Hot Fudge and Caramel Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Last minute we found ourselves rushing off to some dear friends’ house this weekend. With little kiddos … we seem to be doing this often for a social outlet, which is great! Most of our friends have kids the same age as ours as I’d say more often than not, our kids have found some pretty sweet friends that have really awesome parents (SCORE when that happens, right?!)

I needed to think of easy desserts to whip up quickly as my friend was making dinner – and I knew I had a busy day of errands to run. So, I turned to one of my personal favorites … Ms. Ice Cream sandwich to make me an ice cream cake I’d be proud of – and that she did! What more could kids or adults want than ice cream sandwiches, caramel, hot fudge, chocolate chips and toffee?

While I’ve had this recipe forever, I always forget about it, so this was perfect as I knew I wanted to get some shots and put it on the blog – perfect! And, we all need easy dessert recipes, right?!

To make this recipe, first choose your dish. Your measurements are going to depend on the dish you use, so keep hat in mind. For a family dinner like we had (that I made this dessert for) I used a dish like this one. You can always double the recipe if you’re using a 9×13 dish.

Layers of ice cream bars, hot fudge, caramel, whipped topping, and toffee pieces make this Ice Cream Bar Cake look like you labored over it, while it’s actually super easy!

Gather your ingredients:

ice cream cake ingredients

11-12 ice cream sandwiches (usually they come in packages of 12 so you’ll have to eat one)  😉
1 (12.25 oz.) container hot fudge topping
3/4 of a 12.25 oz. container of caramel topping
1 container (8 ounce) Cool Whip
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee pieces

Line your dish with ice cream sandwiches. As you can see, I had to cut a couple to make them fit the dish – perfectly fine and a great part about this dessert.

Microwave the fudge topping for 20 seconds or so to make it pourable – the hot fudge is very thick and will take the chocolate off of the ice cream sandwich.

Spread half of the hot fudge on to the ice cream sandwiches, and then pour on caramel. Spread Cool Whip over caramel and sprinkle with chocolate and toffee.

Repeat that layer to make two fantastic layers of greatness.
