We’ve kicked off July, with a family vacation at beach, for a little relaxation. Our rental house is located five minutes from the beach, and we have a pretty sweet pool in the backyard too. In the past six days, we’ve had plenty of BBQ’s, beach outings, rasberry picking, carnivals, but the majority of our time has been relaxing in the backyard. It’s been pretty amazing and I seriously don’t want it to end.
One of the things the kids look forward to the most come summer time is, of course, ice cream. In some form, it has managed to make its way onto the menu the entire time we have been out here. Just this weekend, I thought it would be fun to run into town with the girls to get a sweet treat for us to enjoy in our backyard, so we stopped at Baskin-Robbins to try out their new Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. The girls completely freaked that they could build their own ice cream treat. First, they chose two cookies for the shell, and it was pretty cool that you can mix and match them. Their yummy flavors were Dark Chocolate Chunk, Double Fudge, Peanut Butter Chocolate, White Chunk Macadamia, and their newest Candy Cookie. Next, they picked one of the many flavors of ice cream from the Baskin-Robbins arsenal. And what ice cream treat would be complete without toppings, like sprinkles, or chopped almonds. We could have double scooped our sandwiches, but I thought that was a bit much for their little tummies.
All three of our sandwiches were totally unique sandwiches. Somehow, we all chose different toppings, ice cream flavors, and cookies, but we were sure to take a little taste of each others’ Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches.
They were such a hit with the girls that we decided to bring some to the BBQ we were headed to the following day. They picked combinations that they thought their friends would like, but lets face it, would any kids have an issue with a monster treat like this. We forgot the cooler, so everyone enjoyed their treats as soon as we arrived, but it was the perfect way to start the holiday BBQ!
I have a feeling these Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches will be on constant rotation all summer long, as we enjoy beach, pool, and many sunny days our way. Summer please never end!
