The Easiest Ice Cream Cake EVER!

For Adam's Birthday Cake I found a great idea online at

16 ice cream sandwiches
1 (16 ounce) container frozen non-dairy whipped topping
1 (12 ounce) jar chocolate fudge topping, room temperature
1 (1.5 ounce) bar chocolate candy bar, grated

Place 8 of the ice cream sandwiches side by side in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Spread evenly with half of the hot fudge topping, then half of the whipped topping. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches and toppings. Sprinkle with grated chocolate bar.
Cover and freeze for at least 1 hour before serving. Keep unused portion covered and frozen.

I actually used a few more ice cream sandwiches and I put everything in two 9x9 pans, then I put them in the freezer for 24 hours, and then I stacked the two cakes on top of each other and put more cool whip over it all. I guess I actually used twice as much cool whip! You can never have too much cool whip!

Dad thinks its just okay, but I love this...You know Mom, I think this is the best meal I've ever had in Texas... Mmmmmm thanks for letting me help you with this Mom." I think I should have Pippi help me make dinner every night.
