What childhood memory does summertime conjure up most for you? For me it has to be sitting by the side of a pool in a dripping wet bathing suit on a warm day, licking around the sides of an ice cream sandwich. Granted ice cream sandwiches are not as healthy as a juicy slice of watermelon or a bowl of plump strawberries, but my love for them still knows no limit. While it’s easy enough to buy them in the store, these days I prefer making my own, especially when you consider what’s in most boxed brands. And it allows me to be creative. Click through this slideshow for some seriously mouth-watering ice cream sandwich recipes, plus some recipes to mix and match for your version of the perfect ice cream sandwich!
