Ice Cream Sandwich Torte

Another really easy dessert that will make people think that you spent an obscene amount of hours in the kitchen. This is a Pampered Chef recipe that I have had for about 5 years and make it when I really want to pop a surprise at someone. I made it for a cooking club once and it won the night's prize. People came up to me and were asking what the crust was made out of and how on earth I got the layering so even. I couldn't help but laugh a little and told them the deep, sweet secret of this ice cream cake. It has wonderful presentation and can serve 20 people comfortably.

This cross-section is a little mutilated b/c I cut it when it had been out of the freezer for a while. But you get the idea.

Ice Cream Sandwich Torte
Place 6 ice cream sandwiches in a row on a large square platter (or bottom of cookie sheet lined with foil) to form a rectangle. Place in freezer.
In medium bowl mix:
1 4oz. pkg. chocolate instant pudding
2/3 c. milk
Then fold in to chocolate pudding mixture:
6 oz. Cool Whip, thawed
1 1/2 c. coarsely chopped Oreos
Remove platter from freezer and quickly spread chocolate mixture evenly over ice cream sandwiches. Place 6 more ice cream sandwiches over the filling. Frost with 6oz. Cool Whip (or more), covering all sides of torte. Sprinkle with bits of shaved chocolate or Oreos. Freeze at least 2 hours before serving.
To serve: Cut torte lengthwise in half. Then cut slices to desired width. Serves 20.
