Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

I eat ice cream sandwiches poolside by the dozens. Who can eat just one? Someone with serious self control. The chocolatey cookie, the soft vanilla icecream - it's something no one should live life without experiencing. Take it to a new level by putting it into a dessert and it's an instant hit at a party and you're not embarrassingly licking your fingers and the wrapper to get every last speck of enjoyment out of it.

This recipe has been circulated far and wide - you probably have it in your grandma's church cookbook, but it bears sharing again as I recently made it and am smitten with ice cream sandwiches.

What you need:
1 box of 24 ice cream sandwiches
1 container of coolwhip
1 jar of carmel sauce
Hershey's Syrup (for garnish)

That's IT? Yep, sweet and simple.

You have to work fast on this, as the ice cream melts quickly...grab a 9x13 pyrex and let's get started!

Layer the bottom of your dish with ice cream sandwiches.

Then slather half of a container of Cool Whip on top.

Next, take a jar of carmel sauce and drizzle it over the cool whip. Don't go nuts here, just a nice drizzle.

Place another layer of ice cream sandwiches on top of this and finish it off with a final layer of Cool Whip and some Hershey's Syrup to jazz things up and make it look schmancy. (Crushed candy bars are also divine).

Place this in your freezer for a good 30 minutes before serving so the ice cream can refreeze again.

Enjoy friends! It's a fun, easy summertime treat.

Have a marvelous weekend and don't forget to go to church on Sunday!
