Ice Cream Please!

I don't know about you, but I don't need an excuse to eat ice cream. It's my favorite dessert and I usually eat it guilt-free. But in case you do need an excuse to indulge, here are a few:

1) It's my birthday
2) It's your birthday
3) It's incredibly hot outside
4) I need more calcium in my diet
5) I'm feeling sad
6) I'm feeling happy
7) I need to finish it because the power went out
8) I need more space in my freezer (for frozen veggies)
9) It's National Ice Cream Day (July 3rd, but there's actual ice cream days almost weekly!)
10) I have a sore throat

Or you can just say- I'm an adult dammit and I don't need an excuse to eat ice cream!

Can you tell what I'm in the mood for? Yes you guessed it...and not just any regular ice cream scoop but these cute little sandwhiches made from these super fun molds (a gift from my friend Kim-thanks girl!).

Get these here, or similar ones here
These molds are really easy and fun to use! Check out detailed instructions here.

I decided to go with hearts and stars

I baked a thin layer of chocolate chip cookies

Cut-out your shapes while the cookie is still warm

I let these cool before layering 

I couldn't resist just eating one...or two

The perfect treat to say I heart you....

Look at me- I'm the Star of the party!

Did I make you scream for ice cream? Go ahead, treat yourself :) And in case you're bored, click here or here for some random facts about this cold and delicious treat.
