One of my favorite frozen treats growing up was ice cream sandwiches. I really loved the ones our local ice cream shop sold, they rolled the edges in chocolate chips! I’ve lost my taste for most ice cream flavors except bubblegum and peppermint but because those are rare to find, so I typically opt for a good sherbet or sorbet. I’ve never seen ice cream sandwiches made with sherbet, so I decided to make my own summer-inspired sherbet sandwiches.
Sherbet is fruit flavored so rolling my sherbet sandwiches in chocolate chips didn’t make sense. Instead, I opted for fruit flavored Skittles candies. Skittles is ready to make this most American summer dessert that much sweeter.
Sherbet Sandwich Ingredients
- Waffle cone style cookies (or another plain cookie)
- Favorite flavor of sherbet
- Skittles America Mix
Start by separating the Skittles by color then blending them into a fruity dust. I blended about a cup of each color using my magic bullet blender and ended up with more than enough sweet Skittles dust for this recipe. I’d recommend just a handful of each color. It’s very important that you blend the skittles for this recipe, freezing whole Skittles could be a teeth shattering experience.
Let the sherbet soften a bit and then add a generous scoop to a cookie and sandwich another cookie on top. Roll or sprinkle the Skittles dust on the edge of the sherbet sandwich. Serve or freeze immediately. You can have a lot of fun mix and matching sherbet and Skittles flavors.
Expert Tip: Don’t let the sherbet soften too much, otherwise, the sherbet sandwiches will be a sloppy mess because the sherbet won’t refreeze fast enough. Don’t ask me how I know. 😉
