Friend Friday: Amy's chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches

Happy Friend Friday!  I'm sooo excited to introduce my creative friend Amy, guest blogger from Family Embellishments.  Amy is a great friend, and has the unique ability to turn the ordinary into extraordinary!  Check out this cute idea, and don't forget to visit her blog by clicking here.

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 cellophane 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)

Thanks for posting Amy!
Love this idea, and love it that you ended with a quote!
I can't wait to make these with my kids!
