My kids love this on a hot summer day. I have found it works well also to divide the chocolate fudge topping and use half in step 5 and the other in step 7. You may also add a jar of caramel topping if you desire.

  1. Cut one ice cream sandwich in half.
  2. Place one whole and one half sandwich along a short side of an ungreased 13x9x2 inch pan.
  3. Arrange eight sandwiches in opposite direction in the pan.
  4. Spread with half of the whipped topping.
  5. Spoon fudge topping by teaspoonfuls onto whipped topping.
  6. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup peanuts.
  7. Repeat layers with remaining ice cream sandwiches, whipped topping and peanuts.
  8. Pan will be full.
  9. Cover and freeze.
  10. Remove from freezer 20 minutes before serving.
  11. Cut into squares.

Wow! It's a keeper! It's so yummy and super easy. I took it out of the freezer just as we all sat down to eat dinner and by the time we were ready for dessert about 1/2 hr later it was perfect. I used chopped pecans and I will try some other toppings next time, but our guests asked for the recipe. You know it's a hit when guests ask for the recipe. Someone suggested 1/2 caramel topping and 1/2 chocolate, that is a good suggestion to try too.

A wonderful, simple summer dessert! I used mini chocolate chips rather than the peanuts (but I think the peanuts would be delicious also--kind of like a drumstick). I also reversed the order of the filling ingredients between layers of ice cream sandwiches. I first spread the fudge sauce, then topped with the mini chocolate chips & the Cool Whip. (I didn't think the fudge sauce would spread over the Cool Whip very well.) I topped with a few extra mini chocolate chips so it looked pretty & wala a beautiful, delicious dessert that has a real "wow" factor. It looks like you went to an awful lot of work, when you just assemble it in minutes! Thanks for a great one!
