With Labor Day fast approaching, there’s still time to enjoy a cool summer treat. How about these easy-to-make dairy-free ice cream sandwiches…
For those of you here in the States, hopefully the weather’s still good and you’re out and about enjoying the warm rays and maybe taking a cool dip in the pool.
Before you sign off to the colder temps, how about a fun treat to enjoy? Who doesn’t love biting into an ice cream sandwich!
This cool confection is filled with chocolate and nut butter flavored ice cream (tastes like chocolate-peanut butter ice cream!) and sandwiched between two light, cake-like layers of chocolatey goodness.
And maybe best of all, you can feel good about serving this treat because it’s made with simple, wholesome, gluten-free ingredients.
This recipe is two steps, but both are really simple.
First you’ll make the non-dairy ice cream using coconut milk and nut butter and stick it in the freezer (see the link to my ice cream recipe below).
Next you’ll bake up the chocolate wafers for the sandwiches using an inexpensive “whoopie pie pan.”
(I used a Wilton Nonstick Whoopie Pie Pan I ordered on Amazon ($7) and it’s perfect for fun recipes like this!)
I rolled some of the ice cream sandwiches in mini chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand) which added a nice little crunch to the cool ice cream.
I wish I could give you a bite, but my hubby took care of them about a week ago, so you’re just gonna have to make them yourself to find out how delicious they are!
Surprise the kids with this recipe! You know you will be the coolest mom on the block. Just be sure you make enough for all the kids who are going to show up. 🙂
