For me, August is the last month of “summer foods”. I like to change everything up seasonally – my foods, my clothing, my scents, my decor – everything! I know it’s little, but doing this keeps every month fresh for me. Several years ago I started dedicating September to all things apple, October to all things pumpkin, and December to all things peppermint with some lingering pumpkin.
Do you love Heath as much as I do? Did you know you can buy Heath pieces next to the chocolate chips? Now you do!
ice cream sandwiches – I did the mini this time but I really think the big work better. You need a very soft crust on the sandwiches so that this dessert all melds together.
Using an 8×8 (I highly recommend using the aluminum disposable if you are going to take this somewhere – and this would be a great dessert to take to a bbq – with a very small number of people, of course), spread a bit of Cool Whip on the bottom of the pan.
Now do one layer of your ice cream sandwiches.
Now do another thicker layer of Cool Whip and half of the Heath bag.
Repeat and this is what it will look like.
Put in freezer for several hours so that it will re-freeze together well. Cut in slices and serve.
Disclaimer: One son was mad that I “ruined” the ice cream sandwiches and said “So you mean you took something great on its own and did this to it?” Husband does not like Cool Whip so I said I would do vanilla ice cream instead of Cool Whip next time.
You can’t please everyone, right?
Let me know if you make it!
