WFMW -- Ice cream cake and pepperoni rolls

Today's Works for Me Wednesday has a theme, Greatest Hits Edition. When I was reviewing my choices I decided my best WFMW posts were about food. Which is rather fitting for me. So, here are two of those posts. Enjoy!

Now I know that it is absolutely FREEZING in most parts of the country, but in case you are craving a great, easy and cheap ice cream treat here it is for ya!
Get a box of ice cream sandwiches. Line the bottom of the cake pan with the sandwiches and then apply hot fudge syrup and caramel on the sandwiches, then top that with cool whip and apply more fudge and caramel on the top of the cool whip, just enough to "decorate" it. Freeze this over night and it is a fabulous treat!
It has been a hit for me. It takes 5 minutes to prepare and is a cheap treat!

Today's! I love to eat...which is obvious to those who know me....but I don't always like to slave over a hot stove for hours on end (and other times I don't mind it at all). Well here is a quick and easy recipe to enjoy.
If you like pepperoni pizza you will LOVE these pepperoni rolls. When I lived in West Virginia these were very popular and I just assumed everyone new about pepperoni rolls, but I was wrong. Now my homemade pepperoni rolls are not the best I have ever had, but they have fed many a group of friends or just me and my husband.
Ingredients: 2 packages of pepperoni (or 1 if you want to make less)
a 4-pack of biscuits in a can (I use the brown Pillsbury kind, dont get the big fluffy kind, get the small biscuits)
a bag of Mozzerella cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take one biscuit and flatten it out, put a bit of mozzerella cheese on top (I do a pinch and judge from there), then 2-3 pepperoni slices. Then roll up the biscuit into a crescent roll kind of shape, place it on a cookie sheet. If you use all 4 cans of biscuits, this will make about 40 pepperoni rolls. Cook these for about 12-15 minutes. When the bottoms turn brown they are done. Enjoy!

I tried your pepperoni rolls with cresent rolls and they were a big hit with DS15! Thanks! Am sure, it will be a staple of our kitchen now.
