1 package Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe-Joes or Candy Cane Oreos
1 jar of Hot Fudge
About 1.5 quarts Vanilla Ice Cream
1 container Cool Whip
Drizzle of Chocolate Syrup
A few small candy canes, crushed
Place Joe-Joes (or Oreos) in a ziploc bag and beat with a rolling pin or mallet until crushed. Dump them in a 13x9x2 inch pan and press down.
Warm up a jar of hot fudge (you can do low cal or reduced fat) as per jar instructions and spread over Oreos.
Then, spoon soft ice cream, your flavor of choice, until you reach your desired thickness. (I put about 1 inch) This works best with soft ice cream.
Don’t be afraid to press it down with your hands.
Spread a container of Cool Whip on for the next layer.
Add a drizzle of chocolate syrup and a few crushed candy canes.
Freeze overnight. Enjoy!
