Ice cream is undoubtedly one of the easiest and most rewarding fixes for the heat. Just going to the grocery to buy your favorite flavor gets you in a better mood already. But before you open the tub and dig in, we challenge you to wait a little bit longer. Endure the “I SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM” voice in your head for just a few more minutes. An outrageous, delicious reward awaits.

No life of an ice cream-lover is complete without trying these upgrades.

Here’s the recipe.

When someone offers you PB & J, the only acceptable answer after trying this is—“only if it’s an ice cream sandwich.” Try making your own peanut butter cookies or go for store-bought ones. And then use those nutty disks to sandwich the delightful combination of vanilla ice cream and berry preserves.

This is probably the easiest recipe out of the bunch, yet the end result will definitely solicit ooohs and aaahs. Ice cream sugar cones serve as the pie’s crust, which is perfect for times when you come home from the grocery with broken cone pieces (aka a broken heart). Homemade or store-bought strawberry ice cream tops the crust and fresh strawberries finish everything off.
