  • 12 ice cream sandwiches
  • 16 oz Frozen whipped topping 2 containers, thawed (see note)
  • 5 oz instant vanilla pudding mix 140 grams
  • food coloring red, blue colors (optional)
  • sprinkles red, white & blue colors or chocolate/other


  • Set aside a rectangular serving platter or 9x13 pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the whipped topping and pudding mix together until combined.
  • Optional for colors: Spoon the mixture into three medium bowls of roughly equal amounts. To the first bowl, add two drops of red food coloring and mix until combined. To the second bowl, add two drops of blue food coloring and mix until combined.
  • Place 4 ice cream sandwiches on prepared serving platter, and spread the first color of whipped topping evenly on top.
  • Repeat with 4 more ice cream sandwiches and the second color of whipped topping.
  • Repeat with 4 more ice creams sandwiches and the third color of whipped topping.
  • Using a spatula, frost the top and sides with the rest of the whipped topping.
  • Decorate with sprinkles.
  • Cover with parchment or wax paper and freeze for at least 2 hours. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving to soften slightly.



  • Cool Whip is recommended for the best results. You can also substitute two cups of whipping cream whipped to stiff peaks (freeze an extra hour to firm up).
