1 hr 30 min
8 hrs



1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks

3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped

1 cup sugar

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa

1/4 teaspoon salt


1 pint favorite flavor ice cream, slightly softened



1 cup sugar

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (whites only)

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil 2-inches over edge.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter and chocolate in bowl. Microwave on Medium (50% power) 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving, stirring every 15 seconds, 1-2 minutes or until butter and chocolate are melted and mixture is smooth.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine chocolate mixture and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cocoa and salt; beat at low speed until just combined.

  4. STEP 4

    Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake 15-19 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Spread ice cream in even layer over cake; freeze 2 hours or overnight until ice cream is firm.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine sugar and egg whites in top of double boiler. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with whisk, 3-5 minutes or until mixture reaches 160°F. Pour into bowl; beat at high speed 8-10 minutes or until stiff peaks form.

  7. STEP 7

    Line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Remove cake and ice cream from freezer. Lift out of pan using foil ends. Cut cake into 9 squares. Work with 2 squares at a time (keeping remaining squares frozen). Place squares onto individual 8-inch squares of parchment paper or aluminum foil on cutting board. Top each cake square with 1/3 cup meringue. Spread meringue evenly over cake to cover all edges. Lift ends of parchment paper to move squares onto prepared baking sheet; place baking sheet in freezer. Repeat with remaining cake squares. Freeze, uncovered, for at least 4 hours. Cover with aluminum foil; freeze up to 2 days.

  8. STEP 8

    Heat oven to 500°F.

  9. STEP 9

    Remove baking sheet from freezer. Remove foil; place into oven. Bake 3-4 minutes or until meringue tips are golden brown. Serve immediately.

Tip #1

- If you don't have a double boiler, combine sugar and egg whites in a metal bowl placed over boiling water in a saucepan.
