"Reese's" Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Cake

My oldest son requested "an ice cream cake like a peanut butter cup" for his birthday so this is what I came up with!!

1 batch CopyCat Ben and Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

2- 9 inch Devils Food cake rounds(my fave for ice cream cakes is HERE), completely cooled

1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
6-8 (mini) Reese's peanut butter cups

Reese's Peanut Butter cups or bars, chopped

Add a layer of wax paper to the bottom of greased 9 inch cake pans(deep ones)Return cooled cake rounds to pan. Soften the ice cream, split between the 2 cakes spreading evenly.

Cover lightly with plastic wrap and return to the freezer at least 6 hours.

Remove from freezer and pop the layers out of the pans . Stack cake side down. Placing a layer of chopped Peanut Butter Cups (or bars) between the 2 layers.
Spread the ice cream to seal the cracks.

Whip cream with sugar until soft peaks form.

Melt Reese's cups in microwave on high heat for one minute. Stir and heat until melted. Allow to stand 3 minutes.
Stir 3 TB whipping cream into melted chocolate
Fold  chocolate cream and vanilla into the rest of the cream
Frost with the whipped cream mixture working quickly to avoid melting.

Top with more chopped cups or bars and return to the freezer for at least 1 hour.

Remove from freezer 10-15 mins prior to slicing.
