The sun is out, and after such an endless winter, it would be a crime to stay indoors and not enjoy the gorgeous weather. 

And what would make us happier then a few cold cans on the canal? Nothing, but ice cream is good too. 

This delicious recipe is easy to make and you'll bloody love them.

Seriously, you'll end up eating them all. 

Ice-cream sandwiches


For the cookies

  • 100g sugar
  • 200g butter, at room temperature
  • 300g flour

For the filling

  • 500ml vanilla ice cream (or any flavour of your choice)
  • Optional: sugar sprinkles or mini chocolate chips, to decorate


1. Heat oven to 180°C. Prepare two large baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add the flour and continue to mix until the mixture turns into a soft dough. Using your hands, press the dough together to form a ball.

3. With a floured rolling pin, roll the dough about 4 to 5 mm thick on a floured surface. Using a small round cookie cutter, cut into discs and place on prepared baking sheets.

4. Bake for 16-18 minutes then let cool completely.

5. Place a scoop of ice cream on one cookie, then place another cookie on top and press slightly. You can dip the sandwich in sugar sprinkles or mini chocolate chips if desired. Freeze until ready to serve.

We just LOVE a good food trend on Instagram – from rainbow bagels to bubble waffles.

We're always always always on the hunt for new and delicious Internet offerings, and we have struck gold. 

We were recently scrolling through one of our favourite Insta accounts @EatMeNYC when we saw it – the bunny cone. 

Easter is around the corner, and to be honest, as much as we want all the eggs, our hearts are craving these gorgeous bunny cones.

Created by New York based ice cream shop, Taiyaki NYC, these bunny cones are the sweetest treats on Insta right now. 

They're made with your choice of waffle cone, any flavour of whipped ice cream and a delightful set of bunny ears (which are edible, btw).

Top that all off with pastel coloured sprinkles and some sweets on a stick, and you may just have the most perfect cone ever. 

Taiyaki has become pretty famous as an ice cream destination, due to their many creative cones, such as their unicone – yes, inspired by unicorns. 

Actually, at Christmas they created the most adorable Christmas tree cone, that even had a little star on top. 



So we have Internet technology, we can fly all over the world and people have been to space. 

How much more advanced could we possibly get?

WELL, scientists are currently working on creating an ice cream that won't melt. Yes. We know. 

How though?

According to the gorge humans over at Bustle, The American Chemical Society revealed that it's been formulating ice cream that uses cellulose extracted from the stems of banana plants, which are normally thrown discarded after the bananas are cultivated. 

And then what happens?

These tiny little fibres taken from the banana plant are put in small portions of ice cream.  

Apparently, the scientists found promising results, in that the banana-fibre ice creams melted far more slowly than ordinary ones, and they were also more resistant to temperature fluctuations.

Welcome to the fu*king future, ladies.

Important point: no, the ice cream did not have any sort of banana taste (which is a shame in my humble opinion). 

Not only is this excellent news for us a species, but this new type of ice cream is also great for the environment.

The idea is sustainable, due to the fact that the banana plants would otherwise just be thrown in the bin.

ALSO, the ice cream would be massively helpful for human energy consumption, because transporting and storing ice cream takes up a lot of cooling energy. 

Anyway, we're not sure when this kind of ice cream will be rolled out publicly, but we sure are looking forward to the day.


We've all seen those memes, right?

"When it's payday and you start buying unnecessary shit."

Well, we have discovered the most obnoxious, and unnecessary purchase ever… in the form of an ice cream dipped in gold.

Obviously like. 

How the hell does that work, I hear you ask? 

The waffle cone is sprayed with 24-karat gold dust, filled with vanilla soft serve, and coated with 24-karat gold leaves on the vanilla where the “creaminess of the vanilla makes the gold form to every curve.” 

It's all very casual. 

Anyway, in a not-so-shocking twist, these cones are currently being sold in America, specifically Anaheim, California. 

Snowopolis (10/10 for the name) is located at the Anaheim GardenWalk, a shopping centre within walking distance from California’s Disneyland Resort.

