Oreo Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Behold the Turducken of Oreos. For those who aren't familiar with the Turducken, it's a duck stuffed inside a chicken inside a turkey. This recipe is essentially Oreos inside Oreos stuffed inside Oreos (meta, I know). The cookies are blended into the ice cream base with large chunks mixed in. Then, the whole thing is stuffed inside an Oreo. 

Crunchy and gooey!

Almond Gelato

That's right, gelato. No heavy cream. No eggs. Just light creamy gelato. Oh, you want to know the secret? Read on. 

The almonds are just a topping, but if you like a little crunch in the gelato itself, I recommend adding some shaved almonds just before it finishes churning. Chocolate syrup is another great topping with this flavor.

Birthday Cake Ice Cream

Yesterday was my 25th birthday. In my quarter-century wisdom, I thought, "Why have cake and ice cream when I can have cake ice cream?" Yes, that "the old, the wiser" thing is true. And wow, this ice cream really does taste exactly like birthday cake. My only birthday wish: That none of those calories actually counted. 

Who says you need a cake to blow out the candles?
