DIY Ice cream Sandwich 

A fun and quick idea to eat ice cream and it takes literally 60 seconds to make!  No cooking or baking required.

This is a great activity to do with the kids over the school holidays, hen do’s or desserts for dinner parties. If you are like me you can just make it for yourself because…why not?

All you need is:

  • Your favourite ice cream
  • Your favourite biscuits
  • A really good ice cream scoop – I recommend the Joseph Joseph Non – drip ice -cream Scoop

I absolutely love this scoop (well anything by Joseph Joseph) – it has such a clever design and it is so cute too. You can get it in either pink (pictured above) or green.

The scoop itself is dimpled, which makes taking ice cream out of the carton so much easier.

 The best thing about the scoop though, is once you have finished, or in between scoops, you can stand it upright so there is no messy drippy ice cream anywhere.

To assemble the ice cream sandwich,  you need 2 scoops per sandwich.

Simply place one biscuit on a flat surface, scoop the ice cream on top and place the other biscuit on top.

With a palette knife, or any blunt knife, smooth the edges around the biscuit.

For an extra special ice cream sandwich you can even add sprinkles.

Once assembled eat quickly 🙂

I was sent the ice-cream scoop by Joseph Joseph but I am a massive fan 🙂 All views and pictures are my own.

    It’s great that you can stand up the scoop but I never have the problem with messy excess drip anyway – as I’m always sure to lick my scoop dry – no point wasting food right?! 😀
