Frozen Chocolate, Caramel & Toffee Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert


First, a disclaimer: If you are watching your intake of desserts or on a diet, then please look away.  But if you are not, then please stay.  

This is an amazing and decadent dessert that I made for 4th of July.  I saw this recipe a few years ago on Recipe Girl's site and have been holding on to it for the perfect family gathering.  This was super easy to put together and there are only a few ingredients.  My 15 year old nephew, Andy, helped me and we had so much fun together.  This feeds a large crowd but I guarantee there won't be any left over.  

Note:  All the pictures on this post were taken by my sister-in-law, Aggie. (Aggie's Kitchen) Thank you so much Aggie for the awesome photos and for a wonderful time visiting. 


Frozen Chocolate, Caramel & Toffee Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert
Recipe slightly adapted from Recipe Girl


Ingredients

1 deep dish rectangular throw away foil pan (9 x 13)
24 ice cream sandwiches (I bought 2 boxes of 12)
2 - 8 oz. tubs of Cool Whip
Jar of caramel sauce
Jar of chocolate sauce
Bag of Heath bits
2-3 King Size Hershey Bars, chopped (original recipe uses 4 bars of Heath or Skor candy bars)

Directions

1. Spray foil pan with cooking spray.  Unwrap and layer 12 ice cream sandwiches side by side in bottom of pan.  If you have any open spaces on the sides, cut the ice cream sandwiches to fit and fill in the gaps.  

2. Spread one tub of Cool Whip over the 1st layer of ice cream sandwiches.  Drizzle the caramel and chocolate sauces over the Cool Whip.  Sprinkle with toffee bits.  Cover the pan with tin foil and freeze for one hour.

3. Layer 2nd layer of 12 ice cream sandwiches on top of the toffee bits.  Spread 2nd tub of Cool Whip.  Drizzle the caramel and chocolate sauces over the Cool Whip.  Sprinkle the top with more toffee bits and chopped Hershey Bars. (or just the Heath/Skor candy bars if you have those)  Cover again with tin foil and freeze for several hours until firm.

4. When ready to serve, cut into squares.  Indulge!

Exciting news:  My sister-in-law, Aggie, is now a daily contributor to
Family Kitchen on Babble.com.  Check out her recipes and all other food-related items. Aggie is such an inspiration to me and I'm lucky to call her family!

Enjoy!


Mom's Cooking Club Lesson:  This dessert is very large but keeps well in the freezer. (in case by some chance you have any leftover)  I highly recommend you make this for your next family get together, neighborhood potluck or holiday celebration.
