We All Scream for Ice Cream (Sandwiches)

An ice cream sandwich is a great summer dessert, and it’s a type of dessert that is easy to make and no oven is necessary.

A no-bake dessert is a perfect treat for when summer is in full swing, and there is no better no-bake treat than a DIY ice-cream sandwich. These ice cream sandwiches make a store-bought product look dull in comparison. The dessert is a lot of fun to make and – of course – tastes extremely good.


  • 6 whole graham crackers
  • 6 scoops vanilla (or favorite flavor ice cream), softened
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate baking chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Assorted cookie decorating sprinkles


  1. Line a baking sheet with plastic wrap. Break graham crackers in half, making 12 squares. Place a scoop of softened ice cream on 6 squares and place remaining 6 squares on top, pressing down firmly. Place sandwiches in freezer until firm.
  2. Place semisweet and white chips in separate microwave-safe bowls. Add 1 tablespoon oil to each bowl then microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring well until melted and smooth.
  3. Dip each ice cream sandwich halfway into melted chocolate (3 sandwiches in semisweet chocolate and the other 3 in white chocolate). Immediately decorate with sprinkles and place on the baking sheet.
  4. Return sandwiches to freezer until chocolate hardens, then enjoy immediately or wrap individually in plastic wrap and keep frozen until ready to serve.

Extra Information: These should stay crisp for up to 2 days; after that, the graham crackers will soften but they’ll taste just as good. The overall time needed for this recipe was 20 minutes.
