Four layers of heaven: brownie base, hot fudge center, chopped Oreos, cherry ice cream

Back in September, I posted my recipe for Brownie Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake. It was beyond delicious, giving any Dairy Queen or Carvel cake a run for its money.  This past Christmas I decided to switch the dessert table up a bit and made another ice cream cake. This one had the same base, fudge, and Oreo filling. To keep things festive, I used a whole carton of cherry chocolate ice cream on top. (I skipped a garnish, although in the future I may try some chocolate swirls on top). This cake was unbelievably delectable and very indulgent. Of course it is not something to wreck your diet with every week, but on those special occasions, it is a fabulous choice.
