frozen banana ice cream sandwich

When I saw this little number that only Giada could whip up, I just knew I had to give it a whirl. Besides, nothing beats the heat quite like a Frozen Banana Ice Cream Sandwich. I won't give you a play-by-play on just how I whipped these up, because Giada did just that on the aforementioned site. But I will say that I injected some very special Dana-ness into these mini-indulgences by forgoing the premade cookie dough and by making my own chocolate chip cookies. I made the cookies Sunday night and put the sandwiches together Tuesday night. The cookies were a bit hard (I ended up eating these with a fork and knife rather than eating them like a sandwich), but still yummy.

Also, if you start making your cookies and then on your last batch pop in Amelie for your viewing pleasure, and then you forget about those baking cookies until your fiance says "Dana whats that smell?" just don't go blaming me for that. Because Amelie is a very engrossing movie, so its easy to slip into that magical little French world and forget that you've got your own little mess waiting for you in the kitchen behind you. Just sayin'.

But after this little burnt cookie fiasco, things went pretty smoothly.

Chopped up Skor bars

Equals some mad yums when spread on some melted chocolate on chocolate chip cookies (top of sandwich)

These are the bottoms of the sandwiches (note how the flat side of the cookies are up)

After letting both trays sit in the freezer for an hour or so..... cream is put on the bottom

And here they are assembled!

These are pretty yum, and surprisingly the bananas were my favorite part! They really made the dessert, but I do wish I could somehow soften up that cookie a little bit. I bet if I had assembled the sandwiches just after making the cookies it would have worked out better, but c'est la vie.

Well all, it is waaaaayyyyy past my bedtime, so I'm going to retire and not add any additional commentary. Hope y'all have a lovely evening, and be sure to stop by my sisters new blog if you get a free moment.
