Macarons and ice cream are two of our favorite things. Combining them into an ice cream sandwich? Pure heaven. Here are three must-try versions.

The seasonal creations at popular food cart Ricca are sure to strike your fancy. Try the lemon macaron stuffed with goat cheese and blackberry ripple ice cream (plus a schmear of lemon curd) and the Fruity Pebbles, a vanilla confection which showcases the breakfast cereal in both the ice cream and a powdered dusting on top. Check online to locate the mobile shop or place your order ($3.35 for a three-bite itty bitty; $5.50 for a biggy).

No second fiddle in the innovative flavor department, the Rice Village ice cream parlor, Cloud 10 Creamery, flexes its frozen muscles with macaron sandwiches filled with blood orange marshmallow, earl grey and maple butter ice cream ($6 for two). Caution: Getting your hands on one isn't easy. They hit the menu sparingly and sell out quickly. Check Facebook to see when they're available — then run.

Indulge in frozen goodness at Sweet Houston located at CityCentre. Cloud 10 Creamery provides the frozen scoops, but the monster-sized meringue cookie is made in-house. Offerings change daily, but expect flavors like cookies and cream, pistachio, salted caramel and berry raspberry ($8).
