Finally, it's warming up (consistently at least) in Seattle! Every day when I step outside, it's burning. I love summer, but I also love summer treats. So go to your kitchen and start making this yummy dessert: Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches!
One announcement before I began. The Bored Baker: Make Your Own Lunch Camp! is in session. This camp is for kids who are ages 6-11, and it will be taught by The Bored Baker herself. Make sure you sign up soon because there are only 4 spots available. All money will be donated to charity.
Anyway back to the post. These ice cream sandwiches are amazing. They are so addictive as well. You'll just keep eating them, I guarantee you.
First off, you don't need as much equipment as a normal ice cream sandwich. There's no molds or extra freezing. All you need to do is:
Make your cookies
Have your ice cream ready
It's that easy. When it comes to cookie flavors, you can choose anything. Funfetti cookies are a great pop of color so I love them. But I also enjoy chocolate chip cookies. Another idea is to put sprinkles and chocolate chips together into one cookie
The same goes for the ice cream, it's totally up to you. I like the classic vanilla. But cookie dough, strawberry, and chocolate are all great choices. Make sure you use good quality ice cream. Or make your own as I did (I chose vanilla). It makes a world of difference.
You can roll the edges of the cookie ice cream sandwiches in sprinkles, chocolate chips, or nuts. I would love to hear which variation you used! 😉
