Choose your favorite ice cream for this. I prefer vanilla bean, but you could use anything. Chocolate would also be yummy.
Allow your ice cream to soften slightly before scooping it between 2 completely cooled peanut butter cookies.
Want an even more indulgent treat?
Immediately after scooping the ice cream between the cookies, you could roll each ice cream sandwich in a plate of chocolate chips, ice cream touching the chips to pick them up. After doing that, wrap each ice cream sandwich in cling wrap and place in the freezer to harden before serving.
Other ideas to roll your sandwiches in are sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, peanut butter chips. crushed candy bars, nuts, or coconut flakes. Make them all different and watch people duke it out for their favorite!
