FAQs

How to store ice cream sandwiches?

Wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Then place in a freezer bag or airtight container and freeze.
It makes it much easier to grab one to eat when they are wrapped separately.

How long will an ice cream sandwich last?

If stored properly, they can be frozen for up to 2 to 3 months. 

Expert Tips

  • Freezer. It is important to allow the cookies ample time in the freezer before assembling each chipwich.

    This step prevents the cookies from crumbling and helps them to hold their shape. This step is crucial in this recipe as warm cookies will not work to make these.
  • Ice Cream. Make sure to use good quality ice cream. Since the ice cream is the star of the show, you need to use a good quality. It will make a big difference in the final product.
  • Wrap in parchment paper. I like to also wrap each ice cream sandwich in parchment paper. It helps them stay really fresh.
