Finally, another recipe!
If you’ve been reading for a while, you know that I have been pretty busy with my latest project (my first online fitness program) and haven’t had a lot of time to post recipes regularly. We officially launch on Monday, July 17th, so that has taken up a lot of my free time these days, but I really do miss creating and photographing new recipes!
I’m trying to squeeze in some posts semi-regularly while I’ve been working on that program, but lately it has been sporadic at best. No worries: once my program launches and I’m back from my trip to BlogFest (next week!), I’ll be posting more regularly again. I’ll also be posting some BlogFest recaps as well before the end of July, yay!
But the recipe dry spell has ended today with these amazing Caramel Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches! Over the next couple weeks, I’m partnering with the Go Dairy Free blog and So Delicious Dairy Free for their #FrozenFridays recipe contest!
These little ice cream sandwiches not only have cookie dough in the ice cream, but the cookie base is also made of unbaked chocolate cookie dough. Double the cookie dough! Since there’s no eggs in this cookie dough, it’s totally safe to eat raw (and completely delicious, too).
This recipe is actually easier to make than it looks: since the cookie top and bottom are unbaked, it saves a ton of time. Plus the caramel sauce is a cinch to make, too, so this recipe comes together pretty easily, most of the time is spent on letting everything freeze.
I used plastic wrap for the cookie dough layers, but if you use parchment paper instead, you won’t end up with those funky looking wrinkles in the cookie dough. I didn’t realize they were all wrinkly until later, but that’s okay, it gives the dessert character 😉
No one would guess that these Caramel Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches are gluten free, peanut free, dairy free, and vegan! My kids loved these, and were so excited that there was a decadent ice cream treat that they could eat. We had some friends try these ice cream sandwiches as well, and they didn’t even know they were allergy friendly. Win!
