The best summer dessert to cool off with!

If you are looking for a dessert to make this summer with your kids that will have everyone shouting "I scream for ice cream!" then you have landed in the right spot.

Disclaimer: Once you make this dessert, you will be asked to make it all summer long by everyone who tries it.

☺Ice Cream Sandwich Cake☺

Here are the ingredients. You will need 24 ice cream sandwiches, maraschino cherries, chocolate syrup, and whipped topping. Easy enough!

Layer ice cream sandwiches into bottom of pan.

Pour as much syrup as you want over the top of the ice cream bars and then add another layer of sandwiches.
Note: This one is completely made by my boys.

 Spread whipped topping over the second layer of sandwiches.

Add sprinkles and drizzle chocolate syrup on top. Freeze overnight. Add the cherries right before serving so they aren't frozen.

Trust me, this is the best ice cream cake you'll ever have! One of my sons just requested it for his birthday cake in three months.

TIPS: The options are endless. You can add caramel syrup instead of the chocolate syrup. You can add mint chocolate chip ice cream in the center layer for a chocolate mint ice cream cake. You can add mocha ice cream for a coffee ice cream cake. You can add strawberry ice cream for a chocolate strawberry ice cream cake. You can even get peanut butter ice cream sandwiches that are very popular right now and make a peanut butter and chocolate ice cream cake.

Here is a segment I filmed for FOX on making this recipe:

I have made these before, but have also tried mint chocolate chip sandwiches. I then sprinkled those Andes mints that I chopped up on the top. I have never seen peanut butter ones!! Yummy!!

This is new to me and I am going to make it for tomorrow, What size pan do you use? 9x13?

I'm going to make it tonight for our 4th of July dessert! Looks GREAT! Thanks for an easy dessert to make!

Yes, I used a 9 x 13 pan, but you really can use any size and just break the ice cream sandwiches as needed.
