Seems to be an influx of “thin” snacks on the market. Nature Valley Granola Thins (the peanut butter ones happen to be delicious) and Newton Fruit Thins, for instance.
I picked up a package of the Chocolate Raspberry Newton Fruit Thins at the store last weekend. They’re OK and would probably go nicely with my morning coffee, but as a stand alone dessert? Nahhhhh.
One look at the shape of the cookie, though, and theBOY and I had the exact same idea – ice cream sandwiches!! These are the perfect cookies to use to make your own. I picked up a pint of ice cream at the local ice cream stand and got to assembling!
Hint: Place the ice cream sandwiches in a zip lock bag and store in the freezer for at least 24 hours. This helps soften the cookie. The Newtons didn’t get as soft as I would have liked, but they were good nonetheless!
Another way to make a delicious, low-calorie ice cream treat at home is to use chocolate graham crackers and cool whip. After a day in the freezer, these are fantastic!!
Do you have any yummy ice cream tips?! Share the love!
