Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Lasagna

I really wish I could remember where I first heard about this recipe.  I owe a debt of gratitude to the forgotten person who shared it with me!

It was described to me as an “ice cream sandwich cake,” but the first time Matt had it, he dubbed it “Ice Cream Lasagna.”

It is truly the world’s easiest way to make an ice cream cake, and the layers are so pretty when it is cut.  This particular version was for the birthday of a friend who likes mint chocolate – so it is modified slightly from the original.  Basically, whatever flavors and toppings you like will work, so be creative and enjoy!

25 ice cream sandwiches (these were mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches)

1 jar of hot fudge

1 large tub of cool whip, softened

chopped candy for the topping (I used Andes mints)

1 package of Oreos, crushed in food processor to powdery consistency

Line the bottom of a 9×13 pan with aluminum foil.  Unwrap the ice cream sandwiches and arrange them tightly in the bottom of the pan – cutting them if necessary to fit.

Next, top the layer of ice cream sandwiches with about half of the cool whip.

Then top the layer of cool whip with the slightly warmed hot fudge.

And gently spread the hot fudge all over the layer.

Cover this layer with the chopped up Oreos.  I mixed a little chocolate sauce in with the Oreos because I was afraid it might be too crumbly out of the freezer, but it probably wasn’t necessary.  And now you’re ready for the next layer of ice cream sandwiches!

Cover the Oreo layer tightly with ice cream sandwiches, cutting them to fit as before.

(At this point, you could frost the top with cool whip, top with candies, and put it back into the freezer to freeze before serving, but since this was for a special occasion, I proceeded a little differently.)

Now, I played a foil covered piece of cardboard on top of the pan and flipped the cake upside down.

Now I covered the whole cake in a layer of cool whip.

And topped it with the chopped Andes mints and a drizzle of chocolate.

Now back into the freezer to harden up before serving!  And cut to serve.

Look at the pretty layers!!

The end.
