With summer on it’s way, why not keep cool with a fun ice cream sandwich bar? A great idea for last day of school celebrations, birthday parties, and backyard BBQs!

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

A Make Your Own Ice Cream Sandwich Bar is so much fun for your family or your guests. Here are some of my best tips for setting one up for your next get together.

1. ICE CREAM

Scoop the ice cream into bowls,  and then place the bowls in the freezer until you’re ready to serve. This just makes it easier than the cardboard ice cream containers that tend to bend. The printable tags are included in the free set below, and there are also blank tags for you to label any other flavors you may choose to use.

Setting Up an Ice Cream Bar

Of course the basic flavors – chocolate and vanilla – are must haves, but why not mix it up with a little orange sherbet or cookie dough?

2. COOKIES

Having a variety of cookies on hand is essential to creating an amazing ice cream sandwich bar.

Guests can choose to have both sides the same or mix it up with two different flavors. Try my Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies (pictured left), Ice Cream Sundae Cookies (pictured right), or even Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies!

Make sure to freeze cookies until just before serving. This helps to keep them from breaking as guests make their sandwiches.

3. TOPPINGS

Sprinkles/Jimmies, mini chocolate chips, and crushed pretzels all make great toppings for rolling your ice cream sandwiches in. Be sure to provide a workspace to spread the toppings out on so the sandwiches can be rolled in them.

Ice Cream Sundae Toppings

Some other ideas for toppings include: brownies, Oreos, nuts, candy canes, marshmallow bits, or red hots.

4. LABELS & DECORATIONS

Labeling your ice cream flavors, cookies and toppings helps your guests to easily identify what each item is. This is especially helpful if there are any allergies.

Adding a colorful garland creates a little festive atmosphere.

5. CLEAN UP

Although it’s always a huge hit with kids and grown-ups alike, a make your own ice cream sandwich bar can get pretty messy. Make sure you head to your local Walmart and pick up plenty of Wet-Naps to have on hand for cleaning those sticky faces and fingers!

Hi! I'm Kristin and I'm the creative mind behind Yellow Bliss Road, where you'll find tons of recipes, free printables, and a little decor and DIY thrown in for good measure. Life can be complicated, so I am all about simplifying wherever I can - from food to decor to DIY - because I believe that it doesn't have to be elaborate or extravagant to be amazing. I am a single adoptive mom with a daughter in Preschool and a son in Kindergarten. My kids are a handful, I'm exhausted and most days my house is a mess - and I'm okay with that!
