Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

A few years ago I made these ice cream sandwiches to take over to a friend’s house for dessert! They were the BIGGEST hit ever and I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to make them again. Well, Valentine’s came around and these sweet friends welcomed their daughter into the world! I knew just what to bring when we stopped by to say hello!

Luckily I had pinned the recipe on Pinterest!  The pin led me back to and their amazing homemade ice cream sandwich recipe. I followed it almost completely. *Find recipe in it’s entirety at the bottom of the post (with my few changes!).

Here are a few things to know…

1. The soft “graham” cracker dough gets kind of clumpy when you are mixing the ingredients! Don’t worry…after you chill the dough it will roll together nicely.


2. Add a little mint extract to your dough to give it a little extra minty kick!

3. Lay the dough between cling wrap and before rolling out. You will thank me for this one!

4. Cut your dough apart in a grid and use the back of a skewer to poke the holes giving the complete graham cracker effect.

5. Add some green food coloring to your mint chocolate chip ice cream to make it more green (especially for St. Patrick’s Day!).

  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  3. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  4. 2 sticks of softened unsalted butter
  5. 1 1/2 confectioners' sugar
  6. 2 large egg yolks
  7. 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  8. 1 teaspoon of mint extract
  9. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (or flavor of your choice)
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together cocoa, flour, and salt together. In a separate bowl mix the butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract, and mint extract. Slowly add the cocoa mixture until well blended. Divide the dough into two halves & roll flat into a rectangle about 1/4 in. thick. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  2. 2. While the dough chills, line a 9x13 pyrex dish with parchment paper. Pour in the ice cream and smooth flat. Return to the freezer.
  3. 3. Divide the dough into squares or rectangles and place on a lined baking sheet. Use a fork or skewer to poke holes in the dough & bake for 15 minutes.
  4. 4. While the sandwiches cool remove the ice cream from the freezer and cut into coordinating squares and rectangles.
  5. 5. Stack your sandwiches and wrap in plastic. Return to the freezer for about an hour to firm up!
  6. 6. Enjoy.

  8. So, these do look great but I expected to see GRAHAM flour as an ingredient hence the name. I am going to consult a chart to how to substitute and try them out. Perhaps the graham should be left out of the title for now though. Good cooking!

  9. Those look so good!! Since there probably isn’t an ingredient in there that I’m not allergic to (except chocolate) I’m gonna have to try this gluten and dairy free. BTW, your photos are beautiful.
