At work we recently hosted a bake sale to help out a fellow employee that was going through some challenging times within their family. The bake sale, 50/50 and donations all went to help this family out. As a new employee this really impressed me and showed how much the company truly is a ‘family’ – the most functional, dysfunctional family, but still a family. For the bake sale I made these yummy little homemade ice cream sandies (aka. sandwiches). Within one day of fundraising we’ve raised approximately $2,500 for our fellow employee! Impressive if you ask me!
- 1 pack of cake mix (any flavour except angel food)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup of oil
Scoop into small balls, place on parchment paper and bake for 8-11 minutes at 350°F. Let them completely cool (you can even put them in the freezer) before scooping the ice cream/frozen yogurt in between them.
For the filling – simple! Just scoop ice cream or my personal favourite, Chapman’s Frozen Yogurt (their best flavour is Nanaimo Bar!) onto one cookie bottom and smoosh another on top. Consume.
Enjoy these little treats & I hope they can cool you down on a hot summer day or put a smile on someone’s face :).
