Question Suggestion: frozen dessert for picnic

I need to bring a dessert for a picnic next weekend. I prefer
to bring something frozen cold (as to cool off). I use wheelchair
and do NOT use the stove - just microwave and toaster oven.
Can you people suggest anything that is easy to make -
something like ice cream, Italian ice, frozen treats, etc.
I prefer something that won't kill my budget (bringing 3
buckets of ice cream is too pricey).

Thanks!

Frozen snickers or other candy bar?? No cooking involved at all and if they melt a little they are still good.

Ice cream cake? Home made popsicles?

Sheng my suggestion would be to buy cookies, or better yet get the cookies dough and bake, then fill them with vanilla icecream... Your homemade icecream cookie sandwiches, and it won't break the bank...

I'm bring for 4-8 people. Baking is "off-limit" for me.

I'll take a look at frozen snicker bars.

google "ice cream sandwich cake" recipes (web and images) It is just an assembly type of dessert, no baking. Take a small springform pan (just not a really big one) and one cuts the ice cream sandwiches and wet them up on the edges of the pan. fill with some ice dream and put whipped cream on top. refreeze.
