If you want to fancy it up, you can drizzle a little chocolate syrup over each serving and top with a maraschino cherry and a sprig of mint. No one would ever believe how simple this dessert was to prepare. However, I have never been able to keep it a secret and people are always surprised to learn how easy it was to make.

Drizzle some chocolate sauce and some melted peanut butter on the top of the ice cream. Put remaining ice cream on top of that and again drizzle the top with chocolate sauce and peanut butter, then top with some broken up Reese's or whatever candy you like. Cover and freeze for an hour or so. So easy and you won't have any left, trust me, it is delicious and easy.

For an elegant and yummy treat take a square pan and frost the inside with thawed Cool Whip. Unwrap rectangular chocolate cookie ice cream sandwiches and lay side by side to fill pan (you may have to cut a few to fit the sides), top these with a fudge sauce, another layer of Cool Whip with nuts or sliced maraschino cherries if desired.
Make a second layer of the ice cream sandwiches and end with cool whip on top sprinkled with nuts if you choose. Cover with plastic wrap and then foil and refreeze till time to serve.
Cut pieces of this cake and serve. Pretty and yummy:) If making as a treat to give away you can make it in an aluminum square pan.
Cut into squares to serve. (Top with chopped nuts and a drizzling of chocolate syrup, and a cherry, optional.)
Source: A friend, who is an excellent cook, served this dessert and everyone loved it. We all wanted the recipe, but figured it would be involved. What a pleasant surprise to find out how easy it is to make. Great for a last minute dessert. You can also make it ahead of time and keep it ready in the freezer.

Place frozen ice cream sandwiches in a 9x12 inch pan; you may have to break a couple in half to put on ends. Spread with Cool Whip or whipped topping of your choice, and refreeze. Take out of freezer about 15 minutes before you plan to serve. Garnish with chocolate fudge sauce or caramel topping. Sprinkle on chopped peanuts, if desired.
Source: I got this recipe from Taste of Home and modified it a bit to fit the people that I am serving. I have served it at church, but because many of our members cannot eat peanuts, I have left them off.
