I have been compensated for this post. All opinions are 100% my own. I am a huge lover of ice cream and would be sharing this with you regardless!
These ice cream sandwiches have all the flavor of a S’more! So who needs S’mores?
Chocolate cookies are held together with homemade marshmallow ice cream and then dipped in graham cracker crumbs!
The best local ice cream shop has the massive ice cream sandwiches called “Chip Wheelies.” They are exactly what you might imagine. Two huge chocolate chip cookies held together by a thick slab of vanilla ice cream. They are highly addictive. The fact that this ice cream shop installed a drive thru only feeds my wheelie addiction. There’s nothing stopping me from making ice cream detours whenever I’m alone shopping.
Making S’Mores Ice Cream Sandwiches
June is National Dairy Month. So, I decided to surprise the kids with a new kind of ice cream sandwiches. Since summer is for S’mores, I baked up some fudgy chocolate cookies and glued them together with homemade marshmallow ice cream. I have never made a custard based ice cream. I always assumed it was too labor intensive. Boy was I wrong! It only takes a handful of minutes to cook, the rest is chilling time. You can chill the custard while you whip up the cookies. I blended marshmallow fluff into the ice cream as it came out of the ice cream maker. It incorporates a little better and no marshmallow flavor is lost. Don’t feel like baking cookies? Use store bought! But please try the ice cream! It is to die for! I used Greek yogurt in this ice cream recipe. It gives the yogurt a subtle tang but keeps it light and creamy too.
Judging by how silent my kids were as they were devouring these S’mores Ice Cream sandwiches, I’d say they found their own ice cream sandwich addiction. This is one I’m all too happy to encourage! This is a fun take on a summertime classic! A great way to get in a little extra dairy too! Be warned, these ice cream sandwiches are quite sizable! If you have a small appetite (or a small mouth) please adjust your size accordingly!!
I have not told my own kids about my guilty pleasure. Some things are just best kept to yourself. Don’t get me wrong, we eat plenty of ice cream. But I keep my romance with Chip Wheelies between me and the girl in the drive thru!
Did you know June is National Diary Month?
What better way to celebrate National Dairy Month than with big ice cream sammies filled with creamy, protien rich Greek yogurt! I think I’ve convinced myself to eat an ice cream sandwich a day. I’m getting a little extra Vitamin D, Potassium, and Calcium with each sandwich. That’s just “moovolous”. Sorry, couldn’t resist.
