Homemade Ice Cream Cake

How to make it

8 graham crackers 
4 tablespoons of butter
1 1/2 gallon of ice cream (soften it by leaving out for 30 minutes) 
1 tub of cool whip

How to make it

Place graham crackers in food processor and blend.  Melt butter and mix together with crushed graham crackers.  Pat into 9x13 pan.  (I used a 9x9 pan and did half of the recipe.)  Place softened ice cream on top of graham cracker crust.  Pour entire tub of cool whip on top.  Place in freezer for 4 - 6 hours (overnight is even better).
For Ryan's cake I used strawberry ice cream and added sliced strawberries on top before serving.  (Children wanted to add red sugar sprinkles on top, too.)  
I have also made this as a chocolate version using oreos for the crust and sprinkled on top with any complimentary ice cream flavor.   

Very easy and very yummy.
