I almost didn’t post this recipe. I figured that because it uses only processed ingredients, it wasn’t “on brand”. But then I said “Who cares! My family loves this recipe, and I’m gonna share it no matter what some people my think!”

Truthfully, this recipe is a little different than most of the recipes I share. Namely that it’s not made from real ingredients – not made from scratch. But in this case, it means that this recipe is super quick and easy to whip up, and it feeds a crowd. And who cares if it’s not exactly health food – who doesn’t love ice cream sandwiches??

This cake will easily be one of the easiest things you ever make – all you need to do is place the ice cream sandwiches in a baking dish, layer with whipped topping, and repeat. And one of the best things about this is that it’s customizable.

I almost always add sprinkles, but this time I also threw in a few coarsely chopped maraschino cherries and some chocolate shell topping. I’ve also done it with hot fudge and caramel sauce, which was also a big success. I think nuts would also be delicious, but my kids vetoed that idea. And don’t forget that you can get different flavors of ice cream sandwiches – this time we did one box of plain, and one box of Neapolitan.

I highly recommend making this super easy cake for your next summer get together, as it feeds a crowd and everyone will love it. However, if you want to make a smaller one just for your family, you can easily make a half recipe with just one box (12) ice cream sandwiches, and one small container (8 ounces) of whipped topping. Just assemble it in a smaller (9×9″) baking dish and you’re good to go!

Easiest Ever Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

This ice cream sandwich cake is about the easiest summer dessert ever. All it takes is as little as two ingredients, and a few minutes to put it together!
Prep Time15 mins
Total Time2 hrs
Servings: 16
Calories: 318kcal

Ingredients

  • 24 ice cream sandwiches
  • 16 ounces frozen whipped topping (eg. Cool Whip), thawed (see note)
  • sprinkles, hot fudge, chocolate shell, caramel or chocolate sauce, chopped nuts, candy, etc. optional add ins

Instructions

  • Lay ice cream sandwiches in a single layer in a 9×13" baking dish or similar sized casserole dish, cutting sandwiches as needed to make them fit. Spread half of the whipped topping an any optional add-ins you may want to use on top.
  • Add another single layer of ice cream sandwiches (depending on the size/shape of your dish, you may not use up all of the ice cream sandwiches). Repeat with another layer of whipped topping and add-ins, noting that this will be the top and you can decorate it as desired.
  • Place in the freezer, and freeze until the whipped topping has the consistency of ice cream, at least 2 hours. Cut into pieces and serve frozen.

Notes

If you don’t want to use whipped topping in a tub, I suspect you could easily use an equal portion of real whipped cream, but I haven’t tried it yet, so I’m not certain. If you try it, I’d love to know how it turns out!
