Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
May is super crazy for me!! We have 10 days left of school and I have a fifth grader that is a little too excited to head to middle school. We have field day, fifth grade day, awards day, middle school open house, teacher appreciation week and the list goes on. So what I'm saying is, I'm a busy woman these days so please forgive my lack of posts and please forgive the lame picture I have for this amazing ice cream cake that I am about to tell you about. Did I mention it is amazing? And easy?
The kids actually made this for Hubby's birthday. He is not a big sweets fan but he loves an ice cream cake. We decided to try and make one instead of buying one for his last birthday. This was a huge success and this will be our go to birthday cake in this house from now on.
We were lucky ALL those candles didn't melt the cake - and I am lucky Hubby doesn't read my posts too often...but just in case, I am not going to tell you how many candles we had.
But seriously,this is a great recipe for the kids to make alone or with you. So easy and so good!
Maybe I can drop some hints and get them to make it for me for Mothers Day...hmmmm
recipe from about.com
20 ice cream sandwiches (any flavors)
1 (12 oz) jar of hot fudge, heated and melted
1 (8 oz) container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
Unwrap the sandwiches and lay them down in a layer in a 13 x 9 pan (you will need to cut one sandwich in half for the bottom and top shorter ends of the pan.)
Pour a layer of hot fudge over the sandwiches, use about half the jar.
Top with half of the whipped topping.
Repeat for a second layer.
Top with sprinkles.
Freeze, uncovered for two hours. Cover with foil and freeze for an additional hour.
Slice and serve.
Last year I made Curried Lentils with Chicken and Potatoes.
Two years ago I made Slow Cooker Asian Pork.
Three years ago I made BBQ Chicken Pizza
