They are so easy to do. You can make them several different ways. I wanted a long cake, so I used the larger cake pan. I bought 2 boxes of 12 ice cream sandwich's. I think I ended up using 20 ice cream sandwiches. The regular recipe for this size, required 19.
First you make a layer of ice cream sandwiches. Then you put down a layer of cool whip & crushed oreos (or whatever you choose). Then make another layer of ice cream sandwiches. For some reason, when I did this, there was some extra room. That is why I used the 20th sandwich cut in half length wise & I stuffed along the side. Then I put another layer of cool whip. For the top I used chocolate cool whip because my oldest is a chocolate addict :) Then more crushed oreos. Then freeze for 6 hours.
She loved it! It took her awhile to figure out how I did it. Which was really funny because earlier she found the extra ice cream sandwiches & ate one. We haven't ice cream sandwiches in a really long time, so I thought for sure she'd figure it out right away.
I wasn't sure how good the chocolate cool whip would taste, but after freezing for the 6 hours, it came out really good. This would be great for summer holidays like 4th of July, etc. I have seen these with sprinkles on the top, nuts, other crushed candies. Lots of fun!
You can also use Neapolitan ice cream sandwiches.
