Two Ingredient Ice cream sandwiches

0 comments

Satisfying a sweet craving or treating both kids and adults is a joyous task. Embracing the universally adored combo of Oreos and ice cream, these two-ingredient ice cream sandwiches redefine simplicity with charm and deliciousness.

Beginning with Oreos

Oreos play the role of “bread” here, offering a delightful balance of flavors. Their subtle sweetness complements various ice cream flavors, creating a perfect texture contrast for the ultimate treat. Whether it’s classic chocolate or the beloved Golden Oreos, both work wonders in this recipe.

Pairings

Quality ice cream truly elevates the experience. While personal preferences dictate flavor choices, premium ice cream works best due to its density and slow-melting nature. Chocolate Oreos pair beautifully with mint chocolate chip, black raspberry, or coffee flavors, while Golden Oreos harmonize with lighter, fruity notes like strawberry, peaches and cream, or pistachio.

Making

Assembling these delights is simple, yet a clever trick ensures a perfect ratio of ice cream to cookie in every bite. Mold the ice cream into a parchment tube, freezing it to create neat, sliceable discs. This method ensures uniform, flat ice cream slices ready to partner with their cookie halves.

Storing information

These delectable ice cream sandwiches tend to disappear quickly, but if you manage to save some, storing them in an airtight container preserves their texture. Letting the cookies soften slightly overnight in the freezer (about 12 hours) yields a tender yet crunchy delight. The longer they sit, the softer the cookies become, offering varied textures for different preferences.

2-Ingredient Ice Cream Sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 16 Oreo sandwich cookies (plus extras if needed)

  • 1 pint premium ice cream (refer to recipe note), frozen

Directions

  • Prepare the ice cream:
    Place a piece of parchment paper (at least 18 inches long) on a flat surface.
    Release the ice cream from the pint onto the parchment paper.
    Cut the ice cream cylinder in half lengthwise, placing the halves side by side.
    Shape the ice cream into a log, resembling the diameter of an Oreo cookie.
    Wrap tightly with parchment paper and freeze until solid for at least 1 hour.
  • Prepare the Oreos:
    Separate the Oreo cookies and scrape away the filling using a knife.
    Arrange 16 cookie halves (scraped side up) on a baking sheet.
  • Slice the ice cream:
    Once the ice cream log is frozen solid, remove it from the freezer.
    Slice into approximately 16 discs, each about 1/2 inch thick, using a sharp knife.
  • Assemble:
    Quickly place one ice cream disc on each cookie half and cover with the remaining cookie halves.
    Freeze on the baking sheet until the ice cream solidifies.
  • Enjoying the sandwiches:
    For a tender yet crunchy cookie, wait about 12 hours before indulging.
    After 24 hours or more, the cookies will soften, resembling commercial ice cream sandwiches.
    Best consumed within a week.
