Ice Cream Sandwich Desserts

No one will believe this awesome dessert is just dressed-up ice cream sandwiches. "For my son's birthday party, I decorated it with race cars and checkered flags because he's a big racing fan," recalls Jody Koerber of Caledonia, Wisconsin. "It was a huge success!"

    This is delicious, but costly to make. I had $14.00 into it!

    Awesome in looks, taste, and simplicity! If you like a little more chocolate, then I would also recommend a little extra hot fudge topping, but it tastes great the way it is! I highly recommend this!
