Homemade ice cream sandwiches

I thought for a nice after work treat, I’d try making homemade ice cream sandwiches because I know my husband would enjoy them. They’re his favourite summer treat. Plus, my daughter and I happen to love them as well 😉

Store bought ice cream sandwiches are pretty tasty, but these homemade ones are better!  They turned out really well. So well, I think I’ll be making quite a few batches this summer!

I’m sure you could use homemade ice cream too, but well, I’m not quite there yet. 😉
