5 minute Ice Cream Cake !

Good Morning everyone :)

PERFECT 5 MINUTE SUMMER DESSERT


I started a diet last week - did really well in fact - as of yesterday I was down 5 pounds.

So I did what anyone would do after such a great feat...................I ruined it.

But I HAD to.
Really I just HAD to.

Last week I came across an Ice Cream Sandwich cake ( you all probably know about these but I had never heard of them before ) made by Amee at REAL ADVICE GAL and now have seen a ton of them on Pinterest - so I decided to try my hand ................

First of all I love ice cream sandwiches................LOVE them - so this was going to be a win for me whatever I did.
For those of you that haven't tried it yet - TRY IT !!!!!!!!!!!

I made a mini one because it was just for John and myself - but having said that I still ate half of it - which means I had 2 of them.

Ok - here we go

You place 2  ( or 4 if you're a glutton - or as many as you need if you're having company ) on a dish


Then you slather it with whipped cream


Then place chopped walnuts on top of the whipped cream


Suzan yells out - John - have you seen the hammer?
John says - I thought you were making dessert?
Suzan says - I am - and I need the hammer please
John says -   WHAT THE HELL DO YOU NEED THE HAMMER FOR? - as he hands it to me
Suzan says - Thank you - now out of my way - in case it slips out of my hand and lands on your head.

I pounded the nuts.
You work with what you've go - YOU can use a kitchen mallet if you're that type of dessert maker - but tools are very interchangeable for me - I once plastered a wall using a kitchen spatula - I'm very resourceful like that lol


Then I placed 2 more sandwiches over the mix


and repeated the whipped cream and walnuts


for finish I drizzled some Hershey's chocolate sauce syrup over it


It took all of 5 minutes to make - ( if I had company over I would have worked on the presentation a little more - but I was drooling too much to worry about it just for the 2 of us )

You can put it in the fridge to " set " if you'd like
But we dug into this baby the second the syrup landed on top
and it was to D.I.E.


John says - That was absolutely fantastic !!!
Suzan says - Thank you !
John says - No - thank YOU
John says - Can't wait to see what you whip up with pliers !

And you know what?
Sometimes that's ok.


Only sometimes, mind you.
Now where are those pliers...................................

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone !
Hugs,
Big ones,
Me

  2. Yum, yum! I love ice cream sandwiches too. I've made something similar only I use caramel topping instead of chocolate. I'm trying to diet but blew it last night with apple pie ala mode. It was worth it. :-) Sometimes you have to live a little, yes?

  7. Suzan...that looks so yummy!! Congrats on losing 5lbs. I've been on Weight Watchers since the beginning of the year and have lost 25lbs. I have WW Ice Cream Sandwiches and I'm going to put a little whip cream on one and a little chocolate syrup to treat myself...because sometimes it is okay for a treat!!

  8. Looks delish!!! But I'm more interested in how you lost 5 lbs. I can exercise my butt off and the lbs. just sit right there.
