*Recipe* Reese's Ice Cream Cake

For the last few years, we have lived places with really cool Bakeries.  Last year for Josh's birthday I got home a cake from Carlo's Bakeshop in Hoboken, home of Cake Boss.  This year, I really have no idea where the nearest bakery is so, last week I decided to actually make a birthday cake.  Honestly I am glad I did because this is on the of the best cake recipes ever, and it required zero baking.  You can customize it however you want and it could be turned into an Oreo Ice Cream Cake or delicious toppings you want.  I did change this one and made it a bit smaller for just the two of us but it still lasted a few days.  Also, the most important part, the birthday boy loved it!  


(I am using the original recipe here.  I used 12 Ice cream Sandwiches and made it 2 layers instead of 3)
-18 Vanilla ice cream sandwiches
-1 cup peanut butter
-about 12 normal sized Reese's cups, give or take to your taste.
-6 TBSP Caramel sauce 
-6 TBSP Hot Fudge sauce (again, both the sauces are to your taste)
-about 12 oz whipped topping like Cool Whip



-Place Peanut Butter in microwave safe bowl, microwave about 30 seconds or just until it starts to melt.
-Place 6 unwrapped ice cream sandwiches on a serving platter


-Spread half of the melted peanut butter over the sandwiches.

-chop up about 4 peanut butter cups and spread them over the peanut butter.

-Drizzle about 2 TBSP of hot fudge sauce over the peanut butter cups flowed by the same of the caramel.
-Arrange 6 more sandwiches on top.  Spread remaining peanut butter over the sandwiches followed by about 4 more chopped peanut butter cups and 2 TBSP of the sauces.

-Place the remaining sandwiches on top.
-Spread whipped topping over the top and sides of the cake.

-Put remaining chopped peanut butter cups on top of the cake.
-Drizzle remaining sauce on top of that.

Freeze cake until ready to serve and keep the leftovers frozen.

thanks to for this amazing recipe!