The cone will set you back $15 – which for some cheeky solid gold, seems pretty reasonable? 

Anyway, if anyone is heading to California this summer, please try this outrageous treat. 


Do you ever wish you could sit back and devour an entire tub of ice cream, without the guilt? 

We're not big believers in the 'guilt' concept, and usually if we decide to polish off loads of ice cream – we bloody well will! 

However, it is comforting to know that on occasion, there is a healthier alternative that still satisfies that sweet tooth.

Enter – Ben & Jerry's for the absolute win! 

The Kings of frozen treats have launched a delicious range of low calorie ice cream – and we're excited. 

Most of us are still attempting the 2018 health kick, so this is the news we need.

Moo-phoria light ice cream will account for HALF of calories that a normal tub of Ben & Jerry's contains ( just 140 to 160 calories per serving.)

Take into consideration that a banana has 110 calories – make the right choice. 

The delicious sounding flavours include 'chocolate milk and cookies', 'caramel cookie fix', and 'P.B dough'

Still not entirely convinced?

Well, there's  also 60% to 70% less fat and sugar in these lovely new tubs, and no sugar substitutes. 

Moo-phoria light ice cream is also made with organic dairy – so really, it would be rude NOT to eat it. 

Pass the spoon. 



Other than family, there are two men who have always been there for us when we needed them the most – Ben and Jerry.

Whether you've had a long day at work, are going through a bad break-up, or let's face it, are just in the mood to eat a entire tub of Phish Food in one sitting, the ice cream entrepreneurs have never let us down – and now it's time for vegan and lactose intolerant consumers to get in on the action.

Earlier this year, news that Ben and Jerry's would soon bring its non-dairy ice-cream to Irish shores caused a bit of a frenzy online, and although no official release that had been revealed, people were gearing up to try the new mystery flavours.

Well, today the wait finally over, as the ice cream brand have announced that the new line-up is set to hit Irish supermarkets later this month.

Gone are the days when your non-dairy friends would drool with envy over every sweet spoonful of  ice cream you shovel into your face, because they're about to get three mouth-watering flavours of their very own, including:

  • Peanut Butter & Cookies: Vanilla non-dairy ice cream with chocolate sandwich cookies and crunchy peanut butter swirls.

  • Chocolate Fudge Brownies: Chocolate non-dairy ice cream with fudge brownies.

  • Chunkey Monkey: Banana non-dairy ice cream with chocolate chunks and walnuts.

What's more, Ben and Jerry's new flavours are the first ever non-dairy Fairtrade-certified ice cream in Ireland. It's win-win!

“Our fans dared us to go dairy-less… and we did! Creating non-dairy ice cream that meets the funky and chunky expectations of Ben & Jerry’s fans was quite a challenge,” says Ben & Jerry’s Flavour Guru, Andrea Ball.

“But we’re delighted to confirm the long wait is nearly over! Spoons at the ready to dig in…”

The non-dairy flavours will be available from late September 2017, with an RRP of €7.45.



Thought your alcopop days were behind you? Think again.

One clever little Irish ice-cream shop is taking customers back to the days of their misspent youths with its latest flavour innovation, and honestly, our mouths are watering.

Ladies and gentlemen, let us introduce you – blue WKD ice-cream.

Yep. Lick Gelato in Newcastle, Co. Down, have created a range of 'adult' flavours, including blue WKD, prosecco with strawberry and Jagermeister with Red Bull.

Although this stuff looks like the type of thing that would be served at a child's birthday party, you do need to be over 18 to get your hands on some.

Simon Welby, the mastermind behind the incredible invention, told Planet Radio that they first started to experiemnt with alcoholic flavours when catering for private events.

"The idea first started off with a prosecco and strawberry flavour for the likes of weddings and special occasions, and it led from there really," he said.

"We had a request for the WKD and gave it a go, and the response has been staggering."

"Each serving is approx equivalent of a tin of bass shandy you would buy in the shop."

This isn't the first time Lick Gelato have been praised for their innovative flavours, in fact, just last month the shop scooped the prize for best newcomer at the 2017 Ice Cream Awards.

