Three Ingredient Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches with Nutella

It's June 28th, the kids are on summer vacation and it's pouring outside here in northern California.  We haven't been indoors for the last week because of hanging out at our county fair, so finding a rainy day activity was fairly easy to come up with. 

And who could turn down mini ice cream sandwiches?  Especially the type that are easy to make yourself and require no baking on my part.

Here's what you need.....













Ice cream, we used Clover Stornetta french vanilla, Nutella and Ritz crackers.













Set your ice cream out on the counter and let it soften up.  While you're doing that, spread Nutella on one side of a Ritz cracker. 

Repeat.  Five or ten times.

Once you've done that, your ice cream should be softened.  Scrape the ice cream with a butter knife and spread on another five or ten Ritz crackers. 

Nutella meet french vanilla.  Wrap them up and freeze.
The kids love these and I love them because it gives me that sweet and salty taste that I crave!

Oh, my. I believe they might be good on chocolate chip cookies, too. Or chocolate graham crackers. Or . . .

@oklady, thank you, they are SO good!

@Country Girl, yes, any of the mentioned would be delicious, I agree!

that looks like a fun and easy dessert. I love nutella and I think the salt on the crackers would add a unique spin to this sweet treat.

I'd love to make these, but we can't have Nutella in the house - a jar only lasts 3 days!

Thanks for linking up!

We've been out of Nutella for 5 days. Yes, I counted.

That's a good snack idea for my little one and me. He loves savory and I love sweets and so we get both what we want. ;-) I never thought of that before.

Oh my.... these look amazing! Sweet. Salty. Individual little snacks. Holy cow... there's about everything I crave right there.

I'm off to buy some Nutella, because of course this pregnant woman already has ice cream :)

NUTELLA I love. I eat it every time I travel because Delta keeps it on hand! But I resist buying it for home because I'll be in real trouble...eating it more. For these though, I'm going for it. The kids will love it! Thanks Nancy. Great idea.
