Ice Cream Dessert

This is a very simple dessert to make with very little fuss for a birthday or any other special occasion. This time I made it for my son's birthday party.

24 vanilla ice cream sandwiches
Whipping cream, whipped and sweetened..approx 3/4 litre of whipping cream
Chocolate shavings

In a 9 x 13" pan (2" high).. layer 12 ice cream bars, then a layer of whipped cream, another layer of 12 ice cream bars and another layer of whipped cream.
Sprinkle top with bits of chocolate shavings.
Place in freezer and allow to freeze for a few hours, till the whipped cream is frozen. Keep frozen until time to serve it.
Perfect dessert for a hot day:)

  2. Betty, dear, this is fun! I typically have ice cream sandwiches in my freezer as I've had a life long weakness for them, and now I see a way to make them even better! Oh my! I am loving all that whipped cream, grins!!!

  4. This looks so good. Easy, but impressive. I think I have had this somewhere before, but have never made it. one of my daughters loves ice cream sandwiches and her birthday is just around the corner. This just may be the cake. Kathy

  9. Since I don't want June Freaking Cleaver to be deprived of this fantastic dessert (I made it already for supper and snitched some) there are really good non dairy ice cream sandwiches (they are 1/2 sized) called Tofuttie Cuties and non dairy toppings available - Cool Whip is one but there are others.

  14. Ohhh...and they make ice cream sandwiches in neopolitan-strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. The stripes would be adorable!!!

  15. Oh my, neapolitan ice cream bars..didn't know about them..those stripes would be wonderful! Our grocery stores here don't carry those.

  16. Just for clarification....are we talking ice cream bars (as in Klondike-type) or ice cream sandwiches with the cookie around them???

  19. I made it last night while visiting with a girlfriend, who said, "Gee, that was easy" and she came over today for the birthday party to taste it (and it is only 35C). This recipe is...A KEEPER! Husband preferred it over the DQ ice cream cake!

  20. I have moved away from my small Mennonite town almost two years ago now and am sooo pleased to come across something familiar such as your site... May GOD bless YOU all and may everything that you touch bring glory to HIS holy Name...

  21. What a great idea! Just thinking here that if I make it for adults I just might drizzle the first layer with some favorite liqueur and/or some crushed nuts!!
