Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches

  • 1 1/2 cups toasted unsweetened coconut
  • blue and red food coloring (or any color to match your party theme)
  • 24 gingersnap cookies, or Safeway bakery cookies of your choice
  • 6 ounces white chocolate chips (melted)
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream

Optional Toppings

  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds (added to coconut for pressing into ice cream sides)

How to Make Ice Cream Sandwiches

Divide coconut into two bowls. Toss one portion with blue food coloring and the other portion with red food coloring. Spread each portion onto a plate to dry, about 15-20 minutes.

Line cookies face side up on a rimmed baking tray. Place melted chocolate in a piping bag and cut a small hole in the tip, then drizzle chocolate onto each cookie. Refrigerate for 10 minutes to set chocolate.

Remove cookies from the refrigerator and turn half of the cookies face side down. Top with 1/4 cup of ice cream and then another cookie, to form a sandwich. Press coconut around sides of sandwich into the ice cream filling. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Freeze sandwiches for 2 hours before serving.
