Isn’t it great having kids around that help you cook and also get some really cool ideas from cartoons? The idea belongs to my dear daughters, who saw it on Strawberry Shortcake.

How to make ice cream sandwich
Mix the butter,sugar,vanilla essence and the egg until a cream is obtained.
Add flour,cocoa powder and almonds.
Make little balls from the dough and roll in the extra one cup of almonds.
Place them in the baking tray and level them down a bit with a fork.
Bake for around 15 minutes (depending on your oven) or until they’re starting to get slightly crispy.
Allow them to cool and fill with ice cream. Freeze and serve.
