With the recent sales, chances are good that you have a carton of Häagen-Dazs® Ice Cream in your freezer. I have a couple of tasty flavors that I have been enjoying a little at a time every couple of days!

Obviously you can enjoy that amazing rich and creamy ice cream right from the carton…but, it is also fantastic when included in your favorite recipes. When you are hankering for something extra special, why not try this recipe for Mexican Hot Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches?!

While I do love a bowl of ice cream, an ice cream sandwich is the ultimate for me!

This recipe is very easy to make, I can speak from experience as I’ve made it many times. In fact, at this point I probably don’t even need the recipe! I skip the cinnamon candy but you can add them if you are a fan.

Raid your pantry and grab that Häagen-Dazs from the freezer and you can enjoy huge flavor this weekend too. If you don’t happen to have any Häagen-Dazs® on hand, just visit the frozen aisle at your local Publix and grab a tub of the Dulce de Leche Ice Cream and a few additional ingredients and you be ready to go!
