Instant Ice Cream Sandwiches


It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a Chipwich, and it’s certainly no secret that my toddler is practically my mini-me when it comes to food preferences among other things. At such a young age, she’s already discovered that if a dessert doesn’t have chocolate in it, it’s most likely not worth it. (I have no idea where she got this idea! 🙂 Disclaimer: I actually do love a lot of other desserts, particularly apple or cinnamon or cookie based!) We often have dessert in our home, as I am someone who feels the need for even just a taste of something sweet after a meal. (This is a thing, right?) Our latest favorite quick, easy, and delicious treat is the instant ice cream sandwich.

Ice cream sandwiches, while popular as a summer treat, are actually quite irresistible any time of year. The best thing about this yummy treat is that you can whip them up in a matter of minutes and you can also go with less guilt, making bite-sized ice cream sandwiches instead of full-sized ones. (In some cases you can make any size that you like for really fast cookie ice cream sandwiches and I’ll tell you how.)

Your kids are sure to love these just as much as Mom and Dad do. In fact, they’re almost as fun to make as they are to eat! Here are my instructions for instant ice cream sandwiches.
