Sunday Dinners: Brooke's Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

As you've probably figured out by now, I tweak a lot of the recipes I come across. I love to try new recipes, but I always find that I change them around a bit to suit my own tastes and desires. I served this recipe a few years back at a dinner party and have found myself returning to it time and time again. Here's my version of this deliciously rich ice cream dessert. Enjoy!

Brooke's Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

serves 12-16 ( a little of this dessert goes a really long way)

1 box (12 count) vanilla ice cream sandwiches
1 box (12 count) chocolate ice cream sandwiches
1 (12-ounce) jar hot fudge sauce
1 (12-ounce) jar caramel sauce
2 cups chopped pecans, toasted
2 (8-ounce) containers Cool Whip, thawed

Place layer of vanilla  ice cream sandwiches* in a 13x 9 inch baking dish. Spread hot fudge sauce evenly over sandwiches (reserve about a 1/2 cup for drizzling over the top). Sprinkle evenly with 3/4 cup pecans. Top with 8 ounces of Cool Whip. Add a layer of chocolate ice cream sandwiches*. Spread caramel sauce evenly over sandwiches. Sprinkle evenly with 3/4 cup pecans. Spread the other container (8 ounces) of Cool Whip evenly over sandwiches. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup pecans. Cover and freeze at least 1 hour. Let stand 5 minutes before serving; cut into squares. Warm the remaining hot fudge sauce and drizzle over cut slices.

*I've found that ice cream sandwiches vary in size. Sometimes I have just enough to fit in the bottom of a 13x9 inch pan and other times I have a few extras that I just throw back into the freezer for snacking on later.
