Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

When it comes to cooking, I am so incredibly thankful for my mother and future mother-in-law! These ladies know how to cook. I'm always asking them for new recipes...and they are always sending us home with extra food! :) We are super lucky to have such amazing parents! 
Yesterday we went over to Evan's parents house for Father's day. After cooking up a delicious Thanksgiving-esque lunch for everyone, his mother whipped out this amazing cake! This simple frozen dessert was a huge hit. It was delicious, decadent and quite impressive! This would be a perfect dessert to take to a summer cookout.

Who doesn't love a good ice cream sandwich? This was (and still is) probably my most favorite dessert growing up. We ALWAYS had them in the freezer. The best thing about this cake is you can change it up in so many different ways. Switch up the ice cream sandwich flavors, ice cream toppings, and use tons of different types of candy.
*Please excuse the photos, I had to use my cell phone. But you still get the idea of how incredibly delicious this cake was! :)

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake (Recipe adapted from Taste of Home)
17 miniature ice cream sandwiches, divided
1 jar (12 ounces) caramel ice cream topping
1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1/4 cup chocolate syrup
Arrange 14 ice cream sandwiches in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. dish. Cut remaining sandwiches in half lengthwise; fill in the spaces in the dish. (You could also create two layers of sandwiches with some extra caramel sauce in the middle!)
Spread with caramel and whipped topping. Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Cover and freeze for at least 45 minutes. Cut into squares.
