It is so delicious, no one will guess that it is made of store-bought ice cream sandwiches

  1. Line a 13x9 pan with parchment paper.
  2. Unwrap 12 ice cream sandwichs and layer them along the bottom.
  3. Spread a thin layer of cool whipped topping over the sandwiches.
  4. Spread a thin layer of hot fudge.
  5. Unwrap 12 more ice cream sandwiches and layer again.
  6. Spread the remaining cool whip topping over the whole cake.
  7. Decorate with chocolate sprinkles.

Variations

This recipe is perfect on its own, but if you wanted to change it up a bit, consider these options:

  • Use chocolate ice cream sandwiches
  • Crush oreos in the whipped topping that is in between layers
  • Crush other candies like snickers bars, reeses peanut butter cups, or almond joys
  • Use rainbow sprinkles for the top
  • Decorate with gel to write something pretty for a birthday
  • Any hard candy will work on the top of the cake
  • Add the caramel or butterscotch fudge in the middle in place of the hot fudge
