Easy Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you ask me, ice cream sandwiches are pretty much the perfect summer dessert. Whenever you can’t decide whether you want a baked treat or a bowl of ice cream it’s always a good idea to just mash the two possibilities together and make an ice cream sandwich. Amiright?

Usually you’ll see homemade ice cream sandwiches made with cookies, and let me be clear: you can totally do that. If I were looking to make a cookie ice cream sandwich, I would bake up a batch of my best chocolate chip cookies, let them cool, then layer them with ice cream. The process would be exactly the same as in this recipe, except, with cookies.

BUT. Today we are doing things a little differently and making blondie ice cream sandwiches. (A blondie is basically a vanilla brownie.) We are also going to take things all next level by adding chopped Reeses Peanut Butter Cups to our ice cream. Oh yes, get ready for ice cream sandwich heaven.

Trust me on this. Ice cream sandwiched between two buttery blondie bars and filled with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups is a wonderful world.

What You’ll Need

Here’s what you’ll need to make ice cream sandwiches at home. Scroll down to the recipe card for specific amounts.

  • Butter – I prefer unsalted
  • Light Brown Sugar – You could also use dark brown sugar if that is what you have on hand.
  • Eggs
  • Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Kosher Salt
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – Use the snack sized variety, not the full sized ones.
  • Ice Cream – You can use whatever flavor you want, though I recommend vanilla. Let it soften on the counter for 20-30 minutes so that it is easier to spread.

How to Make The Best Ice Cream Sandwiches

Prep your tools. Preheat oven to 350° Spray a 11″x17″ jelly roll pan with non-stick spray and then line with parchment paper and spray again. (If you don’t have this exact size, it’s fine)

Make the blondie dough. Just make a simple cookie dough.  With all the regular stuff…butter, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla.  In your mixing bowl cream together butter and sugar. Add in eggs and vanilla beating until smooth. Turn mixer to low and add in baking soda, salt and flour.

Bake. Spread the batter in your prepared pan. I used an off-set spatula to spread, because the batter is sticky. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the blondie is set and golden.

Cool it. Remove the blondie from oven and let it cool in pan completely.

Soften your ice cream. When ready to assemble the ice cream sandwiches remove your ice cream from the freezer and allow to soften until spreadable. Chop your peanut butter cups into coarse pieces.

Let your ice cream get all melty.  Well, not too melty, just spreadable-melty.

Assemble the ice cream sandwiches. Transfer your blondie to a large cutting board and cut in half. Transfer one blondie half onto a large piece of foil, so when you are done assembling you can easily wrap them up.

Spread you ice cream evenly over top of the blondie, spreading to about 1 inch from edge. Sprinkle chopped peanut butter cups on top of that pressing gently into the ice cream.

And this is totally optional…top it will all those chopped peanut butter cups.  Totally optional…ha.

Now press your other blondie on top gently…And wrap it in foil.  Kinda tightly.

Freeze it for about 2 hours or more...it’s gonna be a long 2 hours.

Then cut it into squares.

And really.  Ice cream all year long.

I totally agree, ice cream is for every season.

Oh Shelly! No wonder I felt the sudden urge to pop over here tonight! This is the yummiest thing I’ve seen all day! I eat popsicles all year long. You know. Those long ones that you have to snip the plastic off the tip before you can eat it! Those are my fave! I also live in flip flops all year! I’ve seriously walked through snow frosted fields at the farm with flip flops on! Don’t ask why! Anyhow! I’ve got to make these!

Why did I never think to do this? Such a delicious idea!

As far as I’m concerned, ice cream has no season. You sometimes just have to put on some sweats, do a few jumping jacks to get your sweat on and then enjoy!

October 17, 2012 2:38 pm

I was really hoping those were peanut butter cups peaking out – yum!

October 17, 2012 2:24 pm

I like opposite day… except Im freezing, so I think Ill stick with my sweats and hot coffee, but I think this ice cream sandwich would go great with all of that 😀
