Today is Strawberry Ice Cream Day. Now this may seem like January 15 is an odd day for it--at least in the Northern hemisphere, but everyone now eats ice cream all year round. Here's an easy recipe for Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches with Chocolate Cookies.
Easy 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 softened strawberry ice cream (use the very best) 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
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.
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.
