This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples from the sponsor companies but, as always, opinions are mine.

Since I have strawberry ice cream on the site, and it’s really good, I decided to use it for these strawberry shortcake ice cream bars. My husband and youngest love those ice cream truck strawberry bars. I knew recreating that exact bar would be challenging. After chatting with my son about how to make it we settled on this recipe.

We tossed around sugar cookies and even those chocolate wafer cookies but thought ‘Nilla wafer with freeze dried strawberries would be a good place to start. I was secretly voting for the chocolate wafers but the ‘Nilla wafers are a good choice. We will probably try a chocolate version soon.

Strawberry shortcake ice cream bars are perfect when you need a little something sweet.

Ingredients

  • 2 pints very soft strawberry ice cream
  • 2 cups mini 'Nilla Wafers, crushed
  • ¼ cup freeze-dried strawberries

Instructions

  1. Divide ice cream among ice-pop molds, insert sticks, and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, pulse 1 cup cookies in a mini food processor until fine crumbs form. Transfer crumbs to a plate. Add strawberries to remaining crumbs in food processor and pulse a few times to create strawberry crumbs. Stir strawberry crumbs into plain crumbs on plate.
  3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Dip molds briefly into hot water. Working one at a time, remove ice pops from mold, one at a time, and thaw briefly. Dip in crumbs, turning to coat, sprinkling crumbs over pops if necessary, and pressing to adhere. Transfer pops to prepared baking sheet and freeze again at least 30 minutes before serving.
