He had a very special birthday due to him coming back home on the same day as his birthday! It was definitely a great day.
Anyways, I'll write more on that another time but here is a quick step by step instruction if you want to do it yourself for a special occasion or maybe just because!
What you will need:
1 bag of candy (any of your choice, but I used twix)
1 tub of cool whip (12 oz or 16 oz)
1 jar of carmel (12 oz I think)
12 ice cream sandwiches or if you want a larger cake, then use 24
1 8x11 pan (if using the 12 sandwiches, otherwise you'll need 9x13)
Well, you don't have to line your pan with foil but I did because I didn't want the sandwiches to stick to the bottom, but then again I have come to realize it's worse when it sticks to the foil, although it is easy to remove. So if you want to just skip the step of laying foil down, then that's fine too.
Then cut up your candy into smaller pieces so they are prepared to go. I think I only used maybe 7-8 of the bite size candies, so you won't need the full bag but that's a personal choice. This was a hard part to not eat any!
Lay them across in the pan
Layer the cool whip on top the sandwiches
Lay twix (or candy of choice) on top of it all
Then repeat the process one more time and make the top a bit more "appealing" and decorative. Then put foil on top of it and stick it in the freezer to enjoy later!
And here are a few from his birthday
Crazy to think he's 25… Even crazier to think I've known him since he was 16!
