These have to be my favorite summertime treat, not only are they the perfect combination of donuts and ice cream, they are easy to make and loved by adults and kids alike.
Perfect for National Donut (doughnut) Day on June 3rd
Day old donuts work the best, I put them in the freezer for 2-3 hours, overnight is just fine. It makes the donuts much easier to slice and gives a nice clean cut. Freeze them also helps keep the donuts from getting soggy from the ice cream.
After frozen, simply slice the donuts in half, then take a scoop of your favorite ice cream and place it on one half, them place the other half on top to make the sandwich. I like to call them donutwiches, or just yummy!
You can place the prepared donutwiches back in the freezer and they'll keep for a few day, if you wanted to make them ahead of time for summer parties. These are also a big hit whenever I make them for birthday parties!
