ideas that you can enjoy all year long.
Brownie ice cream sandwiches
Grab two brownies, some vanilla ice cream and you have yourself a delicious dessert. The best part about this recipe? All it takes is a box of brownie mix, a quart of vanilla ice cream, and some patience for the ice cream to soften then re-harden once it is spread.
Blueberry pie ice cream sandwiches
Take your favorite pie -- it doesn't have to be blueberry, grape and cherry work great too-- and make tiny miniature versions. Put a scoop of sorbet or classic vanilla in the middle, and you'll have a dessert on your hands that will impress a five-star chef.
Girl Scout cookie sandwiches
Take your favorite girl scout cookies, and add some frozen yogurt to make a sandwich. We all know you will be eating these cookies by the handful, so just add some almost guilt-free frozen yogurt to the mix, and you'll feel fantastic about finishing the entire carton of cookies.
Banana bread sandwiches
Use those slices of warm banana bread to make a unique dessert slash breakfast. Adding a scoop of peanut butter or chocolate ice cream will be the perfect balance to the heartiness of the bread.
Don't feel creative enough to make your own ice cream sandwiches? Then spruce up what you already have! Take some store-bought ice cream sandwiches and dip the sides in Oreo pieces, sprinkles, nuts, and candies. You can even put them on sticks for easy eating.
