Perry’s Guide to Red, White & Blue Desserts

Your 4th of July picnic is fast approaching, and you still don’t know what are you serving for dessert? May we suggest a few options.

You will quickly notice that our suggestions are on the chilly side, naturally. We also try to handpick the recipes that don’t require much time to prepare, yet will still delight your guests with their “almost home made” quality.

Our newest addition to the recipe family is Perry’s Ice Cream Sandwich Cake.

You will need:

  • Perry’s Ice Cream Sandwiches (12 Sandwiches)
  • 8 oz. Whipped Topping
  • 1 jar Hot Fudge or Caramel Sauce for topping
  • ¼ cup Chopped Nuts (optional)
  • Maraschino cherries (optional)


Line a square cake pan (or glass pan to see the layers) with one layer of Perry’s Ice Cream Sandwiches. Cut sandwiches to fit snugly into corners. Layer with hot fudge or caramel sauce.  Hot fudge will freeze better, while caramel sauce can remain runny even after freezing.  Add second layer of Perry’s Ice Cream Sandwiches. Spread top with softened frozen whipped topping. Place in freezer. Just before serving, top with optional Maraschino cherries and chopped nuts if desired.
