And there is a lot of flexibility when it comes to ice cream sandwiches …

While the chocolate wafer is what we might traditionally think of when it comes to the ice cream novelty, there is no right or wrong choice.

Cookies, brownies and dessert bars have all become acceptable (and yummy) choices through the years.

On this particular occasion, we decided to go with a tried-and-true favorite, the chipwich.

Who can resist vanilla ice cream flanked by two, WARM, chocolate chip cookies? 

That said, if you are truly adventurous and want to create those classic chocolate wafers from scratch, you’ll need a specialized baking pan.

You can go with either a traditional rectangular shape or a more modern round wafer, which can be baked using a non-stick muffin top pan.

As we were planning for this day, we were struck by how perfectly shaped the ice cream was in many of the photos we saw.

How can we recreate this same look? It seemed like a challenge.

Come to find out … it’s easy! Like most tasks, you just have to begin with the end in mind.

We discovered the key to making our chipwich sliders was to use pre-packaged ice cream cups for the filling.

One cup, sliced in half lengthwise, created a perfectly shaped iced cream disc.

It was so simply to do and such a time saver! Plus it allowed us to perfectly portion each of our chipwich desserts.

You can typically find ice cream cups at your local grocery store.

To add a bit of crunch to our sliders, we decided to embellish them on the sides with some ice cream toppings. Bits of Heath, mini M&Ms, graham cracker crumbs, mini chocolate chips and colorful sprinkles were the perfect addition.

Plus it allowed for a bit of interactive fun to make each ice cream slider truly unique. We displayed the toppings in simple plastic jars with small spoons. Setting the toppings on a slate tray allowed each person to roll the sides of the chipwich in their chosen topping. It also made the clean up super easy. Since he jars were lidded, storing extras for use in the future was a total breeze!
