I love a simple way to make the everyday feel a little more special. These Red, White and Blue ice cream sandwiches are just that, a quick way to serve up something fun for the 4th of July. I actually do love to cook and make things from scratch, but I’m finding that increasingly hard with both Jake and Max around. I literally get distracted or asked a question so many times in the middle of cooking dinner or lunch, that I’m starting to lose faith in my ability in the kitchen. Yesterday I burnt a grilled cheese sandwich due to having to take a certain someone to the potty RIGHT NOW!!!
While ordinarily I would be all, “Look at these delicious homemade ice cream sandwiches.” The place I’m at in life right now is more, “Hey! Here’s a quick and dirty secret on how to make store bought ice cream sandwiches snazzy!”
So here’s the breakdown on how to impress your friends in 5 minutes or less.
Right before eating, unwrap your ice cream sandwiches.
On a plate swirl red sprinkles and blue sprinkles for an even mix.
Gently dip each side of the ice cream sandwich into the sprinkles and create your pretty red, white and blue ice cream sandwiches.
Seem surprised when everyone is all, “You are SOOO amazing, how did you ever do this?!” Ha!
Just remember they are ice cream so they will melt, duh. If you need to make them in advance place them on a tray lined with parchment paper in the freezer immediately after sprinkling.
I love adding little touches for the holidays and these are perfect for when you are hosting a 4th of July party or event. What else are you bringing to your summer BBQs lovelies? I need more life hacks, ha!
