Ice cream sandwiches

We made ice cream sandwiches this weekend for ourselves and some guests and I remembered how fun and easy they are to make and eat. Such a simple dessert when you have most of the ingredients on hand with no cooking, baking, chopping, or measuring necessary.
This is how we made ours:

Mint chocolate sandwiches
Mint chip ice cream
Mini chocolate chips
Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers

Let ice cream soften just a bit, scoop it onto a wafer, sandwich it closed with another, roll in mini chips. Freeze.

Chocolate banana nut sandwiches
Vanilla ice cream
Diced bananas
Chopped lightly salted peanuts (I used an electric chopper, so I don't count that as tedious or laborious chopping)
Nabisco wafers

Let ice cream soften a bit, mix in bananas, sandwich it between wafers, roll in chopped nuts. Freeze.

Now, for really good ice cream sandwiches, I would make my own ice cream and cookies, but when you don't think ahead, these do the trick.

(My daughter wanted to pose with the cookies, so that's the result of her little photo shoot, above).

I'm pleased that B wanted to pose for pics, since we usually just get the back of her head when she sees the camera! Do you think it was because of the ice cream sandwiches???

These look divine, decadent, and can I come visit so I can have one? LOL. Scrumptious, definitely will be making this with my granddaughter very soon. Thanks for sharing.

Yummy! I've been looking for those chocolate wafers for another recipe too, did you have to order yours on Amazon, or did you find them locally?

Amber,
I have been able to find the wafers at both of our major chain grocers here. Sometimes they're in the cookie section and sometimes near the ice cream syrups. Hope you find some!

they looks quite delicious. when I was a kid and I was in the hospital. It was one thing that I could eat millions of it.

I’m still not really certain how much I agree with you on it all. I subscribed to your rss feed though and will certainly keep following your writing and possibly down the road I may chime in once again in much more detail.

they looks quite delightful. when I was a kid and I was in the medical center. It was one factor that I could eat an incredible number of it.

I'm satisfied that B desired to cause for photos, since we usually just get the returning of her go when she recognizes the camera! Do you think it was because of the ice lotion sandwiches???
