Yeah, I did that…

For today’s post, I took two delicious foods that I previously blogged about and “sandwiched” them together to make one incredible, super treat. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the king cake cookie ice cream sandwich!

By sheer coincidence, I made purple ube ice cream within days of making shamrock green and pot ‘o gold sables. And, since I’ve never made an actual king cake, these little frozen bites were a colorful, fun, and foodie way to celebrate Fat Tuesday (almost two weeks later)! Now, do I really need to wedge a tiny, plastic, toy baby in one of the sandwiches?

    Original idea, surely something different. I wouldnt exactly know how to eat it though.

    Very generous with the filling. I guess this would be similar to a quadruple burger, just less colorful:)

    I think my husband – lover of all cookie sandwiches – would just about faint if he saw this. Best to keep this one to myself.
