Easy Easter Ice Cream Sandwiches

These easy ice cream sandwiches from Twig and Thistle are going to be the perfect excuse to spend sometime in Trader Joes this weekend (not that I need oneJ). They look delicious and I love the simple wrapping with parchment paper and string! All about the packaging!
What you’ll need:
Carton of ice cream (I might use sherbert, mint or strawberry to give you that fun Easter color)
Butter waffle cookies from Trader Joe’s
Round cookie cutter bent into an oval
Large knife
Cookie sheet
Parchment paper
Wax string

1) Take your ice cream (the boxed kind works best) and cut off a 3/4″ thick slab

2) Use your cookie cutter and cut out ovals from the ice cream

3) Set the ovals on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and put the sheet in the freezer to firm up

4) While you wait, cut out 9.5″x2.5″ strips of parchment paper to use as holders for the finished product

5) Once the ice cream has chilled for a bit, transfer to the cookies with a spatula

6) For a little extra sweetness, add decorative chocolate sprinkles; simply roll the edges through the sprinkles for an even coating

7) For the final touch, wrap in parchment paper and secure with waxed thread or baker’s twine then freeze until ready to serve.
