Nothing beats an ice-cream sandwich on a hot summer day. The soft, chocolaty cookie surrounding the vanilla ice-cream is a sure classic. Recently, my husband came home with Neapolitan Ice-Cream Sandwiches. I’ve never seen them before and I didn’t even get to try one before all three of my kids devoured them over the course of a few days. I’m not a big fan of Strawberry Ice-Cream so I wasn’t sad to see them gone.
This week I chose to make my own ice-cream sandwiches as another submission to Gastropost. This week’s mission was to make something that reminded you of summers past. I had a hard time thinking of something so I asked my two boys what reminded them of summer. They both said my Homemade Ice-Cream Sandwich Cake that I make every year for my son’s summer birthday. I didn’t want to make a whole cake so I decided to make individual sandwiches and let them decorate their own. We used sprinkles, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, Skor bits, and pecans. I did, however, use store-bought ice-cream this time. Next time, I think I’ll make my own Mint Chocolate Chip ice-cream to go with these cookies!
