Snickers Sundae Ice Cream Cake

Sorry for the delay in blogging. In January I enrolled in interior design school and have been busy immersing myself the the amazing theories of design and history of architecture. I LOVE my classes and the work doesn't feel like work at all :-)

Back to blogging world....

Last Sunday was my husband's birthday. He's not a huge fan of cake. I'll pause here to let that last sentence sink in.

Yes, I said he is not a fan of cake. He doesn't fit in at all with our family. Just kidding :-)

What he does love is ice cream cake. So each year on his birthday his family has gotten him an ice cream cake (and sometimes even a regular cake for the rest of us ...... his family is pretty awesome like that).

Over the last few years I have experimented with different forms of homemade ice cream cakes, and after testing and tweaking many, I have come up with the winner. It's so easy to make. It will take you all of 20 minutes.

What you need:
  • 24 ice cream sandwiches
  • 3 snickers bars
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • hot fudge topping
  • caramel topping
  • 8 oz cool whip topping

Lay out the sandwiches to fill a 9x13 baking dish.


Place the snickers in a food processor and pulverize!

Set the snickers crumbles aside and pulverize the peanuts.


Spread your fudge on top of the sandwiches and follow with the caramel.

Lick the jars clean even if it is right before dinner time.

Spread all of the snickers crumbles down, then MOST of the peanut crumbs. (Save some for the garnish).

Place another layer of sandwiches on top.

Spread a layer of cool whip on top and garnish with the remainder of the peanut crumbs.

Cover delicately and put in the freezer for at least 6 hours before eating. I always make this the night before I need it.
Remove from the freezer and let thaw about 15 minutes before serving.
This is such a yummy cake. I even tripled this recipe last August and used it as my daughter's birthday cake. It was such a huge hit!! Everyone was asking me what was in it and were so surprised to find out how simple it was.
Great thing about this cake is you can completely switch out the ingredients to suit your taste. It would be awesome with peanut butter cups, M&Ms, or Oreos. 
oooooo ... good thing my birthday is coming up next month, the peanut butter cups are calling my name.
                                                    Enjoy and have a wonderful day!
