An Italian Classical Ice Cream Sandwich… Homemade

I used to buy this ice cream sandwich and keep some on our home’s freezer. I was really fond of this ice cream with biscuit, and so were my children when born and grown up.

That’s why when I saw its recipe I didn’t think about too much before trying it… and it worked at the first try. And we liked it at first try too ;-)

It’s a simple biscuit (to which dough I added chocolate chips) filled with a cream mixture, to which I also added chocolate chips.

I used fresh cream, and I believe it makes a difference (instead of packed ones), but it’s up to you. The original recipe that I found on Misya blog, requires cream, without specifying it has to be fresh.

It is a good recipe to be prepared in advance and have available into your freezer for a sweet tooth, for a snack, to offer something fresh to an unexpected visit during Summertime days.
