These fun desserts are really easy to make. The only things you need are ice cream sandwiches, a can of cupcake icing and edible monster eyes. You can typically find these in the grocery store next to the food coloring and sprinkles. Or you can just order some from Amazon here.

Prep The Sandwiches – First, unwrap your ice cream sandwiches and then cut them in half.

Assembly Tips

Keep’em Cold – You may need to put them back in the freezer in between each of the steps so they don’t melt all over your counter while you’re making them.

Warm Knife – If you notice they aren’t cutting smoothly, run your knife under hot water first.

Homemade Ingredients – I like to use the canned icing but you can always make your own frosting if you have a favorite recipe. If you’re feeling even more ambitious, you can even make your own Candy Eyes.
