Super Easy Ice Cream Cake
Sometimes I am so busy thinking up new ideas, or searching for inspiration, I forget about some real classics I have in my arsenal already. Does anyone else do that? Forget that they haven’t blogged about some all-time favorites?
Well, this recipe is one of those. It’s not a “real” ice cream cake, it’s… cheater ice cream cake. You do need a few hours to freeze it, but the prep for this awesome dessert is seriously 10 minutes or less, and it’s always a hit!
To make an 8″x8″ cake, you need:
1 tub of Cool Whip (the small one)
topping(s) of your choice – I use a handful of mini chocolate chips
Your Cool Whip needs to be thawed before you begin. Unwrap all your sandwiches. This step takes most of the prep time. Now, take half of them and layer them in the bottom of your dish. Some cracks between sandwiches are okay, because we will be re-freezing this, and the Cool Whip will cover any gaps.
Most likely, you will end up with a leftover. I just cut a piece the size I need and set the rest aside, in case I need it for the top layer. Most pans are tapered slightly, and you may need more sandwiches on your top layer than the bottom.
Then, layer the rest of your sandwiches. Again – cut them to fit as needed. Enjoy anything that won’t fit. :P
Top with the remaining Cool Whip, and sprinkles if you choose. Now, freeze it for at least 3 hours. (This is a great thing to make up the night before.) And that’s it! Super easy, and great for summer celebrations!
