWEEN CAKE INGREDIENTS
- 1 family-size package or Oreos cookies
- ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted
- 2 quarts vanilla ice cream (or another flavor if you prefer)
- hot fudge (see recipe below)
- candy pumpkins
You'll notice that I used an 8x8 baking dish. If you don't need a full 9x13 pan, feel free to half the recipe!
