Easy & Quick Desserts
For an easy dessert, slice up vanilla pound cake or angel food cake and place on a dessert plate, top with one or two scoops of ice cream, top with whipped cream. For an extra sweet treat, in place of whipped cream use marshmallow crème, especially if the ice cream is chocolate!
Using graham crackers or chocolate graham crackers break into squares at perforated lines. Soften ice cream (your flavor of choice) and spread a thick 1 to 1-1/2 inch layer of ice cream on each graham cracker. Top with the second graham cracker, wrap in aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Place into a freezer bag and freeze until just firm.
Another way to make ice cream sandwiches use store-bought chocolate covered graham crackers with the ice cream.
