I got this recipe from my sister-in-law a couple years ago when I instantly fell in love with it.  This is one of my FAVORITE desserts to make.  It screams Summer and is delicious.  But Very rich.  I made it to celebrate the 4th of July,but made only a half recipe because I don’t trust myself to stop after a reasonable portion!

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

 ½ cups Hot Fudge Ice Cream Topping
12 ounces, fluid Cool Whip Topping Thawed
4 ounces, weight Vanilla Instant Pudding Box
1 cup Chopped Oreos
1 package Ice Cream Sandwiches

POUR fudge topping into a medium bowl. Whisk in 1 cup Cool Whip. Add dry pudding mix; stir 2 minutes. Stir in chopped cookies.

ARRANGE 4 ice cream sandwiches, side-by-side, on a 24-inch-long piece of foil; top with half the pudding mixture. Put on 4 more sandwiches (going the same direction) and then put the rest of the pudding mixture on top. Put remaining sandwiches on the very top. Frost top and sides with remaining Cool Whip – using a rubber spatula works best. Bring up foil sides; double fold top and ends to loosely seal packet.

FREEZE at least 4 hours or overnight.
