Um, hi! So I am more than ready for these Salted Pretzel Nutella Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches.

You with me or what?

Because it’s finally ice cream time and my excitement is through the roof. Like, let’s do this Memorial Day thing and do it right! ?

Also, after spending Wednesday in NYC (more on that little adventure next week!) and feeling the sunshine and 89 degree temperatures on my skin, I’m feeling like we could all just use some ice cream already! Even if it may still be a little chilly where you are. Um…it snowed here last night…what?!?!? BUT… the weekend is supposed to be sunny with temps in the low 60’s. Either way, ice cream is always a welcomed treat for me, especially over Memorial Day weekend.

Double also, Asher gets out of school for the summer in exactly ONE week. Whoa. For some reason this just snuck up on me. I mean, I knew it was coming up, but man, it really is almost summertime!

Since I am quite obviously so excited, I have to ask YOU… what are you guys most excited to do (or maybe not to do) in the upcoming summer months?

What’s on your agenda? Any fun trips planned? Need to get caught up on work? 🙁 Any plans on growing a garden? How about getting in as much chill time as possible? Or maybe just eating boatloads of ice cream?!? Most of those sound awesome to me!

I need to finish up the cookbook in the first half of the summer, but I’ll also have some fun things going on behind the scenes here as well. Taking Asher to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is also a must. Of course I would love to just chill in a chair in the hot sun by a pool, but I highly doubt time will permit another trip. And outdoor pools are pretty much non-existent up here in the mountains. Hopefully we’ll catch some warm and sunny weather on our trip to Harry Potter la la land, which yes, I am beyond excited about. I’m thinking that trip probably won’t happen till mid July or later though, since I really HAVE to finish up the cookbook!

Anyway, I seriously want to know what you guys are up to. I love to hear about summer adventures and potential plans for tropical chill!

OKok. Let’s talk about these Salted Pretzel Nutella Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches (whew!).

Do they sound awesome or what?!? When the flavors popped into my head and I sent them over in a text message to my mom, I knew right away this was my Memorial Day ice cream sandwich. You just cannot beat the flavors of salty and sweet….and basically anything paired with a chocolate chip cookie is going to be delish!

So I took that concept and I made ice cream sandwich. YESSS.

Here’s how they go…

…salty, buttery, chocolate chip pretzel cookies.

…thick layer of Nutella, and I do mean THICK.

…giant scoop of chocolate fudge ice cream, or maybe chocolate brownie ice cream, or maybe cookie dough ice cream? The options are endless here.

…another cookie, with another layer of Nutella..obviously.


Simple, perfect and basically the best thing you’ll consume this Memorial Day weekend.


Best part about these sandwiches? Or maybe the most dangerous part? You can have them in your hands and ready for eating in just about thirty to forty minutes. Honestly, we really should get up and make these RIGHT now and just call it a four-day weekend.

I am so down with that! Yes, let’s do that! You guys want to make these over on Snapchat today?!? I feel like this would be a REALLY fun thing to make today… yes, Ice Cream Sandwich Friday!

Ok, that’s it, I’m sold, let’s make them. Sometime today, probably this afternoon, I will be making these with you guys on Snapchat. Just follow @hbharvest and prepare for some serious chocolate…and a lot of me embarrassing myself. 🙂

So see you there?!?!

    It’s shaping up to be a memorable summer…

    1. Thank you thank you!!

  2. I will be spending my summer at the Jersey shore! Hopefully some days at the beach relaxing, but more than likely, cooking just like you Tieghan! My house will be full of guests all summer long, as usual! It’s such fun! And with recipes like this one for these incredibly delicious looking ice cream sandwiches I surely will not be in a bathing suit any time soon. Thank you missy! Good luck with your cookbook and I hope you and little Miss Asher have a fabulous trip together! What a great big sister you are! Can’t wait for the cookbook!

    1. BEACH DAYS!! That sounds soo good! The more people the better! This sounds so nice!! Thanks A ton Mary Ann! (:

  3. Snapchating these cookie ice cream sandwiches sounds great! Love watching your snapchats Tieghan; you make recipes you are just yourself and there’s no stress for perfection.
    This summer I’m working at the YMCA as a counselor for summer day camp. Excited but it will also be crazy with all the kiddos! Haha I’m gong to NY too in about 2 weeks, but I haven’t been before so lol I’m sure I will do all the touristy stuff ;)))

    1. Thanks Kristen! So happy you like the snapchats!! It’s hard to tell of anyone likes them at all sometimes! SO this is very reassuring!! Camp counseling sounds so so fun!! I hope you love NY!! It was so fun for me!

  4. PUH-LEASE cover me in chocolate honey–but make sure I don’t eat myself to death haha! I don’t know how any chocoholic is going to last while making this recipe, and let alone not eat them all!

  5. These look sinful, I’ve never had an ice-cream cookie sandwich. They’re not really a ‘thing’ in the UK.

    I really could do some damage to a stack of these though!

    1. You will be amazed, ice cream cookies are delicious! If you get a chance to try them I hope they are everything and more!! Thanks Angela!

  6. Teighan…..I just need to know how these are balancing without falling!! They look absolutely scrumptious and I love the mix of salt and sweet in this recipe. HUGE WINNER! xo

    1. haha! Oddly and magically they just stood like that, nothing fancy is behind them! LOL!

      Thanks Debi!

  7. I think I just fell in love. Salty/sweet chocolatey goodness? COUNT ME IN.

  8. Oh wow these look amazing Tieghan! I don’t know how you do it and create all these amazing recipes and images on a daily bases! You put us other little food bloggers to shame… 😀

  9. Another incredible creation to make me drool Tieghan! I can’t get over these! Like, there are no words!!!!

  10. Get in my belly!!! We are heading into winter now but in 2 weeks we are flying to Houston all the way from New Zealand to explore the Southern States on our honeymoon…YAY! So for 3 weeks I will be drinking loads of margaritas and eating all the ice cream before we head home for winter! Also you will LOVE Harry Potter World…I went to the one in London a couple of years ago and it was awesome!

  11. My plans this summer are to up my running scheduled and increase the Kms everyday, go camping by the beach and definitely eat a lot of ice cream too.

    1. Camping on the beach eating these sounds awesome!! We went camping in the Virgin Islands, St. John specifically and it was one of the best things we ever did. We camped right on the beach and couldn’t have afforded it any other way!!!

  12. Salty and sweet – YES!!! I am looking forward to your snapchat video 🙂
    Our summer will mostly (hopefully) be spent gardening – we bought a new and much bigger garden last year that we’re slowly turning into an edible paradise – I am so looking forward to all the summer veggies and fruits that are coming soon!
    Good luck with finishing your book and I hope you’ll have some time to relax as well!

    1. Thanks! The snapchat video is up now, so check it out!! Having your own garden sounds so cool and refreshing, I hope it turns out great!! Thanks Vera (:
