This easy no-bake ice cream torte with crunchy crumb center is an impressive dessert. Don’t heat up the kitchen the next time you need a sweet treat.
You can never have too many no-bake desserts in the summertime. Anytime really. No-bake desserts come together so quickly, they are perfect for spur-of-the-moment parties.
This ice cream torte with crunchy crumb center is no exception. The crunchy crumb center makes the torte. Take one bite and you’ll see why.
One of the essentials of making no-bake desserts is a springform pan. I used an Analon 9″ springform pan and it worked like a charm.
When I un-molded the ice cream treat it was perfect. Nothing stuck to the side. It worked like a charm and is now my new favorite pan. I have so many plans for it!
When I took the plastic wrap off the top, it wasn’t very pretty. Whipped cream swirls to the rescue. I went with swirls, similar to the ones on my individual mermaid ice cream treats because they are pretty.
I used confectioners’ sugar to sweeten. Plus the Wilton disposable piping bags fitted with the star tip are just so convenient. It really takes this dessert to the next level plus, it looks pretty impressive.
