This Churro Ice Cream Sandwich Has Caramel Peach Ice Cream

Churro Ice Cream Sandwich

It’s tough to keep up with all the trendiest desserts, because people are cranking out new drool-worthy concoctions every day. But trust us, we ain’t complaining. However, there is a level of dessert genius that’s pretty rare to achieve (see: Cronuts or Oreo-stuffed cheesecake brownies), and the Churro Ice Cream Sandwich fits the bill.

This treat is the dessert child of LA’s The Churro Borough, featuring caramel peach ice cream (we know: WUT) in between two fresh, cinnamon-and-sugar-laden churros. It’s the stuff of dreams, really.

So if you’re in the LA area, checking out The Churro Borough is a must. As for the rest of us, we’ll just continue drooling.

Gratuitous Food Porn: National Ice Cream Sandwich Day

icecreamleader

Quick question: how do you think Pinterest-ers *do* ice cream sandwiches? Are they all just super fast ninjas who can cook and set up their lights and props and cameras and everything all before the ice cream melts (which sounds exhausting, by the way, kudos to you guys)? Or maybe they use the old mashed-potatoes disguised as ice cream method? But then who actually gets to try the recipes, I ask you? And where do I go to volunteer?

In honor of National Ice Cream Sandwich Day (because face it, if f@#king cabbage gets one, ice cream sandwiches deserve at least three), check out our round-up of some of the cutest little frozen treats this side of the computer screen. Who knows if they taste good — at least they’re pretty as balls.

Here, Have Some Pics of Smartphones Replaced with Sandwiches

sandwichlead

People need to be more excited about sandwiches. Like the old Jake Gyllenhaal snack and sandwich memes, they need to grin from ear to ear and hold their sammies up as if they were the iPhones 20, 30 and 40 all wrapped up into one.

Well, leave it to Reddit to make it happen. A new meme showcasing stock actors smiling blissfully at sandwiches has made its way around the internet these past couple of days. Everyone from concert-goers to ethnically-balanced friend groups to tech-savvy grandparents – no one is safe from the mesmerizing, uplifting powers of a well-made BLT.

So the next time you decide to take a #selfie of your #OOTD, stop for sec and think about how you must look to other people. Primed, perky, smiling stupidly at a nigh-invisible little black box. Yep, to most people walking by, you probably look pretty damn ridiculous right now. But if you replaced that b*tch with a sandwich?

Nah, you still look pretty stupid.

Leggo My Eggo Ice Cream Sandwich!

ICE CREAM SANDWICH

There are certain things you can get away with when you become an adult — like drinking out of the milk carton, staying up ridiculously late to watch TV, and buying absolutely frivolous things without having to ask your parents first (although paying for everything ourselves can get pretty tiring sometimes all the time).

Another one of those awesome perks include eating whatever you want, whenever you want — including ice cream for breakfast. Hell, if you wanted to, you could even mix it up with regular breakfast food. Wouldn’t that be crazy?

BUT MAYBE NOT. Introducing, Eggo Ice Cream Sandwiches from She Simmers — literally two pieces of Eggo waffles with chilly ice cream in the middle. Imagine your morning waffle (all crispy and hot from the toaster) with mint chocolate chip ice cream (or vanilla, or rocky road, or whatever you so desire) sandwiched right in between.

Divine.

Here’s How to Make Sriracha Ice Cream Sandwiches

There’s spicy ice cream, and then there’s Sriracha ice cream. And this ain’t no wussy version either. No, brought to us by Dallas-based food bloggers The Glut Life, these chocolate, peanut butter and Sriracha cookies are Texas-sized and Texas-hot (holding at least a good quarter cup of cock sauce in the batter).

I literally have no words. Is there such a thing as a brrrn-gasm? Here’s the recipe, in The Glut Life voice:

Sriracha Ice Cream Sandwiches

Makes “two Glut sized cookies and about 3 regular ones.”

Ice cream sandwiches are boring. Well, are really…yeah kinda lame. I mean we grew up in the city so we are only used to one kind. Black top & bottom with white insides. We wanted to step it up a notch. We made chocolate peanut butter Sriracha cookies and filled them with Thai basil vanilla bean ice cream. Hi haters!

Ok lets start with the cookie, because they are the only thing complicated about this thing, annnnnnd no one wants a sad cookie

COOKIES:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated white sugar
  • 2 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate Chunks
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (crunchy)
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

After you mix in the dry stuff you need to holler at the real deal… SRIRACHA!!1!1!!! And lots of it. I think we put a good quarter of a cup or more in the batter. but we like flava’ (aka white people, you should only put an 1/8 of a cup)

Time to get baked. Coconut shreds take this sandwich to all new “high’ts”.  Take coconut shreds and spread them on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minute on 385 degrees until golden brown. You want to get this out of the way so it cools down enough so it can be rolled in the ice cream.

Onto the ice cream, Thai Basil x Vanilla bean. Trust us, we be food match makers, son. Thai basil pairs perfectly with vanilla bean. You know just like Red Light districts and ping pong balls.

THAI BASIL ICE CREAM:

  • 1 bunch of Thai Basil
  • 1 Carton of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

First step in making this magical combination is to get the ice cream softened by folding it, Marble Slab style. While the cream is doing it’s thangthang you need to start choppin’ up the basil super super fine.  Once the ice cream is softened, throw in the basil and whip it up all nice. Then toss that badboy back in the freezer to set.

Making the the cookies was a pain in the ass. Rolling them into balls, making them into patties, using a knife to make grids on them, and like baking them n shet…? #AintNoNobodyGotTimeForThat

BAKING:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Bake the cookies for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned around the edges. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Can be stored at room temperature, in an airtight container, for about a week. Freeze for longer storage.

So it’s time put these bad boys together. Let the cookies cool, and get the ice cream softened again. Scoop the cream on the cookies like you know what your doing. Cap it off with another cookie and roll that sucker in the toasted coconut. Yummy!

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwich

A homemade snickerdoodle recipe highlights this delectable ice cream sandwich. The ice cream consists of Peanut Butter Jumble which uses chunks of Reese’s Peanut Butter cups with fudge swirls, and the side casing was created with Smucker’s Magic Shell. If you’re not familiar with Magic Shell chocolate sauces, these sauces turn hard and shell like the moment they make contact with cold ice cream…amazing deliciousness. (PicThx ForTheLoveofMayo)
