5 Savory Ice-Cream Sandwiches Every Dessert Lover Can’t Miss

Ice-Cream Sandwiches are a perfect summer dessert – they usually require no cooking time and cool you down when you most need it. But don’t think that these delicious sweets are all about putting ready-made ingredients together. With a bit of creativity and effort, you can also make these from scratch. If you are a true dessert lover, we’re sure you will appreciate these five savory ice cream sandwiches we picked out to make your summer days complete.

    These are pretty simple to make, and we’re sure your kids will love them too. It’s best to eat them with freshly made chewy cookies, but store bought is OK as well. To make these, take two home-made or store-bought chocolate-chip cookies and sandwich some vanilla ice cream between them. This recipe is so simple; even your kids can make these. You can also decorate them with additional chocolate chips for better-looking sandwiches.

    There is more to eating ice cream than just satisfying your senses. According to Holly McCord, a registered dietitian, and author of The Ice Cream Diet, ice cream helps in weight loss. This is because dairy products in restricted diets can promote weight loss according to one meta-analysis published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

      If you want to show off your culinary skills, then making ice cream sandwiches from scratch is bound to impress your guests. This melt-in-your-mouth dessert is what ice cream sandwiches are all bout – soft cocoa flavored dough with homemade vanilla ice cream. We’re sure this all-time classic is something everyone will appreciate.

      For this recipe, you’ll, unfortunately, need to turn on the oven, but luckily, the cookies only take a maximum of 15 minutes to bake. Make the biscuits by mixing all purpose flour, cocoa powder, and granulated white sugar, a pinch of salt, some vanilla extract and egg yolks. For the vanilla ice cream, you’ll need heavy cream, whole milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, and a bit of salt. The preparation of ice cream is a bit more complicated, but given the rich texture of homemade vanilla ice cream, it is sure worth the effort.

        You don’t need to go camping to make these delicious treats. The combination of soft marshmallow with vanilla ice cream and crisp graham crackers give these treats a bit of nostalgia for the good old days. For these messy treats, all you need is mini marshmallows, some graham crackers, roughly chopped milk chocolate, and, of course, vanilla ice cream.

        The preparation method includes slightly melting the marshmallows in an oven, mixing the wet ingredients in a bowl and spreading them over lined graham crackers. It is best to freeze them overnight and cut into individual serving sizes later on. Ice cream is a great indulgence unless your lactose intolerant according to Glozine Health News.

            This no-bake-cake is perfect for those hot summer days when you want and need something sweet but without all that extra heat from the oven. It’s also fairly easy to make – perfect as a family activity. For this sandwich cake, you’ll need one box of store-bought ice cream sandwiches, a tub of whipping cream, and some magic shell chocolate.

            Start by stacking the sandwiches in four layers with the sandwiches stacked in opposite directions. Use the magic shell chocolate between each layer to help the sandwiches hold together. Spread the whipping cream over the cake and lastly, drizzle the remaining magic shell chocolate over the finished icing. You can also add Oreo crumbles as an additional cake topping. You should place the cake in the freezer 20 minutes before serving.

            Summer time and ice cream sandwiches go hand in hand. But when you make these delicious desserts by yourself, you can say that your summer is complete. Try these 5 easy homemade ice cream sandwiches this summer, but watch your daily calorie intake. One serving of vanilla ice cream is 137 calories most of which comes from carbohydrates. On the plus side, ice cream will give you and your kids plenty of calcium for good bone health.

            10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

            10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

            Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

            Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

            1. Make the Windows Your Own

            When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

            One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

            2. Put up Some Art

            If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

            Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

            3. Improve the Aroma

            A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

            Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

            4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

            A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

            There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

            5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

            If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

            Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

            6. Improve Your Air Quality

            One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

            The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

            7. Fill it with Plants

            Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

            They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

            8. Change the Doorknobs

            Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

            Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

            9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

            There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

            Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

            10. Fresh Cut Flowers

            You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

            You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
