My husband turned 36 this past Saturday, and I wanted to put a spin on the old birthday cake. Now if you have a sweet tooth of any kind, or a weak stomach, I suggest turning away now…this post might put you in a sugar comma (my apologies!) He has a summer birthday and what better way to celebrate than with ice cream cake, but I didn’t want to go out and just buy one so I put a spin on his favorite treat! He LOVES ice cream sandwiches, and a few of his friends had suggested an ice cream sandwich cake, hmmmmmmmm. Combine that with his favorite candy, Snickers, and boom, a wonderful dessert idea was born! Talk about simple! I even made the whip cream myself!
1-2 boxes of Ice Cream Sandwiches (Hood brand is bigger and will cover your cake pan better)
Hot Fudge & Cameral Sauce
Snickers (or your favorite candy/toppings-anything work here!!!)
Whip Cream (I made my own, heavy cream + sugar + Kitchen aid = Home made Whipped Cream!)
Cake Pan (Any size, depending on how big you want your cake)
First I whipped the cream and chopped up the snickers into smaller pieces in our food processor. I waited as long as possible to bring out the ice cream sandwiches because they tend to melt VERY FAST! Then I covered the bottom of the cake pan with the first layer of sandwiches, poured the chocolate & cameral sauce on top then the whip cream. I then sprinkled some snickers on top of that. Repeat that! It’s as easy as that! I put tin foil on top and placed in the freezer for at least three hours to harden. It is very sweet, but it does it ever hit the spot! I suggest making it for a larger group, so there aren’t any leftovers…it’s always dangerous to have sweets hanging around longer than they should!
