TIP OF THE DAY: Alternative Ice Cream Sandwiches

Donut sandwiches are the new ice cream sandwich. Photo courtesy Schwan’s.

 

We love ice cream sandwiches. We typically make ours with chocolate chip cookies or sliced pound cake.

But these ideas from Schwan’s have us thinking in new directions. You can whip them up and serve them immediately, or store them in the freezer.

  • Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches. Cake-style ring doughnuts, regular or mini, make excellent uppers and lowers with an ice cream filling. More dense than the airy, yeast-leavened doughnuts (like Krispy Kreme), cake doughnuts are leavened with baking powder or baking soda. Look for a plain doughnut without frosting or glaze, like a cinnamon sugar doughnut. Cut it in half with a serrated knife and fill with ice cream.
  • Rice Krispie Treats Ice Cream Sandwiches. Slice a rice krispie treat in half, fill with ice cream and cut away the excess ice cream. (Don’t throw away the trimmings; snack on it.)
  • Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches. Toast two toaster waffles and let cool before filling (or the heat will begin to melt the ice cream).

    GARNISH YOUR ICE CREAM SANDWICH

    You can add another layer of flavor before sealing with the top sandwich layer:

  • Caramel, chocolate or fruit sauce
  • Sliced bananas, strawberries or other fruit (mango is delicious with vanilla ice cream, orange segments or marmalade creates a “Creamsicle” effect)
  • Chopped nuts
  • Morsels (butterscotch, chocolate, mint, peanut)
  •  
    You can roll the ice cream edges in sprinkles, mini chips or confetti (as shown in the photo).

    Whatever you do, you’ll have fun.
