Ice Cream Tunnel Cake
1 regular size package chocolate cake mix
1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
1/2 cup mint chocolate chips
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
~Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean). Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Cool completely.
~Cut a 1-inch slice off the top of the cake; set aside.
~To make a tunnel, carefully hollow out bottom, leaving a one-inch shell (save removed cake for another use). Cover and place cake shell in freezer for one hour.
~Fill tunnel with ice cream; replace cake top. Cover and freeze for at least six hours.
~Just before serving, in a microwave, melt chips and corn syrup; stir until smooth. Stir in cream and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over cake.
