Easy to make, even easier to eat!


I have long suspected that Moms have superpowers, and now that I am a Mom myself, I know. I still remember the first time my brother and I were left alone for a few days at home, and accidentally we dropped a can of Coke on the stairs. We spent two hours cleaning (and I mean cleaning thoroughly). We could have called the CSI guys and they wouldn’t have found any evidence for sure… Well, when my mother arrived, she dropped the suitcase on the floor, and the first words she said were: “What did you drop on the stairs?” Superpowers, I told you…

Moms have supersight as well for finding lost things. I have even heard some Moms have the superpower of opening easy-open juice cartons without using their teeth (not my case)

And then there is the superpower of preparing something good to eat when, after returning from holidays, you only find and empty fridge. So rather than a recipe, what I wanted to share with you today is an idea to serve ice cream easily and quickly with only 3 ingredients, using storebought breakfast biscuits. If you want a homemade version, last year I shared with you this recipe from Martha Stewart showing how to make ice cream sandwiches at home

I hope you like them!

{Easy icecream sandwich}

Preparation: 15 min

Cooking time: 2 min

Servings: 8

Ingredients

For the sandwiches

  • 16 storebought breakfast cookies
  • 8 scoops vanilla icecream

Chocolate frosting:

  • 250 g dark chocolate
  • 50 g cocoa butter(
    optional)
  • 100 g chopped hazelnuts

Directions

  1. Take a couple of cookies, and place a scoop of ice cream between them. Press to form the sandwich. Alternatively, press the ice cream mixture into a parchment paper lined plastic container. Cover and freeze the ice cream until set. Remove the ice cream from the plastic storage container and using a a round cookie cutter cut into 8 circles, about the size of the cookies
  2. Keep the ice cream sandwiches in the freezer, so they are perfectly frozen before dipping them in chocolate sauce
  3. Prepare two bowls: fill one with chopped hazelnuts, and in the other one melt chopped chocolate and cocoa butter
  4. When chocolate is fully melted, let it cool to room temperature (about 10 minutes)
  5. Dip sandwiches (one at a time) in chocolate halfway, drain excess, and before chocolate sets dip the sandwich in the bowl with chopped hazelnuts. Put the sandwiches back in the freezer until chocolate hardens (10 minutes)
  6. Serve inmediately, or keep icecream sandwiches in the freezer until consumption, wrapped in waxed paper or plastic wrap so they do not absorb any odors

NOTES:

  • If you want to prepare this recipe with homemade icecream, in this blog you will find: vanilla icecream recipe, chocolate icecream recipe and strawberry icecream recipe
  • Cocoa butter is only intended to make chocolate more fluid. You might use coconut oil instead, or just plain chocolate. You might keep remaining chocolate sauce on the fridge inside an airtight container, and melt again in the microwave when you intend to use it
