Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches

Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches

Everything is better with sprinkles! Adding sprinkles to store bought ice cream sandwiches makes them even more yummy (if possible) and is an easy way to make your party a little more special. You can use confetti quins, non-pareils or jimmies -- I've tried them all, and they're all delicious.

I added about 3 ounces of sprinkles to a plate and had enough to decorate 12 ice cream sandwiches. Dip the sides of the ice cream sandwiches lightly into the sprinkles and layer the finished ice cream sandwiches between sheets of wax paper. When you're done (or after every few sandwiches if it's hot and they're starting to get soft), place the sandwiches back in the freezer until you're ready to serve them.

4th of July Star Confetti Dipped Cones

4th of July Ice Cream Cones

These cones are easy to make and a fun way to celebrate the 4th -- all you need are star confetti sprinkles, some chocolate chips, sugar cones and ice cream.

Ingredients

Red, White and Blue Star Confetti Quins

White Chocolate Chips

Sugar Cones

4th of July Ice Cream Cones - Star Sprinkles

Melt the chocolate chips and using an offset spatula or spoon, add chocolate around the top inch of the sugar cone and along the edge. Sprinkle star confetti sprinkles onto the white chocolate and set aside to harden. I place them on wax paper and leave them to harden for about 30 minutes. On a hot day, you'll probably want to place them in the fridge for 15 - 20 minutes.

Store them in an airtight container for a day or two until you're ready to use them. Add your favorite ice cream and enjoy!

Chocolate-Dipped Ice Cream Cones

Hand dipped chocolate ice cream cones

I love ice cream. I love chocolate. And frankly, almost anything is better with sprinkles. Hand-dipped ice cream cones are an easy way to dress up a classic summer treat and will be the hit of any party with kids or ice cream lovers. It takes about an hour including melting the chocolate and letting the finished cones harden in the fridge. They can be made in advance and you can involve the kiddos. If you do, you may need more sprinkles than listed below. (At least if your kids are like mine.)

Chocolate dipped ice cream cones

Ingredients

12 sugar cones (one package)
4 ounces of semi-sweet baker's chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate candy melts
Sprinkles -- jimmies, nonpariels, quins or a combination (more details below)

Directions

Before melting the chocolate, pour the sprinkles into small work bowls and lay out wax paper on a cookie sheet for cooling.

Step 1: Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler on the stove or in the microwave . If you're melting it in a double-boiler, mix the chocolate the whole time to avoid scorching. If you're melting it in the microwave, cook for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat until melted.

Step 2: Take a cone and gently dip it in the melted chocolate. I use a knife to spread more of the chocolate on the outside of the cone. (Alternately, you could use a deeper bowl and just dip the cone so it's coated equally inside and outside.) Lightly dip the end of the chocolate covered cone into the first color of sprinkles. After that, sprinkle the rest of the cone with whatever combination you'd like. Set on the waxed covered cookie sheet and once you've made all 12 cones, place in the fridge for 20 minutes to harden. They'll store in the refrigerator for about a week.

Jimmies: 2 ounces of 3 different colors of jimmies
