Summer is coming and we are going to be trying lots of cool treats! One thing the kids love are ice cream sandwiches.
I always like to try making stuff from scratch at least once and I was pleasantly surprised with how these turned out.
Making the cookie
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees
Mix 4 table spoons of butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil, and 1 cup coconut palm sugar in the mixer until it is smooth.
Add in 2 large eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
Once all mixed, lightly flour your rolling surface and roll out the dough and use a cookie cutter in the shape that you want your ice cream sandwiches to be made.
You will need to do this several times to use all of your dough. During the process, the dough will begin to get dry – anytime that happens grease your fingers with a little coconut oil and work it into the dough – it will soften again!
Cook in oven for 8 mins, once removed transfer to cooling rack immediately.
Once the cookies have cooled
You need ice cream! Whether you make your own or use store bought you need to work with the ice cream quick. Working with melting ice cream is a complete messy nightmare… (we had a few casualties)
You do not need to cover the whole cookie with ice cream – make sure you leave room around the edges. Add another cookie on top, wrap and put it in the freezer QUICK!! – I haven't quite mastered this yet..
I rolled some of mine in sprinkles and coloured coconut and they were delicious.. ours didn't last past 4 days – but if yoursdo they keep well in the freezer for a good 3 months!
Do you have any ice cream sandwich hacks for working with the ice cream and making these sandwiches so you don't create a melty mess?
Please share below!
The recipe for the cookie part of the ice-cream sandwiches was adapted from Annie's Eats
