Here is an easy idea for a sweet treat this Valentine's Day. Instead of cupcakes this year, why not make Valentine's Ice Cream Sandwiches!
My kids had been asking me to try to make ice cream sandwiches so I decided that Valentine's Day would be a great occasion to try out these new sweet treats. I am usually a homemade cookie kinda girl but I saw these Pillsbury Ready To Bake Hearts cookies in the store the other day and thought that they would be perfect for making Valentine's Ice Cream Sandwiches. To make, I simply baked the Hearts cookies according to the package directions and let cool completely, about 1 hour.
Once cooled, I took a scoop of strawberry ice cream, placed it on the bottom of one cookie, and gently pressed another cookie on top to make a sandwich. I used my finger (it was clean!) to run along the sides of the ice cream and cookie to make it smooth and to remove any ice cream overflow. Next, I placed the sandwiches in the freezer for about 30 minutes to harden before wrapping them individually in plastic wrap and freezing for storage.
You could, of course, use homemade cookies to create your own version of this yummy treat. I personally just liked the Valentine's Hearts and the easiness of this "recipe". Have fun and enjoy!
