SO my hubs birthday is in July… and July in AZ is HOT! There’s nothing better than ice cream cakes for those summer birthdays! If you remember last year I made him the oreo ice cream cake which is just as yummy.. and pretty much the same recipe. SmileI remember the first time I tried this cake at my cousins house and I was in heaven. I love these cakes because they are super easy… NO bake.. and you can pretty much use any candy bar you like.

My husband loves Milky Way’s so this year we decided to do the milky way version instead of the oreo ice cream cake.

Here’s what you’ll need for the Milky Way Ice Cream Cake:

  • Ice Cream Cake


    • 1 pkg. ice cream sandwiches (I used 10)
    • 1 tub Whipped Topping (cool whip)
    • 1/2 Jar Chocolate Fudge
    • 1/2 Jar Caramel Toping
    • 10 mini milky ways (or more..)
    • 8 mini snickers


    1. For the first layer you lay your ice cream sandwiches down in a 9x13 pan.
    2. Next spread a layer of caramel and chocolate. Then sprinkle the chopped candy bars across this layer. You can repeat this whole layer… but I was running out of ice cream sandwiches so I just did one layer.
    3. Next spread the cool whip over the first layer. Then top it all off with another layer of drizzled chocolate, caramel and milky ways/snickers.
    4. Cover and set in freezer for a few hours.

Easy and delicious ice cream cake dessert

Can you say YUMMY?!

    You are a lifesaver! I have a birthday party tomorrow and waited too long to order a cake because I was going to bake one, but when the temp rose to 93 again today I decided against it. Thank you!

    I’ve done the same thing, only chopped up peanut butter cups. You can use any candy, really. Now I want one again!
