Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Making an ice cream cake with ice cream sandwiches is so clever isn’t it? Half the work is done for you already by just buying a few boxes of sandwiches from the grocery store. I love how simple it makes it all.

And this isn’t just cake. We made this one specifically for the Oreo lovers by using Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream sandwiches and topping it off with crushed Oreo cookies.

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich Cake Ingredients

  • Cookies ‘n Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches – two boxes.
  • Cool Whip – partially thawed so you can spread across the ice cream.
  • M&M’s – you can get creative with these and use the minis, or the peanut butter version, etc.
  • Chocolate Sauce – to drizzle.
  • Oreos – for the topping.
  • Sprinkles – optional for decoration. You can use this to match colors for a holiday or a kids favorite color for a birthday.

Each time you make this you can vary it but choosing different flavors of ice cream, candy and cookies!

How To Make Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

  1. Layer four ice cream sandwiches, half a container of Cool Whip, M&M’s and chocolate syrup.
  2. Freeze for 15 minutes.
  3. Continue with the remaining layers.
  4. Top it off with cookies and sprinkles.
  5. Freeze altogether for 2 hours before serving.

See, super easy right? You can make it ahead of time because it will store well in the freezer up to a month, wrapped in foil.
