It goes without saying that Cinco de Mayo is my jam. I’ve been talking about it all week and have got you making nibbles for the fiesta like nobody’s business. Clearly you are going to be well covered in the margarita department as well. So the only thing left is dessert. In that case, let’s make ice cream sandwiches!
Here’s the thing with ice cream sandwiches though, hard cookie + ice cream does not work for me. You take a bite and all the ice cream splooshes out the other side, also I tend to feel that a sweet cookie and sweet ice cream is a bit much.
That’s where the genius of Flatout Folded Flatbread comes in! They are the perfect texture for an ice cream sandwich, especially when sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar and toasted in the waffle iron, you know, churros-style. They are a little bit crunchy, a little bit soft and just the right amount of not-too-sweet sweetness.
Of course you could use them for more savory applications as well. Basically take just about any leftovers, stuff them in the middle and you have a stellar, healthy lunch. With less calories, carbs, and more flavor they make any meal or snack more delicious and better for you. They even make ice cream sandwiches healthy….sort of (wink, wink).
Now let’s get sandwiching!
Melted butter + cinnamon + sugar = Churros.
The waffle iron is our friend to melt the sugar and make these guys crispy in all the right places.
Fold in half while they are still hot then let cool, they’ll make the perfect ice cream carrier that way.
This might sound crazy but the easiest way to get the ice cream in the sandwich is to cut it into 4 equal pieces while it’s still in the carton. Use a serrated knife and watch those fingers.
After they’re good and cold, dip in chocolate and try not to eat all four at once!