Road trip to Down anyone?


Eating a big tub of ice cream while it's warm outside is one of life's little pleasures.

But when you're broke AF, it can be hard to come to terms with spending €8 on, well… anything.

So, when we came across this homemade coffee ice cream, we legit jumped for joy.

Not only is it homemade, but it's dairy free and only has FOUR ingredients.

Spotted by the Daily Mail, a wellness blogger under the name My Crazy Good Life has created the coffee ice cream and it looks so delish.

All you need is 3 to 4 sliced frozen bananas, a strong cup of espresso coffee, honey and vanilla extract.

You literally just have to blend all of the ingredients together, freeze, and eat!

It takes one hour to set, so you know, by tonight you could be chilling at home with a glass of vino and some homemade ice cream!

It doesn't get better, right?


With all sorts of summer foodie trends hitting us left, right and centre, it can be difficult to try every single one of them.

However, Vodka Key Lime Pie Häagen-Dazs ice cream? Now, that is something we'll be keeping our eye on.

The ice cream brand has just released five new boozy flavours in Canada, and we're praying the company bring them over to our small green isle.

Among the new flavours are, Rum Vanilla Caramel Blondie, Whiskey Chocolate Truffle, Irish Cream Coffee & Biscotti, Rum Ginger Cookie, as well as the delightful Vodka Key Lime Pie.

We need to try one of these before summer is out.


In what can only be described as a feat of food engineering, one innovative bakery in the US have created a combination of sweet treats that you never even knew you needed – until now.

Introducing the ice-cream donut.

The guys and gals over at B Sweet Bar in Los Angeles have blessed the world with their mouth-watering dessert know as the 'Halo'.

According to the shop's official Instagram account, the dish consists of "a scoop of your favourite #icecream heat-sealed inside our fresh glazed donut!!! Hot on the outside, cold on the inside and yummy allover!"

Customers can choose to fill the classic donut with a scoop of their favourite ice-cream, with options of vanilla, mint chocolate chip, cookies and cream, rocky road and chocolate malted crunch to choose from.

B Sweet is also famous for its rotating menu of over 40 different flavours of bread pudding, which honestly looks way more appealing than it sounds.

Alas, these beautiful creations are only available in LA right now, but fingers crossed the recipe will make it onto Irish shores sooner rather than later.


Pizza flavour ice-cream is now a thing and we don't know how we feel about.

In theory, two of the greatest foods on the planet should combine to make the perfect dish, but we can't help be a tad sceptical about this slightly odd flavour fusion.

The guys and gals at Philadelphia's Little Baby's Ice Cream have decided to push the limits of dessert as we know it by creating a pizza flavoured ice cream complete with tomato, oregano, basil, salt and garlic.

What's more, although the customers can enjoy the treat in a traditional waffle cone, the shop actually recommends serving it with a slice of your favourite pizza.

Because hey, if you're going to do it, you might as well do it right.

This isn't the first time the Philadelphia ice-cream shop has baffled customers with their odd choice of flavours. They're also known for their Cricket Cake, which is exactly what it sounds like.

Other stars of this flavour freak-show include Cucumber Dill, Pepper Lavender and its ‘flagship oddball flavour’, Earl Grey Sriracha.

Unfortunately, you'll have to make a trip to the States if you want to sample these wonderfully weird creations, but tasty or not, Little Baby's Ice Cream just got added to our foodie bucket list.

Move over chocolate and strawberry, a new ice cream flavour has arrived to steal the top spot on our favourite flavours list.

We love ice cream, and we love gin, so combining the two to create a tasty gelato concoction is the stuff of dreams.

Scoops, located in Ranelagh and on Aungier Street, Dublin, is serving up scoops of the soft stuff laced with Hendricks gin and Fevertree tonic. 

If that wasn't enough, the gelato is also flavoured with cucumber, so it's literally like indulging in a refreshing G&T with all the toppings.

But better, of course, because ice cream. 

They also serve crepes and coffees, so if you have one G&T gelato too many you can sort yourself out with a strong brew and a bit of soakage.

Please, just serve us a vat of the stuff…
