Chocolate wafer cookies
Frozen yogurt or ice milk in vanilla
or your favorite flavor
Ice cream scoop or big spoon
Mini chocolate chips or colorful
Plastic knife or other clean straight-edge
Here's a way to celebrate the Inuit
culture in the wintertime - or cool down with a cool treat in the hottest part
of the summer!
There are at least three ways to get
the chocolate wafers that you need for the outside of your "sandwich":
a Dairy Queen and ask to buy the plain chocolate wafers that they sell for
their ice cream sandwiches. They'll only charge you a few cents for each wafer.
Or . . .
a brand of chocolate wafer cookies you can buy in some grocery stores, called
"Famous Brand." They aren't always available, but check in the cookie aisle and
ask a clerk if you don't see them.
Or . . .
"mini pies" by scraping the white frosting off Oreos with a plastic knife
(don't lick 'em - have SOME manners!).
Let the frozen yogurt or ice cream soften a little bit. Blob
about a scoop's worth on a chocolate wafer, place a second one on top, and
press the wafers together like a sandwich. Don't squeeze too hard, but have
enough fro-yo or ice cream on there so that, when squeezed together, your
"sandwich" will be an inch or two high.
Use the plastic knife or other clean
straight-edge to scrape the extra fro-yo or ice cream back into the container.
Sprinkle mini chocolate chips OR
colorful candy sprinkles onto a paper plate. Now carefully roll your Eskimo pie
over them to pick them up along the edge of your fro-yo or ice cream.
Wrap in plastic wrap, and place in
the freezer for a half-hour or more. This will make your sandwich solid enough
to eat without making too big of a mess.
While you're waiting - which is
hard, since this is such a great treat! - run and play outside to burn up the
extra calories. You'll be glad you did!
