Ice Cream Cake Trifle

Monday, November 16, 2009

(NOTE from Lara:  This is my cousin Trish's first post ever!  Let's give her a warm welcome to the Recipe Shoebox and to the world of blogging.  They've made this divine dessert for our family before and it was as beautiful as it was sinfully delicious!)

Ice cream sandwiches
caramel topping
hot fudge topping
crushed almonds (actually, I prefer Heath Candy bars here)
whipped cream

(Try out different toppings, nuts or candies to determine your own favorite variation on this dessert)!

This layered dessert can be assembled in a trifle bowl or a 9x13 dish depending on how you'd like to see it displayed ( I suggest using glass so that you can show off the pretty layers)!

Begin by using the ice cream sandwiches as your first layer. Fit them closely and tight, cut to fit if needed.

Cover that layer with whipped cream and drizzle with caramel topping.

Sprinkle crushed almonds, and then top that with another layer of ice cream sandwiches and whipped cream, only this time drizzle with hot fudge before sprinkling the almonds. Continue to layer in this manner until you run out of room or ingredients!

Put in freezer to set up until ready to slice and serve serve... don't eat too much, it can be addicting ;-)

Oh, I love this stuff! Unfortunately, I don't have a trifle bowl. I do have a cake stand/punch bowl. That wouldn't be overkill would it?! Thanks for sharing, Trish!

I'm excited to post more in the future, but I can't take credit for this. It was posted under my name, but the recipe find, the hard work, and the presentation all belong to my husband. I have a new baby to keep me busy, and it seems that Aaron is able to spend more time in the kitchen than I am!

Aaron saw this recipe for the first time in the break room while working a long shift (food network). The original recipe is made in a 9x13 and served as small cut out squares. We just thought it would be fun to turn it into a trifle.
