Fall Ice Cream Sandwich
These turned out sooo yummy and the good news is, although they have quite a bit to them, they are pretty quick and easy. This is a dessert you can do ahead if you need to. In my neck of the woods, it is still pretty warm during the fall, so I thought I'd make a new fall dessert, that can still be yummy when it's warm.
I grew up having peanut butter ice cream with my mom as a special treat occasionally. It is pretty addicting, so steer clear if you need! I definitely got some girlfriends addicted in college. :)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches
Servings: 6 sandwiches
1 package Devils Food Cake mix WITH PUDDING (in the mix)
Peanut Butter M&Ms for the top
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients (except m&ms) until combined. Form into small cookie balls and place on a non-stick backing sheet. Press M&Ms into top of the cookie. I chose fall colors to accent the season. Bake for 8mins.
Let cookies cool completely. I chose to freeze the cookies, so that they would freeze even quicker when I added the ice cream to them.
4 scoops of your favorite vanilla ice cream
3 Tbsp smooth peanut butter (I use Jiff)
Let the ice cream sit for a couple minutes to soften while you lay out the cookies. Begin stirring the peanut butter into the ice cream until smooth and completely combined. Put a layer of ice cream onto the cookie and add a top cookie. Once all the sandwiches are assembled. Place in the freezer for approx. 2 hours to harden.
Overall, pretty simple and easy to do in advance!
Happy Friday! Sweet & Simple.
