Is there anything better than an ice cream sandwich on a hot summer’s day?! After an afternoon swimming in the pool, being able to indulge in an ice cream sandwich was a special treat growing up. Therefore, it’s not a surprise they have a special place in my heart!
I felt like taking a stroll down memory lane this week and try my hand at making homemade chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches! It was a struggle not to eat the cookie dough right out of the bowl, but I reminded myself the end result would be worth the wait!
Once the cookies were cooled it was time to assemble the ice cream sandwiches! I was anticipating this to be a messy endeavor, but was surprised how smoothly it went. Just remember you have to work quickly or the ice cream will begin to melt, so I would recommend placing each sandwich in the freezer as you complete them. Then, once you have all your sandwiches made, sit back, relax and savor the sweet taste of childhood.
- 1 C. butter, room tempterature
- 1/2 C. sugar
- 1 C. brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2.5 C. flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 bag dark chocolate chips
- 48 oz vanilla ice cream
Beat together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Slowly add in the flour, salt and baking soda until well combined. Add chocolate chips and stir together. Use a cookie scoop to drop dough onto baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Let the cookies cool before sandwiching one scoop of vanilla ice cream between two cookies. Place in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.
