It’s July! Are you melting out there??? San Diego is finally warming up (not complaining) and that means the kids are all over the beach, the pool, popsicles, ice cream and other frozen treats that will keep them cool. And a hot, sweaty, naggy kid is something we all want to avoid!

Last month, I had put together my party tips to get you party ready for the summer. One of my desserts was ice cream sandwiches.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches Detail

These cookies are strong enough to hold as much ice cream as you can cram in between them! And that’s a lot, because these sandies are about the size of the palm of your hand.

Yeah, a hearty-man’s ice cream sandwich.

This baby will keep you cool all summer long!

The cookies are crispy and chewy, made with a combination of all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour and wheat bran.

And they are super delicious!

Keep cool everyone!
