Happy National Ice Cream Sandwich Day! To celebrate, I’m going to answer a question that’s been on all of your minds: Does Magic Shell freeze when you put it on an ice cream sandwich? Yes! And you should try it. Here’s a picture of some Lemonade Magic Shell Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies.
You do have to stick the whole thing back in the freezer momentarily, but it works, and the shell adds yet another texture to the sandwich. In this picture I’ve used
To make lemon ice cream sandwich cookies, mix an 18.25 oz box of lemon cake mix with 1/3 cup of oil and 2 eggs. Shape the dough into 20 balls and put them on a foil lined (no cooking spray or grease required) baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool, then put them in the freezer. Soften some vanilla ice cream. Sandwich softened vanilla ice cream between frozen cookies and put back in the freezer until very firm. When ready to drizzle with Lemonade Magic Shell, arrange the cookies on a tray or baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Drizzle the Magic Shell over the cookies and quickly put the whole tray in the freezer until very firm.
If you’re not in the mood for a cookie sandwiched with ice cream and want to celebrate using the traditional shaped frozen confection, why not go all out and make an ice cream sandwich cake? There are tons of different recipes out there, but my favorite is still this one.
The Grasshopper Ice Cream Sandwich Cake is also very good.
