Hello sweet friends,
I hope your summer is going well and that it’s full of sweet moments. Summer time seems to be about the extra calories, well at least it seems that way around here! Ice cream and cocktails are on the menu more often when it’s hot. Sweet summer treats are a fun thing to share with a crowd too. Yesterday, I threw together a quick Oreo ice cream cake for my son’s birthday. We went to my friend’s house for some swimming and I brought along the cake because well, birthdays are for celebrating, right? It wasn’t the first time that I have made one of these easy ice cream cakes and it certainly won’t be the last.
While we are on the topic of awesome summer desserts, we tried this place called Smoosh last week. It was ah-mazing! Basically, they make a glorified ice cream cookie sandwich. You pick your type of cookie, ice cream and then you add in a topping or two. It was so yummy. I will be making my own version at home very soon.

And finally, the easiest summer dessert you will ever make. It only has 3 ingredients. I have made variations using chocolate and/or caramel syrup, crushed candy bars instead of Oreos and you can even use different types of ice cream sandwiches. Layered Cool Whip and ice cream sandwiches are the main ingredients to create an easy peasy ice cream cake.
