How to make the best dining hall ice cream sandwiches

Dessert prepared using mint chocolate chip, chocolate chip and strawberry ice cream.

This dessert is surely not for those who are trying to tread lightly in the sugar department, though in the midst of those mid-semester blues that tend to set in with exams, work and the (all too) distant thought of summer, these ice cream sandwiches are sure to cheer you up.

Basically, grab any two (or six) cookies off the line and scoop your favorite ice cream in between, pressing the cookies down to flatten the sandwich slightly.

Roll the ice cream sandwich in any topping of your choice. I went with mint chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate chips, chocolate chip cookie dough with rainbow sprinkles and strawberry with coconut shavings.

Don’t hesitate to get wild and try out some crazy combinations — I would suggest anything chocolate with Reese’s pieces. Not to get too crazy, but you could also warm up the cookies in the microwave for 10 seconds for the warm cookie/cold ice cream effect.
