Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches
Friends, you are in for a definite treat today – like, literally. We are sharing our take on easy ice cream sandwiches, just in time for Valentine’s Day dessert.
Welcome to this month’s installment of Thrifty Style Team! Typically, this is the place where we get together with our talented and creative blogger friends every month. We each makeover, repurpose or transform something from our homes or thrift stores. This month however, we have changed things up a bit. Being that this is the season of love, we decided to each share a dessert recipe. Let’s get started!
In our lives, we typically don’t do a lot for Valentine’s Day. We each prefer to stay home and celebrate by making a special meal and dessert. Being that we aren’t comfortable with going inside of a restaurant just yet, we knew that we needed to make the day of love a bit more festive.
When Jenn was a little girl, we would make ice cream sandwiches with fresh baked cookies. Usually, it was peanut butter cookies filled with vanilla ice cream. We decided the cookies needed to be a bit over-the-top for our special dessert.
Make it Easy
What’s easier than starting this dessert treat, than with store bought cookies. You deserve to take it easy too. Our Valentine cookies came with a kit and edible markers. We opted to skip this and just add red icing to the tops. We love the pop of red. You can even use smaller cookies for this recipe.
- Store bought, heart shaped cookies
- Pint of your favorite ice cream.We used a pint of Häagen Dazs, strawberry.
- Use 2 cookies for each ice cream sandwich
- Lay the pint of ice cream on its side. Using a sharp knife, cut through the carton and the ice cream.
- Again, using a sharp knife cut out a V shape from the top of your ice cream circle. (see photo).
- Lay ice cream on the backside of one cookie.
- Dip the ice cream onto a plate of sprinkles.
- Top the ice cream with another cookie.
- Place on a tray in the freezer until you are ready for dessert.
