This is too easy and too yummy not to serve at your next warm-weather party. Who doesn’t like ice cream sandwiches, and who doesn’t like something nice and cold on a hot summer day? It’s a sure-fired hit with kids. Here’s a shout out to the creative folks over at thyhandhathprovided.com for coming up with this and sharing it.
You will need 24 ice cream sandwiches, a 16oz tub os cool whip, a jar of caramel sundae topping and your favorite chocolate candy, such as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped coarsely.
Line a 9″x13″ pan with foil, or not – it appears that it works both ways. Lay in 1/2 the ice cream sandwiches, trimming as needed. Top with 1/2 the cool whip, 1/2 the caramel topping and 1/2 the candy, and then repeat.sandwiches. Cover and freeze. That’s it- your birthday party cake is all done.
You’ll probably need to thaw the cake for 15-20 minutes before cutting and serving.
24 ice cream sandwiches from the supermarket are going to be significantly cheaper that a store bought ice cream cake, and probably not take any longer than driving to the store to pick it up. I love it when a good idea saves money too! Do enjoy this perfect party treat.
