Peanut Butter & Jelly Poptart Ice Cream Sandwiches

Sooooo this weekend is Memorial Weekend.  Do you have any fun plans?!

I don’t, other than likely eating my weight in macaroni and cheese burgers (yes, it’s a thing).  And probably avoiding both the heat and wearing a swimsuit, both of which I find agonizing.

To beat the heat AND satisfy any sweet cravings lingering after a BBQ binge, may I suggest some of these AWESOME peanut butter & jelly-ice cream sandwiches?  Spoiler alert: yes, I AM suggesting exactly that.

poptar1The idea of sammiching ice cream in between PopTarts isn’t exactly new, but when I spotted this Breyer’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Blast ice cream, I knewwww I had to snatch it up and use it somehow (if not smother my face in the carton).  Then the idea of using strawberry PopTarts came to mind, and then adding some more peanut butter and sprinkles was just necessary.  Thus, this incredible creation was born!

They’re made in minutes and if you whip them up the night prior, or even in the morning, they’ll be frosty and ready to eat by lunchtime!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Poptart Ice Cream Sandwiches
Author: 
Recipe type: Frozen Desserts
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
 
Frostify your PB&J sammies with these fun PopTart Ice Cream Sandwiches!
Ingredients
  • 2 pkg (4 total) strawberry PopTarts
  • 2 cups Breyer's Peanut Butter & Jelly Blast ice cream, softened
  • 4 tsp smooth peanut butter
  • Sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Open each package of PopTarts and carefully cut each PopTart in half crosswise. You'll have 4 sandwiches. Smear about 1 tsp of peanut butter on the bottom of each PopTart half.
  2. Scoop about ½ cup of ice cream onto the bottom (unfrosted) side of one of the PopTart halves. Kind of gently smear it around to coat the tart. Take another tart half and gently press it on top of the softened ice cream, frosted side up. Using a butter knife, smooth out any super messy sides.
  3. Roll the sandwich edges into sprinkles. Loosely wrap the sandwiches into squares of wax paper and place them on a plate or cookie sheet. Freeze the sandwiches for about 2 hours minimum, 4 hours recommended, or until firm. Eat up!
  4. *Note: heads-up! This recipe is easily doubled!! If you can't find the peanut butter & jelly ice cream, try using strawberry ice cream or even a raspberry sorbet!*

 

DSC_1435AOkay, so if you’ve never had a frozen PopTart, please eat them immediately.  They are AWESOME!  And if you can find that ice cream, grab two cartons.  It’s a rich vanilla ice cream swirled with strawberry jelly and lots of hunks of peanut butter.  And when sandwiched between those flaky, berry-filled PopTarts, these make for excellent little melty sammies!  If you’re either A) a kid, B) a PBJ lover, or C) human, you’ll love these!

Have a great weekend!!

xo, Hayley

  1. OMG these look amazing, so cute. I’m hating that you american seems to get all the yummy stuff, I wish I could my hands on that PB & J icecream

  2. We must have been separated at birth. I grew up eating Pop Tarts for breakfast, pb&j sandwiches for lunch and ice cream for dinner. Sign me up right now for the Domestic Rebel Memorial Day weekend. The fro-yo place by me actually has broken up Pop Tart pieces for toppings. Eeee!

  3. Yum! Pop-Tarts! Have you seen the new chocolate and PB Pop-Tarts?

  4. Okay seriously? Those are Ah-May-Zing! Love it! haha
    My teenager just squealed with delight when I turned to show her. I think I know what we’re doing on this wet, rainy, humid day. 😉
    Great recipe – thanks!

  5. Oh My Word! These look so darn cute and I’ll bet they taste amazing!

  6. No Memorial Day plans for us – just being lazy and maybe my husband dragging me to see the new Star Trek movie 🙂 I’d much rather be eating these at home watching a marathon of Sex and the City! Not that I do that…

  7. Sinfully sweet! YES!

  8. Far out. Hayley, you’ve outdone yourself again! I’ve never eaten a frozen poptart. Actually, poptarts are no longer sold here in Australia, unless you manage to find some imported American ones at a specialty food store!! These sammiches look incredible though. I don’t think I’ll be able to find the pb & j ice cream here either 🙁 waaaah! I might try and make these with home made strawberry jam biscuits and vanilla ice cream with layers of peanut butter. Nothing like your originals, but… well, better than nothing.

      Oh man, Laura — that sucks that popTarts aren’t sold in AU anymore!! Hopefully you’ll get lucky and snag some one of these days. And FYI, I think your biscuit ice cream sandwich sounds DELICIOUS!!

  9. These sound fantastic! I love PBJ and I love ice cream, so I need to get my hands on that ice cream!

  15. Oh my goodness! These look absolutely fabulous.

  16. I can’t stop laughing at these! Not my thing, but they do look cute.

  17. Seriously, where do you come up with this stuff?! I never would’ve thought of this but I’m sure if it was given to me I would eat the heck out of it!

  18. Ooh I have got to try that ice cream and these ice cream sandwiches are so fun and creative!

  19. These just want me to throw a party! And eat all the ice cream sandwiches!

  20. I saw the ice cream the other day!!! I wondered if it was delicious. It’s delicious, right?
    Also… I’ve never had a frozen Pop Tart. Is that a thing I missed?
