Remember when I told you about my 3 Ingredient Cake Mix Cookies? Well, here's how I make them a super simple, impressive-yet-kid-friendly dessert.
You will need:
1 box cake mix, flavor is up to you
1/3 c. canola oil
ice cream, flavor also up to you
sprinkles (optional, but highly recommended)
Mix up your cake mix cookies and let them cool completely. While they're cooling, move your ice cream from the freezer to the fridge to soften. (If you're having company over for dinner, you can have the cookies ready and the ice cream softening in the fridge while you eat dinner, then it will be nice and soft when you're ready for dessert.)
When you're ready to serve, grab a cookie scoop (I like my #40 scoop for this) and slip a scoop of ice cream between two cookies.
If you want to be extra festive, spread some sprinkles out on a plate and roll your ice cream sandwiches in them so the sprinkles coat the sides.
You can even make them ahead of time. They keep pretty well for a couple of days if individually wrapped in foil and stored in a freezer bag. (In the freezer, of course.)
Some Fun combinations to consider:
-Red Velvet cake mix with vanilla ice cream and red, white, and blue sprinkles for the 4th of July
-Lemon cake mix with strawberry ice cream
-Chocolate cake mix with mint chip ice cream
-Chocolate cake mix with cake batter ice cream
-Yellow cake mix with berry ice cream
-Lemon cake mix with pistachio ice cream (In fact, I might be making that happen today...)
Let your imagination go wild!
