Hershey Bar Cake and Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

We celebrated my mom's birthday this weekend.  Chocolate cake and homemade ice cream are one of the best ways to speak love to her.  And so we sacrificed to make her feel loved.  I mean, we wouldn't want her to eat alone. 
I made her favorite cake and it turned out to be a crowd pleaser, so I'll share the love with you!

Hershey Bar Cake

1 Devil's Food cake mix
1 cup milk
1 cup oil
3 eggs
1 small pkg instant vanilla pudding

Preheat oven to 350. Mix cake ingredients.  Pour into three greased and floured cake pans. Bake according to the box directions.  Cool completely.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
16 oz Cool Whip
5 Hershey bars

In a mixer, combine the sugar and cream cheese until well mixed.  Gently mix in Cool Whip.  Chop 4 chocolate bars and add to frosting. Frost between layers, top and sides.  Using a vegetable peeler, shave the 5th chocolate bar to garnish the top.
Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

Homemade Ice Cream

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream or half and half
whole milk

Mix the first four ingredients and pour in ice cream maker canister. Add your favorite ingredients, such as crushed cookies or fruit.  Add whole milk until it reaches the "fill line."  Stir gently.  Plug it in and listen to the sound of summer!

For vanilla, scrape the insides of two vanilla beans or add 2 Tbs of vanilla extract.

My momma is happiest when her pool is full of family and friends...
