Banana Split Ice Cream Cake

I don't know about where you guys are, but it gets hot here in New Mexico. The perfect solution? Easy ice cream cake! I got this recipe from I changed it up a little. You can use regular ice cream sandwiches and regular oreos, but I REALLY liked this one!

1/2 cup hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
8 OREO Banana Split Sandwich Cookies, chopped (about 1 cup)
12 neopolitan ice cream sandwiches, unwrapped
additional hot fudge, warmed; for drizzle (optional)
chopped nuts (optional)
maraschino cherries (optional)

MIX fudge topping, 1 cup whipped topping and the dry pudding mix with whisk until blended. Stir in chopped cookies. Add a little more whipped topping if needed.

ARRANGE 4 ice cream sandwiches on 24x12-inch foil. Top with half of whipped topping mixture. Repeat layers, ending with ice cream sandwiches on top. If the mixture is hard to spread, heat it up a little more. Don't heat it too much though, or it will melt the ice cream!

FROST top and sides with remaining whipped topping. At this point you can either call it quits or add the extra fudge for drizzle, nuts, and cherries.

WRAP loosely in foil. Freeze at least 4 hours.
