Homemade Ice-Cream Sandwiches

Posted on June 10, 2013
Hi, Everybody! These Homemade Ice-cream Sandwiches are hardly a recipe, but they were too delicious not to share with you! I’d rather not admit the amounts of ice-cream that I am capable of eating all year round, but whenever the summer starts, it almost feels like ice-cream, or some form of it, is a prescribed daily treat, or so I tell myself! I think my college years are slightly to blame for this addiction! These ice-cream sandwiches are the perfect little dessert – you get ice-cream, a cookie and candy all in one bite! What could be better!
Cookies (either homemade or store-bought)
Ice-cream of your choice
Chocolate or candy, chopped
(You can go as crazy as you want with it! Any sort of candy, chocolate, chopped nuts or sprinkles will work!)
To make these ice-cream sandwiches, simply prepare your cookies (I used chocolate chip cookies with pecans. If you are using homemade cookies make sure they are completely cooled, you may even want to pop them in the freezer for just a couple of minutes), place a scoop of slightly softened ice-cream on one cookie and top with the other one (make sure the ice-cream isn’t super soft otherwise this will be a huge mess! If you need the ice-cream to harden a little once you’ve already made the sandwich, just put it in the freezer for a little while). Next, chop your candy, chocolate, nuts, coconut or whatever else you may be using for your ice-cream sandwiches! Place the chopped goodies onto a large plate or chopping board and roll the edges of the sandwich in it, until everything sticks to the ice-cream. Immediately place the ice-cream sandwiches back into the freezer until they are firm, then they are ready to eat!
Have a great day, Everyone!

My toddler is sitting on my lap and when I opened your page, he went, “Mmmmmmm momomomomom” which, translated, is: Mom, I need that in my belly! 🙂 & I agree with him!

    SO pretty and easy Maria! I too consume unholy amounts of ice cream (even when it’s cold), but when I go on a real bender, I seem to stop craving it for a while. At least until the next one hits 🙂
