I know what you’re thinking – how can ‘ice cream’ and ‘guilt-free’ co-exist in the same sentence? We were also shocked at the unlikely combination when we came across this amazing afternoon snack sent from the heavens. Not only is it low-carb, no sugar added and waistline friendly, it’s delicious! You can make it ahead of time and freeze it for your enjoyment throughout the week (if you can resist eating more than one at a time!) Thank you, myrecipes.com for your plethora of tempting treats that have us drooling during our afternoon crash.
2 tablespoons brewed coffee
1 (1-ounce) sugar-free milk chocolate bar
6 (2.3-ounce) reduced-fat, no-sugar-added ice cream sandwiches
1. Combine coffee and chocolate bar in a microwave-safe dish; microwave at LOW 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring once. (Even if the chocolate does not appear to be completely melted, remove the mixture from the microwave oven and stir until the chocolate melts. The chocolate might burn if it is heated much longer than 1 minute.)
2. Spoon whipped topping into a bowl, and fold chocolate mixture into whipped topping. Stir in half of chopped wafer bars.
3. Arrange ice cream sandwiches in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Spread whipped topping mixture evenly over ice cream sandwiches. Sprinkle with remaining chopped wafer bars. Cover and freeze at least 2 hours or until firm. Cut into squares.
