Remember that amazingly, awesome loaf of Rocky Road Bread? Moist, cake-like quick bread filled with toasted almonds, marshmallows and chocolate chips, inspired by that iconic ice cream flavor. Come on, ice cream in bread form is kind of awesome. So what about ice cream IN bread, like ice cream as the main ingredient?

I say, "Yes!" This Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Bread Recipe is by far the quickest, easiest quick bread going. Hold onto your hats people! I'm talking about three ingredients. Yep, three. That's it.

Somehow through the genius of baking science by combining only ice cream and self-rising flour you get bread. See? I told you it was going to be quick and easy. I wasn't kidding.

I'm an equal opportunist when it comes to ice cream love, but cookies and cream happens to hold a very special place in my heart and ranks very high on my list of favorite flavors. So this flavor seemed like the perfect one for this ice cream bread.

You can use any flavor you like though, get creative! Next, I upped the cookie factor with Oreos on top for our third ingredient because what's not to love about more cookies?

This is a quick bread that takes nothing more than a quick stir with a spoon and viola, Bread!

Despite having a fair amount of ice cream in the bread, it is surprisingly not overly sweet. An extra scattering of cookies inside and on top makes this bread perfect for an afternoon treat or a weekday dessert just because. You deserve it.
