Chocolate Dipped Strawberry {Greek Yogurt} Ice Cream Sandwiches

Chocolate Dipped Strawberry {Greek Yogurt} Ice Cream Sandiwches
Happy National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!

August second is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. Who knew? Well me, obviously. But only as of two days ago.


Earlier this week I posted this incredibly rich and sinfully decadent Double Decker Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake. Only after posting did I come to find out that it happened to be National Cheesecake Day. Crazy right??

So I thought I’d take a look at what other amazing food holidays were coming up.

Thank goodness I did. Otherwise I might have missed National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. And that, would be tragic.


I looooooooove ice cream sandwiches. I always have. I love ice cream. So it’s not a huge surprise. But a double cookie sandwiched chunk of ice cream?

That’s just genius people. Genius.


There is this incredible ice cream sandwich shop right on UCLA campus in California that I just can’t get out of my system.
A whole shop. Devoted to ice cream sandwiches.
What the???

It’s brilliant really. You pick out your cookies, pick out your ice cream, and they sandwich it all together right in front of you. Amazing!! I wish I lived closer to UCLA so I could adequately satisfy my ice cream sandwich cravings which plague me weekly. Yes, weekly.  When I was a college freshman at Brigham Young University, I actually remember heading out at one o’clock in the morning in my slippers to find me an ice cream sandwich. Hence that freshmen fifteen. So worth it.


My ice cream sandwich fondness has only increased since I’ve started making my own.

Remember these Dreamcicle Ice Cream Sandwiches? Ah-freaking-mazing. And those Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough-nut Ice Cream Sandwiches were a stroke of brilliance if I do say so myself.


Can you believe I almost didn’t dip these in chocolate? It wasn’t until I’d already started making them that I though of the chocolate-dipped strawberry thing.

Oh my.

That would have been a serious mistake. These are ten million and a half times better dipped in chocolate.

I mean, if you are really pressed for time, you could eat them naked. ( The sandwiches please. Not you. But really that is up to your discretion. )  Really though, if you want the full experience in all its glory, and you do, then you need to just do the chocolate. It will make your day. Your week. Your year possibly.

Ahhhhhh, I’m gonna go have another now.


**I recommend allowing these ice cream sandwiches to “thaw” slightly before eating, maybe 5 minutes out of the freezer… that way the chocolate softens a bit and the whole thing is ten times better 🙂

I love that you made this without an ice cream machine. I use Greek yogurt like crazy, so I love this treat. Your photos are just gorgeous, too.

    Thank you Marcie! Sometimes I like to use my ice cream maker, but other times I’m just not in the mood to pull it out!!

Would it be alright to use a different fruit? I’m allergic to strawberries (I know total bummer).

I make mine with cream cheese and raspberries but I have never thought of dipping them in chocolate!! Yum! Also I wrap them individually in press and seal

These ice cream sandwiches are so cute, Tiffany! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, too. Just saw them at Pinterest and had to swing by. I just adore your blog, girl! Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
