Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

I’ve had my fair share of ice cream sandwiches over the years. Ice cream sandwiches and summer are practically synonymous. I mean a sandwich with two chocolate wafers, between a block of creamy ice cream, with the sun gleaming down, and melting around the edges.

I have great memories of going to my local supermarket with my dad to buy ice cream sandwiches, we would go straight to the freezer section and buy a box of ice cream sandwiches called ‘Sammies’ these particular sandwiches had chocolate chips mixed through the ice cream layer. After paying we would go straight to the car and each open up one and eat it right in the car. While the ice cream was a little soft, but delicious.

Today’s recipe is not really a recipe, more of an assembly. On how to make an ice cream sandwich cake, let’s get started!

    1. Cheyanne-
      I totally agree if there’s one thing I love about summer it’s the abundance of fruit and veggies! But I’m also excited for fall, because of boot and sweater weather. Also thanks, if you try it please let me know. Have a fantastic weekend. 🙂
