Granola bars are the best thing to happen to ice cream sandwiches since the ice cream sandwich was invented (which, by the way, was by a street peddler in New York City in 1899).
To be more specific, Nature Valley™ Granola Thins Crispy Squares—with a bonus layer of chocolate—are the best thing to ever happen to ice cream sandwiches. The bars are thin and crunchy enough to bite through easily, but sturdy enough to hold the ice cream in place. It’s the perfect crunchy-sweet combo.
Plus, it’s better for you than using cookies. And granola bars give you energy, right? I wish I had thought of this combo years ago!
To prepare, unwrap your granola bars and scoop 1/4 cup of any flavor ice cream on the chocolate side of the granola bar. Top with another granola bar (chocolate side down) and press gently. If desired, dip the sides in rainbow chips, mini chocolate chips, chopped nuts or sprinkles.
Line a container with wax or parchment paper and place the ice cream sandwiches inside. Cover and freeze at least 30 minutes or up to a week.
