Ice Cream Sandwich Cake & A GIVE AWAY

It's time to celebrate!!!

Last week I announced I had my 100th follower and

by the end of the week I was up to over 140!

Like everyone who blogs before me,
I didn't think anyone would read  my blog.

Thank you to all of you who have supported me
and commented and encouraged me.

I always tease my husband and tell him
I  am going to visit with my

Cyber Friends.

Truly you have been so much fun to get to know.

Blogging has been such an exciting adventure.

I owe it all to my fabulous sister Joni
Red Couch Recipes
who got me started blogging.
I told her I wanted to just be a guest on her
blog but she said, no I had to do my own.

Thanks Joni, you are the best.
Your blog has been so inspiring to me.
In honor of all of the wonderful bloggers
out there I decided to feature someone's recipe
that caught my eye.

I had a great time at
Kitchen Bouquet's Ice Cream Social.
Everything was mouthwatering,
this week I decided to be a COOKER,
not just a
 I gave into temptation from Beth at
Food As Art with her version of Duggar's Ice Cream Cake
click here to see her post.

The description is what hooked me in -
two layers of ice cream sandwiches with fudge,
 caramel sauce, and crushed candy bar in between,
topped with whipped topping and garnished
with additional candy bar and chocolate.

What sinfully delicious ingredient has been left out?

We headed right out and got everything we needed.

I enlisted the troops to help with unwrapping the
ice cream sandwiches and crushing the Skor bars.
I think that is one of the funnest jobs to smash the
candy bars.
Begin by placing one layer of ice cream bars on the bottom
of a 8x8 inch pan.  I used a slightly larger oblong ceramic
dish because it was so much prettier.  You can cut extra
sandwiches to fit your dish.  Mine used 5 across the bottom.

Next drizzle on fudge and caramel sauce and top with your
favorite candy bar.  We had Skor bars on hand so we used
them.  I used 2 1/2 bars in the center and only
about 1/4 C. sauce, otherwise it might get too sweet!

Top with another layer of ice cream sandwiches then cover
the whole thing with whipped topping or whipped cream.

Garnish with more candy bar and a drizzle of chocolate
don't use too much or it might get too sweet.

Place back in the freezer for a couple of hours to harden.

Use a sharp knife dipped in warm water to cut the cake.

My son-in-law took one bite and told his wife that he wanted
this for his birthday cake on his next birthday!

I would call that rave reviews. 

Some neighbors stopped by on a Sunday evening walk
 and we promised them some.  It was too hot to carry it
home so we drove it over later.  They weren't home.

Alas, my other daughter and her friend saw it in the
freezer and now there is nothing left!

Should'a grabbed a fork right then and there!
Ya snooze, ya lose!!


Yum, give this one a try.

Because it is summer and because I am an ice cream
fanatic, I have decided to give away
2 Quart Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker
that both Joni and I have blogged about.

(Photo off of Cuisinart's website.)

To qualify for the Ice Cream Maker you must be a
 follower or become a new follower of my blog and
leave me a comment telling me what

ice cream recipe

you would like
to make with your new ice cream maker!

The winner will be chosen randomly and will
be contacted by e-mail to get your mailing address
so that you can receive your ice cream
maker before summer ends.
Your e-mail must be visible on your blog
or given in your comments so that you
can be contacted.

(Not that you can't make it during other seasons!)

I would love to feature the winner's ice cream
recipe on this blog.

This contest will end August 1, 2010.

I will be posting this with:


Since I have well exceeded 200 Followers
now, I will be giving away
Ice Cream Makers!!

Thanks everyone for your incredible support.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Wow! That cake looks incedible. I am so making one. I've wanted an ice cream maker for some tine now. I really want to make my own ice cream sandwiches. I've got a recipe...somewhere. And I always see recipes for Rocky Road ice cream that I'd love to try. Congrats on all the followers!

    rachel.beasley AT

  2. Yummy recipe. I have had a version of it before but this looks so good. I would make vanilla ice cream and add some seasonal fresh fruit. We have made peach ice cream many times here in Georgia since we are the Peach State.

