Healthy S'more Ice Cream Sandwiches

For the past 10 weeks, I have been training for a half marathon.  I decided to simply map out my own half marathon and complete that as my first "race."  There weren't any races around the time that I could do one that were convenient for me to run in, but I still really wanted to work towards this all summer.

This past week, I ran 2 4 mile runs, a 4.75 run, a 3.5 run and then on Sunday, I ran the whole big race: 13.1 miles.

I feel so good for being diligent about this and completing the training.  Running helps me feel great and I love how strong and confident I feel when I am running.

Plus, running means I get to eat all the yummy things I make!

After my run, I spent a ton of time baking because I just was happy and wanted to.  I can't wait to share some of the recipes I tried, but first I have a simple, but amazing treat that is also healthy!

For the Daring Bakers' Challenge this month, I made Homemade Whole Wheat Graham Crackers.  Then, today I made healthy ice cream sandwiches with those crackers!!!

Healthy S'more Ice Cream Sandwiches
makes 5 sandwiches
10 graham crackers
16 oz light whipped topping
2 Hershey Bars

1. Place 5 crackers on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
2. Spread whipped topping on each cracker and then top with the other crackers to create the sandwich.

3. Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for about 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds.  Dip the sandwiches or drizzle chocolate over the sandwiches.  Place in freezer for at least 2 hours.
Enjoy :)

These taste just like ice cream sandwiches and then the graham cracker plus chocolate combination is just amazing!!!
