  1. Open your bag of Chedz and pair as many Chedz sticks as you would like to make.

  2. Smear ice cream on the flat side of the Chedz sticks (not bumpy side) and stack the other one on top like a sandwich. Repeat with remaining sticks.

  4. Put in the freezer until ice cream and chocolate drizzle has set up (15-30 minutes). Enjoy your creation!
