I know it's still a little cold for me to break out an Ice Cream Sandwich recipe, but I couldn't help myself. Can you blame me? Look how pretty they are! SO MANY SPRINKLES.

If you are having a rough day - or just really upset about the instagram update - these are a sure way to brighten your day! And yes...I am aware that rhymed. And I totally am ok with it.
