Just over 37-feet tall, the Green Monster (correctly pronounced as “Monstah”) is enormous, mighty, and is known throughout baseball as the tallest wall in any Major League park.  Luckily it’s not tall enough to stop Shane Victorino from blasting a grand slam over it!  For those of you who don’t know what I’m referring to… well, it’s that big green wall at in the left field of Fenway Park, which Red Sox fans relatively recently nicknamed the “Green Monster.”
 
Just in time for Spring Training, these Green Monster Ice Cream Sandwiches are a perfect snack for the upcoming season. A double fudge cookie is piled high with mint chocolate chip ice cream and topped with another fudgy cookie. Even if you’re not a Red Sox fan, these cookies are delicious and your friends will all be begging for a piece of these Green Monstah Ice Cream Sandwiches!
