Our Berry-licious Ice-Cream Sandwiches Recipe Is a Taste of Summertime Bliss

This frozen treat combines quick from-scratch chocolate cookies with raspberry-vanilla ice cream

If you need a frozen treat to beat the heat, whip up this recipe for Ice-Cream Sandwiches. It’s a homemade version of the freezer aisle favorite as it takes raspberry-vanilla ice cream and sandwiches it between chocolate cookies. Optional toppings include chocolate sauce and raspberries. Each bite of these DIY ice cream sandwiches offers a combination of sweet, decadent and tart flavors. Also, the chewy cookies nicely complement the soft ice cream. These sandwiches prep in about an hour — and will become your go-to treat this summer!

The ice cream filling is made with a store-bought vanilla flavor that’s softened and mixed with fresh raspberries. However, you can use another ice cream flavor such as chocolate, salted caramel or pistachio. Also, fruits like ripe strawberries or blueberries can be used in place of raspberries. Tell us in the comments how you’d customize your own batch of ice cream sandwiches.
