A genius shortcut to one delicious cake.
Making ice cream cakes can seem daunting, but it’s easy to do. This Ice Cream Sandwich Cake. It uses ice cream sandwiches as its base. This is a clever shortcut that makes it celebratory and takes only ten minutes to put together. It took me ten minutes to make a dreamy, dreamy, chocolatey, ice-cream-layered dessert. Here’s how to do it:
10m prep time
24 vanilla ice cream sandwiches
16 oz Cool Whip, thawed
1 (12 oz) jar hot fudge topping, warmed
1 (12 oz) jar caramel topping, warmed
1/2 cup chopped peanuts or other nuts, optional
Magic Shell chocolate topping, optional
Arrange 12 of the ice cream sandwiches in a layer in the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. You will need to cut the last sandwich in half in order to fit it in.
Let ice cream sandwiches soften for a few minutes, then press down on them gently with a spoon.
Spread one third of the whipped topping over the ice cream sandwiches.
Drizzle with half of the hot fudge topping and half of the caramel topping.
Repeat another layer of ice cream sandwiches, followed by a third of the Cool Whip, and another layer of the hot fudge topping and caramel topping.
Spread a final layer of Cool Whip over the top, then top with chopped peanuts and magic shell topping.
Cover dish with aluminum foil and freeze at least 30 minutes and up to 1 week. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
