I was looking for a dessert made with ice cream sandwiches. I had seen one somewhere. I found this one and believe it sounds like a keeper.
Turtle Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert
19 Ice Cream Sandwiches
1 12-ounce carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 16-ounce jar hot fudge topping
1 10-ounce jar butterscotch caramel or plain caramel topping
3/4 cup salted pecans chopped
12 pecan halves
1 milk, chocolate bar, optional
6-8 maraschino cherries, halved and drained, optional
Remove wrappers from 19 ice cream sandwiches. Place one whole and one half sandwich along a short side of an unbuttered 9-inch by 13-inch pan. Arrange 8 sandwiches in the opposite direction in the pan, spread half the whipped topping over the sandwiches.
Next, spoon caramel topping evenly over whipped topping. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Repeat layers with remaining ice cream sandwiches. Spoon hot fudge topping over sandwiches and top with remaining whipped topping.
Arrange pecan halves over top. Decorate with chocolate curls and cherries. Cover pan and freeze for several hours or overnight. Remove from freezer 20 minutes before serving. Cut into serving size pieces.
Makes 12-15 servings.
Can also be made for St. Patricks Day using Andes Mints instead of chocolate curls for decoration.
