Fudgy Tofrozen Chipwich

Fudgy Tofrozon Chipwich
As I purchased 2 more half gallons of ice cream, I decided it was time to curb my family's consumption or make a more nutritious frozen treat. No Thank You Boy has an affinity for Tofutti Cuties so I thought making a frozen tofu ice cream sandwich may be an option. Thus, Fudgy Tofrozen Chipwiches were born.

It starts with a jiggly block of tofu

to which sugar, salt, half and half

and vanilla extract are added and whipped up in a food processor.

The tofu mixture is put into a large bowl and a huge container of frozen whipped topping is folded in.

25 Oreos are crushed and folded in.

Freeze in containers for a few hours then enjoy.

Save some of the tofrozen to make Fudgy Tofrozen Chipwiches. I made a batch of Fudgy White Chocolate Chip Cookies and sandwiched a heaping tablespoon between 2 cookies.

My new creation is probably not anymore nutritious than ice cream but, it is tasty.

Oreo Tofrozen

makes about 2 quarts

1 (14-ounce) package reduced fat, firm tofu, drained
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (16 ounce) container frozen, fat-free whipped topping
25 Oreos, crushed

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Place tofu mixture in a large bowl and fold in the whipped topping and crushed Oreos. Put mixture into containers and freezer until firm - about 2 to 3 hours.

To make Fudgy Tofrozen Chipwiches, put a heaping tablespoon of tofrozen between 2 cookies and press gently together. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze.

Fudgy White Chocolate Chip Cookies

makes about 40 cookies

2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugar
1 (3.4 ounces) package instant chocolate fudge pudding
2 extra large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a standing mixer or a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream butter and sugars. Beat in pudding mix until well blended. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Slowly add the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in white chocolate chips.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Bake for about 9 - 11 minutes. Remove from sheets and cool.

dragon - sounds good to me!!

This sounds like a great treat! Another easy one, but it's a little tart, is to take a container of Greek -style nonfat yogurt, mix with 1 cup of sugar and 1 tsp vanilla and throw in an ice cream maker. You can also add in other things - we've had successful experiments with strawberry, blueberry and rum raisin. I don't think it would work so well with chocolate, though.

No ice cream maker? Genuis. I love the spoon fest shot. Wish I could dig in.

Shelby said...

This looks totally delicious!

Mandy said...

homemade cold treats are definitely tastier than the store bought ones. Is there any extra spoon?
