If you’re planning a Halloween party that’s truly bewitching, then you’ll want to serve up some magical treats to go along with it. While Hocus Pocus cocktails and hot cocoa are great choices, why not take it a step further with some Hocus Pocus-inspired Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwiches? These delightful treats are not only visually striking but also delicious, making them the perfect addition to your spooky soirée.
Creating Hocus Pocus Gelatin Shots
Before we dive into the recipe for these fantastic ice cream sandwiches, let’s take a moment to appreciate the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus, who served as the inspiration for these treats. Just like Winifred, Sarah, and Mary, each of these Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwiches has its own unique character.
Ingredients You’ll Need
Red Velvet Cookies (12 pieces)
Vanilla Ice Cream (1 quart)
Red, Green, and Purple Sprinkles
Prepare the Cookies: Start by baking or buying 12 red velvet cookies. You can find a great recipe online or pick up some pre-made ones from your local bakery.
Let the Cookies Cool: Allow your cookies to cool completely before moving on to the next step.
Create Ice Cream Layers: Take your vanilla ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften slightly. Once it’s soft enough to work with, spread it evenly onto a baking tray lined with plastic wrap. You want to create a layer that’s about the same size as your cookies, approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
Add Sprinkles: While the ice cream is still soft, sprinkle red, green, and purple jimmies evenly over the top. Gently press them into the ice cream to make sure they stick.
Freeze the Ice Cream: Place the baking tray with the ice cream layer in the freezer for at least 2-3 hours, or until the ice cream is firm.
Assemble the Ice Cream Sandwiches: Once the ice cream is completely frozen, remove it from the freezer and use a cookie cutter that’s the same size as your cookies to cut out ice cream rounds. Place each ice cream round between two red velvet cookies to create your Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Serve and Delight: Your Hocus Pocus-inspired Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwich are now ready to be served at your Halloween party. Watch your guests’ faces light up as they enjoy these whimsical and delicious treats!
These Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwich are not only a delightful addition to your Halloween party but also a fun way to pay homage to the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus.