  3. I'm a brand new follower! Our Cuisinart ice cream freezer bit the dust this year :( I haven't had the cash to replace it so I'm crossin' my fingers that I'll get this shiny new 2 qt one!!!
    I would definately make vanilla ice cream with a little greek yogurt. It would be great with a few fresh strawberries or peaches mixed in. mmm I can taste it now.
    themakfamily at aol dot com

  4. Wow, Congratulations on your flock of followers! I'm much more than a follower, I am a fan and you're right, thanks to Joni, who introduced you to me. Your blog is just delicious and so chocolatty!

    I want to make Buttermilk-Peach ice cream, and I have to make all my own because of sugar issues. I have found that I can control my blood-sugar best when I use liquid this fabulous freezer can possibly lengthen my life!

    Eating with my eyes, your ice-cream sandwich cake is divine!
    Thanks for all the fun's a treat following along!

Good luck everyone're going to love the Cuisinart! Joni

  6. What a great giveaway! I'd love a bigger ice cream maker. I would make my mother-in-law's lime ice cream. The recipe makes too much for my small cuisinart so I always have to 1/3 the recipe. Fingers crossed!!!

  35. Yum! So good thanks for making us this wonderful treat. My mom said it was the best treat she has had all year! We love you!

  36. You had me at the ice cream sandwiches!!!



  37. Jackie I love you and your amazing blog with it's delicious recipes :) my mom has this amazing rootbeer ice cream recipe I'd like to try. Keep up the amazing job!

  38. Good morning! I am a "weak in the knees hungry" FOLLOWER of your blog. This recipe looks devine (is it low calorie? = ) )). If I win the ice cream maker, I'll first make peach ice cream. It's such a delicious memory from my childhood.

    I'm heading toward my 100th follower and am amazed at how much I'm enjoying them and blogging.


  39. That ice cream dessert looks wonderful!!
    And, so does the ice cream maker! I would definitely make a chocolate ice cream of some sort. My kids think making homemade ice cream is so fun.
    Here's a quick and easy recipe: Your favorite carbonated drink (I used orange crush) and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. Mix your milk with some of the drink to get it incorporated. Put in the maker and add more of the drink (to the line). Make according to directions with the machine. Enjoy!!

  40. wow, that does look nice! Thanks for stopping by my site!

  41. Hi, new to your blog. Love it! If I won, it would have to be vanilla bean chocolate chip....thanks for hosting the giveaway! Karen

  42. I just finished breakfast and I am already hungry again after seeing this post!!

    I think one of my favorites is home made peach ice cream. My grandpa used to have a peach orchard, so it brings back good memories!

  43. What a great giveway! I would definately make a country vanilla...I know it sounds so simple but it is my husbands absolute favorite and I like how you have the option to pile on the toppings!! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day...I now have a new "cyber friend" as you would say ;)

  44. OMGOSH! Too funny! I made this same recipe last week for my son's birthday cake! (well, we switched the Butterfingers for toffee chips because a friend at the party has nut allergies). It is DELICIOUS!

    Great give-away. I popped over from Beauty & bedlam and now I'm following your blog :)
    I'm an icecream junkie, so any recipe will make me happy :)

  45. This dish looks so fun to put together, and DELICIOUS! I am now a Follower:)
    You have a great blog here, and I'm with you...blogging is so much fun and you "meet" the nicest people!

    Congrats on reaching 100 followers, but looks like you'll be at 200 pretty soon!

    I would like to make fresh fruit ice cream!

  46. 'Grandma Jackie'
    Thanks for coming back! We have recently had 3 funerals and a wedding in our family which have left us with some joys and challenges this summer, so I haven't blogging like I have in the past and feel a huge void of my beautiful cyber friends. You meet the most incredible people in this blogging neighborhood who you truly come to care about.
    Your blog is beautiful and filled with goodness from top to bottom!
    I would love to win an ice cream maker and all our own little ones would like it too! :-)
    Right now I would make a fresh raspberry ice cream and then as soon as the peaches come on a yummy peach ice cream. Oooo the possibilities!
    Your ice cream sandwich cake looks so yummy and I can't wait to try it out on our gang! Maybe at Bear Lake at the condo soon:)
    I am going to make your Piggy Trough for our Young Single Adults in our stake at a upcoming activity! LOVED IT! They will too!

