  • 2 boxes of ice cream sandwiches (24 total bars)
  • 1 carton of whipped topping


  1. Place 12 of the ice cream sandwiches in a 9 x 13 inch dish. (You may have to cut the last one and fill in with it.)
  2. Stir the whipped topping to add volume. Spread half of the topping on top of sandwiches.
  3. Place the remaining 12 sandwiches on top of the whipped topping.
  4. Spread remaining whipped topping over the top layer of ice cream sandwiches.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and put into the freezer until ready to serve.

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.

  • 1 box of ice cream sandwiches (I use storebrand)
  • 1 large lite or regular Cool Whip
  • chocolate syrup*
*I use the store brand of chocolate syrup or if you have some chocolate chips on hand you can melt some in the microwave and use for your drizzle on top.


Layer ice cream sandwiches in a cake pan. Top with the Cool Whip, then drizzle chocolate syrup on top, using as much as you like. Repeat if you have room in your pan. Freeze before serving.

This is always is a very quick and easy recipe to make ahead of time or at the last minute. Adults and children of all ages like this easy dessert.

  • ice cream sandwiches
  • 1/2 gallon Cookies and Cream ice cream
  • chocolate sauce
  • peanut butter, melted
  • candy (Reese's, etc.)


First line a cake pan with ice cream sandwiches. I use the regular ones with the vanilla ice cream in the middle with the chocolate cookies. Soften a half gallon of ice cream of your choice. Spread half the ice cream on your ice cream sandwiches.

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...

Line a 9x13 inch casserole dish with 12 of the ice cream bars. Cover with half of the whipped topping. Place the remaining 12 ice cream bars on top of the whipped topping.

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.
