These mini patriotic ice cream sandwiches are so easy to make and perfect for any holiday celebration! Learn how to make your own magic shell topping too!
Let’s hear it for the red, white and blue today with these quick and easy treats. They are perfect for keeping cool and making your holiday celebration so special. From start to finish they can be made and enjoyed in about 10 minutes. Make a batch and watch them disappear!
The reason they are so quick is that you start with pre-made ice cream sandwiches. I’m sure I could make my own but hey, let’s not create all that fuss – keep it simple people. Just pick out your favorite brand and you are good to go.
Now I did make my own magic shell mixture for dipping the sandwiches but trust me that part is super easy too. Only three ingredients and you will have the best dipping mixture ever. And it really works like the stuff your cones get dipped in at Dairy Queen. Yum! When I was a kid, I loved getting my cone dipped. I would watch them do it and always wondered why the ice cream didn’t fall off into the chocolate. I guess that is why it is called magic? (I just made that up!)
The magic part is when the mixture comes in contact with the cold ice cream – it freezes up to make that crunchy topping. After I made this batch, I had a thought to double dip. Double-dipping is ok in this case.
We all know too that it is nice to share, right? Sure I could have kept these all to myself and the DIY Guy but my neighbor had been watching her nephew this week so I ran a couple over there. I guess he liked them as I got a text from my friend that said “I wish she gave us a dozen!” Next time buddy!
