It’s hitting the really hot summer days around here.  When it’s blistering hot outside, my family’s favorite treat is this easy ice cream sandwich cake.  It’s super easy and always a hit.

You can make this cake as large or small as you’d like depending on how many ice cream sandwiches you use.  I use 2 boxes of 12 sandwiches each to fill my 13×9 inch pan.  If you can find the chocolate Cool Whip use that with 2 packages of vanilla ice cream sandwiches.  I haven’t been able to find chocolate Cool Whip this summer, so  I use both vanilla and chocolate ice cream sandwiches and a container of regular Cool Whip.

The hardest part of this recipe is unwrapping all the ice cream sandwiches.  Lay one box out in the pan.

Spread a layer of cool whip on top.  Add the second layer of ice cream sandwiches and top with cool whip.

Pop it in the freezer for an hour or more so it’s firm enough to make it easy to cut.  There you have it.  My family’s favorite summer treat – easy ice cream sandwich cake.  Enjoy!

  1. Hi Susan – This is one of those palm on the forehead moments. It couldn’t be any easier to make and I would have never thought to make it this way. Looks delish! Can’t wait to try. Pinned! Hugs, Holly

  2. I think the hardest part about this cake would be eating the ice cream sandwiches before they made it in the pan! What a great idea! Looks delicious!
