Very easy and tasty. Used regular (not chocolate) graham crackers even though it is less like regular ice cream sandwiches.

I froze these, and enjoyed one at a time - I love ice cream sandwiches, and this made up for the lack of them. Great recipe and quick as well. Thank you.

These are fast and easy! I served them once to a meeting for family caregivers at my clinic. They loved this idea and several told me they would make them at home. I am also planning to make these again this summer for one of of celebration days here at my clinic.
