A Little Slice of Summer Heaven

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it is one that as soon as I have an excuse to make it, I'm jumping right on it. However, I can totally vouch for it for a couple reasons. One, I got it from a lady in our neighborhood who has the BEST recipes. Two, it contains ice-cream sandwiches, fudge sauce, caramel sauce and cool whip. Done deal right there. What's not to love about that combo??? Let me know if you try this and what you think!!!

Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

You need to work fast so the ice cream doesn't melt. Have all the ingredients ready to assemble. It helps if you have someone help you unwrap all the sandwiches (this might be a good exercise for my 3 year old???). This is a great dessert to make with kids.

24 ice cream sandwiches, unwrapped

1/2 jar fudge sauce

1/2 jar caramel sauce

1 pkg toffee bits

1 large tub cool whip, thawed

4 heath bars or Skorr bars, roughly chopped for the top of the dessert

Place 12 sandwiches in a 9x13 pan. You may have to get creative to make them fit. Then pour 1/4 the jar of fudge on top of the sandwiches. Add 1/4 the jar of caramel, then 1/2 the bag of toffee bits, then spread 1/2 cool whip. Repeat layers. Then chop the Skorr or Heath bars and add them on top. Cover and place in freezer overnight.

TIPS: When you add the second layer of ice cream sandwiches you will have to apply a little pressure to make it fit the pan.

If you slightly microwave the fudge and caramel it is easier to pour.

You can make this 2 days before your party.

Are you drooling yet??????
