I Scream, You Scream

14 Oct

Summer’s over, but I’m a firm believer in eating ice cream no matter the outside temperature. Since today’s is National Dessert Day, I’m going to find every reason to have some dessert that includes ice cream today.

My family loves dessert, too, especially these easy-to-make ice cream (of course) sandwiches. They’re so easy that you can get your kids involved in the fun with you.

Ingredients

  • 1 package chocolate chip cookies (we use Chips Ahoy)
  • Ice cream of your choice
  • Sprinkles or small chocolate chips
  1. Take the ice cream out of the freezer to soften while you place the sprinkles and chocolate chips on plates.
  2. Stir the ice cream so it softens evenly.
  3. Scoop about 1 1/2 tablespoons of ice cream and put it on the flat side of one cookie.
  4. Put a second cookie on top of  the ice cream and gently squeeze.
  5. Roll the edges of the ice cream in the sprinkles or chocolate chips.
  6. Put the ice cream sandwich on a plate in the freezer.
  7. Set out a few minutes before serving.
Yummy!

A Holiday Celebrating Frappes?

4 Oct

Yes, it’s true. Today is National Frappe Day! According to HolidayInsights.com, it’s a holiday but they can’t find the creator or a presidential proclamation for it being a national holiday. But, since the definition of a frappe is an ice cream beverage drink, I’m not one to complain too much about this holiday.

So why not get into the holiday spirit and enjoy a pumpkin frappe. I’ll drink to that!
