Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches
Sooo, my stockpile of Girl Scout Cookies have arrived and they’re already almost gone!!! How does that even happen?! I caaan’t keep my face out of them! Do you have the same problem? I made some fun and slurpy Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches the other day and thought I’d share the grand idea here on the blog. This only adds to the GS Cookies addiction…but ya know. YOLO!
These were so good and I couldn’t stop eating them. They’re pretty daggone addicting. Are you ready for this super difficult Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches recipe? Get ready, and take lots of notes. Juuuuuuust kidding. It’s really easier than peasy!
What You’ll Need:
- Thin Mints Cookies (or any of these mint cookies will work)
- Mint Ice Cream
- Cookie or Ice Cream Scoop
- Use a scoop to plop one dollop of ice cream on top of one cookie. Smush ice cream down with another cookie.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2.
See how simple that is? Plop, smush, eat, repeat! Plop, smush, eat, repeat!
Okay, now in all honesty…there are a few things I want to mention. Just to save you some time.
Before you begin to assemble these Thin Mint ice cream sandwiches, let the ice cream thaw JUST a little bit. Not too much. You want it thawed just enough that you can easily scoop it out. You still want the ice cream a bit firm, but easy to scoop.
When you smush the second cookie ontop of the ice cream, just smush it till the ice cream starts to barely seep out the side and then stop! You don’t want to squeeze it so much that the ice cream starts coming out all the way. If it IS doing that too easily, you may need to stick your ice cream back in the freezer for a bit to stiffen back up.
After assembling them, place back in the freezer on a wax paper lined baking sheet, tray, or plate until it’s time to serve them. They’re actually too hard to eat if the ice cream is soft so you want them nice and frozen!
