Hope you enjoy this Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sandwich Cake.
The ingredients couldn’t be easier! I started with Kemp’s Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches, Creamy Cool Whip, Hot Fudge Sauce, Salted Caramel Sauce and of course Chewy Caramel Tim Tams. Feel free to substitute any ingredients you want to.
The chopped cookies on top of the hot fudge and salted caramel are chopped up Chewy Caramel Tim Tams. I talked about Tim Tams a bit in my last post. These cookies are wonderful!
I bought mine at Target, but I’m sure they must be available in other stores as well.
So the first layer is made of four ice cream sandwiches laid out so they are touching, then a layer of thawed whipped topping is spread over that.
For the hot fudge and salted caramel sauce, heat them up in separate bowls only until they’re warm enough to drizzle. You don’t want the sauces hot! You want them only warm enough to drizzle/work with.
Keep repeating layers until all twelve ice cream sandwiches are used up.
Look at all those luscious layers! This sweet treat is however surprisingly light!
No your cake won’t lean like mine. I had freezer helpers, my boys.
