Milky Way Ice Cream Cake

Nate's cute aunt invited us over for dinner last Saturday night, and I brought this dessert. Nate loves ice cream and milky ways are his favorite candy bar, so this recipe was a big hit with him. I saw the idea over at I Heart Naptime. This recipe comes together really quickly and is super easy.

10 ice cream sandwiches
1 tub cool whip, thawed
1 bag of snack sized milky way candy bars (you could totally do snickers or whatever candy bar you like)
1/2 jar of caramel topping
1/2 jar of chocolate topping

Arrange the ice cream sandwiches on the bottom of a 9x13" glass baking dish. You may have to cut some of the sandwiches to get them to fit. Heat up both the caramel and chocolate toppings so they are easy to drizzle. Drizzle 1/2 of caramel (a 1/4 of the jar) and 1/2 of the chocolate over the top of the ice cream sandwiches. Unwrap and chop up the milky way bars and sprinkle half of them over the ice cream sandwiches. Evenly cover the cake with the cool whip. Drizzle the remaining caramel and chocolate over the cool whip and top with the rest of the milky ways. Cover and freeze for a couple hours before serving. Enjoy!
