10 ways with ice cream sandwiches

We love checking out trends and putting our own stamp of flavour on them, so we couldn't resist giving the ice cream sandwich a serious taste makeover. These sandwiches are fruity, chocolatey, boozy and above all, tasty.
 

Banana

Three stacked ice cream sandwiches and one on its side

Peanut butter and banana is a flavour match made in heaven. Bake your own cookies in no time using creamy peanut butter and dark chocolate chunks, then fill with a blend of banana and vanilla ice cream.

Choc hazelnut

Chocolate and hazelnut ice cream sandwich

This decadent dessert is a chocoholic's dream and is ready to devour in just five minutes flat. Take two scoops of salted caramel and chocolate ice cream and squish it between your favourite chocolate cookies. For a gorgeously nutty finish, roll the sides of the ice cream sandwich in chopped hazelnuts.

Caramel & coffee

Wafer ice cream sandwich filled with coffee ice cream

Who says you can't enjoy biscuits and coffee for pudding as well as your afternoon cuppa? The winning component in this super sandwich is the chocolate-coated coffee beans. Mix these with thick, creamy coffee ice cream for powerful little bursts of flavour. This filling is generously sandwiched between two Belgian-style stroopwafels to make a gorgeously crisp and chewy caramel shell.

PBJ

Peanut Butter & Jelly ice cream sandwich with peanut topping

What could be better than a peanut-encrusted ice cream treat? For fans of this childhood flavour nostalgia trip, we've worked out the perfect formula. Sandwich raspberry ripple ice cream between peanut butter cookies, and cover with a sprinkling of chopped salted peanuts around your ice cream edges. 

If you want to really push the boat out, try making your own raspberry ripple ice cream to go with your biscuits.
 

Flapjack

Flapjack ice cream sandwich

This terrific traybake in ice cream form has chewy biscuits and thick clotted cream for an indulgent, crowd-pleasing pud. Simply swirl golden syrup through clotted cream ice cream, then sandwich between oaty cookies. Use cookies with dried fruit for the ultimate flapjack nostalgia flavour.

We recommend baking some fresh maple, pecan & raisin oaty cookies as your sandwich materal.
