In today’s post: When you need a super easy summer dessert, you can put together this peanut butter ice cream sandwich cake in minutes!
I love baking. It’s actually one of my very favorite things to do. But who wants to turn the oven on during the hottest days of the summer? No one, that’s who.
Today’s recipe is the perfect dessert for summer! It’s quick and easy to put together, cold and creamy, and tastes delicious!
It’s actually pretty perfect for any time of year, and the fact that you can make it in under 10 minutes makes it even better!
I’ll admit: the first time I had an ice cream sandwich cake I wasn’t expecting to be impressed. After all, ice cream sandwiches have never been my go-to for a really great frozen dessert.
But when you layer humble ice cream sandwiches with a chocolate peanut butter whipped cream and then top the entire thing with fudge and Reese’s pieces, things start to get REALLY GOOD. Like much-much-better-than-I-expected-GOOD.
