Summer is basically the only time during the year when college students can feel like kids again. Along with the stress-free and fun of summer comes the heat. These are the perfect ice cream sandwiches for you to try in order to cool off on those hot summer days.
This is definitely a twist on your traditional ice cream sandwich. It is made with a donut instead of two cookies. With a scoop or two of coffee ice cream and a smear of Nutella packed inside its donut shell, your mouth won’t be able to stop watering until you’ve had a bite. Bonus the coffee ice cream can act as midday pick-me-up. Check out these other pick-me-up snacks.
This recipe is another amazing remix to the traditional ice cream sandwich. As we’ve known for years, through introduction of the slutty brownie (find the recipe here), brownie and cookie dough go together perfectly. This sandwich puts the pair together once again but this time by making the cookie dough into ice cream form. And who doesn’t love cookie dough ice cream?
Using cookie dough in recipes seems to be a very common trend and this ice cream sandwich is the epitome of that trend. With snickerdoodle cookie dough and pumpkin ice cream, the cinnamon and the sweetness of both are the best combination. This sandwich is also perfect in the case of an “Indian Summer” so it gives you the feels of fall but you can still cool off.
Imagine two Rice Krispie treats as the cookies in an ice cream sandwich, expect these Rice Krispie treats are actually made of Fruity Pebbles. This ice cream sandwich is a very sweet but definitely yummy way to start the day. I mean, it’s okay to have dessert for breakfast if it’s made of cereal, right? Here are some other healthy dessert like breakfast recipes if you love the dessert for breakfast combo, like me.
Ever felt like your cinnamon bun was missing something? Well, this ice cream sandwich is your solution.

If you are a chocolate lover then this is the ice cream sandwich for you. Chocolate fudge cookie and hazelnut gelato come together to keep your mouth watering. An ice cream sandwich with the elements of cream, fudge and chocolate can never be passed up.
This is another great recipe that replaces the cookie with a donut. If you want to make homemade donuts like a boss be my guest, or follow this simpler recipe. With an easy yet delicious glazed donut and yummy chocolate ice cream, it will become a favorite right off the bat.
Banana split ice cream has fudge and strawberry swirls, pineapple pieces, and mixed nuts that makes it both refreshing and delicious. Put this in between a classic sugar cookie (here’s the perfect recipe for those) and you just can’t go wrong. This sandwich will make you feel like you are spending the day at the carnival with all its candy/nutty goodness.
Another sandwich that is prime in case of an “Indian Summer” is this apple pie crust and apple pie ice cream sandwich. Granny Smith apples, nutmeg, and cinnamon give you all the perfect flavors of fall. It’s clearly a delicious combination that will give you your seasonal fix and help cool you down.
This is the ice cream sandwich you need if you are craving a Reese’s peanut butter cup. Chocolate ice cream and sweet creamy peanut butter cookies are almost as good as the candy snack.

If you are not a big fan of baking then this recipe is for you. Just by using classic Chips Ahoy, you can avoid any cookie disasters. This recipe lets you spice the rest of the sandwich up with strawberries, cacao nibs, bananas, and truffle fudge bar sauce. The ice cream and inner part of the sandwich truly shines.
I personally have a soft spot for oatmeal raisin cookies. They get a bad rap, but hopefully this chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe will show you they can be just as delicious as a normal chocolate chip cookie. The blueberry in the ice cream perfectly complements the raisins and adds some extra personality.
One of the best combinations of flavors in this world has to be dark chocolate and raspberry. It’s a great sandwich to eat around a late night bonfire if you get sick of all the s’mores consuming. This ice cream sandwich is one that will leave you immediately craving another one.
