This is the perfect recipe to cool you off in the hot summer temperatures. Better yet, it's low calorie, low fat, and satisfies sweet, crunchy, and chocolate cravings all at once. And the dark chocolate is full of good for you antioxidants. I got this recipe from Self.com.
Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches
- 1/2 cup light vanilla ice cream (or frozen yogurt), softened at room temperature
- 24 vanilla wafer cookies (1 1/2 inches in diameter)
- 1 oz dark (or bittersweet) chocolate (60 to 70 percent cocoa solids), finely chopped
- Line a shallow storage container with waxed paper. Put a small scoop of ice cream (about 2 tsp) on a cookie; top with another cookie. Roll sandwich in chocolate so chips adhere to ice cream. Place in container. Repeat with remaining ingredients until you have 12 mini ice cream sandwiches. Cover container and place in the freezer to set for at least 30 minutes, or freeze for up to 1 week.
