No baking, no mixing, no measuring...DELICIOUS!

ice cream sand dessert
When I saw this deliciousness over at recipegirl.com (great site!), well, I knew it was a must make...and a must make NOW!!! :)

This incredible dessert involves no baking, no whisking, no folding...just adding layers of yummy goodness!

There really is no recipe...here's how you make Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert:
  • Place a layer of 12 ice cream sandwiches on the bottom of a 13 x 9" pan. (You'll have to get creative to make the last 4 or so fit.)ice cream sandwiches
  • Cover that with a layer of thawed Cool Whip, using the entire regular size tub. (Yes, there is a time and a place for Cool Whip ;).)
  • On top of that, generously drizzle on caramel and fudge toppings.
  • Sprinkle on Heath Bits.
  • Repeat the layers, but instead of Heath bits, cut up Heath or Skor Bars in large chunks and sprinkle those on top. (I used about 5 bars.)ice cream sand top
This makes a LOT of dessert. Cut it into small pieces...you'll want them small with all of those layers...and it feed a crowd!

Oh, and all of the possibilities! I KNOW I've seen Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches and went to three grocery stores looking for them without success (insert internal cursing here). But wouldn't this be fun using the cookies 'n cream sandwiches, fudge sauce and crushed Oreos?!? Mmmmmm.....

    You know, you could easily cut this recipe in half so you don't have so much to tempt you.

  13. I know how crazy you must've felt searching for those cookies & cream ice cream sandwiches! I did the same thing last month, looking for the all-vanilla version of ice cream sandwiches to make an apple pie version of that dessert. I ended up using cinnamon graham crackers, Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream (the best!), apple pie filing, caramel sauce, and Cool Whip. Very good, but the ice cream sandwiches would've made it go faster!

  15. Get out! Now I can only dream about this, cause we don't have ANY of the ingredients in Brazil! Or... I could buy a plane ticket to Texas and have a piece (how do you spell cheaptickets.com?)

  19. Bridget,
    I have made this before and loved it also....but the crowning glory was the coffee ice cream sandwiches used. We have lots of choices in our ice cream sandwiches here! :)
    I am making the Hostess cupcakes for the party!

  22. I knew it was trouble when I found your blog a few months ago- I think I actually said that out loud at the time... =)
    I love this idea though, my son's birthday party is Sunday and this will be a fun dessert for the adults and kids alike! I looked last night at Smiths and they have cookies and cream, mint choc chip, strawberry vanilla and choc, and blondies along with the basic. The possibilities!

  23. Another note: I sent this to my friend in Wisconsin and she said, "I'm not sending this to anyone until I make it and surprise them - I don't want anyone to beat me to it." I'm doing the same thing - not sharing locally until I make it!

  24. I wish I had seen this a week ago. I had a bbq on the weekend and this would have been PERFECT! It was 44 degrees here with the humidity and this cold treat would have been awesome! although it probably would have melted as quickly as we were! :)

  25. ur own cookies and cream ice cream sandwiches...you buy the chocolate cookie wafer thingys in a bulk foods store...Prepare them ahead and freeze...the cookies turn softjust like at the grocery store...then you are NEVER in a pinch again. Grocery stores ALWAYS have Cookies and cream ice cream on hand....Oh and the wafers you get way more in a package and with the ice cream on sale you just saved your self some cash!

  26. this looks to die for... i am definitely making this at the next bbq! Love your site!

  32. YUM! I made this last week for company that came over for dinner - big raves from everyone! I proceeded to eat a piece everyday after. My layers didn't look as pretty as yours. Maybe I should have frozen it longer?

  33. Melissa...I did make mine a day ahead. Maybe that helped. I also used my bench scraper to cut it.
