Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches – You Know You Want One!

It’s summer in Texas, which means it is H-O-T.  When it comes to dessert, I often want something cold.  And what could be better than a doughnut ice cream sandwich?

Inspired by this Good Housekeeping recipe, I made a variation of the Hazelnut Mocha ‘Wich (largest photo).

The recipe calls for coffee ice cream, but since I knew some people who would be eating this dessert don’t like coffee, I opted for the Bride’s Cake flavor from a popular southern ice cream maker.  Any vanilla or vanilla-based flavor would also be great.

As I found out, not all doughnut shops make a glazed chocolate doughnut.  Call around before you go to buy them.  And make sure they know you’re asking for a chocolate doughnut with glaze on it (not a regular doughnut glazed with chocolate).  The doughnut (donut??) lingo can be confusing!  For those who live in Houston, Shipley Do-Nuts is where to go!

Assemble the Sandwiches

  1. Using a sharp knife, cut each doughnut in half.
  2. Spread a generous layer of Nutella on one cut side.
  3. Add a scoop or two of ice cream.
  4. Place top half of doughnut on top.
  5. Serve immediately!

No baking required, and this cold and indulgent dessert hits the spot!
