Is it hot where you are right now? Do you have hungry children who need an afternoon snack? Do you love Nutella? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then today’s post is just for you!
Summer, hungry children and Nutella go together in the best possible way. After spending an afternoon last week swimming and playing, I had two ravenous children with far too much time until dinner. Knowing that a snack was in order, I grabbed the Nutella jar, some cookies and ice cream and went to work. I know what you’re thinking – “cookies, ice cream and Nutella? What are you thinking?” Well, because I’m Nana, it is my prerogative to spoil them at every possible opportunity, you know. Besides I got a bunch of kisses and hugs for this snack. It was a win-win all the way around.
This is so simple I didn’t even bother with writing up an actual recipe for it. You won’t need it!
For each ice cream sandwich you’ll need two cookies of your choice (I used sugar cookies with sprinkles – graham crackers would also be good), two tablespoons of Nutella and a scoop of ice cream.
Spread the bottoms of the cookies with Nutella.
Add a scoop of slightly softened ice cream on one of the cookies and top with the other cookie.
Hand this to a hungry child and watch them devour it!
