A delicious triple layer Peppermint Christmas Ice-Cream Cake! Chocolate, vanilla and mint flavoured ice-cream layers packed full of cookies, chocolates and more!
Do you know what screams Christmas???? THIS PEPPERMINT CHRISTMAS ICE-CREAM CAKE!!!!! Heck yes!
Think 3 delicious layers…
- Chocolate ice-cream mixed with crushed chocolate biscuits and chocolate (talk about a chocoholics delight!!)
- Mint ice-cream filled with chopped Mint Patties and Mint Aero bars
- Vanilla ice-cream sprinkled with crushed Peppermint Crisp bars
How is that for the perfect Christmas dessert!!??
Annnnnddd… if that’s not enough, this Peppermint Christmas Ice-Cream Cake just wouldn’t be complete without drizzling it with Ice Magic and decorating it with ALL the best peppermint flavoured chocolate and silver edible baubles. Gosh it’s desserts like this that make me wish Christmas came more than once a year (I’m suggesting maybe once a month?? Just putting the idea out there!).
If you’ve been visiting my website for a while, you might remember the Triple Layer Christmas Pudding I made a few years ago with neapolitan ice-cream, Clinkers, honeycomb etc?? Well this is based on the exact same idea… but in a mint version!
I’ve got lots of tips for making this Peppermint Christmas Ice-Cream Cake listed in the recipe notes below – so make sure you check them out. But it really is the simplest thing ever! PLUS! You can be guaranteed that this ice-cream cake will be the first thing to disappear from the Christmas dessert table (especially if it’s a hot day AND especially if there’s kids around!).
So tell me… what will you be making for Christmas dessert this year!? Are you a chocolate-mint loving gal (or guy!) too!? xx

Christmas Peppermint Ice-Cream Cake
A delicious triple layer Christmas peppermint ice-cream cake! Chocolate, vanilla and mint flavoured ice-cream layers packed full of cookies, chocolates and more!
- 750 g vanilla ice-cream
- 2 55g peppermint crisp bars, crushed
- 750 g mint ice-cream
- chopped mint flavoured chocolates (I used 1 X Mint Pattie and 1 X Mint Aero bar)
- 750 g chocolate ice-cream
- 100 g Oreo biscuits (or any chocolate biscuit), chopped
- 1 55g Flake chocolate bar, crumbled
- extra mint flavoured chocolates to decorate (see notes)
- 1 bottle Ice-Magic
Line an 8 cup capacity bowl with two sheets of cling wrap, allowing the sides to overhang.
Take the vanilla ice-cream out of the freezer and allow it to soften (but not melt). Add the crushed peppermint crisp bars and stir to combine.
Spoon into the bottom of the cling wrap lined bowl, smooth the top and place into the freezer for 30 minutes or until set.
Take the mint ice-cream out of the freezer and allow to soften. Mix in the chopped mint chocolates and spread over the top of the vanilla ice-cream layer. Place back into the freezer for 30 minutes.
Take the chocolate ice-cream out of the freezer, mix in the chopped Oreos (or chocolate biscuits) and the chopped Flake bar and spread over the top of the mint layer.
Place it back into the freezer and cover the top with cling wrap. Leave overnight.
When you're ready to serve the Christmas peppermint ice-cream pudding, take it out of the freezer, remove the cling wrap and turn onto a plate (you might need to wipe off any little ice-cream smears!).
Squeeze the Ice Magic all over the top of the pudding, allowing it to drip down the sides (you won't need the entire bottle).
Decorate with extra mint flavoured chocolates (see note).
Pop back into the freezer for 20 minutes to firm up.
You can use any mint flavoured chocolates you like in this recipe. I used the following:
- Mint Patties
- Peppermint Crisp Bars
- Mint Aero Bars
- Darrel Lea Mint Chocolate Balls (for decorating)
- Cadbury Peppermint Chocolate (for decorating)
These are all available from supermarkets in Australia. If you're outside of Australia, simply use any mint flavoured chocolates you have available.
