Our Best Ice Cream Sandwiches
Chocolate-Marshmallow Ice Cream Sandwiches
S’mores + candy bars + chocolate cake = a recipe for guaranteed dessert deliciousness. All three combine in our irresistible ice cream cookie sandwich recipe! Rather than starting from scratch, the cookies are based on chocolate cake mix, while the chocolate ice cream gets a semihomemade twist with the addition of chopped Twix bars. Layer both with a schmear of marshmallow creme, and dessert is done. (No campfire required.)
Lemon Bar Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
Tart, tangy, and totally refreshing, this ice cream sandwich dessert starts with a simple sugar cookie bar recipe. Spread the baked bar cookies with vanilla ice cream swirled with lemon curd, then stack on the second cookie layer and freeze. For a final mouth-puckering punch, coat in crushed lemon candies.
Chocolate-Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches
If you like peanut butter cups, you’ll melt over these rich ice cream cookie sandwiches. The dessert sammies include a sweet “condiment”: peanut butter-flavor chocolate. To really amplify the nutty qualities, opt for butter pecan or peanut butter ice cream for the filling.
Chocolate-Covered Cherry Ice Cream Sandwiches
No need to fight over that last chocolate-covered cherry in the box of chocolates. This ice cream cookie sandwich features the same sweet flavors in a cool and creamy treat that’s dipped in a homemade chocolate shell.
Tip: We call for cherry ice cream, but you could also start with vanilla (or chocolate if you’re really craving cocoa) and stir in fresh fruit if you prefer.
PB&J Ice Cream Sandwiches
It’s like your favorite lunch box sandwich just got taken to new decadent heights. These PB&J Ice Cream Sandwiches look like you spent loads of time bringing them to life, but the supermarket does most of the work for you (our little secret!). Bake a roll of peanut butter cookie dough in square-shape bites, add a mini scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, and crown it all with a dollop of your favorite fruit preserves.
Chocolate-Hazelnut Ice Cream Sandwiches
Looking for a low-fuss dessert? Search no further than this four-ingredient fix. The ice cream sandwich dessert requires only chocolate wafers, chocolate-hazelnut spread, ice cream, and hazelnuts. Kids will love helping with assembling—and enjoying—the cookie sandwiches.
Grilled Donut Ice Cream Sandwich
This Grilled Donut Ice Cream Sandwich has nearly endless possibilities. Choose your donut (glazed, cake, sprinkle-coated...anything goes!), slice in half, and toss it on the grill. Then snag your favorite flavor of ice cream. Sandwich a scoop and a drizzle of chocolate sauce between the warm and toasty bakery goody. All that’s left to do is dive in.
Summer Fruit Crisp Ice Cream Bars
We're taking a few liberties by categorizing these bars as ice cream sandwiches. But as long as you pack in the crumble nice and tight, you can absolutely eat these ice cream treats with your hands! For even more sweetness, amp up your strawberry or peach ice cream recipe with pieces of fresh fruit.
Chocolate Cupcake Ice Cream Sandwiches
Who says cookies get to have all the ice cream treat fun? This chocolate-cherry dessert amps up the splurge factor even more with tender chocolate cupcake halves in the starring role.
Tip: Make these ice cream sandwiches your own by customizing with your favorite nuts and flavor of jam.
Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches
No need to sweat over homemade ice cream cookies. No one will notice that you didn’t DIY when you dress up sugar cookie dough with cinnamon and sugar. Shredded coconut does a stellar job disguising store-bought vanilla ice cream, too. Roll in crushed cornflakes (we also devoured one version with sweetened cinnamon toast-flavor wheat and rice cereal) for the just-right amount of crunch.
Churro Ice Cream Sandwiches
Introducing the best South-of-the-Border ice cream sandwich! Cinnamon-sugar churros act as the “bun” on this cookie sandwich. Add a scoop of vanilla or dulce de leche ice cream between two for a warmly spiced Mexican-inspired delight.
Pixie Ice Cream Sandwiches
These homemade ice cream cookies will really get you buzzing! The dough is infused with coffee crystals, which plays perfectly with the rich chocolate. Here’s how to make ice cream sandwiches photo-worthy: Freeze softened ice cream in a pan, then slice rounds with a cookie cutter that’s the same size or slightly smaller than your baked cookies.
