Ice Cream Sandwich Cake Recipe

Close view of all the layers of the ice cream sandwich cake.
Let me tell you upfront, I love ice cream sandwiches and have since I was a kid. Until Saturday, I've never heard of an ice cream sandwich cake.  When I first saw it served, a whole bunch of nostalgic memories of childhood came up.  I was hooked at first bite.  The combination of vanilla ice cream, chocolate graham cookie, Cool Whip, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and chocolate shavings were satisfyingly refreshing. 

Here is how to make it:

What you'll need
  • Cake pan
  • Grater
  • Ice cream sandwiches (enough to cover the surface area of the cake pan twice)
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (or any other can you'd like)
  • Cool Whip
  1.  Take the cake pan and cover the bottom with a layer of ice cream sandwiches. (Use any brand you like.)
  2. Cover the sandwiches with a thin (about 1/4 inch) layer of Cool Whip.
  3. Cut up Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (about 4-6, depending on the size of the cake pan) and sprinkle on the Cool Whip.  (You can also replace the Reese's with any chocolate candy you prefer.)
  4. Add another layer of ice cream sandwiches on top.
  5. Add on top another layer of Cool Whip.
  6. Use a grater and shave chocolate (you can use leftover Reese's) on top.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the freezer for about 40 minutes before serving.
