I love ice cream, in fact, my whole family loves ice cream. Who doesn't! My two year old loves it so much that after one helping he says "More, please!" Anyhow, I have made this a couple of time for birthdays, etc. You can vary the ice cream flavors, sauces, and cookies, according to your cravings! Enjoy!
Crush half the cookies (about 20) to make crumbs. Combine crumbs with melted margarine and press into the bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan or pie plate. Stand remaining cookies around edge of pan. Spread 3/4 cup fudge topping over crust. Freeze 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, soften 1 quart of ice cream in microwave or on counter top. After crust has chilled, spread softened ice cream over fudge layer. Freeze 30 minutes. Scoop remaining quart of ice cream into balls and arrange over spread ice cream layer. Freeze until firm, 4 hours or overnight.
To serve, garnish with remainder of fudge topping, whipped cream and cherries

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Using foil, lift dessert out of dish; gently peel off foil. Cut into squares. Garnish with berries and drizzle with chocolate.

I use those new silicone (rubber like) round baking pans. I make 3 thin layers of whatever flavored box cake using same pan. Clean well between baking. Cool completely.
Let a half gallon of ice cream soften in fridge or on counter to very soft. Pour half into cleaned out silicon pan and level with spatula. Freeze for several hours. Pop out and refreeze while doing the rest of the ice cream.
I set my cake base on a marble tray(stays colder- metal would be good to, but I am sure anything would work) then ice cream hard layer, cake, ice cream, etc. straighten up edges and cover with plastic wrap (to avoid freezer smells) and freeze for an hour or so. I use 3 containers of frosting(betty crocker). Frost until icecream starts melting-refreeze and then smooth out frosting flaws! I have a lot of "in and out" of the freezer during the frosting! But looks fantastic in the end.
Our favorite is Choc. cake with choc mint ice cream with milk choc frosting. YUMMMMM! Decorate top as you like! have also done oreos and then poured the melt and pour canister frosting on top! We call it TOXIC CHOCOLATE around here! ; ) Those silicon pans rock, you just have to pop the ice cream out with no tricks! I have the muffin, loaf and cookie sheet too! They are awesome, sold at Walmart.
