Seriously man, necessity is the  mother of invention. These teeny tiny little ice cream sandwiches were not the plan. I did not plan to make ice cream sandwiches the size of a quarter. It just sort of happened. I made a big batch of pink lemonade cheesecake filling for my Pink Lemonade No Bake Cheesecake Parfaits. I didn’t want to make a gazillion parfaits so my brain got to spinning and it occurred to me that the filling would make amazing ice cream sandwich filling.

I got everything organized on the counter. Then I ran into the studio/office to make sure I had some natural light left and checked my camera equipment. I ran back into the kitchen knowing I only had about 10 minutes of natural light left. I opened the box of Nilla Wafers and ripped open the bag inside. Well, colour me surprised when I saw they were not the normal “small” Nilla Wafers, they were the “teeny tiny miniature” Nilla Wafers. I thought my plan was foiled, but then I thought “screw it” and made these little cutie-pie sandwiches.

I’m not going to lie to you, they are tedious to make. The Nilla Wafers are about the size of a thumbnail so it’s tricky not touching the filling as you slide them together. It’s totally worth the effort though. They turned out to be super cute little ice cream sandwiches.

So a huge thank you to my husband for not listening to me when I said to get the normal Nilla Wafers. He runs to the store for me often which I love. I’ve learned over the years not to expect the whole list to come home “correctly”. This time it turned out to be a happy surprise. I was able to make the cutest little ice cream sandwiches in the land. At one point I may have pretended to be a giant eating my dessert. Active imagination, what can I say.

Pink Lemonade Miniature Ice Cream Sandwiches

Super tiny Nilla Wafers filled with pink lemonade cheesecake filling! They are miniatures bites of happiness!

Ingredients

  • 1 package of miniature Nilla Wafers
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 package (8 ounces) of cream cheese, softened, and whipped smooth
  • 1 individual sized package (4.5 g) of Crystal Light Pink Lemonade Mix
  • Optional: pink food colouring, not necessary at all, personal choice

Instructions

  • Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Clear a spot in your freezer for the cookie sheet for freezing these.
  • In a stand mixtures combine the heavy cream, confectioners' sugar, and granulated sugar. Start mixer on low with the whisk attachment. Once it starts to thicken slightly you can increase speed until it's on high. Whisk on high till the mixture is fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl whip the softened cream cheese with a mixer until it's smooth and there are no chunky pieces, add the lemonade mix slowly and mix until combined.
  • Add the cream cheese mixture to the whipped cream mixture and whisk on medium speed until it's smooth and combined.
  • Transfer to a piping bag.
  • Pipe a good sized dollop on the flat side of the first cookie. Top with another cookie.
  • Set on lined cookie sheet and repeat till finished.
  • Stick the pan inside the freezer for 1 to 2 hours.
  • You can eat them right away, or store them in ziploc bags or air tight containers in the freezer.
  • Serve with a big old I scream for Ice Cream smile!

I made a half batch of these because I used the same pink lemonade cheesecake mixture for my Pink Lemonade No Bake Cheesecake Parfaits.

I hope you get a chance to make these. I loved them since I’m a huge pink lemonade fan. It you don’t care for citrus these will not “be your thang”. Use raspberry or strawberry filling instead. You’ll get less pucker. I, however, love a good pucker.

Thanks again to The Messy Baker. I interviewed Jennie for my Burning Down The Kitchen Series and I chose to make her Gluten Free Lemonade Dip. That dip inspired me to the Pink Lemonade No Bake Cheesecake Parfaits and this recipe as well.

Hope you enjoy this one and it inspires you to get in the kitchen this weekend. Happy Weekend, stay warm and cozy!

    Any time I’m feeling gloomy, all I have to do is show up here to see what silliness you’re up to and my day is saved. :) What a lot of work! They ARE cute though.

  2. 3

    I can already tell that I’d have been pretending to be a giant while eating them too. I love some good pucker power so these are right up my alley.

      Ha, I spend way too much time acting out scenarios in my house. We should set up a video camera in the kitchen. I’m an uninhibited spaz in my kitchen.

    Yikes, those wafers even look tiny in the photos so I can’t imagine how long it took to pipe these sandwiches together. I would’ve inhaled the whole batch of them in 1/10th of the time it took you to make. They look adorable!

  4. 7

    These are adorable Kim. I love it when mistakes turn out to be amazing surprises!

  5. 9

    These are so cute, and I think the pink colour should be mandatory – I love everything about pink lemonade!

    The funny thing about tiny food is if you get the camera close enough, it looks big. When I was developing and photographing recipes for a French company, I would make tiny cakes and photograph them up close to make them look full size. Otherwise, I would have been full size with all the calories around.

    These are super cute! I am sure they were a pain but well worth it once the cute factor comes into play. They would be perfect for a baby shower!

  8. 15

    Omg they’re so cute, Kim. I can just see myself popping one into my mouth w my right hand, then another w my left, then another and another…..

    I bet they would work also work using Country Time pink lemonade mix instead of the Crystal Light. I prefer not to use sugar-free/sugar-substitutes.

      Absolutely. It would work with any mix, you could even use a little frozen concentrate or lemon extract too. Whatever works for your diet. We rarely use sugar free stuff either but I like those packets for water on occasion.

    These are so cute… little pop in your mouth ice cream sandwiches. I would pop a dozen of them and not feel guilty. :)

  11. 21

    OMG How cute are these?!?

  12. 22

    Adorable and easy little one bite ice cream sandwiches! Definitely perfect to satiate any cravings!

  13. 23

    You had me at pink lemonade!

  14. 24

    Nilla Wafers are my Kryptonite. I can’t stop myself… these look insane and awesome, Kim!

  15. 25

    OMGosh! Does it get any cuter than this? I don’t think so! I thought you had me at the adorable mini ice cream sandwiches and then I got to the bottom of the post with all the other deliciousness! Looks like I’m gonna be busy!! Everything looks so good!! ~Marion
