Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert


This is one of those recipes that not only does not qualify as a recipe, but it almost does not qualify as food. But it's yummy un-food. My kids really love this dessert and when we left them (with the 18-year-old) recently for a night out, I made it as a special treat. The funny thing is, adults love it too, and you would never guess what the ingredients are by tasting it. I usually don't eat any of these ingredients on their own, but I can't resist a piece of this dessert. You can double the ingredients and put it in a 13 x 9 pan, but I can't remember if you use all the ice cream sandwiches that way.

Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert
9 servings

1 box ice cream sandwiches, unwrapped (duh!)
1 small container Cool Whip
1 bottle Smucker's Magic Shell Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream topping
maraschino cherries, optional

In a 9 x 9 pan arrange a single layer of ice cream sandwiches, cutting a sandwich to fit where necessary. Spoon half the Cool Whip on the sandwiches and spread to edges. Drizzle with a layer of Magic Shell. Place another layer of ice cream sandwiches and the rest of the Cool Whip. Drizzle with Magic Shell. Freeze until ready to serve. Top with a cherry if desired.

We love this around here! In fact, Francie, who doesn't eat cake and usually does not eat ice cream, loves ice cream sandwiches. She's the one who found this "recipe" and I made it for her birthday. It's the first time she's eaten her birthday "cake" since she was 2 years old.

And yes, I know there is something wrong with a child who does not eat cake or ice cream or pie or anything like that for her birthday. ;)

I have a dessert recipe that is very similar to this that we love, and I had forgotten all about it! So easy and so good. Thanks for posting!

I've heard of this dessert but have never seen it made. It would be perfect in the summer! Or now, even, with our 85-degree days in MARCH. (But I'll take 'em!)
