Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Today is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day and, with the record heat we’ve had here in Chicago, I plan on celebrating all week long!

And nothing quite says summer like an ice cream sandwich. Whether it’s the traditional chocolate graham sandwiches or the upscale chocolate chip cookie sandwiches, a cool and refreshing ice cream sandwich just hits the spot every time.

And today, I have a fun way to celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich day with just three ingredients: cookies, ice cream, and sprinkles…can’t go wrong there!


These cute little sandwich bites are great for any season and are sure to please kids and adults alike.

To start, use a cookie dough scoop to scoop out as many ice cream balls as you’d like. Place them on a cookie sheet and pop them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This will harden them a little bit and make them easier to work with.

Once your ice cream balls have hardened, sandwich each ball between two Vanilla Wafer cookies. Roll edges of cookie sandwich in sprinkles and enjoy!

Great for those days that are just too hot to be outside, this is a fun project for kids to help with and a tasty treat for any summer birthday party or BBQ.

Every Monday is a “Reci-bee” post, where I share my favorite recipes, recipe collections, and cooking and baking hints and tips.
