Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches

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.

You find the easiest recipes. Good thing because I'm in the mood for an ice cream sandwich right now!

I've been doing this for years, but Ben & Jerry's and all their flavors and new flavors make it always surprising and better... and since we've been doing chocolate Tastings as part of Team Building Unlimited's offerings, we always have extra great chocolate to break up and roll the sandwiches in... so easy!

Lucky for me. I'm sandwiching as we speak and it's all YOUR fault!!!
