It’s almost here! The best season of the year…fall!
My husband would probably say football season (or NASCAR), but for me, it’s fall. And football coming back feels like fall is just around the corner.
It still feels like summer here in San Diego though, so I decided to make football ice cream sandwiches while we beat the heat and watched the Chargers’ first game.
Even though it’s still preseason, we are so excited to get back into our Sunday routine of making yummy snacks and appetizers with football on in the background. To kick off the Chargers’ season, I decided to make ice cream footballs for us and the kids. I used blue and yellow sprinkles for the San Diego…I mean Los Angeles Chargers, and red and white sprinkles for the Arizona Cardinals.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love my rainbow sprinkles-dipped ice cream sandwiches. The great thing about this snack/dessert is how easy it is! I like to use mini-ice cream sandwiches, that way, you’ll have plenty of room for other goodies!

To make your own, here’s what you’ll need…
Step 1: Prepare supplies, unwrap mini ice cream sandwiches and pour sprinkles for each team onto separate plates.
Step 2: Insert a paper straws into the bottom of each mini ice cream sandwiches.I pushed the straw all the way to the top (I stopped right before I thought it was about to poke through). I decided to use black and white paper straws to represent referees.
Step 3: Using the cookie icing, draw the football’s laces, one down the middle and four going horizontally.
Step 4: Dip the sides of the mini ice cream sandwiches into the sprinkles (make sure not to forget the top). Tip: both Target and Michaels sell small portions of sprinkles in a large variety of colors, which is perfect for a project like this!

Step 5: Cut a piece of yellow ribbon about 2 1/2 inches long, and tie around the black and white paper straws. I used yellow ribbon to represent a penalty flag.
Well, there you have it! A simple, yummy and fun football treat to carry us into fall! We’re getting so close, I can almost smell the cinnamon and spice in the air!
