Can I prep this dessert a day before serving?
Yes, prepping a day before is a great idea, as it allows all the flavors to meld together beautifully. Just ensure it’s covered well in the freezer to preserve its freshness and flavor.

Do I need to thaw the ice cream sandwiches before assembling?
There’s no need to thaw the ice cream sandwiches. Using them straight from the freezer helps maintain the structure of the dessert and makes the assembly process much smoother.
