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 and I realized that my idea – though still genius – is far from original. Others have thought of it before me. Like, a LOT of people…hehe Ohh well! I still think it’s a great idea!
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’s 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. If you like Oreos and you like ice cream, you’ll love this easy-to-make desert!
I used coconut ice cream, because it is like the vanilla equivalent in Southeast Asia. But, you can use whichever flavor you prefer. I also think chocolate ice cream would be an interesting and delicious twist on this recipe!
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 the angles and settings, the sandwich filling started melting in front of my eyes and oozing out. The heat and humidity have definitely made things challenging and interesting when it comes to creating content (especially pictures) for this blog!
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. I like this idea and of course, I LOVE eating Oreo ice cream sandwiches but there were a few too many for that to be a realistic option!
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. I personally think it accurately describes my experience making this recipe!
Nothing like a shot from Helene Dujardin or Naomi from Bakers Royale, but not bad for a first of its kind. What do you think? Give this recipe a chance, especially if you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert recipe! Although, if you’re planning to make it anywhere tropical, like me, be warned, you may get more than your bargained for! Share your results with me and your pictures as well! I am always glad to hear from my readers!
