What Is An Air Fryer?
An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks food by circulating hot air around it. The device is similar to a convection oven, but the fan within the air fryer circulates the hot air more quickly, which results in faster cooking times. Air fryers are popular among cooks because they produce food that is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Air fryers are often considered healthier than traditional frying methods because they use less oil.
What Are Chipwich?
Chipwich is one of the most popular ice cream sandwiches in the United States. It consists of two chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream. Chipwich was created by Richard LaMotta in 2007 and has become a favorite summer treat. Although you can enjoy it all year round, many people buy Chipwiches during the summer when they visit amusement parks and other tourist destinations. If you’ve never had a Chipwich before, you’re missing out!

Add your toppings into small bowls. Turn a cookie upside-down and put a scoop of ice cream onto it.
Place another cookie on top, right-side-up, pressing gently. Use a knife or icing spatula to even out any ice cream from the sandwich. Roll into the topping of your choice. If it doesn’t stick, use your hand to press the topping onto the ice cream.
Place the finished ice cream sandwich on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Put in the freezer for 10-20 minutes to harden.
Store by wrapping each ice cream sandwich in parchment paper and place in a gallon freezer storage bag. Store ice cream sandwiches for a few weeks.