  47. Thanks for commenting on my blog (Kitschy Suburbia) - I took a look and had to return the favor! It's always nice to find new blogs. I know I would start with vanilla - how can you go wrong with vanilla?! But then the second would be butter pecan - my fave!!! I'll definitely be back after I roam your blog for a little while.

  48. The cake looks (and probably tastes) amazing! I already bookmarked the recipe. I'm afraid I can't enter your giveaway (even though I really want an ice cream maker), because I'm from Europe and american appliances don't work here because of the different voltage :(

  49. OH MY HEAVENS!!!! That looks SO GOOD!! I am a new follower! Congrats on your 100+ followers!! I hope to be there someday too! :)

    I am thinking I would like to make Blueberry Cheesecake...or Root beer!

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my earrings. I have MANY MORE to look at in my etsy shop. There is a tab on my blog page that displays my shop. :) Thank you so much for stopping by :)

  50. Forget the diet I am so wanting that ice cream maker. And if I am going to win I will try to experiment a lot of flavor. But for a first timeer I would love to make an ice cream out from guacamole, strawberry, and mangoes. That's a lot!
    Congratulations on your following and I am following now too. Here is my email address

  51. I am going to follow you right now! Every July I borrow my MIL ice cream maker to make ice cream on the 4th. I would make a lot more ice cream if I had a countertop maker. Yumm...I would try all and any recipes with peanut butter.

  52. Um WOW! I must make this. It looks absolutely divine! I am now a follower! I would make anything combined with chocolate (mint, peanut butter, nuts, whatever)
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. It's always fun to meet someone new.

  53. Wow! I think I gained 10 pounds just looking at the pictures but I think I may have to give it a try sometime, it looks beyond wonderful!

    I'm a new follower and I would like to make ice creams with fresh fruit in them. :)

  54. Oh my pick me Queen Jacqueline! I have been debating about an actual ice cream maker or the ice cream maker attachment for the kitchen aids... I am now a follower (i thought i was before but I am now for sure)

    I would make chocolate ice cream with york patties that would be served in something beautiful from either taipan or tjmaxx :)

    plus i am eating for two now so i can use all the ice cream that machine could make for me!

  55. Thanks for visiting my blog and letting me know about your giveaway! I'm also thrilled to be a new follower and to read your older posts...I'm such a foodie wannabe!

    Anyway, this is my absolute most favourite homemade ice cream recipe, Toasted Almond, Cherry, Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream (recipe at I use the fact that it has raw eggs as an excuse NOT to share it with the kids (=

    tltrim444 AT

  56. the husband and i have been going through ice cream like crazy, so this would help with out budget ;)
    i'm obsessed with all things smores, so i'd make this recipe:,1613,142191-247199,00.html

  57. I want to try that cake yummy and I would try all different combinations of ice cream all my kids would love it!

  58. I have been following your blog for quite a while now, but just made it official!!

    I have been growing rhubarb and strawberries to make pie, but I would love to try making Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream from a recipe that I recently came across...

  59. Your recipes look so good. I just may have to try that ice cream cake. Soooooo yummy.

    I would love to be entered in your giveaway for the ice cream maker. What a treat that would be. I would make my mother's recipe for Banana ice cream. I always thought it was the best in the world.

    Congratulations on reaching such a great milestone with your blog.

    Yes, I am a follower. Hugs, Marty

  60. I would love to win the Ice Cream maker!!! I am having a Mango thing this summer, can't get enough of them. I would love to try and make my own mango ice cream!! Thanks for the chance.

  61. oh man I have always wanted an ice cream maker!!! I'm pretty boring, but I think that the first thing that I would make would be plain old vanilla ice cream. My kiddos go bananas over ice cream floats during the summertime, and I'm pretty sure that they would be that much more amazing made with homemade vanilla ice cream! Oh Yum!!


  62. Your blog is my new obsession! You have so many amazing recipe ideas, I don't have enough parties and get-togethers to show them off at. So far, all of your recipes have been a hit. Thanks for the fabulous ideas! I will definitely be making the icecream sandwich cake for Sunday dinner- I can't wait!

