Easy Ice Cream Cake
28 ice cream sandwiches (you may need more or less, but this was what I needed)
1.75 quart container of ice cream, softened a bit (I used chocolate, but I'm sure any flavor other than vanilla would be good)
1-2 c. crushed oreos
12-16 oz container of whipped topping (I bought a 16 oz, spread it on crazy thick, and had quite a bit left over)
Then, squirt some of the chocolate and caramel over the sandwiches.
Then, sprinkle some of the oreo crumbs.
Then smooth the softened 1.75 quarts of ice cream on top.
Squirt more chocolate and caramel, and sprinkle more oreos on top.
Lastly, put the remaining 14 ice cream sandwiches on top. Cover with foil, and freeze at least overnight.
Just before serving, remove from freezer. Put some very hot water either on a baking sheet or in another 9x13 pan. Dip the bottom of the ice cream pan in the hot water for a minute or two to soften the edges a little.
Put a cookie sheet over the top of the 9x13 pan, then invert. If you're lucky, it'll all come out as one solid piece. Smooth the whipped topping over the sides and top of your ice cream cake. Squirt more chocolate and caramel over the top to make it look pretty. Serve immediately. For us, it served 14 kids and 10 adults, with 2 pieces left over.
