Easy Ice Cream Cake
This summer we spent Ethan's birthday in Florida. I was so excited to make "his birthday cake." This is a certain cake that he loves and only gets on his birthday, even though his sweet mother had made him one before we left, he still had to have one on his birthday. This was my first year making his cake, it did not turn out anywhere near his standards. I was nervous about this happening so I had a back-up plan. It was this easy ice-cream cake. I knew it would be perfect for the hot days and comforting when we came in from the beach. It was a breeze to make and was delicious. Ethan had two birthday cakes on his special day, he even had a piece of each. Hopefully next year, I will have better luck with his cake and we can have this cake whenever we please in the summer because it was too good to not make again!

12 Ice Cream Sandwiches
16 oz container of Cool Whip
1 bag of your favorite Candy, I used Heath Bar Bits for Ethan
First, line your ice cream sandwiches on a platter, top with about half of the cool whip, sprinkle the candy, and drizzle the chocolate sauce on it.
Repeat for the top layer, remember to work quickly, this is ice cream, it will melt!
Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 1 hour to get firm and up to one week.