    If I had an ice cream maker (I used to have one, but I loaned it out years ago and haven't seen it since), first thing I would make is your homemade root beer ice cream. My mouth was watering as I read the recipe. Then I'd try my mom's super yummy homemade apricot sherbet.

  63. This ice cream maker is just what I've been wanting!! Oh, I'm going to cross everything and hope and hope. :-) I would make fresh peach ice cream first, then with fresh strawberries and then a sorbet. So many thoughts running through my mind right now ~

    This chocolate dessert looks so tempting! Thanks for sharing the recipe and the opportunity to win.

    Have a blessed week ~

  64. I was so excited that I forgot to mention that I'm a follower! :-)

  65. I'm your 180th follower! =) I would make honey cinnamon ice cream with the ice cream maker. It is so very delicious! haleyleann (at) sbcglobal (dot) net

  66. 2 cups milk
    2/3 cups cream
    3 egg yolks
    3/4 cups sugar
    1 cup fresh lavender blossoms

    Combine milk, cream, and lavender blossoms in a large sauce pan. Gently warm mixture on medium heat until foamy. In a separate bowl mix eggs until blended & thick. Add sugar to eggs, stirring well. Strain milk/cream, remove lavender if desired. Add 1/2 cup of warm milk/cream mix to eggs, Blend. Add the rest of milk/cream mix to egg mix in the sauce pan. Cool completely in refrigerator, before placing mixture in an ice cream maker!

    I would love to make this!!!!!!!!!

    andreapaetkau at gmail dot com

  68. Hi, new follower and I think I would like to attempt making an ice cream with coconut and almonds. There are so many possibilities though it would be hard to decide- I thin I would go wild!

  69. I recently made coconut and lime granita just in the freezer. I love those flavors and I think for summer a coconut icecream would be fantastic! Think pina colada slushies. MMMMM

    Thanks for stopping by the dinner for two project. Great blog. Those souther sliders look super tasty.

    don't know if I am eligible for your give away as I live in the UK but just in case: notwhatiseem.evenstar at

  70. I'm your newest follower!

    I would make Pumpkin Ice Cream, the recipe is over at Williams Sonoma.

    Thanks for stopping over at Barefoot by the Sea! I've got a couple of giveaways going on, be sure to check them out too!

    BTW - the sliders look delish!

  71. Beautiful photos and yummy recipes! Congrats on all your followers and sponsoring a great giveaway. Found a recipe for ice cream that I think looks GOOD - would love to win! Thanks J!

    Coffee Ice Cream with Espresso Brittle

    2 cups heavy cream
    2 cups milk
    1/2 cup coffee beans roasted for 10 minutes at 400°F and crushed
    8 egg yolks
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 recipe Espresso Brittle (below)

    In a medium saucepan, heat the cream, milk, and crushed coffee beans to just under a boil. Remove from the heat and let stand at least 1 hour for the beans to infuse their flavor. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar. Pour the cream mixture into the egg yolks, whisking until well blended.

    Return this mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens slightly, enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Strain the custard through a fine mesh sieve and chill. Freeze in an ice-cream maker following the manufacturer's instructions. When frozen but still soft, transfer the ice cream to a stainless-steel bowl and swirl in the chopped brittle with a spatula. Cover the ice cream tightly with plastic wrap and freeze. Garnish with the remaining shards of brittle, when serving, if you like.

    Espresso Brittle
    Yields about 1 cup.

    1 cup sugar
    1/4 cup water
    2 Tbs. espresso beans, crushed with a rolling pin or chopped in a food processor to medium-fine crumbs
    1 oz. (2 Tbs.) butter
    Pinch salt

    Line a baking sheet with kitchen parchment and spray the parchment with nonstick cooking spray or grease it lightly. In a medium heavy-based saucepan, combine the sugar and water.

    Heat over high heat, swirling the pot occasionally (don't stir it) for even color, until it turns light amber. Add the crushed espresso beans (don't worry if the sugar seems to foam), swirl them around in the caramel, and continue to cook until the caramel turns brown. Remove the pan from the heat. Carefully whisk in the butter and salt (the butter will sputter).

