I lost my mind a bit and bought three different kinds for ice cream sandwich fixings: chocolate, chocolate chip, and snickerdoodle. Perfect homes for Peanut Butter Butterfinger and Vanilla Ice Creams, I thought. Peanut Butter Butterfinger Ice Cream sandwiched between a chocolate cookie, with more crushed Butterfingers added?
I wasn't sure how they'd turn out. I mean $1.00? How good could they be? But they were. A little soft and chewy, without being crumbly, they made the perfect cookie for gently mashing down the ice cream. Seriously, if you have the Dollar General around your parts, find these cookies, and make you some Ice Cream Sandwiches. That's an order! Enjoy!
- 6 scoops of your favorite ice cream
- 1 dozen cookies (approximately 2-3 inches in diameter, if using another size, adjust ice cream amounts accordingly)
- assortment of additions: sprinkles, nuts, crushed candy/candy bars, mini chocolate chips (get creative!)
- Place a scoop of ice cream between two cookies. Gently press together. Smooth any ice cream that squeezes out.
- Sprinkle additions on exposed ice cream all the way around the sandwich.
- If not eating right away, place on baking sheet, cover with wax paper or wrap individually, and place in freezer until ice cream firms back up, or until ready to serve.
