'Sandwich' in the Goodness

April 30, 2012

Sandwiches are not my favourite food...the squished up playground memory... no matter how hard mum worked to make us yummy, tasty sandwiches, with interesting fillings, made fresh each day, by lunch time they just were not appealing!!

However, this sandwich will convert all the sandwich cynics! Even me...
Who can go wrong when chocolate, icecream and biscuits are all together!!
These are great to take and share for dessert or as a special treat.

Kate's Mars Bar Cookies  
(not endorsed in anyway by Mars but the real things are much better than the imitations!!)
125g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg 
1 3/4 cup self-raising flour
200g chopped up mars bars
100g chopped up chocolate 

Cream together the butter, the sugars and the vanilla until light and creamy. Add the egg and mix well. Mix in the flour. Once combined, stir in the mars bars and chocolate. 

Roll spoonfuls of mixture into balls and place evenly on a tray with room for spreading. Flatten balls before baking in moderate oven for 10-12mins. Or if your oven is like mine and has no sense of temperature, bake until lightly golden.

Remove from oven and leave on tray to cool and harden.

Feel free to use Snickers, Cherry Ripes or whatever chocolate bar you like best!

Honeycomb Icecream
2L of vanilla icecream
1 pack of chocolate covered honeycomb

Leave icecream to melt a little.
Leave honeycomb in bag and bash it up a bit with a rolling pin.
Mix crushed honeycomb in with icecream in a mixing bowl.
In a slice baking tray, place a piece of baking paper. Evenly spread icecream out on tray, about 3cm's thick.
Return icecream to the freezer for a couple of hours.

Icecream Sandwiches
Take icecream from the freezer and remove from tray. Using a scone cutter, cut rounds from the icecream. Sandwich a round between 2 cookies. Stick them back into the freezer until ready to serve.

A sandwich where even the crusts will be devoured!!
