Promising Ice Cream….Sandwiches!

The first week of school is coming to an end.  My little one has started Kindergarten and had a rough morning.  Day 1, excited, but clung to Dad as she was getting on the bus.  Day 2, tearing up, got in line to get on the bus, then made a quick turn to run back to me.  Day 3, crying most of the morning, crying to the bus stop and needed me to hold her hand onto the bus.  Of course, she has a great day and is super smiley when she gets off of the bus!  But with all of the tears this morning, we promised her ice cream when she gets home.  Hoping to distract her from her anxiety.

But I have really, really wanted to make homemade chocolate chip cookies and tada – I had a great idea!  Ice Cream Sandwiches.

PK Ice Cream Sandwiches

Actually tried a new chocolate chip cookie recipe from Allrecipes and they were delicious!  They turned out to be the perfectly shaped, with a thin crispy outside and soft chewy middle.  I baked these an extra 2 minutes, but followed the recipe exactly.  They made 45 cookies using a 1 inch cookie scoop.

Love the versatility of the Sweet Stackers risers.  They elevate cookie racks at the perfect height to save space on the kitchen counter tops!

Once cooled, I transferred the cookies to a staging container to keep them extra fresh.  Sweet Stackers neatly organizes the cookies in tiers.

Time to fill the cookies!  Place a good round scoop of ice cream in between two chocolate chip cookies (they bottom of the cookies touching the ice cream).  I used a smaller container to store 12 ice cream sandwiches separated using a Sweet Stackers tray.

Even though I was in a cool room, the ice cream melted quickly.  I suggest placing the container in the freezer and adding one or two sandwiches at a time.  But even is some ice cream dripped, the container and trays wipe down easily.  The trays also made a nice surface to work on.

There were extra cookies for a later treat!

The kids had a great day at school and were very excited about this yummy summertime treat!

SweetStackers – Stackable Food Storage System

Did you ever make dessert bars, cookies or an appetizer that you couldn’t easily store without disturbing their appearance or having them stick together? Well, I have designed an affordable way to layer your food items in a food storage container that you probably already own!

Sweet Stackers™ – Stackable Food Storage System are trays that “stack” in two or three tiers which fit in a typical 3″ plastic food storage container. This is a great alternative to over-sized expensive cookie containers or dessert caddies.  The trays currently come in four different sizes and fit containers made by major brands like Rubbermaid, Sterilite and Tupperware.

Why fumble around carrying multiple containers to a party when you only need one container? The Stackable Food Storage System is also perfect when you are entertaining because you can save space when storing your prepared food in a pantry or refrigerator. They can even be used for everyday use…did you ever store left-over pizza in the fridge to find out that it stuck together?

Late night craving…

Late night cravingYes, I had a late night craving.

Oh…what to do….

Then I remembered that I have a secret stash of something sweet in my freezer!    Thawing is much faster than baking a whole batch of brownies or cookies and I am not really up for baking at this time of night, plus the aroma would probably wake up the kids.

My SweetStackers Stackable Food Storage System really did the trick!  They separated and stacked the remaining brownies that I made a while ago in a small 9×9 Tupperware container, perfect for the freezer.   Pull out one brownie (or all of them) when you have a craving.

Check out my original post on how I made these brownies, they are decadent!

Gingerbread Cookie Pops

Found this cute little kit by Wilton to make Gingerbread Cookie Pops.   My kids (4 and 2) had a blast spreading the icing and putting the cookies and pop sticks together.  We decorated them by piping the icing to hold all different types of sprinkles and had lots of giggles along the way!
