Keeping Cool with Carol’s Cookies

Whether you’re looking for a fun activity for the kids, or just a tasty way to cool down, Carol’s Cookies are here to help.  We’ve put together our favorite summer recipes (both new and old) for you to enjoy!

Oatmeal Yogurt Parfait (2 servings)

  • 1 Oatmeal Raisin with Pecan Cookie
  • 1 ½ Cup yogurt (Greek style or regular)
  • Assorted Fresh Beriies

Crumble cookie and place 1/4th of the crumbs into each of two parfait glasses.  Layer yogurt on top of the crumbs in each glass, and then add berries.  Repeat to make another layer of each.

Brownie Cookies n’ Cream Popsicle (4 servings)

  • ¾ Cup Milk
  • ½ Cup Cool Whip Topping
  • 2 Tablespoons Ultrafine Sugar
  • 1 Brownie Cookie cut into 4 pieces

In a blender, add in milk, Cool Whip and sugar and blend until smooth.  Add in Brownie Cookie Chunks until cookie is broken into small pieces.  Transfer mixture to popsicle mold.  Freeze for 45 minutes then insert popsicle stick.  Freeze for 4 more hours and enjoy!

Carol’s Cookies Ice Cream Sandwich (1 serving)

  • Two of your favorite Carol’s Cookies (We used chocolate chip)
  • Your favorite ice cream

For our Ice Cream Sandwich, we took two of our fresh Chocolate Chip cookies and our favorite Homer’s Vanilla Bean ice cream.  Let your ice cream sit out for 3-5 minutes so it’s more pliable.  Take a scoop of ice cream and place it on the flat side of the cookie and gently spread ice cream to cover the cookie’s surface.  Top with your second cookie (flat side down!) and press slightly to allow the ice cream to disperse more evenly.  Enjoy as is, or wrap the sandwich in plastic wrap and place in the freezer to enjoy at a later time.

Chocolate Sugar Cookie Milkshake (2-3 servings)

  • 2 cups chocolate ice cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1-2 Carol’s Cookies Sugar cookie

First combine your ice cream and milk in a blender and blend until smooth.  We used Homer’s chocolate ice cream and 2% milk.  Break your sugar cookie roughly into thirds and add to the blender.  Blend again until cookie is broken up until your desired consistency.

Snickerdoodle & Strawberry Trifle (2 servings)

  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 Snickerdoodle cookies broken into chunks
  • 1 ½ cup sliced, hulled strawberries
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • cinnamon

In a large bowl beat the milk, sour cream, and vanilla extract on a low speed until thickened and combined.  Fold in the whipped heavy cream.   Place ¼ of the cookie chunks in the bottom of each glass.  Top with ¼ of the sliced strawberries in each class.  Follow with a large dollop of whipped topping.  Repeat with remaining ingredients.   Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Carol’s Cookies S’more (1 massive serving: perfect for sharing)

  • 2 Carol’s Cookies (We recommend Toffee Crunch to add another dimension of deliciousness)
  • ½ Chocolate bar (approximately .77 ounces)
  • Large Marshmallows (might we suggest using 2-4 for the proper marshmallow to cookie ratio)

Roast marshmallows slowly over an open flame.  Kids make sure you have parental supervision or approval first.  You can use a campfire or fire pit, or in a pinch, a gas stove or sterno.  We think Carol’s Toffee Crunch is divine in this recipe.  With the flat side of the cookie up, place your piece of chocolate on it.  Once your marshmallow is toasted to your liking, place it atop the chocolate and top with the other cookie.   Open wide, and enjoy!

Note: if you’re physically unable to put entire sandwich in your mouth (we don’t blame you) feel free to take the top off.
