Next, drizzle 1/3 cup caramel sauce over the ice cream sandwich layer and sprinkle with 1/3 cup chopped pecans.

Layer the remaining ice cream sandwiches over the pecan layer, cutting sandwiches as necessary to make another even layer. Drizzle with 1/3 cup caramel sauce and sprinkle with 1/3 cup chopped pecans.

    perfect. It is delicious!

  7. Going to make the desert this afternoon. I think I’m going to toast the pecans. That shouldn’t make a difference because you are freezing them right?

  8. Just finished making this dessert and it looks Great. Taking to church Christmas party tomorrow. Should it slice ok straight out of freezer, I’m thinking yes. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.

    1. Hi Angela! I use Smucker’s, Mrs. Richardson’s or any good looking caramel sauce near the ice cream sundae section at the store. Enjoy!
