Ice Cream Sandwiches with Sprinkles

We made these for the 4th of July and the kids loved them.

It’s funny how you can take something so simple, spruce it up a bit and your kids will think it’s the coolest thing in the world!

Wonder how long that will last?

Ice Cream Sandwhiches With Sprinkles

I’m sure some of you have seen these on Pinterest. I had originally planned to buy the original size ice cream sandwiches, but then I found these ‘100 calorie’ ice cream sandwiches at Albertsons. I got 18 of them for under $4. They were perfect. Especially considering we had so many other desserts.

There really isn’t a lot of directions for this one. Pour some sprinkles on a plate and cover the sides with the sprinkles. I made them all and kept them in the freezer until it was time to eat them.

I think these would be a fun dessert for a birthday party.

Use colored sprinkles to match your theme.

The kids would love them!

Original Recipe From Kraft


What You Need:

3.5 cups flour

1 tsp. Baking Powder

1.5 cups salted butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 pkg. (3 oz. each) JELL-O Cherry (or strawberry etc.) Flavor Gelatin, divided


1tsp. vanilla

Make It:

HEAT oven to 400°F.

MIX flour and baking powder. Beat butter in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add sugar and 1 pkg. gelatin; beat until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture.

SHAPE dough into 1-inch balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass. Sprinkle with remaining dry gelatin mix.


KNEAD the dough and roll it out to cut out shapes. You may need a little bit more flour if you choose to do it this way. 

BAKE 8 to 10 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

For best results, use the same flavor of JELL-O Gelatin for both the cookie dough and sprinkling on top.
