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!

You need:

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.

Cool Whip

Heath pieces

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!

  1. Amy, you’re a delight! It’s SO funny that you share your family’s negative comments!!! L O L ! !
    I would gladly eat your dessert if it was served to me, but I respect your son’s comment!
    We don’t have Cool Whip and we don’t have heath… but I think we have a similar chocolate called daim. Is it like butterscotch covered in chocolate?
    Enjoy your day!

  2. That sounds delicious! I am going to add the ingredients to my grocery list! My husband loves heath candy bars. Though, I can hear my youngest saying the same thing your son said! Lol! Thanks for the great blog! Take care and have a great week!

    1. Let me know if you try it!
      Hadley could do this one!
      You can also do an Oreo version instead of the sandwiches. September 1! This year will be weird with Derby? I haven’t decided if I will put out my horse flag? Probably not!

      1. I think their college is holding class that day and on Labor Day Monday to get all of the required time in before Thanksgiving break!
