Easter Ice Cream Sandwiches








The minute I saw these adorable treats I knew I had to post them. This recipe is perfect for those of us who don't have a lot of time on our hands. These are super easy to do and would make a great treat for Easter. Just pick a pastel ice cream, sandwich it between waffle cookies and viol√°! Easter eggs! They used strawberry here but mint or sherbet would be cute too, honestly though, can you ever really go wrong when it comes to ice cream?


What you’ll need:

Carton of ice cream

Butter waffle cookies from Trader Joe’s or Whole foods

Round cookie cutter bent into an oval

Large knife

Cookie sheet

Parchment paper

Wax string

Directions:

Take your ice cream (the boxed kind works best) and cut off a 3/4″ thick slab, it does not have to be exact just thinner than your cookie cutter.

Next, use your cookie cutter and cut out ovals from the ice cream, set the ovals on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and put the sheet in the freezer to firm up.
While you wait, cut out 9.5″x2.5″ strips of parchment paper to use as holders for the finished product.
Once the ice cream has chilled for a bit, transfer to the cookies with a spatula.

For a little extra sweetness, add decorative chocolate sprinkles; simply roll the edges through the sprinkles for an even coating.
For the final touch, wrap in parchment paper and secure with waxed thread or baker’s twine then freeze until ready to serve.


Enjoy!
