My Experimental Ice Cream Cake

 
 
I have a new summer favorite! I am in love with this cake I recently made for a get together we were hosting at our home for our youth group .



 I wanted something nice and cool for a treat on this hot July Sunday. I have made the ice cream sandwich cakes with different variations in the past. I like them but honestly didn't LOVE them. So I decided to make my dessert up as I went along. I have been known to do this many times in the past. I drove my mom nuts when I was young and would experiment on her and my dad! I will say that I have stumbled upon some very good recipes accidently with these experiments. My family loves when this happens. I won the approval of my whole house on this recipe. We will be keeping this new dessert around for sure!

My experiment recipe: 
I started with 24 ice cream sandwiches (this is very popular with ice cream cakes right now)
then I layered the bottom of a 9x13 pan with twelve of them.
 
 
 

 

I mixed these ingredients in a bowl together: 1 8oz of cool whip topping to one large box of instant chocolate pudding.



 

 I then warmed a 15.5 oz  bottle of hot fudge topping for about 1 minute in the microwave.




 I added 2 cups of crushed Oreo cookies. I mixed this for a layered topping over the ice cream sandwiches.





 

 

 Then repeat your layers and top with crushed Oreos and fudge topping drizzled over the cake!



Cover with tin foil and freeze for a while. I let mine set in the freezer for 4 hours.


 I must give you a warning about this cake... You will be addicted and you will NOT be able to stop at one bite! So there it is!  You have to try it out! This is one cool treat that beats the heat!
