Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches

My family was invited over to my friend’s home for a birthday party. I asked her what they were serving for dessert and I was told ice cream sandwiches. My response was great, I will try and make a gluten free version and bring those over for my kids.

While it was rather easy to make… the ice cream itself was melting pretty fast once I was assembling the sandwiches. And since it was melting I threw a ice pack in with the sandwiches so the remainder of the ice cream wouldn’t melt while we were driving.

All in all the ice cream sandwiches came out quite tasty… and even though they were a tad melted the kids didn’t even care.
