Cooking Thursday

August is coming to an end, but I'm hoping we still have some nice, warm days ahead of us. If we do, I have a great dessert that is perfect for hot days. It only has a few ingredients and is so easy to throw together. It looks pretty and tastes great!

Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

2 boxes ice cream sandwiches
12 ounces Cool Whip
2 bags Heath bits

Unwrap one box of ice cream sandwiched and place in a 9x13 pan.  You will have to cut a few in half so the whole pan is filled.  Spread half of the Cool Whip over the ice cream sandwiches, then sprinkle one bag of Heath bits over the Cool Whip.
Repeat layer and place in freezer for several hours or overnight. 

* This fills the pan nearly to the top, and the pieces can be cut thin.  They look pretty with the layers.  It makes a lot though and often if I'm not making it for a group, I half the recipe and make just one layer.  It still tastes good, it's just not so much!

Oh boy! Now, you know I have to make this when the kids are here; afraid I might indulge just a little too much. Looks so good. :)
