Whether you’re throwing a birthday party for kids, or having a casual BBQ for adults, this is an absolutely ideal, quick, easy, and delicious summer dessert!
And let’s face it, when you add rainbow sprinkles to a dessert, it immediately becomes fun. I mean, really, which ice cream sandwich would you grab—a brownish-beige one, or a bright and colorful one? It’s a no-brainer! So yes, of course I rolled tasty ice cream sandwiches in sprinkles. I love stacking these on top of one another like a pyramid—to make a cake tower of sorts. It will wow your guests and it makes serving super simple. All your guests will need are their hands and a napkin.
Chocolate Chip Sprinkle Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe
Add a delicious layer of crunch to the best summer dessert on the block.
By Valentina Kenney Wein
chocolate chip cookies (approximately 3 inches round): 2 dozen
chocolate ice cream, softened: 1¾ pounds
rainbow sprinkles: ½ cup
mini chocolate chips: ⅓ cup
Step 1: Add a piece of parchment paper to a baking sheet or very large plate—make sure the size you choose will fit in your freezer.
Step 2: Place the cookies, flat side up, on the lined baking sheet.
Step 3: With an approximately ¼ cup ice cream scoop, scoop the softened chocolate ice cream onto half of the cookies. (You can soften the ice cream either by letting it sit out for about 20 minutes before you need it, or warming it in the microwave for just a few seconds—you want it slightly soft, but not on the verge of melting!)
Step 4: Add the remaining cookies, round side up, on top of each scoop of ice cream.
Step 5: Very gently press the top cookies down to spread the ice cream a bit.
Step 6: Place the baking sheet in the freezer to firm up the ice cream, about 20 minutes.
Step 7: Add the sprinkles and mini chocolate chips to a shallow bowl and mix to combine.
Step 8: Once the sandwiches have firmed up in the freezer, very gently and firmly roll each one, along its side, into the sprinkle–chocolate chip mixture.
Step 9: Once they are all well coated, place them back on the baking sheet and into the freezer until you're ready to serve.
