I love this holiday time of year where there are plenty of reasons to make treats and desserts. Every year about a few weeks before Christmas, I turn on the oven and bake up piles of cookies. We like to give goodies to teachers, bus drivers, neighbors and friends. Every person in our household has a favorite of theirs but the truth is baking cookies is not my favorite thing to do. I would much rather cook or create something fun.
This year, I decided to go with a new treat to serve around holiday time and to give to the neighbors. Since ice cream and OREOs are two of my family's favorites, it would only make sense to make this treat.
These cute little sandwiches can be rolled with whatever type of sprinkles you like. The fun part is changing the flavors of ice cream and sprinkles every time you make them. I store them in cupcake liners in a festive plastic tin and take them out of the freezer every time we have company. And of course, several tins are given to friends after my kids eat their fair share.
THE FLAVOR COMBINATIONS ARE ENDLESS!
These festive OREO ice cream sandwiches are made with traditional OREO cookies and vanilla ice cream. There are so many different flavors to choose from. I am thinking of golden OREOs with lemon ice cream or how about some Candy cane Joe Joe's with chocolate ice cream? The peppermint and chocolate combination is one I use in brownies for the holidays too. There are many seasonal flavors so the possibilities are endless. What are your favorite types of Oreos or cookie sandwiches and ice cream? Use whatever combination you desire!
