    I like more filling and frosting so
    I used 3 cups of cool whip and 2/3 of the cookies.

    Love this recipe, wanted more texture in icing( cool whip ) so I used wax paper and rolling pin over cookies for chunkier bites, also used more cool whip. My granddaughters loved it.

    Do you cover it with anything while it’s freezing?

      You don’t have to for the hour or two that it takes the dessert to set. If you’re going to be keeping it in the freezer to enjoy over a few days, you might want to cover to protect it.

      Hi Edleide! It really depends on how large you’d like the servings to be, but I think you could get 6-8 slices.

    Could I double the recipe to make a bigger cake? We have a big family and want to make sure everyone gets to enjoy.
