Ice Cream Sandwiches

Valentine's Day has ultimately provided me with an excuse to express my sweet tooth at any given moment. These bite-sized treats will warm the hearts of anyone you serve to. Who can say no to a perfectly crafted homemade ice cream sandwich? My filler preferences are pictured at the bottom of the post; but roll these in pink sprinkles and you're destined to please a Valentine. Follow my steps below to create my new favorite dessert!

Store-bought ginger snap wafers
Assorted ice creams and gelatos (see below)
Mini chocolate chips or sprinkles (optional)

1. Remove ice cream containers from freezer and let stand for 10 minutes. Place chocolate chips in a small bowl.

2. Using an ice cream scooper, drop one scoop in the center of a ginger snap. Gently press a second ginger snap on top, allowing excess ice cream to hang over sides. Using the dull side of a knife (or an offset spatula), follow edge of sandwich to trim off excess ice cream and shape a clean line.

3. Roll in chocolate chips and sprinkles, if desired. Place flat on a tray and immediately freezer until serving.
