Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes


  • Sheet pan
  • Rubber spatula


  • 2 boxes of ice cream sandwiches (12 per box)
  • 16 oz Cool Whip
  • 8 oz Mini M&Ms
  • ½ cup vanilla confetti chips
  • ¼ cup chocolate sauce


  • Lay the first box of ice cream sandwiches horizontally 6 by 6 on the sheet pan.  
  • Lay the next box of ice cream sandwiches vertically on top of the horizontal sandwiches, again 6 by 6. 
  • Use the room temperature cool whip to spread over the top and sides of the sandwiches, as you would frosting a cake. 
  • Sprinkle with M&Ms and chips, pressing some into the side of the cake.
  • Drizzle with chocolate sauce.
  • Freeze for 2 hours then serve. 


Helpful Tip! 
Work quickly. Depending on the time of year and heat, you may need to freeze the sandwiches after layering them, before “frosting” them.
