An ice cream sandwich is a quintessential summer dessert. When people are out and about enjoying the sunshine and warm weather, sitting in parks and under shady trees or floating in ocean waves at the beach, it is imperative that food be easy to hold and eat. Enter the ice cream sandwich! A wonderful creation with a cakey exterior that sticks to finger tips and a perfect layer of creamy ice cream in the middle. Commercially sold ice cream sandwiches tend to be the perfect size to quickly gobble down before rushing back to summer activities, without weighing you down.
There are many recipes and variations of the classic ice cream sandwich, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t get any better than a classic chocolate, fudge-like wafer cookie (made with bitter cocoa powder) filled with sweet vanilla ice cream. If you don’t want to make your own ice cream, that’s totally ok, just make sure to buy some seriously good quality, full fat, whole milk, creamy, delicious ice cream to use instead.
