Seemingly fancy yet totally lowbrow ice cream dessert

25 Feb

After Christmas, some of my most favorite people on earth came to mom’s house for excellent and delicious spaghetti dinner (see how to make that here) and my aunt Paula, mom’s youngest sister, came over with this little ditty for dessert. I didn’t think I would bother saving room since I usually stuff my face with spaghetti sauce but there was no way I could resist.

This needs to sit in the freezer about an hour, so be sure to plan for that.

You will need: A package of plain, old fashioned ice cream sandwiches.

1 jar of chocolate fudge sauce

1 jar of caramel sauce


1 Package of Cool Whip.

Here’s what you do:

Line a pan with the ice cream sandwiches. (obviously you unwrap them.) And then smear Cool Whip on top

Then, add the fudge, caramel and peanuts. You will need to warm the sauces slightly to make them easier to spread but don’t overheat it or you’ll melt the whole lot.
Add some more peanutst to the top layer and bit of chocolate sauce, then stick it in the freezer for a an hour or so.
Slice it like ice cream cake.
It’s like frozen Snickers. Nice work, Paula.
