July may have had National Ice Cream Day, but August has National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. And I'm a fan.
My kids love baking fresh cookies and then sandwiching a big scoop of ice cream between two of them--while they're still warm, ooey-gooey, and hot from the oven. Needless to say, it isn't a sandwich for long... it's more of a pile of mush. Equally delish tough.
Still, there's something so perfect about an ice cream sandwich. It's like two ideal desserts in one! A win-win for anyone with a sweet tooth--myself included.
Of course, an ice cream sandwich doesn't have to be simple... and it doesn't have to be traditional chocolate-chip or Oreo-style cookies. You can use cake, brownies, donuts, muffin tops, and more.
To celebrate the sweetest August occasion (today!), we've rounded up ten totally incredible over-the-top recipes.
