This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Little Debbie®. As always, all opinions are my own.
There are just certain foods that evoke childhood memories. For me it is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. At our school the only kids who could eat hot lunch at school were the kids who took the bus. I walked to school so I had to bring my lunch that my mother packed for me. And in that sack lunch there was always a pb & j sandwich. Were you a sack lunch kid too
If you were, you know that the best part of the sack lunch was not the peanut butter & jelly sandwich. It is what was waiting for you after you finished your sandwich. A treat your mother had put in there for you! I bet for many of you it was a Little Debbie® treat!! What was your favorite? Maybe it was Little Debbie®Chocolate Marshmallow Pies or Little Debbie® Zebra Cakes. Or maybe, like me you were and are a Little Debbie® Nutty Bars fan! It’s a taste you never outgrow!
Now that I am all grown up and don’t have a sack lunch every day I have found a fun and delicious way to enjoy those Nutty Bars! I combined two of my childhood favorites – ice cream and Nutty Bars to create a yummy Nutty Bars Ice Cream Cake!
This is so easy to do it would be the perfect thing for the kids to make for you for Mother’s Day or make for your own mom to thank her for all those Little Debbie® treats in your lunch. No baking required and the kids are going to love it as much as mom is.
I made it in a bread pan. Be sure and line it with plastic wrap first. It will make it so much easier to get the cake out of the pan! After it is lined, place a layer of Nutty Bars on the bottom. Depending on the size of your pan you may need to cut one into smaller pieces. Put a layer of ice cream on top and then a layer of hot fudge and peanut butter.
Add another layer of Nutty Bars and more ice cream and then wrap it up in plastic wrap and place in freezer to harden.
Then all that is left to do is slice it up and serve it.
Bring back and enjoy those childhood food memories with this Nutty Bars Ice Cream Cake!
