Butterfinger Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

I made this dessert for Easter. I knew the weather was going to be in the 80's, so I thought something cold would be perfect and it hit the spot after our great meal.

There are lots of versions of this recipe, but I made up my own with butterfinger and hot fudge. You can use peanut butter, carmel, peanuts, peanut butter cups....there are many options!

Butterfinger Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert

18 ice cream sandwiches
1 large container of whipped topping
1 jar hot fudge topping
Butterfingers, crushed (I think I used 12 of the fun size bars...I used a lot for extra crunch and flavor)

In a 9X13 glass dish, put one layer of sandwiches. You will probably be able to use 6 whole and cut a few into halves and quarters. Don't worry about how it looks, just make sure the bottom is covered in sandwiches.

Top the sandwiches with half of the whipped topping. Drop all the hot fudge by spoonfuls over the whipped topping. Put a generous layer of crushed Butterfingers on the fudge. Repeat a layer of sandwiches and whipped topping; top dessert with crushed Butterfingers. **The pan will be very full** 

Freeze for at least 4 hours. Remove from freezer 20 minutes before serving.
