The Perfect Ice Cream Sandwich {Clueless Chick Giveaway}


Mmmmmm Ice Cream Sandwich.  Who doesn't love an ice cream sandwich?  Did you know that National ice cream sandwich day is in August?  That plus the inspiration I got from last month's YummyFun event with Clare Crespo at Marbles Kid's Museum resulted in, dare I say it, the perfect ice cream sandwich!  Well, maybe not perfect (given that it was my first attempt) but pretty darn close.

I've always been a bit leery of making ice cream sandwiches, worrying about the cookies falling apart, making a huge mess, and getting generally frustrated.  And that my friends is no fun.  Thankfully I finally bit the bullet and made these beauties. 

A Perfect Ice Cream Sandwich
  1. Make your favorite cookies (my personal favorite is a Clueless Chick variation of the classic Toll House recipe).  To ensure uniform cookies size use a mini (or full size) ice cream scoop.
  2. Allow cookies to cool completely then place in the freezer for 1-2 hours.
  3. Take your favorite Breyers ice cream out of the freezer and allow it to soften for 10-15 minutes (I chose Cookies & Cream).  
  4. Remove cookies from the freezer, turn 1/2 of cookies upside down on a cookie sheet, scoop ice cream onto cookies and gently press other cookie on top.
  5. Place assembled ice cream sandwiches back in the freezer for at least 30 min to allow ice cream to firm up so that you don't have an ooey gooey mess on your hands.
Enjoy!

Psst!  Don't forget to enter your perfect ice cream sandwich in the Breyers Delicious Moments Giveaway!
