When two cubes make contact, there is a very thin film of water between them. Because the film is between the cubes, it cannot draw heat from the rest of the liquid, so the temperature of the film quickly drops below freezing, itself becoming ice and so fuses the cubes together. The colder the cubes, the quicker this happens.

Why do ice cubes stick together at times?

A cold glass of water sometimes causes water vapour from the surrounding air to condense onto the surface of the glass. The same thing happens with ice cubes, but instead the water droplets condensing on the surface, they will instantly freeze and 'weld' ice cubes together. They also can stick together if put into a drink, where again, the water in the drink near the surface of the ice cube may get cold enough to freeze and cause the ice cubes to fuse together.
