Ice Cream Sandwiches2012 Oct 25 | Written by: Katherine Cortes | Tags: Desserts, For Kids, Ice Cream Recipes
Ice cream and cookies are two of the most popular treats for kids, so why not put them together for a fun dessert? The best part about ice cream sandwiches is that you can ask the young ones to help out. Of course, you can also make them ahead to freeze.
Choose what sort of ice cream and cookies you would like and prepare various colourful garnishes, such as rainbow sprinkles, grated chocolate, peanut butter cups, chopped nuts, granola and much more.
Make your Favourite Combination!
Here are a few combinations of ice cream and sandwiches that you might want to try:
- Oatmeal raisin cookies with vanilla ice cream, with little bits of rosemary in between
- Dark chocolate cookies with vanilla or chocolate ice cream, rolled in salted pistachios and chocolate bits
- Sugar cookies with peanut butter ice cream, rolled in chocolate sprinkles
- Classic combinations such as: chocolate chip cookies with mint chocolate chip ice cream, chocolate cookies with strawberry ice cream
Tip: If you’ve got a cookie cutter, you can use it to cut the cookies and ice cream. Ice cream sandwiches are much more interesting when presented in different fun shapes.

Making the Ice-Cream
With summer just around the corner, now is the ideal time to make your own ice cream sandwiches at home. To start, you’ll need some store-bought or home-made ice cream. We recommend home-made ice cream as it’s so much fresher (and not to mention free from nasty preservative). Kitchenware Direct has a huge assortment of ice cream makers available for sale – ranging from the colourful Cuisinart 1.5L range right up to the Breville Smart Scoop. A truly wonderful gift if you ask us!
