These Crunchy Cinnamon Ice Cream Sandwiches are a fun dessert update on the classic combination of cereal and milk.
Creamy, vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two sweet and crunchy homemade cookies made with cereal – these Cinnamon Ice Cream Sandwiches are a fun afterschool or anytime treat!
We’ve made our fair share of breakfast cookies, but this is the first time we’ve mixed cereal into our cookie dough!
We went with the new Cinnamon PEBBLES™ for this recipe for it’s combination of crispy rice cereal and cinnamony sweetness. Fruity Pebbles or Cocoa Pebbles wold also make delicious cookie mix-ins!
The base of this recipe comes from my friend Jackie over at Happy Hooligans with her crunchy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
I surprised Miss G afterschool by having all of the ingredients from Walmart to make those crunchy cinnamon pebble cookies ready to go. She was so excited to bake cookies before supper – we usually save our baking for the weekends so it was a special treat.
Make sure you have enough time between baking the cookies and when you want to enjoy them for the cookies to cool. If you’re in a rush, just stick the cookies in the fridge or freezer so they don’t melt the ice cream, or just serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream on the side for a completely different and indulgent dessert.

How to Make Cinnamon Ice Cream Sandwiches
Preheat your oven to 325F
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
Place the butter and sugars in a large bowl and cream with your hand mixer for 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla, and beat well.
Stir the baking soda, baking powder and salt into the flour and add to the cookie batter. Mix well.
Add the oats and Cinnamon Pebbles for a delicious crunch.
Scoop out 2 Tablespoon portions of dough and form them into small discs.
Place them at least 2-3″ apart on the cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.
Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 1 minute to set, before transferring to a cooling rack.
Let the cookies cool completely before the next step. (Place in the freezer if you are in a rush.)
Take two cookies and place 1-2 scoops of vanilla ice cream on one cookie, then sandwich them together. Enjoy immediately or place in the freezer to prevent melting.

We purchased all of the ingredients we needed for these crunchy cinnamon ice cream sandwiches (including the Cinnamon Pebbles) at Walmart.
We also grabbed Malt-O-Meals French Toasters and Cookies & Cream. We’ve tried a few of their 33+ varieties of cereal (and used them for edible sensory bins, too) and I love that they have a taste guarantee – Love it or it is free!
