Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

A super, quick, throw together, everybody will love it dessert!

 Around here, this is known as 'Dave's Dessert'. Dave helps us every time we work and I KNOW I HAVE to make this dessert when he does. Once he even sauntered up to me and whispered, "You know I won't be here on Thursday, Sugar." Translated, in Dave speak, that means, "Don't make that dessert on the day I'm not here." LOL! I even had to give him the recipe because apparently he told someone about it and they tried to make it, but it just wasn't the same. I have sent him home with extra portions as well. Initially I was worried it would melt before he got home since he lives about 30 miles from here, but I shouldn't have been concerned. Dave has a heavy foot. Grin!

Yesterday it was 112 degrees. Hubby came in and said he thinks he melted the crew. I was in the kitchen at 3:30 am, fumbling about (at 3:30 that's all I can manage) and beginning preparations for breakfast at 4:30. We start that early in order to beat the heat. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I can't tell you that this dessert will bring cooler temps, but I can guarantee that a melted crew of cowboys will be revived.

Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

Ice Cream Sandwiches (number depends on how big of a pan you make. I usually make a BIG pan. Larger than 9x13. A regular 9x13 isn't really tall enough. I mean it works in a pinch, but my giant lasagna pan is 3" tall - Dave gets 2 helpings and I use 36 sandwiches) Everyone can have seconds unless I have more than a dozen men. Then they have to fight over whatever is left.

1 large Container Cool Whip

1 jar caramel ice cream topping

Hershey's chocolate syrup

Chocolate English Toffee Chips

*Cover the bottom of your chosen pan with ice cream sandwiches.

Spread a layer of Cool Whip on top.

Drizzle the caramel topping over the Cool Whip.

Drizzle the Hershey's Chocolate syrup over the caramel.

Top with another layer of Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Spread 2nd layer of Cool Whip.

Sprinkle Toffee Chips on top.


And if you drive really, really fast, I'll save this last piece for you.

Oh my gosh, you are killing me!!! That looks soooooo yummy! I think I will print this and pass it on to my mom too. She is a cook on boat. Right now she is on the Mississippi River somewhere between St. Louis and New Orleans. She is always looking for new recipes for the guys. They work on the barges and with it being so hot out there, I'm sure they would love this.

Have a wonderful and Blessed day

So sorry that your crew melted, but that Ice Cream Sandwich dessert should help them revive some!! The weatherman here keeps telling us that our 'drought/heat wave' broke last year on Sept. 7. You will NEVER guess what date my focus is on now and it can sure happen sooner if God so desires.

I was excited for you when I read in your blog that you got a/c back a bit. I'm curious if you got a dishwasher. When I load mine, I sometimes think of you and a crew of 12 or more. Hmmmm, is there room in the budget for a fellow quilter to wash dishes and get in some quality sew time????? Just a thought!!!! LOL.....

I friend made one for me for my birthday and I thought I'd died and gone to dessert Heaven. It's seriously devine.

I want that last slice - I'll be there in a bit. Don't let Dave have it. LOL

Karin said...

OH MY. I dare not make that or my hips will be sorry I did! LOL!

I'm at the mailbox. Can you come get me?

This sounds wonderful! There is also a recipe where you layer the sandwiches, top with cherry pie filling, and cool whip. Also very tasty.

Ummmm...I get the feeling I couldn't drive fast enough for that last piece! Which might be just the inspiration I need to MAKE MY OWN! You enabler, you!! LOL! :)

Oh that looks so good, even at 5:30 in the morning! My husband would adore this because he is crazy for ice cream sandwiches!

Staci said...

Hey- do you want a recipe for a similar sort of dessert? I've got one I've made for years and I think every person who has had it asked for seconds.
