My husband was talking about how he wanted an ice cream sandwich in the worst way. No money until payday but in searching this site for a comparable recipe, I came across this. I made this lighter using "light" whipped topping and sugar free CHEESECAKE instant pudding. I also used cinnamon graham cracker squares. My youngest child and I had the best time assembling these, sneaking little bites of the filling now and we really only got 12 "sandwiches. This recipe was cake and though it wasn't a true "ice cream sandwich", my husband enjoyed it all the same, as did the rest of us. Great summer treat recipe.

Everyone seemed to like these. I think if I were to make them again I'd add another small can of crushed pineapple for a stronger pineapple flavor. I liked biting into the little chunks of frozen pineapple. For 18 sandwiches, the filling is more like 3/4" thick. I would suggest going with the thicker filling rather than making more sandwiches with the recommended amount of filling. One taster suggested rolling the edges in coconut or toasted coconut for a more tropical flavor. They are a little time consuming to fill, but if you're not going to eat them all at once, it's probably worth it to have a stock of them in your freezer ready to eat.

I converted this into a chilled pie by putting the filling into a graham crumb crust I made then chilling in the fridge. It was really good - you could probably freeze the pie as well and eat it frozen - very easy and yummy!

I wrote this recipe and wanted to mention it tolerates mandarin oranges in place of the pineapple really well.

These were tasty. I ended up using all 3 packs of graham crackers in the box so I made a total of 24 sandwiches. Unfortunately they were higher in calories than I thought they would be even using light Cool Whip and reduced fat graham crackers. So everyone else gets to eat them but me.

i freeze on cookie sheet then wrap after they freeze. the graham crackers go soft after a week or so, either way you freeze. i dont know what would help that.

I tried these and they are great! I will try a chocolate version with sugar-free pudding and mini-chocolate chips. I did find that letting it chill a bit and was easier to spread and wrap. I was not so crazy about pineapple but no problem. a little extra vanilla and some cinnamon and a whole new flavor!

super easy, fast, and cheap- kids could totally help make these- flavor could be changed easily- going to try all chocolate version next time- could use low fat/ low cal versions of ingredients to easily make a light version
