Mint-Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches 

  

Summer is short! So indulge in ice cream because before you know it, you will be sipping on hot chocolate and tea to stay warm. 

There are many ways to enjoy the seasonal treat, including one of everyone’s favourite- the ice cream sandwich! If you have time on your hands, you can of course make your cookies and ice cream from scratch. But let’s face it, there are better things to do when the sun in shining. 

To cut down on prep, use ready-made ingredients. And no, this doesn’t mean sacrificing taste. The secret to achieving a gourmet flavour is coming up with fun combinations that give classic vanilla and chocolate some serious competition! The recipe below is oh-so-tasty and quick to make — as quick as it takes to bake and cool the cookies.

Frozen oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough

Mint chocolate chip ice cream

Instructions:

1. Bake the cookies according to package instructions.

2. Let cool completely. 

3. Scoop your ice cream on to one cookie, and place the other on top! 

That’s all there is to it –1, 2,3 and they’re ready to enjoy!
