Nutty Coconut Ice Cream Bars



Ingredients: Makes eighteen 2”x 3” ice cream bars 

  • 1 fresh-packed quart of Baskin-Robbins Nutty Coconut ice cream 
  • For the crust: 
    • 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, melted 
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
    • ½ cup sugar 
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
    • ½ tsp. salt 
  • For the fudge: 
    • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips 
    • ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk 


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  1. Combine melted butter, sugar, salt, vanilla extract and flour in a bowl until just combined.  
  1. Transfer dough to a 9” x 13” pan coated in oil or baking spray. Press dough into a ¼ inch layer along the bottom of the pan, ensuring the dough layer is flat and even. 
  1. Prick crust with a fork and bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown with dark brown around the edges. Remove the pan from the oven and allow crust to come to room temperature for about 30-45 minutes.  
  1. When the crust is cool, combine chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a medium bowl; microwave in 10 second intervals, stirring frequently, until smooth. Spread fudge on top of cooled crust and return to freezer until solid and sticky to the touch, about 20 minutes. 
  1. Allow 12 medium (2.5 oz.) scoops of Nutty Coconut ice cream to soften at room temperature for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes until ice cream has a soft, spreadable texture.  
  1. Using a small spatula, add softened ice cream on top of your fudge layer. Smooth the ice cream into a single, even layer in the pan. Return to your freezer and allow ice cream bars to harden overnight. 
  1. Cut your ice cream bars into 2”x 3” sections and serve immediately. If pre-cutting for an event, return ice cream bars to freezer and allow to harden for 2 hours prior to eating. Enjoy! 


Nutty Coconut Melted Ice Cream Cake



Ingredients: Makes one standard Bundt cake or one 9” x 13” sheet cake

  • 1 fresh-packed quart of Baskin-Robbins Nutty Coconut ice cream 
  • 1 pre-packaged mix for yellow or white cake 
  • 2-3 eggs 
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar 
  • 2 tbsp. whole milk 
  • Sweetened coconut flakes (for garnish) 
  • Crushed pecans, walnuts or almonds (for garnish)  


  1. Scoop 5-6 medium scoops of Nutty Coconut ice cream into a microwave safe bowl. 
  1. At 20 second intervals, melt the ice cream in the microwave until barely fluid, stirring the ice cream well between intervals. 
  1. Starting with a white or yellow cake mix of your choice, prepare cake mix as directed, substituting liquid ingredients (water & oil) for 2 cups (450 ml.) of melted Nutty Coconut ice cream. 
  1. Coat either a standard Bundt pan or 9” x 13” pan with cooking spray or butter. Add batter to pan and cook for recommended time on packaging, until the cake springs back when touched or an inserted toothpick comes out clean. 
  1. Remove the pan and place on a wire baking rack, allowing cake to cool slightly at room temperature. 
  1. For the icing, whisk together 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar with 2 tbsp. of whole milk.  
  1. Drizzle slightly warm cake with icing; garnish with sweetened coconut flakes and chopped pecans, walnuts or almonds.  
  1. Serve slices of cake warm with a scoop of Nutty Coconut ice cream on top!
