ICE CREAM SANDWICH DESSERT
- 3/4 cup chocolate syrup
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 5-10 ice cream sandwiches*
- 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 1/2 cup salted nuts (I used cashews)
*I used 10 mini ice cream sandwiches (1-1/2 x 3 inches) but any size could be used and easily cut to fit the pan.
One 9-inch loaf pan
Pour the chocolate syrup into a 2-cup glass measure and microwave approximately 2 minutes until very hot but not boiling. Stir in the peanut butter until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool.
In a 9-inch loaf pan, place a layer of ice-cream sandwiches. Sandwiches can be cut to fit.
Spread a half-cup of whipped topping over the sandwiches. Pour half of the chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the topping. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of nuts.
Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours. Cut into squares to serve. This dessert can be served directly from the freezer.
