Hey guys, it’s Ro, welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! It is summer time and it is really heating up here in California so I thought, let’s make a chilled Geeky Treat today, so today we are gonna be making some homemade Game Boy Ice Cream Sandwiches, let’s get started! If you would like to make these super easy mode, you can just buy the pre-made Ice Cream rectangle sandwiches that you find at the grocery store But I’m gonna be making mine from scratch, so that I can make them a little bit bigger, to look like the actual Game Boy size

But, if you’re in a hurry and you want to make some cold treats for summertime, you can just buy the pre-made ice cream sandwiches So the things you will need to make these from scratch, will be: 2-2/3 Cups of flour, 1 cup of sugar, 2 eggs, 2-1/2 sticks of unsalted butter, 3/4 cup of cocoa powder, 1/2 a teaspoon of salt, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract You’ll also need a cookie sheet and a piece of fitted parchment paper, and I’ve got a little lollipop stick For the middle of the sandwich you’ll need some ice cream, here I’ve got classic vanilla ice cream, but you can use whatever ice cream flavor is your favorite Then to decorate we’re gonna need green and black candy melts, and some M&M’s

You will also need a big mixing bowl and a small mixing bowl, sifter, whisk, a flipper-flapper… This is called a spatula And an electric mixer, now let’s put it all together! The first thing that we’re gonna be doing is scooping our ice cream into a cookie sheet, but we’re first gonna line our cookie sheet with a piece of wax paper, ooop! If you don’t have a cookie sheet, you can just use a glass pan, anything that you’d like I like the cookie sheet because it is about an inch tall And that is how tall exactly I want my little Ice Cream Sandwich filling to be

And now we’re gonna scoop, scoop, scoop! Come on now! Come on now! Come on! Oh my gosh he’s frozen on there! Now that we’ve got all of our ice cream in the pan, you’re gonna take a spoon, and smooth it over Bewm! Now you’re gonna pop this in the freezer to re-freeze, for about an hour or two And while it’s re-freezing, we are gonna make our cookies! The first thing that we’re gonna do to make these cookies is: In a small bowl we are gonna sift our flour and cocoa powder Now we’re gonna whisk them together and set this off to the side Next, in a medium bowl, we are gonna cream together our butter, sugar and salt

I like to add my butter first, and then mix it together until it’s smooth, and then you’re gonna mix in your sugar and salt until it’s evenly combined Now that we got those all mixed up we are gonna add 2 egg yolks, remember just the yellow part into our mixture And then you’re gonna add your vanilla extract, ooooh! And then mix it up one more time until everything is evenly combined Now we have our butter mixture and our dry mixture, and we are going to combine them, I’m going to add the dry mixture to the butter mixture in thirds, and mix them up in-between until they are evenly combined Got our cookie dough all mixed up and I just put it on top of my counter

And I lightly covered the surface with flour so that the cooke dough doesn’t stick And if it’s a little bit crumbly, that’s OK! This is a drier recipe, I love this drier cookie recipe because it compliments the ice cream so well! It’s really good! So don’t worry about the little crumbles… You just squish it together! Now I’m just gonna pack it down with my hands to be somewhat flat, and then grab a rolling pin, and smooth it out! Just rolled out our dough and now we’re gonna cut out our little rectangle cookies Cut as many as you’d like Just remember you’ll need 2 cookies to complete your ice cream sandwich Remove the excess dough around your cookies and then scoop them onto your baking sheet

Got all of our cookies on the sheet and now for that classic Ice Cream Sandwich look, we’re gonna poke little holes on the top I like to start with three holes, and then two, and then three, and then two and then three and then two and then three! While the cookies are baking (at 350 Degrees for 14 Minutes), we are gonna make some decorations We are going to make the screen on the little Game Boy and some buttons Bewp! While the cookies are baking, we are gonna make some decorations I printed out these two templates, and I’ll put a link down below if you’d like to use these, or you can make your own, whatever you’d like

Take a little tape, tape ‘em down to the surface, then you’re gonna take this piece of wax paper and place it on top, now we are going to trace and fill in our little designs with our melted candy In this plastic bag I melted the black candy melts, and I put a number two tip at the top for a little bit more control, and then I’m gonna use it to trace and fill in these little Dpads Now we got our Dpads done, and now we are gonna use the green candy melts to make our screens Once your cookies have finished baking and they’ve had plenty of time to cool, now we are going to decorate, my favorite part! So over here I just took a few of the cookies, these are gonna be the tops of the Ice Cream Sandwiches And we are going to attach our little screens and Dpads, and then our mini M&M’s, we’re gonna be using two little red M&M’s for the buttons

To attach the little details I’m gonna be using some of the extra dark candy melts in this little plastic baggie, as adhesive So you’re just gonna take one of these little guys, bewp! And on the back put a little dab of your candy melt, and then place it on top of your ice cream sandwich Then we’re gonna attach a little Dpad and we got our mini M&Ms, for the little buttons Then you’re gonna do this to the rest of your cookies! Our cookies are assembled and now I just took out the tray of frozen Ice Cream, And now you’re gonna take your rectangle cookie cutter, and we're gonna cut out the middle of our ice cream sandwiches, and this doesn’t have a really soft, grippy top, so I’m gonna be using my mitt, so it doesn’t hurt your hands, and then you gotta put some pressure on the top Eee-eee-eee-eee-eee-eee-eee-eee! This is called the jumping technique Then you pull it out, perfect, just like that! Then you’re gonna place it onto a little cutting board over here

You’re gonna cut out as many as you can in the Ice Cream tray, and then pop these back in the freezer so that they’ll hold their shape and we will assemble our cookies! Ta-da! Here are the Game Boy Home-Made Ice Cream Sandwiches that we made today! I hope you guys enjoyed them, I love them, they’re just like little, retro-geeky, summer treats to keep you cool!
