If you are looking for something fun and EASY to whip up for the 4th of July these are fantastic. They were really easy to make and turned out so cute. I think I'll send these to work with my hubby.
You will need:
1 bag pretzel sticks
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups melted white chocolate
red, white and blue sprinkles (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
Melt white chocolate in a paper cup or plastic tupper wear container in the microwave. Spread the top half of the pretzel stick with peanut butter then dip into chocolate. Lay pretzel stick on a piece of wax paper and add sprinkles to the top. Put in freezer to set.
RED, WHITE, and BLUE ICE CREAM SAMMY's!!!!!!!!!!
For the Cookie:
1 box Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
½ cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
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.
