My Version of Snack & Half Ice Cream Sandwiches

Maybe you remember this great ice cream sandwich from the 80’s and 90’s — The Snack & Half.  An ice cream sandwich with two oatmeal cookies and vanilla ice cream, coated in chocolate.

I haven’t seen them in years. We used to get them from our local gas station as a treat on Friday nights, on our way up to the cabin for the weekend.  I decided to make my own…

Not so pretty, but tasted ridiculously good.

 

How to make your own Snack & a Half…

  1. Bake oatmeal cookies (great recipe from Quaker Oats). Let them cool.
  2. Buy vanilla ice cream
  3. Put about 2 inches of ice cream between the cookies. Try to fill out to the edges of cookie.  Use a butter knife to smooth around the outside (like you would icing a cake).
  4. Set cookie on a plate with piece of parchment paper.  Put in the freezer (until your chocolate is ready).
  5. Melt a bag of milk chocolate chips on your stove top. Stir continuously on low / medium heat.
  6. When chocolate has cooled a bit (but is still smooth), spoon melted chocolate on top of sandwich and smooth with a spoon.  Let the chocolate drizzle over the sides.
  7. Put your ice cream sandwich (Snack & Half!) in the freezer for a few minutes until the chocolate hardens.
  8. Eat it!

I might have gone a little overboard with the chocolate on my hubby’s sandwich 🙂
