Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream Sandwich
What we love most about this ice cream sandwich version of strawberries and cream is the way the cookies and ice cream combine into a treat that’s way more than the sum of its parts. The sandwich gets soft and melty—in the best possible way—where cookie and ice cream meet. While the cookie’s outside remains perfectly chewy and its ice cream center delivers cool, creamy strawberry flavor.
When you take a bite of this sandwich, expect all the flavor of a PB&J and then some! Crispy, crunchy peanut butter cookie are held together by sweet grape jam and creamy vanilla ice cream for the most irresistible version of a childhood classic. Pro tip: Enlist little helpers in making this treat for a fun summertime activity with a sweet reward.
Inside-Out Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich
Skip the glass of milk. Instead, eat these soft-and-chewy chocolate chip cookies with ice cream. You’ll get a similar cool and creamy contrast that’s just a little over the top—since the ice cream we have in mind is chocolate chip cookie dough. With double the chocolate chip cookie goodness, this sandwich is made to please your inner cookie monster!
