I have a coconut that does not like cake. Last year, I just bought a tub of ice-cream and stuck candles in it. I thought that even though that’s what he wanted, it just didn’t look right. Lucky for me, he loves ice-cream sandwiches. Lucky for me, I found a recipe for an ice-cream sandwich cake. Lucky for me, he invited me to his birthday so that I could have some of that ice-cream sandwich cake.
Soooooo, because I made this cake as soon as I returned from the grocery store, some of the items were a little melty, which caused me to snap pictures in a hurry. I should redo the cake and take better pictures, but I don’t think my hips can afford any more calories.
So here’s what you’ll need: COOL WHIP, FUDGE SAUCE, OREO COOKIES, CHOCOLATE PUDDING MIX, 12 ICE-CREAM SANDWICH BARS. Just make sure they aren’t melting.
You are going to need to crush your oreo cookies. Now I took some creative license on the cookie part because, I just plain forgot that I even needed cookies. Lucky for me, my hubby had a hankering for some fudge cookies, so I just crushed that instead. Also, the pudding is supposed to be chocolate as well. I forgot the recipe needed pudding. I only had vanilla pudding in my pantry, so I used that instead. It’s your choice. You can either be like me or don’t be like me.
While you figure out which way in life your going to go, take all your ingredients pictured above and throw them into a big bowl and mix.
Wrap up the sides with foil. You want to wrap just enough to hold its shape. Quickly throw it in the freezer, then go do laundry, have lunch, take a nap, watch Roots, whatever will help you pass at least 4 hours by. This cake needs to be in the freezer for at least this long to be frozen and firm.
ICE-CREAM SANDWICH CAKE
12 ice-cream sandwich bars (frozen) 1/2 cup of warmed fudge sauce
1 tub of cool whip 8 oreo cookies, crushed
1 pkg of chocolate Jell-O Instant Pudding Mix
Mix 1 cup of the cool whip with the fudge sauce, oreo cookies and pudding mix. Here’s how the rest of your cake will go: 1st layer – 4 ice-cream sandwich bars, 2nd layer – half of the fudge sauce mix, 3rd layer – 4 ice-cream sandwich bars, 4th layer – rest of fudge sauce mix, 5th layer – 4 ice-cream sandwich bars. Take the rest of your cool whip and slather the whole cake with it. If your cool whip is firm enough, you could just stick the whole thing in your freezer. Otherwise, use the foil to bring up the sides (see the picture above ) to help it keep it’s shape and then quickly put it the freezer to set. Keep it in the freezer for at least 4 hours. When the cake is set, cut a slice and enjoy!
