  • 24 ice cream sandwiches
  • 16 ounces frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip), thawed in the refrigerator
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Caramel syrup
  • Topping of choice: such as mini M&M’s, sprinkles, crushed Oreo cookies, toffee bits, etc.


  • Layer 12 ice cream sandwiches in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch dish. You will need to cut the last ice cream sandwich in half in order to get it to fit in the bottom of the dish. 
  • Allow to soften for a few minutes and then use a spoon to gently press the ice cream sandwiches down a little bit.
  • Spread half of the whipped topping over the ice cream sandwiches. Drizzle with chocolate and caramel syrups. Sprinkle with desired toppings.
  • Top with another layer of 12 ice cream sandwiches. Spread remaining whipped topping over the ice cream sandwiches. Drizzle with additional chocolate syrup and caramel syrup. Sprinkle with additional toppings.
  • Freeze for about 1-2 hours (or overnight) to give the cake time to firm up before slicing and serving.



  • Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich Cake: Use Neapolitan ice cream sandwiches for a combination of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream in your cake. You can garnish the cake with sliced fresh strawberries just before serving and sprinkle with chocolate chips. A drizzle of strawberry syrup would also be a good swap for the caramel.
  • Magic Shell: instead of the chocolate syrup, drizzle the top of the cake with Magic Shell topping.
  • Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich Cake: instead of the M&M's, make the ice cream cake with ice cream sandwiches and a layer of coarsely crushed Oreo cookies (in lieu of the M&M's or other toppings). You can also use Cookies and Cream flavored ice cream sandwiches.
  • Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sandwich Cake: put a birthday spin on this fun dessert! You can purchase Blue Bunny Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sandwiches at many grocery stores and Super Target stores. Use rainbow sprinkles as a fun topping, too.
  • Toppings: I used mini M&M's (which are a favorite at my house), but Stephanie also suggested coarsely crushed Oreos, Heath toffee bits, chocolate chips, crushed waffle cones, chopped peanuts, Reese's pieces or Reese's peanut butter cups.
  • Sprinkles: Garnish with different colored sprinkles to match the upcoming holidays. For instance, one reader suggested using red, white and blue sprinkles for Memorial Day or July 4th!
