if the ice cream sandwich grew up


What if, Dear Reader, the simple joy of a chocolate cookie was sandwiched with ice cream, drizzled with chocolate and topped with fresh raspberries? It would be a sweet presentation, indeed.

What if, before squeezing two soft homemade chocolate cookies around store-bought vanilla ice cream, you stirred raspberry preserves into it? It would work. It would be damned delicious, too.


It wasn't too long ago that Saucy was sandwiching cookies with ice cream and sprinkles and she thought they were fancy... now she thinks them not fancy enough.


Because this week, when she was sandwiching cookies with vanilla ice cream she thought it so ho-hum that she had to incorporate miniature chocolate chips with melted chocolate and anything else she could find in the baking cabinet...


Some of the sandwiches looked downright ladylike with crystal sugar and pastel nonpareils.

But damned delicious they were.


Some of them, not as pretty to look at... but sometimes looks don't really matter.



Sometimes its all about the drizzling and sprinkling and rolling. If you want to see some fancy versions of the classic cookie ice cream sandwich, prepare to be dazzled here.

When the letters M and M come together...looks do not matter.

You are officially one of my children's favorite people. And I made your chicken salad for my husband. He wants to marry you now. I explained about Veto, though.

Yummy! My husband considers ice cream its own food group so he would definitely approve. I think if I made it I would incorporate peanut butter and bananas since those are his favorites. Thanks for the inspiration!

A PERFECT idea for an upcoming weekend with the girls. It's probably good that I don't have any ice cream in the house at the moment or I'd be in big trouble. Thanks for the fabulous summer treat inspiration!
