I loved this idea and took it a step further and baked a strawberry cake 9X13 and when it cooled took thread and sliced through it. I put the 1st layer of cake down 1st then the ice cream sandwiches, then cool whip, the rest of the cake and frosted it with cool whip. Froze for a coupe of hours...Served it with sliced strawberries...my family has ALL requested this cake for their birthdays now...I added a photo because it looked so pretty...thanks for such a great idea KLONGMORE Read More

I had to improvise a lot with this recipe because the ingredients listed weren't enough. It needed more ice cream sandwiches than the recipe called for. So I ended up doing only one layer of those. I poured the chocolate fudge over that and added the entire amount of whipped cream on top of that(it seemed like just enough for one layer so I'm not sure there would have been enough if I'd done two layers like the recipe called for). I crushed up some Oreo's and a Milky Way bar and added that to the top then drizzled the whole thing with caramel. I was very frustrated making this since it wasn't going as planned but the kids liked it so I guess I'll make it again...with more ingredients on hand. Read More

This ice cream was such a hit and SO easy to make!! I love the idea of using ice sandwiches as a base and all the options you can create. Instead of using Cool Whip, which I am not a real fan of, I used name brand ice cream, let it melt for a few minutes and using my hand mixer, I blended in a Butterfinger chocolate bar into the semi-melted ice cream. I used this as my layer between the ice cream sandwiches and on top. I also used a loaf pan and lined it with plastic wrap for easy removal of the cake. Once the ice cream cake was semi-hardened, I drizzled melted chocolate on the top. My kids loved it and my husband said it was better than Baskin Robbins! This recipe is a keeper!! Thank you for sharing it with us all!! Read More

This cake was SO easy and fun to make - and eat! I tweaked the recipe just a bit and added crushed mint fudge grahams between the layers and frosted the cake with softened vanilla ice cream and whipped cream mixed together to make a yummy frosting. I cannot wait to make it again for my husband's birthday. Read More

Absolutely fantastic!! I made it for Father's Day and everyone raved over it!! I needed A LOT more than 16 ice cream sandwiches for a 9x13 inch pan though. I used Blue Bunny and I used about 30. Maybe Blue Bunny makes them small but I would recommend picking up at least 24. Thanks for the recipe!!!! Read More

So easy and scrumptious too! I used Dove dark chocolate sauce and added raspberries in the center layer. It took no time to put this together and everyone loved it! Read More

I made this for my daughters 20th b'day instead of buying those expensive cookie cakes it was a HUGE hit. I used both the Hot Fudge and Caramel between layers and crushed up butterfingers her favorite candy. I used a bigger pan bought 3 boxes of the Walmart brand ice cream sandwiches and had 3 left over. My niece decorated the top and it looked great. Absolutely delicious. Read More

I added caramel ice cream topping and pecans between layers for a complete indulgement experience. Decorated the top layer with 3 cherries. It took two boxes of ice cream sandwiches to fill the two layers.(I had two sandwiches left over) I used Blue Bell brand. It was the talk of the party. Everyone wanted the recipe. They couldn't believe it was so simple. My kids are begging me to make it but this time just for home. Read More

This was a HUGE hit at our Mother's Day get-together. I would give it 10 stars if I could! Made as written except I drizzled some caramel on top as per suggestion from other reviewers. They all said "Who needs Dairy Queen!" I will definitely make this my signature dessert. I had to use 23 ice cream sandwiches. For those who said it was too rich perhaps try another hot fudge sauce remember you are using a whole can on this! Thanks so much for the excellent recipe! UPDATE: June 02/06 - Don't share this recipe with anyone I have our local grocery store talking about it now and now I can't buy any ice cream sandwiches because they're all sold out;) Read More

Made this for my kids' birthday parties this summer. Everyone loves it and it only takes 10 minutes to put together. I made it the night before which was really convenient I think the ice cream sandwiches I bought were the standard size of most brands available and I needed 22, not 16, which is my only complaint about this recipe.
