Halloween Ice Cream Sandwich

Forget the Milk~~~add the Ice Cream~~~
Make some Halloween Ice Cream Sandwiches!

Using the recipe from a previous post Halloween Cookies just Bake your cookie dough in your Whoopie pan and place your favorite flavor Ice Cream between two of them!  Still have any Candy Corn Ice Cream? Now that would be good....I made mine with vanilla, thinking that probably the taste would blend best with the Chocolate/Peanut Butter Flavors.
Simple enough right?

Which do you prefer?  The Cookies with the Milk or the Ice Cream Sandwich?

Candy Corn Ice Cream

I am so excited to share this fun, easy, festive ice cream! All together now....I SCREAM for Ice Cream!

I started to put my ice cream freezer away and then remembered a recipe a couple of years ago that I made and suddenly I got the urge!  I changed the recipe when I made it and OMG!  I must say it came out delicious and it is the creamiest ice cream I have ever made. 

Creamy Candy Corn Ice Cream


1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cup whole milk
3 cups candy corn candies
1 Junket table (for immediate firmness when churned)


Candy Corn Ice Cream cooking
Cook 1 cup of cream with candy corn
Remove from heat when candy is melted
Let cool completely
Stir in rest of ingredients
Place in refrigerator to get cold (I left mine in overnight)
Remove any excess candy that did not melt
