Do you like the combination of Oreos and ice cream? Then you will love these easy homemade Oreo ice cream sandwiches!
I thought I had come up with kind of a genius idea, when thinking up these homemade Oreo ice cream sandwiches.
A quick Google search later I had to realize that my idea – though still genius – is far from original. Others have thought of it before me. Like, a LOT of people…hehe.
Coming to terms with my non-original inner genius didn’t hold me back one single bit from executing this idea. Here it comes (these are also the instructions for this ‘recipe’ – so pay good attention as it might be over sooner than you think):
Twist Oreo cookies apart, place a scoop of softened ice cream on one half and top with the other!
And that’s it. It is a good idea to let the sandwiches set up in the freezer for about an hour, but then there is nothing that is holding you back from enjoying a super easy, homemade Oreo ice cream sandwich.
I used coconut ice cream, because it is like the vanilla equivalent of Southeast Asia. But you can use whichever flavor you prefer.
If you want to make your own homemade coconut ice cream, try my base recipe for dairy-free ice cream.
Now let me tell you what is NOT AT ALL easy: taking pictures of ice cream in 35 degree (95 F) extremely humid weather. Before I had even fully figured out angle and settings, the sandwich filling started melting in front of my eyes and oozing out.
First I wanted to cry. Then I was ready to just eat these Oreo sandwiches all by myself and not tell you about this genius idea – because that would have meant admitting to this photography fail.
But as I was starting to clean up, I noticed I had a perfect photo-op for one of those ‘slightly messy overhead shots’. I am sure there is a more professional description for this photography style, I just don’t know it.
Nothing like a shot from Helene Dujardin or Naomi from Bakers Royale, but not bad for a first of this kind. Or what do you think?
- 1 package Oreo cookies
- 1 tub ice cream (1/2 gallon / 2 L)
- Take ice cream out of the freezer to soften up for 10 minutes. Twist Oreo cookies apart, place one scoop of ice cream on one cookie and close with the other half.
- Optionally, place Oreo ice cream sandwiches back in the freezer to set up for 1 hour before enjoying!
Now to take these ice cream sandwiches to the next level of awesomeness, you could make your own homemade oreos, or these flourless 5-ingredient vegan chocolate cookies, and pair them with freshly churned homemade ice cream!
