Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches- National Ice Cream Sandwich Day

Can you ever tire of an ice cream sandwich?  How can you resist?  Here is a simple twist on an old favorite.  We whipped these out in minutes and even shared them with our neighbors.

Start with chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, or even chocolate wafers if your grocery store carries them.  Chose the ice cream of your choice.  We used chocolate chip for half of them, and cookies and cream for the other half.

Scoop ice cream onto one cookie and sandwich it between another cookie.

The kids were getting a little goofy, but they made 18 of them without my help.

We wrapped them individually in celophane wrap.

Did you really think we were going to eat all 18 ice cream sandwiches?  After we froze them for about an hour, we put them in brown paper bags, created this fun tag, and attached it to the bag with ribbon.

We ran off to share them with some friends right at dinner time. 

"I doubt whether the world holds for any one a more soul-stirring surprise than the first adventure with ice-cream." Heywood Broun
