Ice cream sandwich cake is made by layering ice cream sandwiches with hot fudge topping, caramel topping, and whipped topping for a decadent and crowd-pleasing dessert that will be requested for every gathering.
This is a great and easy dessert. I combined caramel and hot fudge together instead of chocolate syrup and peanut butter. It was great for a summertime dessert. Our guests and my whole family loved it!
I made a mistake and purchased hot fudge sauce rather than regular chocolate syrup. Though I don't know how it would have turned out using the syrup, the hot fudge sauce was a happy mistake. Very rich and smooth textured. I thinned the mixture a bit with some chocolate syrup because it was quite stiff after mixing with the peanut butter but it still wasn't easy to spread. I think the earlier reviewer's suggestion of putting the chocolate/peanut butter layer onto the ice cream sandwiches first, then the whipped topping would have made my assembly MUCH easier if I'd thought of it! Everyone loved this and it was so simple to make. The possibilities of other combinations of sauce and "sprinkly things" are endless and I am sure I'll make this again!
Substituted half Mrs. Richardson's Caramel Topping and Hot Fudge for peanut butter and chocolate syrup, and crushed Heath Bars for the peanuts. INCREDIBLE. The layers make for a lovely presentation when sliced. No one will believe that it was assembled with all purchased ingredients! In our house, this is called "Better Than Sex Ice Cream Cake." Wonderful summer dessert.
No one will believe this awesome dessert is just dressed-up ice cream sandwiches!
I made this for a baby shower and it was a hit. It was messy to put together but what fun is cooking without a little mess? I also like how versatile it is where you can +/- ingredients to make it your own. I ended up using 24 ice cream sandwiches as well. I also agree that you need a little bit deeper dish. This is important if you need to transport it like I did. But all in all a great recipe!
I made this for company and served it to 8 kids...they all LOVED it!!! (which is an absolute miracle because my kids are extremely picky) I have already been asked for the recipe twice!! The only thing I will do different next time is put the chocolate sauce on first and then the Cool Whip, as I found that it made a big mushy mess on top when I tried it the other way. 5 stars for this recipe!
