  • 12 (3.1 ounce) Ice cream sandwiches
  • ½ cup hot fudge divided
  • 1 (7.25 ounce) bottle Smucker's Chocolate Magic Shell
  • 2 candy bars cut into pieces (use your favorite!)


  • Line a cookie sheet with wax paper, parchment paper, or foil. You can also make the cake on a flat platter or loaf pan or any size pan that will accommodate your ice cream sandwiches.
  • Heat your hot fudge so it is a little thinner, but not burning hot.
  • You are going to make 2 different cakes.
  • Lay 3 ice cream sandwiches on the foil. Spread 1/4 of the hot fudge on the 3 sandwiches. Place 3 more ice cream sandwiches on top of the fudge.
  • Follow the instructions on Smucker's Magic Shell. Once it is warmed and ready pour half of the bottle over your ice cream sandwiches.
  • Spread it around with a knife. Try your best to get the magic shell on the edges also.
  • Place your cut up candy bars in the middle of the cake and drizzle a little magic shell over the candy bars so they stay in place.
  • Make another cake just like the first on your cookie sheet.
  • Once both cakes are done, stick them in your freezer for about 20 minutes or until you are ready to serve.


If you need to leave them over night, make sure you cover them with saran wrap. I doubled the recipe and made 4 different cakes. I used Snickers, Recess, Milky Way, and Kit Kat. With the Snickers and Milky Way cake I added caramel in the middle and it was SO good!
