What childhood memory does summertime conjure up most for you?
Hurtling down a Slip N' Slide on a hot day?
Chasing fireflies at twilight?
Staying up later than usual waiting for the sun to set?
For me it has to be sitting by the side of a pool in a dripping wet bathing suit on a warm day, licking around the sides of an ice cream sandwich. Granted ice cream sandwiches are not as healthy as a juicy slice of watermelon or a bowl of plump strawberries, but my love for them still knows no limit.
While it's easy enough to buy them in the store, these days I prefer making my own, especially when you consider what's in most boxed brands. And it allows me to be creative. For instance, have you ever had your ice cream sandwiched between two honey-kissed, crispy graham crackers (especially the one's from Attune Food, yum!)? If not, you may want to try this recipe on for size. When you discover in your first bite that the inside of the graham crackers are lined with the thinnest layer of chocolate it will be a taste sensation you'll have summertime memories about for years to come!
