I’m not going to beat around the bush, my job is pretty rad. I get to play around with sweets all day and come up with ideas that make me want to eat even more sweets. I’m lucky to also partner with incredible bloggers on this Hot August Nights promotion. Because it’s still 105-109 degrees this week and next week in Phoenix, we’re still in the “perfectly okay to eat ice cream every day because the Earth is melting outside” part of the summer. I just got back from Pasadena, and that was hot too. When 95 degrees feels cool, you know it’s a problem. Bring on the frozen dessert recipes – right?!?! Luckily, I have a fun one. While the prep takes a few hours because of the freezing between steps, it’s totally worth it. Make a bunch at a time so you can easily grab one or two (or five) each night without having to make them every day.
1 container Mi-Del sandwich cookies (or alternate gluten-free sandwich cookies that fit your allergy needs – Mi-Del contains egg and soy).
1-2 teaspoons Nutiva Buttery Coconut OIl (or plain coconut oil)
1 small cookie scoop or spoon
1 bowl for melting chocolate
Set out the pint of frozen dessert for about 10-15 minutes. Enough for it to be soft, but not runny.
Remove a handful of sandwich cookies (as many as you want to make), and remove the filling. I’m not going to judge you if you prefer to eat it instead of throwing it out, but please note I am firmly in the “just throw it out” camp.
Use the cookie scoop to scoop out a small amount of frozen dessert and sandwich between the two sandwich cookie ends. You’ll have to use your fingers to smooth it out, so make sure your hands are washed!
Lay them on a plate lined with parchment paper and set into the freezer for an hour (or more).
Follow the Enjoy Life Foods instructions on how to melt chocolate using oil.
Pull out the frozen sandwich cookie sandwiches and make sure the frozen dessert is firmly set. Dunk those bad boys into the melted chocolate, and put them back onto the parchment paper. Make sure the chocolate covers all of the sandwich cookie ice cream sandwiches.
Let set for several hours (at least 3), and eat ASAP. The chocolate cover will melt in your hands and it’s perfectly acceptable to lick your hands afterwards.
I’m telling you, these sandwich cookie ice cream sandwiches are awesome. I love this amount of chocolate that’s on this recipe, but if you need to modify without so much chocolate you can. You can easily sub out the chocolate sandwich cookies for vanilla sandwich cookies (both Mi-Del and Glutino make them). You can also sub out the Cookies ‘N Cream frozen dessert for another So Delicious Dairy Free product – like their vanilla cashew milk frozen dessert. However, I don’t recommend you skip the chocolate coating, it’s the best part!A chocolate coated vanilla ice cream sandwich made with sandwich cookies would be just as good!
