Ice Cream Sandwiches


One of my favorites treats to eat in the summer is ice cream. I usually make my own ice cream, and oh boy, it is beyond delicious! I mean who doesn’t like ice cream right? Well, I am sorry if you don’t…

Today I am making a classic. Ice cream sandwiches. I think this is a classic in the US, Spain and all over the world! These ice cream sandwiches really took me back to my childhood. Eating them by the beach or pool while playing with my friends. I really want to recreate these fun memories for my baby girl! Well, she’s not that much of a baby anymore, she is 1-year old already!

For this recipe, I am using vanilla ice cream, but please use your favorite ice cream. Go crazy! lol. Let’s make them!
