School has started back for most, and while that should signal fall is around the corner, the weather is telling us something completely different. It's hot outside, smoldering actually, and a cool treat should be mandatory for kids and adults alike since the heat has decided it wants to stick around! I am not even sure I can consider this a recipe actually...it's maybe the easiest thing I've ever posted on here, but I couldn't not share with you. It requires little to no effort, and you are going to love these two-ingredient "ice cream" sandwiches!
Let's talk about sweet corn ice cream and how it might sound strange at first but really it will change your life. So before you tune me out and click away from me, just give it a shot, I promise you are going to love it! The first bite is unexpected in the best way possible and then from there you are hooked. I might have even eaten an ice cream cone at 10am after I made it, but I mean with corn and bacon it can be considered a well balanced meal...right?
If you haven't trusted me yet, today is the day that you start. After all sweet corn is in season and is naturally sweet...so it really only makes sense. And have you had candied bacon before or maybe you have heard it called pig candy? Because whoa, it's like the most amazing sweet and salty combo that there ever could be. So just imagine it with ice cream!
Having a barbeque? Make this ice cream. I couldn't imagine a more perfect end to a summer cookout than eating one of my sweet corn ice cream cones topped with delicious candied bacon.
Have you ever had a cookie with bacon in it? It's been happening for a while now in the cookie world, and this ice cream flavor combination is like that...but maybe better.
And really we all just need an excuse to make more ice cream...so when you buy too much corn on "accident" at the market it's ok because then you HAVE to make this ice cream and no one can judge...not that I would anyway, let's be honest.
What is better than a glass of Egg Nog during the holidays?
Egg Nog ice cream that's what, sandwiched between two chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies. Whoa...prepare to have your mind blown!
It is basically holiday wrapped up into one lip smackin' good ice cream sandwich.
I am a big fan of ice cream being an appropriate dessert all throughout the year. I am the girl who has a scarf and gloves on eating ice cream outside that people look at like she's crazy. This is because ice cream happens to be one of my favorite foods. There is no way I could ever give it up. My father-in-law happens to be the only other person I know who loves it as much as I do. We have formed quite the ice cream bond over the years.
My husband on the other hand prefers cookies. All kinds of cookies (except sugar cookies), which is why ice cream sandwiches make both of us really happy. It's the best of both worlds!
Since egg nog is pretty much an ice cream base in a drink it was the easiest ice cream I have ever made. And the ginger molasses cookies are super easy as well and are the perfect spicy balance to the decadent ice cream. Just build the sandwiches and freeze them individually and they are ready when you are.
