FatBoy Hot Fudge Sundae Dessert . . . A Summer Heat Buster!

I blame the HEAT!!!  It finally got to me….and I SNAPPED!!  How else do you explain the lapse in judgement it took to actually MAKE this dessert!?!?  I mean come on….FatBoy Sundaes!

It just seems so WRONG!  But trust me….it TASTES so RIGHT! :-)

OK….maybe it wasn’t ONLY the heat that had me going to the store to buy FatBoys to make this dessert (but that certainly was PART of it! It’s been HOT here!!!)  I was also impressed with how quick and easy it was to make! Perfect for when you need a crowd-pleasing dessert in a hurry! (A seemingly regular occurrence around here.)

After making (and eating) this…I think next time I will leave out the Sweetened Condensed Milk. It’s PLENTY sweet and rich without it! However, if you’re looking for an “extreme” dessert….go ahead and keep it in! All 5 of us who ate this last night commented on how RICH it was….but you didn’t see any left in our bowls either. :-)

FatBoy Hot Fudge Sundae Dessert

Adapted from the Norton Family Recipes blog

2 boxes of FatBoy ice cream sandwiches (6 to a box for a total of 12)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 jar hot fudge topping
1 jar caramel topping
1 container Cool Whip
Nuts (optional)
Cherries (optional)


Line a 9 x 13 pan with the FatBoy sandwiches.

Use a fork or skewer to poke holes in each sandwich. (I realize there are ALREADY holes in the FatBoys…but you need more!)

Pour 1 can of sweetened condensed milk over top of sandwiches.

Can you tell some of us don’t like nuts?  NOT ME! :-)


WE sure enjoyed it!  And now there is more than 1/2 a pan left to hopefully tide the men/boys over until I return from evo’12 Conference in Park City, Utah. I have to say…I am pretty excited! My first ever “blogger conference” where I will actually get to meet “in person” LOTS of OTHER bloggers from around the country!   Wish me luck! :-)

But don’t worry…I’ll be “back here” tomorrow with another post. I’m much too relentless to actually take a day off! The TRICKY part will be NEXT WEEK when I go away to Summer Camp! I can’t believe I’m going to Harley-Davidson headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to learn to ride a hog! Am I insane?? Don’t answer that.

But again, no worries….I will not let you down! If all else fails…I can post pictures and tell stories about how BAD I am at riding a motorcycle! Make sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter if you want to join in the summer camp fun!    :-)

    Also, was wondering why the condensed milk is crossed out in the list of ingredients, but then I see it as one of the direction steps below. Thanks!

      she said that it was rich enough with out it, but you could put it in if you wanted…. I think she was just showing where it went in the order of things in case you wanted to put it in.

    Good luck on learning to ride! My 50th birthday present to myself was taking a motorcycle riders course and getting my motorcycle endorsement! You can do it!!

    I’ve made the this years ago and the recipe did not have condensed milk – just great. I’ve used it as a birthday cake for my son who’s birthday is in August.

      My recipe was a “little different” We don’t have “fat boy” ice-cream sandwiches, I used the regular thickness ones. First I put down a layer of sandwiches, then the caramel sauce, then a second layer of sandwiches and then the whipped topping on top drizzled with chocolate sauce. It was more like an ice cream cake and less like a dessert.

    I’ve done this one only with more layers and adding salted peanuts for that salty-sweet flavor. First layer, regular ice cream sandwiches (never heard of Fat Boys). Second layer, hot fudge. Third layer, cool whip. Fourth layer, salted peanuts. Repeat once – ice cream sandwiches, hot fudge, cool whip and top off with more peanuts. You may need to cool the hot fudge before you add the cool whip, so just stick it in the freezer for 5 minutes before you add the cool whip layer. Cut into squares to serve. Looks so decadent with all the layers; people can’t believe it is ice cream sandwiches. Love this one!

    Do you have to heat the caramel also? I cannot wait to try this…. might do the layer thing also….Looks yummy

    I have been making this for almost 20 years (except no condensed milk and always Pecans) we call it white trash pie. I learned to make it in the N. Ga Mountains by lovable but real white trash ha ha.
