Supplies For Making Ice Cream Sandwiches
Ice Cream-You can use store-bought ice cream or homemade ice cream. The ice cream will need to be softened a bit to mold around the cookies.
Cookies– Use for your base; you can use homemade or store-bought cookies. Chips Ahoy makes for an excellent base for an ice cream sandwich. Also, using a cookie mix or cookies baked from cookie dough is fine too! (Don’t worry, Amazon has Ice Cream Cookie Wafers you can buy to make this even easier)
Freezer Paper– Wax paper or parchment paper will also work for this, I like freezer paper personally for things like this, but it comes down to personal choice.
Ice Cream Scooper-Use this to scoop out the ice cream to be shipped into the ice cream sandwiches.
Rubber Spatulas– This can be used to smooth out the edges of the ice cream around the cookies as you assemble the sandwiches.
Baking Sheet– Put the sandwiches on the trays before moving them to the freezer to freeze after assembling them.
Wrapping Material– You can use plastic wrap, Ziploc bags, or wax paper to store the ice cream sandwiches after the set.

How Long Are Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches Good for?
Store the ice cream sandwiches in the freezer for up to 2 months. The more airtight container or plastic wrap, the longer the sandwich will last. (But let’s face it, with kids around and how good these are, they won’t last long)
