Ice Cream Sandwiches

Two of my most favorite things are chocolate chip cookies and ice cream. The other night, Lenny and I were in the mood for something sweet, cold and creamy, so we decided to whip up some ice cream sandwiches using the chocolate chip cookies I had made the other day and some vanilla ice cream.

What you need:

  • Cookies
  • Ice cream
  • Melted chocolate for dipping (optional)

Take one of your cookies and place on plastic wrap. Lenny uses  a  roll of tape to keep the cookies and ice cream nice and tidy. As a matter of fact, he actually made all the sandwiches!  Just lay the plastic wrap on top of the roll, drop a cookie into the middle followed by a scoop of ice cream, and top with another cookie.  

      

I like my ice cream sandwiches chocolate covered so I melted some chocolate chips and dipped my sandwich…yummy! After dipping, set on some wax or parchment paper.

 

Pop into the freezer for a bit…

and then dig in!

Homemade Mini Corn Dogs

Mmmmmmm…I love corndogs. Unfortunately, my hubby does not, which means buying a family pack of this delicious goodness is out of the question.

So, I figured I’d break out my Babycakes cupcake maker and whip up my own personal batch! Not to mention, they’re alot healthier than your usual fried version!

What you’ll need:

  • Cupcake maker (or you can just use a regular muffin pan…works great too!)
  • Corn muffin mix
  • Hotdogs
  • Ketchup and mustard =)

Prepare the corn muffin mix as directed on package and cut up your hotdogs into bite-size pieces. Pour a bit of the batter into your muffin pan or cupcake maker, about half way. Drop in a piece of hotdog and then cover with more batter.

A side note here: Add more hotdogs if you’d like. I think next time I make these I’ll make my hotdog pieces bigger.

 Mine baked up in about 9 minutes in the cuppycake maker so just keep an eye on them!

Enjoy!
