Do It Yourself Dessert for Easy Entertaining

So it's the weekend and you don't feel like spending time in the kitchen baking for the family and friends staying with you.  Set up an Ice Cream Sandwich Buffet station and everyone will have fun putting together their "custom" ice cream sandwich.  Use your imagination and promote creativity.  Here are some suggestions :
Any of the following are great bases to build your sandwich: Pound cake, graham crackers, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, sugar cookies, even toasted waffles.
Frozen filling choices: Sorbet, frozen yogurt, sherbet, gelato
Spread choices:  Hot fudge, Nutella, Marshmallow spread, Butterscotch Topping, Caramel Topping, Fruit Jam such as strawberry or raspberry
Don't forget the chocolate chips, mint or peanut butter chips (all found in the baking aisle)

Make it easy on yourself and use disposable paper bowls and spoons.  Clean - up is a snap. Enjoy the weekend and appreciate the day.  Hope to see you for Grill Tuesday.
