Are you looking for a quick, deliciously cool treat to serve on a warm summer day? This ice cream cake is so easy to make that even kids can do it, but so decadent that your guests will think you slaved over it.
Lay half of the ice cream sandwiches, side by side, in a 9 x 13-inch pan. If you have small gaps, cut up one or two sandwiches to fill them in.
Pour half of the hot fudge sauce onto the ice cream sandwiches and spread it over all of them.
Spread half of the whipped topping on the sandwiches.
Repeat the first three steps, layering like a lasagna.
If desired, top with shavings, sprinkles or nuts. Cover and freeze for at least an hour. Slice and serve.
Experiment with different flavors of ice cream sandwiches like Neapolitan or chocolate chip, for example.
