What You’ll Need:

 

Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches

Thin MInt Ice Cream Sandwiches(The ice cream started to get soft, so I ended up sticking it back in the freezer before finishing the rest.)

Instructions:

  1. Use a scoop to plop one dollop of ice cream on top of one cookie. Smush ice cream down with another cookie.
  2. Eat.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2.

See how simple that is? Plop, smush, eat, repeat! Plop, smush, eat, repeat!

Thin Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches

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!

    I just picked up two boxes of thin mints at my son’s school yesterday. Perfect timing, I must say. Perhaps it’s a sign (for us to make and eat these). 😉 :)

    I love how pretty these are. I am not a fan of the thin mints but I bet my friends and family who like them would love this.

      The combo is amazing! I found that they’re much easier to eat after they’ve been frozen for awhile. The texture combination of the crunchy cookie and the creamy icecream is crazy good.

    Well, I’m hungry. That is a cool recipe. Thanks for the tip about putting them back in the freezer to harden up. I’d probably try to eat them too fast!

      Yeah, I tried eating them right after I made them. Melty…but yummy. Much better after being frozen for awhile. When I bit into them, the ice cream was so soft and it just squeezed right out the sides. haha!

    Mmmmmm. These looks so good! When I was pregnant I craved Mint’n’chip ice cream like it was going out of style. I would have done some serious damage to these!!

    Thanks for linking up at Wordy Wednesday!
