InTheKitchenI posted pictures on Facebook of the Ice Cream Sandwich cake I made earlier this week for my son’s 14th birthday. It was easy. It was a bit messy. It is oh so good!

And it can be made using Sugar-Free ingredients for a Sugar-Free cake as well and my husband has already put in an order for one for his birthday next year.

If you didn’t see the picture of a slice of it, here you go…

The recipe for it can be found here on this blog. Honestly, it’s not much more than a box of ice cream sandwiches, a box of pudding, some hot fudge sauce, a few Oreos, and Cool Whip.

If you know me at all, you know I don’t usually use boxed anything. If it can be made from scratch, that’s what I will do to keep the amount of chemicals and preservatives out of our diets. I haven’t quite figured out the stabilized whipped cream yet, but I’m working on it. This though, was easy to do and with as much as I’ve been writing, we’re doing home school testing, and the fact that I wasn’t going to be home the day of my son’s birthday, making this recipe using all the convenience items saved an enormous amount of time. It is yummy. Very much so and I’ve always been a sucker for ice cream sandwiches.

I’ve always loved ice cream treats, usually much more than ice cream in a bowl. The Good Humor Chocolate Eclair ice cream bars were my favorite. Still are, though I don’t buy them but maybe once a year and then I eat the whole box in one sitting.

What about you? Do you have a favorite ice cream treat?

Give this recipe a try though. Will make a wonderful summertime treat!
