Nothing says “summer” quite like an ice cream sandwich. These iconic treats are readily available in the grocery store, and they’re on sale week after week. The only problem is that the ingredient lists are lengthy and full of chemicals.
If you’re a fan of ice cream sandwiches and real food, you are in luck! Homemade ice cream sandwiches are easy to make, they taste far superior to the store-bought version, and they’re less expensive. What more could you ask for?
Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches Price Breakdown
Besides the delicious taste, the best thing about these gourmet-quality ice cream sandwiches is the price. The cost of the ice cream is $3.02 and the cost of the sandwich base is $2.74, for a total of $5.76. The recipe makes 12 ice cream sandwiches, for a total cost of $.48 per sandwich. I couldn’t find any real food ice cream sandwiches to compare this to, but Julie’s Organic ice cream sandwiches, which are healthier than most, retail for $.83 per sandwich. And Julie’s sandwiches contain palm oil, caramel color, and soy lecithin. Do yourself a favor and try this recipe – you won’t be disappointed!
