Easy Homemade Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches

Easy Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches. Three ingredients no ice cream maker.

Three Ingredients, No Ice Cream Maker, Crazy Delicious Ice Cream Sandwiches was the first name for this recipe, although that did seem a bit long for a recipe that’s so short.

If you know me at all, you’ll know that I’m not a girl that goes for the Quick & Easy recipes, but sometimes I hear of a recipe that just seems too tempting not to try. I stole this recipe for an 80 year old woman I know. She made a version of these (that involved Cool-Whip) for a bingo game she was hosting, and told me all about how easy they were, and how everyone loved them. Easy, you say? None left, you say? I must try these easy and delicious treats, although I will be skipping that blue and white plastic tub.

She was right: easy, delicious and none left. The moral of the story is always listen to your elders.

And eat ice cream.

Easy Homemade Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches. Three ingredients, no ice cream maker.

Chocolate Stout Mousse Brownies


    For the Crust:
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 6 tbs unsalted butter
  • For the Filling:
  • 8 tbs butter (1 stick)
  • 8 wt ounes bittersweet chocolate (62% cocoa content) about 1 ½ cups
  • 5 eggs separated
  • ¼ tsp cream tartar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup stout
  • 2 tbs cornstarch
  • 2 tbs flour


  1. Preheat oven 375.
  2. In a food processor add the flour, cocoa powder, salt and powdered sugar, pulse a few times to combine.
  3. Add the butter cubes and process until well combined.
  4. Spray a deep dish 8x8 inch baking dish (for 9x13, double the recipe) with cooking spray.
  5. Dump crust in the prepared dish, press firmly into an even layer.
  6. Place 8 tablespoons of butter, stout and chocolate in the top of a double boiler (or a metal bowl set over a pot of water) over medium heat. Stir frequently until melted, remove from heat.
  7. In the bowl of a stand mixer add the egg whites and cream of tartar, building up speed, beat on high until soft peaks form.
  8. Move whites to a large bowl.
  9. In the stand mixer bowl (no need to clean between jobs), add the egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch, and flour. Beat on high until light and slightly fluffy.
  10. Slowly pour the chocolate mixture into the egg yolk mixture, beating until completely combined, scraping the bottom to make sure the mixture is well incorporated.
  11. About 1/3 at a time, gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture using a spatula. Stir until egg whites are well combined with the chocolate mixture. Add filling in an even layer on top of the crust.
  12. Bake at 375 for thirty minutes or until the top has puffed and looks dry. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature before cutting.

How fast do these melt? Same as any other ice cream?


Jackie August 26, 2013 um 1:04 pm

Not really. It’s fairly stable at room temperature, unless said room is overly warm.


Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie August 26, 2013 um 1:07 pm

I recently made ice3 cream sandwiches similar to this but the inside was greek yogurt, cool whip and pureed berries.


Zack August 27, 2013 um 2:18 pm

I looked for this recipe and found a similar key lime pie one. It was greek yogurt, sugar, and key lime juice on cinnamon graham crackers!

No, but seriously, 3 ingredients? Amazing.

SO glad you skipped the Cool Whip, and now I have to try these asap – love things that don’t require an ice cream maker but I still get to feel like I made homemade ice cream 🙂


Kathleen Richardson August 27, 2013 um 5:27 am

Such simplicity in the preparation of these ice cream sandwiches. Your photo with candy cane twine around each sandwich is absolutely perfect. I’ve got to pin this one!

I can’t believe how perfect these look, Jackie! You’ve got skills, mama 😉


Maggie August 28, 2013 um 7:53 pm

Ridiculous. Whipping cream is one of my faves…in any shape and form and I think I will try the above mentioned cinnamon graham crackers because cinnamon is my ultimate fave. This is getting done…asap.


Des August 28, 2013 um 10:17 pm

I need these in my life ASAP. Good thing they are so freakin' easy to make. Or is that a bad thing.


RavieNomNoms August 29, 2013 um 5:54 am

These just look too darn good!!


Valerie August 29, 2013 um 10:00 am

Sometimes it’s the simple recipes that are the most surprising – I’m trying to keep an open mind. These ice cream sandwiches look dangerously easy. 🙂


Zack August 30, 2013 um 2:02 pm

What do you suggest for the caramel sauce?


Jackie August 30, 2013 um 2:05 pm

I make my own, so I always seem to have some. Also, Kings Cupboard makes a great caramel sauce and the Trader Joes brand is actually pretty good too.


Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. August 31, 2013 um 10:19 pm

I am in love with how easy these are!!!


Tamara Coleman September 12, 2013 um 8:50 am

I have a gypsy soul and bottomless stomach too! I move around and fly by the seat of my pants and can be quite impulsive at times and food is the center of my world! LOVE YOUR HEADLINE! 🙂 These ice cream sandwiches have me drooling and craving ice cream now!
