Marissa from Rae Gun Ramblings is here today with a delicious treat that would be perfect for the 4th of July or any other time this summer!!
One of my favorite things about Summer is the blanket permission to eat lots of Ice Cream!
Marissa here from Rae Gun Ramblings where I blog about all things delicious, creative, and bookish. Today I've got an super fun idea to add to your Fourth of July celebrations (or really any Summer gathering)! These ice cream cookie sandwiches are super easy and can be made ahead of time for a fun festive and delicious addition to any party. The fun part about these are that you can go all Martha Stewart and whip up your favorite cookie recipe and make your own homemade ice cream or you can do that fast and dirty style and pick up some cookies from the bakery (or cookie dough from the store) top it with your favorite flavor of Tillamook and you're good to go. Both ways are sure to be gobbled up!
What You Need
- Fun Sprinkles
- Ice Cream
Thaw a small amount of your ice cream (just so it's spreadable) and set aside.
Place a smallish scoop of ice cream between two cookies spread a thin layer of the softened ice cream and then top with sprinkles. If you try to sprinkle it onto the nice cold ice cream it tends to not stick but if you wait for it to soften you risk a drippy mess in your hands so I really like using the softened ice cream as a glue!
Fun and easy right? This would be fun with all kinds of different sprinkles. I saw some darling sea critters one the other day that would be great for a pool party! And of course you can't go wrong with rainbow sprinkles.
And while your enjoying delicious Ice Cream sandwiches here are some of my favorite Summer-y posts!
The Ultimate Pool Bag Tutorial. This bag is a work horse. Detachable wet bag, loops for hanging towels when you're done, and full of lots of room. Not just that but it's a pretty easy sewing project that can be finished in just a few hours.
Cookie Butter Treats. Do you love cookie butter? I do and these easy desserts are super yummy and fast to whip up.
One of my favorite things to do is share book recommendations and for me there isn't much better than sitting by the pool (or in the pool) with a really great book. I've rounded up my Top 10 Books to Take to the Pool!
