Red, White and Blue Ice Cream Sandwiches

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July holiday. I stayed home and didn't do much of anything except cook. Which is fine by me; just the way I like it.

One of the things I made this weekend were these adorable ice cream sandwiches. I found the inspiration and original recipe  {HERE}

For the Cookie:
1 box Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
½ cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
For the Ice Cream:
1 1.5-qt. container vanilla ice cream
1 ½ cups fresh blueberries
1 ½ cups chopped strawberries
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 12×18-inch baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
Combine the cake mix, butter, vanilla and eggs until completely combined. (Batter will be thick.) Spread out on the prepared baking sheet. You may need to use greased hands to spread evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes or until set but still soft. Let cool completely.
Meanwhile, prepare the ice cream:
Prepare a 9×12 inch baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or waxed paper.
Put the ice cream in a large bowl and let soften slightly. Mix in the blueberries and strawberries. Spread the ice cream on the prepared baking sheet. Return to the freezer to let re-harden.
Once the cookie is cooled, cut it into 24 3×3-inch squares. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and cut into 12 3×3-inch squares.
Prepare the sandwiches by layering a square of ice cream in between 2 cookies. Serve immediately.
