Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich

Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

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!

Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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 

Directions:

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.

Blackberry Ice Cream Float

We all have people in our lives that are known for their signature dishes. Whether it be a delicious chip dip, fruit salad, or dessert – there is an unspoken agreement that they will bring this creation to each family gathering or party.

Blackberry Ice Cream Float

For my father, his signature dessert is a root beer float. We enjoyed them on many hot summer nights as a family, and ogled as my dad created a mini assembly line to produce enough root beer floats to feed guests at our family reunion (there were over 90 people!)

Blackberry Ice Cream Float

While you can’t get much better than a classic root beer float, I was curious about playing around with different flavors. Ian had a few Izzy drinks laying around in the fridge so I opted to try a Blackberry Ice Cream Float! It was a refreshing twist on the classic dessert drink and I think you could have a lot of fun playing around with other flavor comibations!
