I scream, you scream, we all scream for BACON Ice Cream…Sandwiches!!
Happy National Ice Cream Sandwich Day! Look what I found for all you Bacon Addicts!
You know the packets of crumbled bacon Real bacon!) you can buy to make your crispy-bacon-crumbles life easier? Did you also know that they come in a 1.25-pound bag version? Neither did I until I saw my dad walking around the house munching out of the bag like it was pretzels. Fortunately, he didn’t finish it off, but I was left with a whole lot of bacon crumbles.
Then, inspiration struck. Bacon. Ice Cream. Sandwiches.
I wholeheartedly encourage you to fry up some Bacon strips and freshly bake the cookies of your dreams, create sandwiches with your favorite ice cream (homemade of course!), and then encrust those.
But when inspiration strikes, you do what you have to do, and what I had to do was buy a box of ice cream sandwiches and use pre-crumbled bacon.
Here’s the part that can almost pass for a recipe, except the part where I never measure anything, and I hope you don’t either, because that’s how this “recipe” rolls.
Using the Bacon crumbles. Shake some brown sugar (I used light; I’m sure dark is delightful) into a non-stick pan. I’m going to guess it was around half a cup. Pour a bit of maple syrup on top, perhaps about a teaspoon. Add a sliver of butter (maybe half a tablespoon) to the pile and turn it on medium heat. Let it all melt, then pour a pile of bacon on top and start tossing until they’re all coated. Let it cool and then break up the pile. This is why the non-stick pan was a good idea.
A more industrious and less hungry person would coat the entire exposed side of the ice cream sandwich for indulging. I confess. I slapped some on the sides, snapped this quick picture, and devoured it. Bacon as you go. That’s the way to do it.
