I am on an ice cream kick this week and what could be better than an ice cream sandwich bar?! This is an easy dessert bar for guests at a summer party. I love bars for parties. You can have mimosa bars, taco bars, bar bars, sandwich bars, candy bars and many others, the possibilities are endless. What I love about a food bar is that people get to choose how they want their food because everyone likes it a little bit different. It is also less work for the host. You put out some ingredients and you are done! The best kind of bars involve sweets in my opinion.
What you need to make an awesome ice cream sandwich bar:
at least 3 types of ice cream
at least 3 types of cookies(you can get creative with types and also add brownies or donuts)
ice cream cups
at least 3 types of toppings(sprinkles are a must you can have a few types of sprinkles, chocolate chips, M&Ms, and Oreo crumbles)
napkins(because ice cream is always messy)
Prescoop ice cream and put them in ice cream bowls to make it easy to get out with a spoon for guests. You can also keep some of it in the freezer this way and take it out when you run out. If you are somewhere warm like I am in Arizona ice cream melts in seconds. It’s best to keep it cold for as long as possible. Have the toppings in bowls lined up with spoons in all of them. Have the cookies on a plate stacked up. Extra plates and spoons for guests to assemble their ice cream sandwiches.
You can have disposable ice cream bowls for all the guests to fill with toppings and then dip the ice cream sandwiches right in them.
SImple as that everyone gets a tasty ice cream sandwich just the way they like it!
