  • Open the jar of peanut butter, place into microwave oven, and microwave on low power for about 30 seconds at a time, until the peanut butter is warm and spreads easily. Spread half the peanut butter over the layer of ice cream sandwiches.

  • Mix the instant chocolate pudding mix into the whipped topping; spread half the mixture over the peanut butter layer.

  • Spread half the peanut butter cups over the whipped topping layer.

  • Remove tops of the hot fudge and caramel topping jars, and microwave on low power for about 10 seconds at a time just until the toppings are warmed and liquid. Drizzle half of the fudge and caramel sauces over the peanut butter cups.

  • Repeat the layers, starting with the remaining ice cream sandwiches, followed by remaining peanut butter, whipped topping mix, peanut butter cups, hot fudge sauce, and caramel sauce.

  • Freeze the dessert until solidly frozen, 1 to 2 hours.

Cook's Note

When I make this, I do not add the dry chocolate pudding mix to the second half of the frozen topping. This is just a preference for me because I like the appearance of the white color on top. This is also difficult to cut once it's frozen...may have something to do with the frozen peanut butter? Will need a good knife or strong metal spatula!