    Immediately pour the brittle onto the prepared baking sheet, quickly tilting the baking sheet to get the brittle to flow into a thin layer (be careful -- the brittle is very hot). As it cools and slows down, use a metal spatula to spread it into an even thinner layer. Let cool. Chop two-thirds of the cooled brittle into small pieces by sealing it in a plastic bag and smashing it with a mallet or rolling pin. Sift the crumbs in a strainer if you don't want the powder. Break the remaining brittle into shards and use them to garnish bowls of the ice cream.

  81. Congratulations on your beautiful blog and the milestone you've reached here.
    It's funny, I opened up the comment page and then saw the Gazebo post below and got so caught up in that I almost forgot to leave a comment here!
    This ice cream sandwich cake looks absolutely delicious! I am going to make it as I know my kids will devour it! What a great treat for a hot summer day.

    Thank you for inviting me to enter your giveaway...of course I would love to win and with a large family we'd put this to much use!

    Congratulations again!


  82. We used a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker during my NEWSTART Cooking classes as mentioned in my last two posts.

    So, I would love to win in this giveaway!

  83. Watermelon-cranberry sherbet, mango-rhubarb sherbet, or Vanilla Heath/kitkat ice cream. Who knows what combinations I could try! Winning the Cuisinart Ice cream maker would be awesome! I am definitely a follower of your blog. I heard about your fun idea with shirts and bleach pens; could you please do a how to page on that and some possible designs?

  84. That looks AMAZING! I will have to try looks like death by chocolate lol. If I win the ice cream maker I will probably make a reeses cup ice cream with fudge syrup. I love chocolate.

  85. ..a new follower!! yippie!
    WOW, those pictures in the post make me wanna get up and find some chocolate asap! lol..not only do I love chocolate but I love mango's as well!

    If I win the ice cream maker, I would love to make this recipe!



  86. yummy ice cream. If I won I would love to make a chocolate chip icecream sandwhich. I haven't had one in a long time.

  87. wow, I would love to win this. I don't have a recipe for ice cream so I wouls love to "borrow" one of yours!!

  88. Would love to have a piece of your ice cream sandwich cake right now.

    I am a follower and would love to make a chocolate ice cream recipe I have saved for years and have not done it. Great giveaway.

  89. Jacqueline-Congratulations!! I know we shouldn't count, but it is nice to know that someone is reading what we write :)!!! Great giveaway--and yes, I have been a follower for a long time!

  90. I forgot--I have a lemon ice in mind :)

  91. Oh wow...this looks amazing! I'd give anything for a bite right now! Reminds me a lot of a Dairy Queen ice cream cake I had once...

  92. Congratulations on almost 200 hundred now.. wow. and a second ice cream maker to give away. I love your blog... will that put me closer in the running ;)??? lol

  93. I would love to make strawberry ice cream or cherry vanilla. When I was a kid we always got the best strawberry and cherry vanilla ice cream at the local ice cream stand. I haven't been able to find anything at the grocery store that compares.

  94. This ice cream cake looks incredibly yummy! Just like all of the wonderfully beautiful desserts you make.

    If I had a new ice cream maker I would make Cherry Cream Cheese Crunch Ice Cream! Doesn't it sound delicious? I have the cutest freind named Jackie who could help me with this new flavor if I got stuck!!!

  97. Hello!
    That recipe looks super delicious! If I had my own ice cream maker I would want to try this blackberry and red wine sorbet recipe. Yum!

  98. I didn't follow you just to enter your giveaway, ladybug...but now that I see what you're giving away I am entering. My daughter loves ice cream & has just learned she cannot have sugar any longer. So I would love this to make special ice creams just for her (& I don't think it will hurt the rest of us either). Just wonderful. xx's

  99. I am a new follower and would make Carob Pecan Ice Cream if I won the ice cream maker. As a new diabetic I can't use the store-bought kind any more.

  100. Jackie! I have started on a quest {inspired by you} to become more fabulously domestic! After ruining the mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving, I figured the best way to redeem myself would be to start with making the things I love the most.. DESSERTS! I have an incredible secret recipe for a delicious Lemon ice cream with a blueberry topping..! The perfect flavor to end the summer! So pick me pick me!!

