How to Make Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
Let’s dive into the process of creating this ice cream sandwich cake. It’s simpler than you might think!
PUDDING MIX: Start by preparing the fudge pudding mix. In a large bowl, whisk together the fudge topping (here is a link to our tasty homemade hot fudge sauce) and 1-2 cups of whipped cream until well combined. Add the dry chocolate pudding mix and stir for a couple of minutes. Then, mix in one cup of chopped Oreos and set the mixture aside.
ICE CREAM SANDWICHES: You’ll need 12 ice cream sandwiches for this recipe. Unwrap them all and place 4 of them side by side on a foil-lined baking sheet.
WHIPPED CREAM: Spread half of the whipped cream pudding mixture on top of the first layer of ice cream sandwiches. Repeat the layering process with the remaining ice cream sandwiches and whipped cream.
TOPPING: Don’t forget the finishing touch! Sprinkle the remaining chopped cookies on top of the cake or all around the sides. Place the cake in the freezer for 1 hour. After an hour, lightly wrap the cake with tin foil and keep it in the freezer for an additional 2-3 hours before serving.
If you’re in the mood to venture beyond the classic version, try out some of these exciting variations:
- Add cool whip, chocolate sauce, or caramel sauce in the middle layer of ice cream sandwiches.
- Instead of whipped topping, encase the cake with a magic shell. There are plenty of flavors to choose from, like caramel, Reese’s, chocolate, and even “Unicorn.”
- Experiment with different flavors of Oreo Cookies.
- Sprinkle chopped candy bars on top.
- Add M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chips, or festive sprinkles.
- Enhance the cake with sliced almonds, chopped peanuts, pecans, or walnuts.
- Drizzle strawberry, caramel, or chocolate syrup over it.
- Top it off with maraschino cherries.
With endless possibilities, you can truly customize this summer dessert to your taste!
