Get the Scoop…

… on these homemade ice cream sandwiches. I scored these cute ice cream sandwich molds on clearance at Williams-Sonoma after Christmas and finally got around to using them. They were so easy and lots of fun for kids. (That includes me, too!) And the fact that they had been $14.99 and I got them for $3.99, made them taste all the sweeter.

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

Here’s what you do:

  • Bake a brownie recipe enough for a 12 X 18 jelly roll pan*
  • Cool
  • Use the forms to cut out your shapes.
  • Place one brownie shape in the bottom of the capped form
  • Add a scoop of your favorite ice cream
  • Place the other brownie shape on top
  • Press together using the part of the form with the handle to make perfectly shaped ice cream sandwiches
  • Enjoy

Sorry, I didn’t get great pics of these, they were a little messy and we were too busy eating them. Next time, I’ll cut out all of the shapes in advance and then make sandwiches as needed.

Also, I don’t think it’s available anymore at Williams-Sonoma, but here are some other choices:
Triangle-Shape Ice Cream Sandwich Maker
Heart & Star Ice Cream Sandwich Maker
Farmyard Animals Ice Cream Sandwich Maker

* If you don’t have a 12 X 18 recipe, use a 13 X 9 recipe and double it.

I bought these last summer & they are sooooo easy & fun to make! My kids love them. Especially when you make them with brownies & mint chocolate chip ice cream. Another good one is chocolate chip cookies and strawberry ice cream! There are so many good combos!!
I adore your blog- please keep showing us your amazing creations!

Tina said...

I have seen these and thought they’d be great to try out and fun to serve and at that price, why not! Sounds like an easy process. I might have to try it with my homemmade peanut butter cup ice cream and brownies. Yum, great site!

Those are so super cute!!

Bakerella said...

Cherry Blossoms – thanks for saying so.

Jessy and her dog Winnie – I know, were so cute in the store, I couldn’t resist.

Laloo – You should use yours. After you bake your brownies, I’d construct as you want to eat them, because I made them all at one time and they got a little messy, not to mention it was a little too much to eat. Just got over excited because they were so cute.

Alia – good luck

texasdarlings – those combos sound yummy. thanks!

maichelle – thanks!

Nicole – and more fun, too!

Julia – Don’t get me started, I can’t wait until Thursday!

michelle @ thursday night smackdown – I know, I couldn’t resist the price.

BB – I found a recipe on the web. Just use any recipe for brownies as long as it is for a 12 X 18. You can even use two box mixes. Here’s the one I used, but I’m sure there are even better ones.

Tina – I’m coming over when you do. Love pb and ice cream!:)

Ryley – Thanks!!!!!!!!

Love it!

Cakespy said...

I totally should have bought these when I saw them–we had all of these Registry gift certificates to Williams-Sonoma and BAD Mr. Cakespy made me buy cutlery instead of these ice cream sandwich makers (evil man!). I mean, come on…little piggies!? Thanks for the how-to as well! :-)

March 5, 2008 11:35 PM
Bakerella said...

Diane – you can send it to bakerella AT

suzanne – that sounds like fun!

megan – I would have had to fight your for them. JJ

cakespy – I know… super cute, right! If I had certificates there, I would go crazy with indecision. Great store.

Bakerella, I love your photography of your treats. Do you take them yourself? If so, what’s the secret on making them look so professional?

April 4, 2008 06:22 PM
Bakerella said...

Wendy – thanks so much. I’m glad you caught the show.

Monica – I do take the pics myself. I have a Canon Rebel xti and i use a 50 mm fixed lens for most of the shots.

You are an inspiration! I’ve made the red velvet cake balls and they were a hit! Found some of the ice cream sandwich molds today at Marshalls. There were only 3 of them (heart, star, and some random kind of shape)for $7.99 but I thought it would be something good to do with the grandkids this summer. Thanks for all the fun!

For sure. They’ll love it.

If you make these ahead of time how long can you store them in the freezer?

these are really cute……I have the farm animals but i never had any inspiration for them. I think this is a great idea, using brownies instead of cookies! Now i just need some ice cream…….
