Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. You'll love this collection of delectable ice cream sandwich recipes. Watch out for the drips!
Ice cream sandwiches are a fun, portable dessert that you can make ahead of time and keep in the freezer until you're ready to serve. They're the perfect end to a summer BBQ, or a surprise for little hands after an afternoon in the sun.
Our collection of ice cream sandwich recipes has something for everyone. Make your own cookies, make your own ice cream or just make one and buy the other. There's chocolate and mint, strawberry and rhubarb, bourbon and ginger, matcha and vanilla, peanut butter and banana - the flavour combos are endless. Round or square, coated in sprinkles or chocolate - you can create your own variations.
If dairy isn't your jam or gluten and you don't like to co-exist, have no fear! We've got dairy free and gluten free options here too. There's something for everyone!
1. Ginger Molasses Cookies with Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream Sandwiches
Let's start with one for the grown ups because you know what? We can have ice cream sandwiches for dinner if we want! And if that's what we want, we can't think of a better one than My Kitchen Love's Ginger Molasses Cookies with Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream Sandwiches. We won't tell the kids if you disappear with one of these for 10 minutes!
2. Carrot Cake Ice Cream Sandwiches
We've often said that sprinkles make everything 486.2% better. And while these grain free Carrot Cake Ice Cream Sandwiches from Crumb Top Baking are fabulous sprinkle-free, who can't help but smile when they see them coated in a fun sprinkle medley?
3. Paleo Chocolate Cookies and Ice Cream Sandwiches
Ice cream sandwiches are for everyone! These paleo and gluten-free chocolate cookies topped with sea salt from Holistic Foodie make a great base for a Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich that everyone can eat!
4. Chocolate Covered Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
When we first saw Domestic Dreamboat's Chocolate Covered Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches we were immediately hit by a wave of nostalgia - this photo reminded us of those marshmallow puff cookies we sometimes got as a treat when we were kids (the ones with the jam inside!) or even s'mores! While these ice cream sandwiches are nothing like either of those there is definitely something nostalgic and fun about them - they're for the kid in everyone!
5. Homemade Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches (Dairy Free)
For those who are lactose intolerant or who have a dairy allergy, ice cream isn't always a treat! But have no fear, there are so many delicious dairy free options out there now. Or, you can make your own at home! This homemade coconut ice cream from Chef Sous Chef serves as the base for their Homemade Coconut Ice Cream Sandwiches!
6. Mint Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches
Mint and chocolate are a classic ice cream combo and Mint Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches like these from Crumb are a summertime favourite that need to be on your dessert menu. Cool refreshing mint and fudge-y chocolate. It's the peanut butter and jam of the ice cream world!
7. Strawberry Rhubarb Ripple Ice Cream Sandwiches (GF)
Another classic combo, strawberry and rhubarb, makes for a great ice cream flavour. My Island Bistro's Strawberry Rhubarb Ripple Ice Cream Sandwiches use a gluten free snickerdoodle cookie as a base, and who doesn't love a snickerdoodle?
8. Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
My personal favourite ice cream sandwich combo is oatmeal cookies teamed up with classic vanilla ice cream. Even as a kid I would take my mom's homemade oatmeal cookies and spread vanilla ice cream on them with a spoon on the rare occasion when I was allowed to have a cookie and ice cream for dessert! Which is why Art and the Kitchen's Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches are on my must try list. Chewy oatmeal cookies beg for vanilla ice cream. Trying new flavour combos is fun but a good, solid classic you can come back to again and again is a comforting thought!
9. WW Black Forest Ice Cream Sandwiches
If you're following the WW plan then you are going to love these Black Forest Ice Cream Sandwiches from Food Meanderings. They're only 3 points and 68 calories. The secret? Homemade chocolate frozen yogurt, frozen cherries and chocolate graham crackers!
10. Matcha Ice Cream Sandwiches
If you're a matcha or green tea fan then Sift and Simmer's Matcha Ice Cream Sandwiches are one recipe you're going to have to try! Pair the brownie textured matcha cookies with a classic vanilla ice cream (hey, it's classic for a reason - it goes with everything!) for a cool matcha treat!
