5-Ingredient Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

5-Ingredient Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

This 5-Ingredient Ice Cream Sandwich Cake is a no-bake treat that's ready with just 10 minutes of prep.

It’s perfect for those of us who always seem to need a crowd-pleasing potluck dish to serve to family and friends, but we don’t like measuring specific ingredients, waiting for dough to rise, or turning on a hot oven.

Best of all, you only need a handful of basic supplies to pull together this easy dessert in minutes!


  • 24 ice cream sandwiches
  • 16 ounces frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip), thawed
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Caramel syrup
  • Topping of choice: such as mini M&M’s, sprinkles, crushed Oreo cookies, toffee bits, etc.


  1. Layer 12 ice cream sandwiches in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch dish. You will need to cut the last ice cream sandwich in half in order to get it to fit in the bottom of the dish.

  2. Allow to soften for a few minutes and then use a spoon to gently press the ice cream sandwiches down a little bit.

  3. Spread half of the whipped topping over the ice cream sandwiches. Drizzle with chocolate and caramel syrups. Sprinkle with desired toppings.

  4. Top with another layer of 12 ice cream sandwiches. Spread remaining whipped topping over the ice cream sandwiches. Drizzle with additional chocolate syrup and caramel syrup. Sprinkle with additional toppings.

  5. Freeze until ready to serve.

Tastes amazing. My coworker made this and I jumped online to see what all was in it. Hers had Heath bits and OMG… so good. Thanks for the recipe. My kiddos will go crazy for this!!

  • Try different flavors of ice cream sandwiches. In addition to the standard chocolate and vanilla, stores now sell Cookies & Cream ice cream sandwiches, Salted Caramel ice cream sandwiches, and Neopolitan ice cream sandwiches.
  • Use different syrups, such as a strawberry ice cream syrup for a fruity twist!
  • Mix up the toppings. I used mini M&M’s, crushed Oreos, Heath toffee bits, or chocolate chips.
  • Garnish with different colored sprinkles to match the upcoming holidays.
