Whether you want a small nibble, have little ones reaching for a treat, or seek a creative way to devour a combination of cookies and ice cream, these 2-ingredient ice cream sandwiches will surely be a hit. The universally beloved combination of Oreos and ice cream makes for a mouthwatering treat that won't last long. SSP prepared the recipe.

Total time: 70 mins

Prep time: 10 mins

Chill time: 60 mins

Servings: 16 servings

Yield: 16 to 20 sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • 16 Oreo sandwich cookies (plus extras as needed if any cookies break)
  • 1 pint premium ice cream (see recipe note), straight from the freezer

Method:

1. Prepare the ice cream. Lay a piece of parchment paper, at least 18 inches long, on a flat surface. Carefully run a dull knife around the edge of the pint to loosen the ice cream. Let the ice cream slip out onto the parchment. Cut the cylinder in half lengthwise and position the two halves next to each other, end to end. Wrap the parchment tightly around the ice cream and use your hands to quickly and gently mold it into a log shape, matching the diameter of one Oreo cookie. Place the wrapped ice cream log in the freezer and allow it to freeze for at least 1 hour.

2. Prepare the Oreos. Work on a baking sheet that fits in the freezer. Twist each Oreo cookie open and use a dull knife to scrape away the filling. Discard the filling or share it with a sugar-desperate child nearby. Repeat this process with the remaining Oreos and arrange 16 cookie halves with the scraped side facing up. Set aside.

3. Slice the ice cream. Once the ice cream log is completely frozen, please remove it from the freezer. Using a thin, sharp knife, carefully slice the log into approximately 16 slices, each approximately 1/2 inch thick.

4. Assemble. Move swiftly to prevent the ice cream from melting. Place one ice cream slice on each upturned cookie, and top it with the other half of the cookie. Place the baking sheet containing the ice cream sandwiches in the freezer, allowing the ice cream to solidify completely before transferring the sandwiches to an airtight container.

Enjoy your homemade ice cream sandwiches with your preferred texture. For a tender cookie with a slight crunch, allow the sandwiches to sit for about 12 hours before consuming. If a softer, commercially-like texture appeals to you, wait for 24 hours or more. These delightful treats are best enjoyed within 1 week.
