Psssst! You’re smiling…..
Who doesn’t smile when getting a big bowl of ridiculously creamy ice? Even more so if said ice cream is sandwiched between two rich chocolate truffle cookies! Make that ice cream Dreyer’s Slow Churned Limited Edition Peppermint Wonderland and you might as well pass out, with a big fat grin on your face.
In the spirit of the Holidays, Dreyer’s Slow Churned Ice Cream has the oh so delicious Peppermint Wonderland available to devour. This ice cream is ridiculously rich and creamy and it’s 1/2 the fat of regular ice cream. It’s a win-win! And, I love the Peppermint Wonderland flavor which perfectly pairs with chocolate!
You may ask yourself, is it really that rich and creamy if it as half the fat and 1/3 fewer calories than regular ice cream? I am here to tell you it totally is! To get this rich and creamy texture they slowly churn the ice cream using non-fat milk. By slow churning the ice cream they get a rich and creamy texture that will make you smile from ear to ear.
Ice cream creates happiness. Think about it, would we all be screaming for ice cream if it wasn’t awesome? I mean, right now I am trapped in a house after a winter storm blanketed the entire town with ice, but even in this not so perfect situation I can’t help but smile while I eat a scrumptious ice cream sandwich. Yes I am eating an ice cream sandwich during an ice storm, because ice cream is that awesome!
The cookies for these sandwiches were kind of amazing! They had crispy cookie edges and the center was almost nothing but truffle. If you want you can serve them warm topped with ice cream and they have more of a molted chocolate texture. Equally amazing!
