These Funfetti Ice Cream Sandwiches are so much FUN! Soft and chewy Funfetti Cookies sandwiching a scoop of vanilla ice cream then dipped into sprinkles. Perfect for celebrations or any time you want to feel like a kid again!
The Funfetti Cookies for these Funfetti Ice Cream Sandwiches are the sugar cookies of your dreams. So soft and chewy. The key to success for these cookies is to take them out of the oven when they're just set and the tops are no longer shiny. They will be soft, but will firm up after cooling. This is especially important when making ice cream sandwiches. You want to keep the cookie nice and soft so when it freezes it's not too hard.
Put the Funfetti Cookies in the freezer to chill for a while so the ice cream doesn't melt right away when you sandwich them together. It also firms up the cookie so it doesn't bend when you press it against the ice cream.
You can use an ice cream scoop to put a scoop of ice cream between the cookies and gently press them together. Or if those imperfections bother you and you want it to look super perfect, soften the ice cream and spread it into a flat layer about ¾ of an inch thick in a baking pan or dish and freeze. When it is frozen solid, use a cookie cutter to cut out circles of ice cream then sandwich them between two cookies.
To add the sprinkles, either dip the sides of the ice cream sandwich into a bowl filled with the sprinkles, or hold the ice cream sandwich and sprinkle the sprinkles over the sides. Dipping the ice cream sandwich packs more sprinkles onto the sides. Sprinkling it on gives more control as to how many sprinkles you want on the sides. It depends on the look you are going for. After sandwiching the cookies and adding the sprinkles, put the Funfetti Ice Cream Sandwiches back into the freezer to firm up. Wrap them individually in plastic wrap if not eating right away.
