Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches
Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwich with Chocolate Cookies
Freeze 12 Big Chocolate chunky cookies (I use Pepperidge Farm Brownie cookies) that you've frozen at least a day ahead of time or some of your own chocolate fudgy cookies.
Lay out 6 of the cookies, flat side up.
Scoop strawberry ice cream (I like Ben & Jerry's Strawberry ice cream) onto the cookies.
Using a butter knife gently spread ice cream to the edge.
Layer fresh strawberries cut into small pieces onto the ice cream. (sometimes I use thick strawberry preserves if fresh aren't available)
Cover with another cookie, flat side down.
Press down lightly. Repeat with other cookies.
Spread chocolate chips or small pieces of broken chocolate on a plate.
Roll the sides of the sandwich in the chocolate chips until covered.
Wrap each sandwich and freeze.
Chocolate Banana Ice Cream Sandwich with Chocolate Cookies
I'm a big fan of chocolate and bananas. My particular favorite ice cream is banana with chocolate chunks and walnuts: Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Monkey (Fairtrade). Repeat as above, leaving the strawberries out and substituting the banana chocolate chunk ice cream.
Let's face it. Almost any good ice cream would work. Try Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Macadamia or Cherry Garcia or Mint Chocolate Chunk.
So none of this is really home-made, although you always have that option. These taste treats are fast, easy and delicious. The chocolate 'chips' I add are premium high end dark chocolate from the best chocolate makers! Really adds to the taste.
No photos. The last batch was eaten before I could find the camera or the phone.
