Nutella Ice Cream Sandwich
This Nutella Ice Cream Sandwich is the perfect treat for busy kids (and grown-ups, too!) on a hot summer afternoon. Quick to make and fun to eat.
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!
This recipe melds summer, hungry children and Nutella together in the best possible way. After spending an afternoon last week swimming and playing, I had two ravenous grands with far too much time left until dinner.
Knowing that a snack was in order, I grabbed the Nutella jar, some cookies, and some 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 you don’t really need a recipe, but I wrote one up for you anyway.
How to Make a Nutella Ice Cream Sandwich
For each ice cream sandwich, you’ll need two cookies of your choice (I used sugar cookies with sprinkles – graham crackers or chocolate chip 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!

Keep sharing and yes this is the one that is must share with friends.
i dont have kids but my younger cousins would love these!! :)
This is just too easy….and dangerous!!! Yummy! :)
Your Nutella Ice Cream Sandwiches look so good!! I just made Ice Cream Sandwiches last night with peanutbutter cookies! Yum!
Ohhh….that sounds good, too!
Wow, this looks so decadently delicious!
Fantastic idea! I kind of want to do this with some peanut butter now:-)
Peanut butter sounds fantastic. With graham crackers and chocolate ice cream. Yep.
i’m betting your the favorite grandma this side of the mason-dixon line . . .
Maybe! For today anyway. Well, while I was handing out ice cream sandwiches for sure :-)
Oh darn you, now I’m not going to be able to get these out of my head. I must make this ASAP!
The only way to get them out of your head and is to make them!
kisses and hugs and a belly full of goodness – perfect summertime fun for adults too
You know you’ve got a winner when the kids are silent while eating :-) then there are hugs and kisses after.
I could eat this every day after work!
I soooooo want about half a dozen of these RIGHT now!
I don’t have any kids at home but I want one anyway! :) I’m betting Grumpy would like this too.
And you could lighten this up a lot, Shelby. Use graham crackers and a low-fat ice cream or frozen yogurt.
I want one!!
Come on over! I’ll save one for you.
I need these in my life!
Everyone needs one of these. Honestly.
OK, true confession. I’m not one of those Nutellaholics. I can’t even imagine eating it from a spoon (peanut butter either). I think I must have tried that once and it turned me off so much I stayed clear. Then I made some mini cupcakes from a recipe of Abby Dodge’s that had Nutella in it and that made all the difference. All the difference in the world!
So I can HONESTLY say these look so perfect…for kids and adults and yes, even me!
I like it in small amounts, too, Barbara. The little bit spread on these cookies was just right!
This looks so delicious!!! Your pictures are fantastic as well! :)
Thanks so much, Kelly!
This is brilliant. And exactly what I would love this afternoon! Oh…and I would share with my kids, lol.
Oh, yes! Do share with the kids. You’ll get wet, sticky Nutella kisses from them :-)
