1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream, softened

Prepare cake according to package directions; bake in a 9×13 inch baking dish and cool completely.
Use ice cream that comes in a rectangular carton. Remove the carton and, using a piece of string or dental floss, cut the ice cream in half lengthwise (long side to long side) and place the two layers side by side on a piece of waxed paper.
Place the cooled cake over the ice cream. Trim the cake and ice cream so that the edges match.
Place a board or serving platter over the cake, hold onto the waxed paper and board, and flip the ice cream cake over. Remove the waxed paper and smooth out the seam between the ice cream slabs.
Cover with waxed paper and freeze until very firm. Decorate as desired.

1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons egg whites
1 teaspoon 2% reduced-fat milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cooking spray
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/2 cup finely chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts, divided
2 2/3 cups vanilla low-fat ice cream


1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring well. Stir in egg whites, milk, and vanilla.
3. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Using your finger, draw 4 (5-inch) circles on baking sheet. Spoon 1 tablespoon batter onto each circle, spreading to edges of circle using the back of a spoon. Bake at 400° for 6 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Loosen edges with a spatula; remove from baking sheet. Working quickly, gently drape each taco over suspended wooden spoons, gently shaping into a shell; cool completely. (Shells are delicate and should be handled carefully when shaped.) Repeat procedure to form a total of 8 shells.
4. Combine chocolate chips and oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring after 30 seconds; stir until smooth. Gently spread about 1 teaspoon chocolate mixture on the top third of the outside of both sides of cooled shells, and sprinkle with about 1 teaspoon chopped peanuts. Spoon 1/3 cup ice cream into each shell. Drizzle remaining chocolate mixture evenly over ice cream; sprinkle evenly with remaining peanuts. Freeze for at least 30 minutes before serving.
