This easy peasy ice cream sandwich dessert is the perfect ice cream cake for a backyard party. 



  • 24 ice cream sandwiches (We used the square Klondike sandwiches, but any brand will do.)
  • 2 containers of Cool Whip topping, thawed
  • 1 jar chocolate sauce
  • 1 jar caramel sauce
  • 1 package sprinkles


Set out a freezer-safe 9 x 13 baking pan. Unwrap 12 ice cream sandwiches and place them in a single layer along the bottom of the pan. It’s ok to kind of squeeze them in, you want them in an even and flat layer.

Use the back end of a small cooking spoon handle to poke holes (2 – 3 per sandwich) evenly across the bottom layer. Drizzle chocolate sauce and caramel sauce over the sandwiches to fill the holes.

Spread one package of Cool Whip evenly across the bottom layer. Unwrap the remaining 12 ice cream sandwiches and gently place them in an even layer over the Cool Whip. 

Poke more holes over the top layer and drizzle more caramel & chocolate sauce. Frost the top with the second container of Cool Whip. Sprinkle your festive sprinkles over the top. Freeze the dish until you are ready to serve. 


We used this 9 x 13 baking pan for our dessert and the space and depth worked perfectly. It comes with a perfect domed lid that allows for covering the dessert without flattening the whipped topping. You can get one on Amazon here.
