If Funfetti Ice Cream Sandwiches don't sound like the perfect birthday-inspired summer treat to you, we may need to reevaluate our friendship.
Seriously though, these Funfetti ice cream sandwiches are too darn cute to pass up. To be fair, anything with sprinkles tends to make me happy, so my opinion may be a tad bias in this case. Regardless, there's no denying that they make for a fun dessert.
Obviously, the kids loved them. I mean, confetti sprinkles + cookies + unicorn coloured ice cream = love to my children. There was no way these Funfetti ice cream sandwiches would be a fail. I chose to use Moon Myst ice cream in this recipe for the pretty pastel colours, however any flavour work work. You could also roll the perimeter of the sandwiches in sprinkles once they're assembled. I chose not to only because I wanted to see the yellow, purple and blue colours of the ice cream.
Pro Tip: do not over bake the cookies. If anything, slightly under bake them. You want the cookies to remain soft once frozen, and this is easier to achieve when the cookies aren't crispy. The centre should still be very soft when you remove them from the oven.
