Equipment

  • Ice cream scoop
  • 8x8 or 7x11 baking pan (optional)
  • parchment paper
  • Plastic wrap
  • Round Cookie/Biscuit cutter

Ingredients

  • 24 chocolate chip cookies (Or use any of your favorite cookies)
  • 12 scoops of vanilla ice cream - storebought or homemade
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Nuts

Instructions

  • Bake your favorite cookies and let them cool completely on a wire rack. Then put them in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Method 1

  • Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften for about 10 minutes. Remove the cookies from the freezer. Take a cookie and flip it over, then place a scoop of ice cream on top. Take another cookie and place it on top of the ice cream and press down.
  • Then optionally you can take the ice cream sandwich and roll it in some nuts or mini chocolate chips.
    Next, take some plastic wrap and wrap them up and put them back in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour or more.

Method 2

  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper, then add softened ice cream to it, and spread it out evenly. Then place another sheet of parchment paper on top. Put it back in the freezer for a few hours to harden up again.
    If using this method, do this before baking the cookies.
  • Take that ice cream slab out of the freezer, the ice cream should be very firm. Remove the top layer of parchment paper. Then take a biscuit cutter that is roughly the same size as your cookie, and cut out a round bit of ice cream from the block.
    Place it on the cookie, and push the ice cream out of the cutter with the back of a spoon or clean fingers. Place another cookie on top.
    This method takes more time, but the results are nicer in my opinion.
  • Again, roll them in chocolate chips or nuts. If they are having a hard time sticking, you may need to just place them with your fingers. Use clean hands or wear gloves! Then just wrap it up and freeze.
    Technically you can eat them right away, but if the ice cream is too soft, it will squish out when you bit into it, haha. Better to freeze it completely and eat it frozen. :)

Eat them!

  • When you are ready to serve them, take them out of the freezer and each person can unwrap their own, and eat them. Have fun creating your own combinations with different cookies and ice cream. Enjoy!
