You need to know two things about my family: 1) we are bat-poop crazy for ice cream sandwiches. We keep the freezer stocked with It’s-It ice cream treats like Doomsdayer’s and trips to Diddy Riese for chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches in Westwood are year-round adventures; and 2) in July we raised our game by taking on more creative dessert sandwiches, some of which, will make you forget all about the the traditional ice cream sandwich. Impossible you say? Then you need to try the Glazed Donut Strawberry Shortcake or the Raspberry Nutella Panini.

Banana Hot Dog
What a fun switch up for the kids — they will get a kick out of these "hot dogs." I also like the added bonus of fresh fruit and dessert being a whole banana.
Raspberry Nutella Panini
Raspberries, nutella, and mascarpone all sandwiched between a yummy baguette. The only thing missing is fresh whipped cream.
Grilled Chocolate and Fruit Panini
This recipe gives you all kinds of suggestions for seasonal fruit to add to your grilled dessert sandwich.
Glazed Donut Strawberry Shortcake
I've never had strawberry shortcake this decadent! I also can't believe I've never seen this or tried this before.
This "grilled cheese" is actually cinnamon bread with mascarpone cheese, raspberry preserves, dulce de leche, whipped cream, and fresh raspberries.
