Canada Day Ice Cream Sandwiches

Since I started blogging almost 10 years ago (OMG), I have wanted to make ice cream sandwiches with sprinkles.  They’re just so pretty.  I have made ice cream sandwiches with smarties, but have never gotten around to making them with sprinkles.  This is the year.  And what better time than for a Canada Day party?!

Maple Leaf Sprinkles

It all started with these adorable maple leaf sprinkles that I found at Bulk Barn.  Seriously, how cute.  I went in search of regular red and white sprinkles, but when I came across these I had to have them.

These sprinkles take a regular ice cream sandwich to the next level.  And so easily too.  You can make a batch of 12 of these in about 10 minutes…it’s really that easy.

Make Ahead Recipe Tip!

The great thing about a dessert like this is that you can make it well ahead of time.  Just assemble and freeze until you’re ready to serve.  Make them a few days ahead of time, and it’s one last thing you have to do when getting ready for your celebrations.  I like to freeze them in an air tight container with parchment paper lining between the sandwiches, that way they don’t stick together.

Description

These Canada Day Ice Cream Sandwiches are a simple and fun dessert idea for your holiday celebrations!  Just 2 ingredients: ice cream sandwiches and sprinkles.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 ice cream sandwiches (allow at least 1 sandwich per person)
  • maple leaf sprinkles (found at Bulk Barn) or you could use regular red and white sprinkles.  I used less than 1 cup for 12 sandwiches
  • parchment paper for freezing

Instructions

  1. Put all the sprinkles on a plate.
  2. Tap the open edges of the ice cream sandwiches in the sprinkles, wiggling them to make sure all the ice cream is covered with sprinkles in the way you like.
  3. Place the finished sandwiches into a container in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.  I placed pieces of parchment paper between the layers so the sandwiches don’t stick together.
  4. Enjoy!
