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.

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.

      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.

            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.

            8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

            We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

            On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

            Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

            1. Smart Door Locks

            A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

            3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

            If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.
