Ice Cream Sandwiches
We have a simple, yet amazing recipe for you. This has been on our list to post for months and we are super excited to finally get it out to you. We couldn't let summer slip by without giving you this recipe, although we eat these all year round. Ice cream sandwiches are such a fun and delicious way to cool off when it's hot outside. We have fond memories of eating ice cream sandwiches growing up. Once we had to go free from so many foods, we never even considered that we could eat ice cream sandwiches again. It turns out they are simple and easy to make. All it takes is Rustic Scoop™ Chocolate Cake and Cupcake Mix and your favorite safe ice cream. If you like to make your own ice cream, we have our family recipe below.
Ice Cream Sandwiches
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Follow all of the directions on the back of your Rustic Scoop™ Chocolate Cake and Cupcake Mix through mixing everything together. Once you have mixed everything together, fit two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Evenly divide the batter onto each baking sheet. Use a spatula to evenly smooth out the batter on each baking sheet. Do your best to flatten the batter evenly. Bake for 9-11 minutes on 350° F or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Once the two cookie sheets of cake are done, use a pizza cutter to cut the cake in half the long way so you have two almost squares. Let the cake pieces cool completely, then individually wrap in plastic wrap and freeze until solid.
Vanilla Ice Cream
32 oz Coconut Cream
1 T Vanilla extract
1 C Coconut sugar
2 t Guar gum
¼ C Tapioca starch
1/2 teaspoon Peppermint extract in place of vanilla
Safe cookie dough
Your favorite candy bar crushed up
In a large bowl and mixer, mix all dry ingredients together well. Slowly add the coconut cream into the dry ingredients, mixing until well combined. Place all liquid into the frozen insert of an ice cream maker. My electric ice cream maker takes 20 minutes to turn into ice cream, but churn until yours is done. This makes a nice soft ice cream. If you do not prefer to use guar gum or tapioca starch, you can omit them. The ice cream won't be as soft if you omit them, but fantastic either way.
Take your frozen cake sheets out of the freezer. Evenly spread your preferred ice cream while it is soft onto one side of each cookie sheet of cake. You want the ice cream to be about 1 inch thick. Take the other cake half and put it on top of the ice cream. Gently press down to get the ice cream as even as you can. Wrap in plastic wrap until fully frozen. Before you cut your ice cream sandwiches, cut the ragged edges off and eat them. :) This will make your ice cream sandwiches look nice and professional. The edges takes just as good though. Then take a very sharp knife and cut into desired shapes and sizes. Individually wrap in wax paper, store in an airtight container in the freezer.
If you are a perfectionist, spread your ice cream on a new baking sheet the same size of your cake sheet pan. Spread the ice cream evenly until it is 1 inch thick. Put in the freezer until it is mostly hard. Cut your ice cream in half using a pizza cutter. Carefully place one half of your ice cream onto one half of your cake, then place the other half of the cake on top of the ice cream. Gently press down to get the ice cream as even as you can. Wrap in plastic wrap until fully frozen.
