Ice Cream Sandwich Party: A DIY Dessert Course

October 30, 2017

To help you entertain with ease all the way through the dessert course, we've partnered with Klondike®, makers of ice cream treats and a variety of ice cream bars.

Is there a more nostalgic dessert than the ice cream sandwich? Chewy cookies, cold ice cream, maybe a chocolatey coating…it’s impossible not to feel like a kid again thinking about these frozen desserts. But just because we’re not kids anymore doesn't mean we can't enjoy an ice cream sandwich—have you ever considered an ice cream sandwich dessert party?

Ice cream sandwiches perfect for entertaining, because you can let your guests get creative and assemble their own desserts. Set out a variety of cookies (from snickerdoodles to classic chocolate chip), some creamy toppings (think gooey caramel or pumpkin pie filling), and crispy bits for crunch (salted popcorn, colored sprinkles, toasted pepitas…go wild!)—then let your guests stack their own sandwiches with creative cookie-filling-topping combos. You’ll feel like kids again again in no time...but with way better taste.

What’s your favorite ice cream sandwich flavor combo? Let us know in the comments!
