Lazy Dessert.

Lemon Meringue Pie & Tiramisu just seemed too ambitious for tonight.
So I made...

Lazy Ice Cream Cake.
  • 12 ice cream sandwiches, any flavor
  • Ice cream, any flavor- softened
  • Ice cream topping, such as caramel, hot fudge, strawberry, etc.
  • Whipped Topping
Line an 8" x 8" pan with saran wrap. Using half the sandwiches, make a single layer. 

Cover the ice cream sandwiches with softened ice cream- try to make an even layer. 
I used about 1/3 of a tub of Cookies 'n Cream.

Cover the ice cream with a thin layer of hot fudge. It looks... not beautiful.

Finish the layers off with the remaining ice cream sandwiches. 
Throw the pan in the fridge for about an hour so the ice cream can harden.

Once the ice cream has hardened, invert the pan onto the plate you'll serve it from.
"Frost" the cake with the whipped topping.

I tried to get fancy and made lines of caramel & chocolate sauce, then dragged a toothpick in alternating directions to create the design.
Return the cake to the freezer until ready to serve.

Easiest Dessert Ever.


  1. used mint chocolate chip ice cream, fudge and creme de menthe topping for st patrick's day. YUM!
