This is a recipe I got years ago from a Quick Cooking magazine (now Simple and Delicious). It is quick, easy, and a fun dessert for Summer. Ice cream sandwiches are great, but even better when you add hot fudge topping, nuts, and whipped topping. Love it!
19 ice cream sandwiches
1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 jar (11-3/4 ounces) hot fudge ice cream topping
1 cup salted peanuts (I used an ice cream nut topping that was a mixture of peanuts and pecans)
Cut one ice cream sandwich in half. Place one whole and one half sandwich along a short side of an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. pan. Arrange eight sandwiches in opposite direction in the pan. Spread with half of the whipped topping. Spoon fudge topping by teaspoonfuls onto whipped topping. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup peanuts. Repeat layers with remaining ice cream sandwiches, whipped topping and peanuts (pan will be full).
Cover and freeze for up to 2 months. Remove from the freezer 20 minutes before serving. Cut into squares. Yield: 15 servings.