  101. OMG! I think I just gained 10 pounds reading this post! the recipe is amazing! Yum!

    I am your latest follower. I had to after just seeing your beautiful fun tablescape! LOL

    thanks for the chance to win!!

  102. I would love to learn how to make homemade ice cream!

  103. I, too, am an ice cream fanatic(much to the shagrin of my thighs) and just became your newest follower! I found you through Tatertots & Jello today and LOVE your blog already.
    If I were to win, and Im PRAYING I do, the first recipe Id be trying out would be blackberry cheesecake ice cream- made using fresh blackberries from my parents backyard! Im hungry just thinking about it:)So pick me, pick me!:)(Pretty please)

  104. Congrats on having so many followers! All of your recipes are delicious! Thank you for sharing. I would love to make either coconut ice cream or a Chocolate & Reece's peanut butter cups one. YUM!

  105. Hello Jacqueline,

    Congratulations on your 200+ followers! You have a fantastic blog so I am not at all surprised!

    Awesome giveaway! I have never made ice cream, but I am sure somewhere in my vast collections of recipes there are some for ice cream. If I won I would like to make mango, peach or blueberry ice cream.

    I saved the recipe for the Ice Cream Sandwich Cake so I can make it one weekend soon. My family will love it. I thought I was a follower but realized I was subscribed through Google Reader so I signed up as a follower.

    Thank you!

  107. Mmmmm, how could you not follow when you open to a cake like that! It looks incredible! I would make cinnamon ice cream. Of course you have to have peach cobbler to go with it too. I would love to get one of these as my kids love ice cream and it is so fun to make. My maker is on it's last legs. You have to yell over it to have a conversation.

  108. Yummy on all the recipes...I would try to make Rocky Road. Just add a few nuts & marshmellows, my mouth is watering just thinking of it! I am a follower & would love to win....
    Thanks for the chance,

  110. This is going to be on the menu this weekend, looks yummy! Loving the recipes on your blog, come visit me over at GrannyMountain!

  111. Beautiful ice cream cake- I love things that are easy and delicious too. I think that pineapple ice cream is what I'm wanting right now, and that ice cream maker would come in handy. I've become a follower too, so I won't miss any deliciousness!

  112. Jacqueline, I could lick my computer screen! This has to get the decedence award! This over-the-top dessert has it all! And it's chocolate content alone makes it worth the caloric overload! YUMMY!
    What a generous and graet giveaway. I have won several giveaways lately, and would love to have this one too, but I 'll sit this giveaway out... just to spread the giveaway wealth around a bit.

    I'm having family from out of town to visit next week. I'm making your great dessert!

  113. Jacqueline, this dessert looks fabulous! I would love to win the ice cream maker--if I did I would make something with chocolate and peanut butter, or peppermint, or maybe both! I am your newest follower, and I think you are in the 200's now! Linda

  114. Wow, Jacqueline, your blog is just amazing! I found you through Foodie Friday - got hooked on those sliders - spent the afternoon in your beautiful gardens - and have been drooling at your sidebar desserts all day long!

    And now this! Well, I love peppermint ice crean, which is hard to find, so that might be something to try - although I love oreo ice cream too!

    Let's see if I win this first, then I'll find an amasing recipe to share! (smile)

  118. I'm a new follower! I would make peach ice cream from the freshest peaches I could find, then I would make vanilla ice cream and use a vanilla bean to get that wonderful flavor! Yum...homemade ice cream!!!

  119. I'm a registered new follower, but have been following your blog from the beginning. I love all your fun ideas, trips, recipes, and decorations. I thank Tatti for helping connect me with your blog. I also love her polka dot pantry blog. If I won the cuisinart ice cream maker I would love to make fresh strawberry ice cream! Nothing is better than fresh strawberry ice cream on a hot summer day.

  120. I found your blog while looking for an ice cream sandwich cake happy to find you! I'm "creating" this cake for my son's golden birthday on the 13th! If I happen to win the icecream maker I would definitely try a recipe my friend and her children have been raving about: Avocado Icecream! Can you imagine? I love avocadoes. Thanks for you blog! Vesta
