5 delicious ice cream sandwich recipes that are perfect for summer

Ice cream sandwiches are a classic summer treat. In fact, they’re so popular during the summer months that they can even get a little boring. A scoop of ice cream sandwiched between two cookies? Delicious, but nothing you haven’t seen before. Fortunately, chefs on TikTok have started to craft their own creative ice cream sandwich recipes using interesting new ingredients. Here are five ice cream sandwich recipes that will have your mouth watering.

1. Bacon-coated ice cream sandwich

If you love combining sweet and savory flavors, this is the ice cream sandwich for you. It also happens to be extremely easy to make. Just cook up some bacon, add a bit of maple syrup, chop the bacon into tiny pieces, and toss it in a bowl. Then, simply roll your ice cream sandwich in the bacon until it’s coated, and your sweet and savory treat is ready to eat.

2. Homemade macaron ice cream sandwich

This classy take on the ice cream sandwich swaps out the traditional cookie for a homemade macaron. TikToker @matthewinthekitchen combines sugar, almond flour, egg whites and a dash of red food coloring to create fluffy pink macarons for the “bread” part of the ice cream sandwich. He then uses store-bought ice cream for the filling to create an ice cream sandwich that he claims is “perfect for summer.”

3. Gluten-free ice cream sandwich

Just because you opt for gluten-free food doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious ice cream sandwich. This mouthwateringly simple recipe uses only four ingredients. The recipe’s creator mixes peanut butter, brown sugar and an egg, then forms them into cookies and bakes them for 10 minutes. Once baked, TikToker @kelseylikestocook adds ice cream, as well as a bonus fifth ingredient: rainbow sprinkles. The result is a delicious gluten-free peanut butter-flavored ice cream sandwich.

4. Churro ice cream sandwich

Tired of using regular cookies for your ice cream sandwich? Try this churro ice cream sandwich instead. The recipe involves piping churro dough swirls onto a baking sheet, freezing them and then frying them up and coating them in a cinnamon-sugar mix. The result is a fried churro “cookie” that can be used as the base of your sandwich. 

5. S’mores ice cream sandwich

This ice cream sandwich proves that s’mores and ice cream are meant to be. For this recipe, TikToker @dessert.hound simply takes a store-bought ice cream sandwich and coats it in marshmallow fluff. Then, they safely and lightly heat the marshmallow fluff with a culinary blowtorch until it’s melted and golden brown. The result is a sweet treat that’s frozen in the center and warm on the outside.
