Recipe: Cookie Crumble Freezer Cake

Mrs. Fields Secrets

Another in our series of no-bake summer-friendly cookie desserts, this freezer cake is easy to create and can incorporate your favorite cookie flavors. Make it ahead of time, keep it in the freezer, and bring it out just in time to wow your crowd. Absolutely no preheating of an oven required.

Cookie Crumble Freezer Cake
24 cookies (chocolate chip works great)
1/2 cup hot fudge sauce + 1/4 cup more for garnish
16 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions
Line a bread loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving a generous overlap on the sides. Break the cookies into large crumbles in a bowl and set aside. Heat the hot fudge 10 seconds at a time in a microwave-safe dish, until spreadable but not hot. Place the whipped topping in a large mixing bowl and fold the hot fudge into it carefully until it is fully combined and light brown in color. Spoon an even layer of the mixture into the loaf pan, then top it with a layer of cookie crumbles, repeating the process until you have three full layers of whipped topping and cookies, leaving a handful of cookie crumbles for garnish. Fold the excess plastic wrap over the pan and press gently with your hands to compress and push out any air bubbles. Place in the freezer for at least six hours or overnight. Before serving, open the plastic wrap and gently use it to lift the cake out of the pan, then invert it onto a serving platter. Drizzle hot fudge and the remaining cookie crumbles on top before serving.

Top Ten Road Trip Must-Haves

Hitting the open road this summer? You’ll want to take some of our best tips with you for ultimate cruising pleasure.

1. Download our Best Road Trip Games and keep a copy in the glove compartment at all times. The best way to diffuse tension on hour seven is with a game that gets everybody laughing and thinking.

2. Have you started using the Waze app yet? It keeps you apprised of real-time traffic and slow-downs and suggests alternate routes to get you where you need to go as quick as you can.

3. Stock a cooler with a range of great snacks. Gas station nachos are great (are they?), but you don’t want to rely on them to keep you satisfied. A mix of fruits, nuts, cheese, dried meats and some sweets will give you an easy range of options to suit your cravings.

4. Keep lots of water in the car, more than you think you’ll need. Travel is dehydrating, and in the event that you get delayed or sidetracked, you’ll have plenty on hand.

5.  Stop for scenic outlooks. Getting out, stretching your legs, and taking a few selfies is a great way to keep travelers happy. Plus, you’ll see vistas and views that you’d otherwise miss!

6. Keep a map or atlas on hand. In the event that your cell phone dies or the GPS can’t find a signal, having a map with you means peace of mind.

7. Ask locals where to eat. If you’re stopping for a meal, forego the fast food chains and find out what the locals like. Use apps like Yelp or simply ask the person filling up next to you. It could lead you to great spots only the locals know!

8. Travel with cookies. A tin of Mrs. Fields cookies travels well anywhere you go, and the cookies are individually wrapped to keep them fresh mile after mile!

9. Invest in good sunglasses. Polarized lenses will keep your eyes protected and relaxed all day long, keeping glares and headaches far away.

10. Break long trips down into smaller pieces. Avoid “Are we there yet?” by making smaller check points along the way.

Recipe: Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Mrs. Fields Secrets Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

How do you answer a craving for cake in the summer without preheating the oven? This cake is the answer. Built from a tower of criss-crossed ice cream sandwiches, this cake stands tall and square and ready to satisfy your sweet tooth without any baking required. Plus, you can customize it any which way with your favorite flavored ice cream sandwiches to make it entirely your own! (Plus, it’s pretty!)

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

12 ice cream sandwiches
1 carton whipped topping
peanut butter sundae syrup
chocolate magic shell topping

Directions
Lay three ice cream sandwiches on a freezer-safe serving plate to form a square. Drizzle a little peanut butter syrup across the top to serve as a binding agent, then layer three more on top in the opposite direction. Repeat the process until you have four layers and a complete cube. Next, frost the cake with the whipped topping and freeze again for about 20-30 minutes, or until whipped topping becomes firm. Finally, drizzle a generous amount of peanut butter and magic shell syrup all over the cake, allowing some to run down the sides. Freeze again before serving.

Here’s a peek at the pre-frosted cake:
