There’s this new invention called facebook.

Have you heard of it?

People say it’s taking the internet by storm.


There’s also this new bonus to facebook too, that I’m not sure you’ve heard about.

No, it’s not that dumb timeline.  That’s just stupid.

It’s the super hero powers that you can get by using it.

Actually it’s one super hero power, specifically.

It’s called bravery.

I’ve honestly never seen anything like it.


I mean, in real life you would never have the courage to legitimately stalk people from your past.  That would require a lot of effort, honestly.  The black clothes, the ski-mask, the potential jail time.  Really, who’s gonna go to all the trouble?  Enter, facebook bravery.

What about the games?  I mean really?  Creating your own city or farm or pet hotel…it’s time consuming.  Would you ever, before facebook, think it was cool to ask your friend to harvest your corn for you?  Kind of presumptuous, if you ask me.  And really, what would your 2002 self say if you were to tell him/her that you would be spending hours building a virtual city online?  Really…I want your honest answer on that.  Not judging here, just observing.  Luckily you have facebook bravery to unabashedly ask your friends to become a virtual neighbor and do some of the heavy lifting for you.  It takes a village.

But when people get to be their most super-heroish is when they leave comments on your wall, or personal page that basically would get them punched in the face in real life.   That’s my most favorite.  I just imagine people sitting behind their desk with a giant “H” embroidered on their shirt typing away.

Don’t get me wrong, I get facebook powers from time to time.  Not too long ago I posted a picture on my wall of a bumper sticker that I thought was inappropriate and people lost their shizz. The thing is, I fancy myself a middleman.  Just bringing the news to the people.  I’m a giver like that…like a cookie-making Walter Cronkite.

And it’s pretty great to have a different opinion.  I’m open to it.  Just don’t let that super power take you over to the dark side…because unless you’re James Earl Jones, it’s not a good look.


So in efforts to solidify our friendship I decided to make you ice cream sandwiches.  And not just any ice cream sandwich.  Key Lime ones.

Don’t hate, appreciate.


How to Make Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

What’s great about these is you all you need is a mixer and a freezer.  Well, and all the ingredients…and a spoon…and some time…

You mix up your ice cream/key lime filling, which is super easy.  Heavy cream, Key Lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, sugar…it just keeps getting better doesn’t it?

The consistency will look like this:

Pour that into a plastic container and freeze it for 5-6 hours.

At that point it will be almost frozen, but still spreadable.

If you forget it and leave it in longer, it’s not a problem, just let it sit on the counter until it warms up to a spreadable consistency.

Then assemble your ice cream sandwiches using graham crackers!

You’ll use about 1/4 cup of ice cream on each…

Top the ice cream with another graham cracker and then you can individually wrap them in cling wrap and freeze until they are completely firm, about another hour or so.

You can make these days in advance, which is pretty awesome.

Trust me, these are amazing.

If you make the ice cream a day ahead leave on counter until it’s softened enough to spread on the graham crackers. Do not microwave.

I have all the ingredients ready to make this! Do you think I can make this recipe using an ice cream maker instead, without whipping the cream?

After having saved this recipe for over a year I FINALLY made it! Next time I’m going to freeze the ice cream in a glass pan so I can slice the correct shapes for the graham crackers. 🙂


Oh. My. Gosh. I cannot wait to make these in the summer! I just stumbled on your site tonight and this was one of the first recipes I saw, which made me totally excited!

I love Key Lime anything yummm. I make something similar with sugar free jello, sugare free cool whip and low fat graham crackers and yougurt. I mix this up put it in a 11×7 paper cover with saran wrap and freeze. You need 12 crackers gently cut in 1/2 nd you cut the key lime mixture into 12 squares and fill between the two crackers. I wrap them individually and keep in the freezer. You can mix your yougurt and sugar free jello flavors and this is a great low cal treat. 1 box of sugar free jello, 1/4 cup… Read more »

Love, love, LOVE Key Lime. Love. And, yeah, you seem to get the FB crazies on your page. (You know I just jinxed myself there, right?!?) I’m off to look for this bumper sticker. Better put on my cape…

What I’ve “enjoyed” about FacePage (as my Dad calls it) is that you can have a first row seat at watching grown women’s eating disorders/food issues/ compulsive exercising up close. Its like high school all over again– just with more tagging.

I am not a fruit or tart dessert type- I love me some chocolate…however, key limepie reminds me of my Gram. She always ordered it and made me try it while we were in Florida together years ago…it really is tasty! I wish I was a baker!


Liking these my friend! Thinking these would be perfect make-aheads for the next kids party.

Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts

It is amazing what people will say and do on facebook, but would never do in real life! Hopefully these sandwiches can bring peace to social media!
