Kid's Corner: Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Do you want to boost your child's self confidence and help them feel proud of an accomplishment? Let them make cake!


Kenna made this cake, from start to finish, with verbal direction from me. She was so proud of her creation and couldn't wait for us to try it!

It was delicious and we let her know it!!!!! She was beaming inside and we had such a good night with her. She was so helpful and even lightened up on teasing her brother. Now that is a miracle!

It is amazing what a little praise and success can do for a child.

Here is the recipe for success:

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

24 Ice Cream Sandwiches (can use reduced fat, or mint)

12 oz. whipped topping (used light)

Your favorite chocolate sauce

Here is the step by step:

Get those ice cream sandwiches out of their wrappers!

Layer 1/2 of the sandwiches in glass 9 x 13 dish.

Top with 1/2" of whipped topping

Repeat layers.

Drizzle top layer with chocolate sauce.

Freeze until ready to serve.

Note: You can add toffee chips, chopped peanut butter cups or whatever your heart desires on the whipped topping layer. This is a great time to teach creativity and self expression!

This dessert serves 12
