We successfully made it through the first week of school closures here in Wisconsin. All kidding aside, the kids did remarkably well, and I have to give tons of credits to the teachers for adapting so quickly, and making virtual learning possible in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. THANK YOU for that.
Through this all, I’m learning how challenging it is to have the kiddos home during the day while I’m trying to continue to work. Juggling blogging, homeschooling, my career and my home has been interesting, to say the least. It’s been a bit difficult to focus, I’m not going to lie.
This week, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s how excited kids get about snack time. While I’ve been trying to provide a mix of healthy and tasty options, the recipe I’m sharing today is a bit of a splurge on the sweets side, but I promise you, it’s a complete hit with the kiddos – and husbands that happen to stumble into the kitchen during “snack time.”
Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy recipe for Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches. They’re only five ingredients, and kids (and husbands) go crazy over them because they’re a combination of two of their favorite treats – donuts AND ice cream! Oh, and don’t forget those sprinkles!
HOW TO MAKE DONUT ICE CREAM SANDWICHES
To make these donut ice cream sandwiches, you’ll need:
Cut each donut in half horizontally and place a scoop of ice cream on each donut half.
Using a spatula, spread the ice cream to the edges and create a sandwich by pressing on the donut tops.
Roll the sides of the donut in sprinkles, place the donut sandwiches on a small baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for a couple hours.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the donuts and serve.
Such an easy and delicious snack for kids and adults alike!
WHAT TOPPINGS COULD YOU SUBSTITUTE FOR THE SPRINKLES?
If you’d like to use something other than sprinkles or roll the donuts in several different toppings, some options, might be cookie crumbs, colorful cereal pieces, graham crackers, M&Ms, chocolate chips, chopped nuts or grated chocolate.
CAN I MAKE THESE DONUT ICE CREAM SANDWICHES AHEAD OF TIME?
If you put the donuts into the freezer until you’re ready, your donuts will harden☹️. So, if you’d like to try and prep a bit, you could pre-scoop your ice cream instead, freeze it and transfer the scoops to the donut halves when you’re ready to enjoy!
