After stumbling across this how-to video of this recipe, I just had to make it.
It was a huge hit! It's so simple too.
After reading the reviews, I doubled the filling mixture so there was enough to add to the top. I used alot more cool whip to frost it before freezing. Right before I cut it to serve, coated it in more crushed Oreos.
Oreo Fudge and Ice Cream Cake
1/2 cup hot fudge ice-cream topping
1 (8 ounce) tub cool whip, thawed
1 (4 oz) pkg instant chocolate pudding
8 Oreos, crushed
12 vanilla ice-cream sandwiches, unwrapped
Pour fudge topping into a medium bowl. Add 1 cup of the whipped topping; stir with wire whisk until well blended. Add dry pudding mix; stir 2 minutes or until well blended. Gently stir in chopped cookies; set aside.
Arrange 4 of the ice cream sandwiches, side-by-side on a 24-inch piece of foil; top with half of the whipped topping mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining 4 ice cream sandwiches. Frost top and sides of dessert with remaining whipped topping. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to loosely seal packet.
Freeze at least 4 hours before serving. Store leftovers in freezer.
