Hi there Kenarry readers, and happy almost-summer!

Today I’ve brought over some super easy Ice Cream Sandwiches that I dressed them up with some red white and blue sprinkles for a Patriotic touch! They’re the perfect the treat for celebrating the 4th!

Raise your hand if you’re ready for summer! Is your hand up? Mine definitely is! I’m really looking forward to having some time to just relax and unwind with my little ones over the next couple of months. My son just graduated from preschool last week (tear!), so I’m trying to soak up all of those sweet, fun moments with him before Kindergarten starts.

Right now, playing in the pool is one of his favorite things to do, so we will probably be spending a lot of time by the water this summer. And what do I enjoy most about pool time? Oh, that’s easy. The pool FOOD!

How to Make Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches

YES. I love eating pool side, especially when it’s a sweet frozen treat like these Ice Cream Sandwiches. Y’all are going to love how simple these are to make. Three ingredients; that’s it! If you decide to make your cookies homemade there will be a few more ingredients, but I went the easy route and picked mine up from that wonderful, lovely store called Costco.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place sprinkles in a shallow bowl and set aside. Remove ice cream from freezer and allow to soften just slightly. Add one heaping scoop of ice cream to flat side of one chocolate chip cookie.
  • Add second cookie to the top, flat side down. Push down slightly to seal cookies and ice cream together to make a sandwich.
  • If ice cream is too soft and squishes out, use a small spatula to scrape around the ice cream and smooth the edges.
  • Dip edges of the ice cream sandwich in the sprinkles. Individually wrap sandwich in plastic wrap to freeze for a few hours.

Notes

*These can be eaten right away, but the ice cream might slip out when you bite into them. Freezing them for a few hours will help them to hold together better.
