It's the ice-cream dream team – Billy van Creamy meets Butterbing cookies.
Result: the ice-cream sandwich of your dreams.
As featured in Good Food written by Roslyn Grundy
Brothers Mitch and Alex Wells ditched corporate life to teach themselves to make ice-cream, launching a Billy van Creamy ice-cream van in December 2014 and a bricks-and-mortar shop in Fitzroy North exactly a year later.
They've teamed up with baker Simone Clark, whose butter-cream-filled Butterbing brownie cookie sandwiches have a cult following at Melbourne cafes, to create the BillyBing ice-cream sandwich.
"It is a brilliant meeting of soft gooey chocolate brownie cookies and creamy delicious ice-cream," says Clark. "We can't stop eating them ourselves."
Mitch Wells expects salted caramel, vanilla bean, peanut butter, and choc-mint to be the most popular of their scooped-to-order ice-cream flavours.
The $7 BillyBing will make its debut at Flour Market, a seasonal artisan bake sale, on Sunday, November 27 at Collingwood Town Hall from 9am until it sells out.
