  • 18 whole graham crackers
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Food coloring in black, pink, blue, and purple
  • 1 (12 oz) bag purple candy melts
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Sprinkles for decoration


  1. Setup Pan: Start by lining a 9×13-inch baking dish with plastic wrap, allowing some to overhang the sides for easy removal later. Arrange halved graham crackers along the bottom of the dish to form the base of the sandwiches.
  2. Mix Ice Cream Base: In a stand mixer, combine the sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. Pour in the heavy cream and continue to whip until the mixture is fluffy and forms stiff peaks.
  3. Color the Ice Cream: Divide the ice cream base evenly into four separate bowls. Use food coloring to tint each bowl a different color: black, pink, blue, and purple. Drop spoonfuls of each colored ice cream onto the graham cracker base randomly to create a marbled galaxy effect. Gently swirl the colors together with a knife without mixing too much to maintain distinct colors.
  4. Top and Freeze: Cover the colored ice cream with another layer of halved graham crackers. Wrap the dish with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight, until the ice cream is fully set.
  5. Cut and Dip: Once frozen, remove the sandwich slab from the pan using the overhanging plastic wrap. Cut into squares. Melt the purple candy melts with the coconut oil until smooth. Dip each ice cream sandwich halfway into the melted candy, then immediately into sprinkles for a festive galaxy effect.
  6. Final Freeze: Place the dipped sandwiches back into the freezer to set the candy coating before serving.

  • Vivid Colors: Adjust the intensity of the food coloring to achieve a more vivid galaxy effect. The brighter and more varied the colors, the more striking the sandwiches will appear.
  • Variations: Feel free to experiment with different colors of candy melts or types of chocolate for dipping to customize the look of your galaxy-themed dessert.
