Easy Ice Cream Cake

My husband doesn’t like cake (I know… I never thought I would marry a someone who doesn’t eat frosting).  But lucky for him, I like to be creative with his birthday “cakes.”  This year I made these ice cream cakes and they were a huge hit!  He was pleasantly surprised with how good these really were. If you have someone that doesn’t love cake, I suggest going this route!

  • 12 Ice cream sandwiches
  • 1/2 cup of hot fudge, divided
  • 1 (7.25 oz) Chocolate Smuckers Magic Shell
  • 2 of your favorite candy bars cut into small pieces


  1. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Heat your hot fudge so it is a little thinner. You don't want it burning hot.
  3. You are going to make 2 different cakes.
  4. Lay 3 ice cream sandwiches on the foil. Spread 1/4 of the hot fudge on the 3 sandwiches. Place 3 more ice cream sandwiches on top of the fudge.
  5. Follow the instructions on Smucker's Magic Shell. Once it is warmed and ready pour half of the bottle over your icecream sandwiches. Spread it around with a knife. Try your best to get the magic shell on the edges also.
  6. Place your cut up candy bars in the middle of the cake and drizzle a little magic shell over the candy bars so they stay in place.
  7. Make another cake just like the first on your cookie sheet.
  8. Once your cakes are done, stick them in your freezer until you are ready to eat them.
  9. If you need to leave them over night, make sure you cover them with saran wrap.
  10. I doubled the recipe and made 4 different cakes. I used Snickers, Recess, Milky Way, and Kit Kat. With the Snickers and Milky Way cake I added caramel in the middle and it was SO good!
