1/2 cup fudge ice cream topping, warmed
1 tub (8oz.) Cool Whip Whipped topping, thawed, divided
1 pkg. (4-serving size) Jell-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie filling
8 Oreo chocolate Sandwich Cookies
12 vanilla ice cream sandwiches
Pour the fudge topping into a medium bowl. Stir in 1 cup of the whipped topping with a wire whisk until it’s well blended. Add in the dry pudding mix; stir for about 2 minutes or until well blended. The consistency of fudge topping can vary depending on what brand you purchase. If your fudge topping mixture is too thick to spread easily, stir in 1/4 cup milk.
Chop the Oreo cookies roughly into chunks, they don’t have to be all the same size. Stir into the pudding mixture.
Arrange 4 of the ice cream sandwiches side by side on a flat dish or you can use a 24 X 12-inch piece of foil. Top with half of the pudding mixture. Repeat the layers.
Top the pudding mixture with the remaining 4 ice cream sandwiches. The layers create a neat striped effect when sliced.
Frost the top and sides with the remaining whipped topping. It doesn’t have to look perfect!
Freeze at least 4 hours before serving. You may loosely cover before placing in freezer. If using foil then bring up the foil sides. Double fold top and ends to loosely seal the packet. Let stand at room temperature to soften slightly before serving. Store leftovers in freezer. You may also drizzle the cake with extra chocolate fudge topping.
