Homemade Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

Get ready to savor the rich combination of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies paired with creamy vanilla ice cream. These homemade sandwiches are perfect for a summer treat or a dessert indulgence.


For the Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • 1 ¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

For the Ice Cream Sandwich Assembly:

  • Freshly baked chocolate chip cookies
  • ½ gallon vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


1. Baking the Cookies:

  • Preheat your oven to 350° F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Using a stand mixer equipped with a paddle attachment, cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar on medium speed until smooth. This should take around 4 minutes. Make sure to scrape the bowl’s sides if needed. Incorporate the egg and vanilla extract and mix for another 20-30 seconds.
  • Gradually blend in the sifted dry ingredients, ensuring not to overmix. Stir in the mini chocolate chips manually using a spatula.
  • Portion the dough using a scoop, approximating 2 tablespoons for each. Shape into balls, place them on the baking sheet, and slightly flatten each with your palm. Ensure a gap of 1-2 inches between each cookie.
  • Bake for roughly 12 minutes or until the cookies’ edges become golden brown. Let them cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Once cooled, move the cookies to the freezer for 20-30 minutes.

2. Assembling the Ice Cream Sandwiches:

  • Lay one cookie flat-side up and position approximately 1/4 cup of vanilla ice cream on top. Press another cookie, flat side down, onto the ice cream, forming a sandwich.
  • Pour the mini chocolate chips into a bowl. Roll the edges of the sandwich in the chips for added texture and taste.
  • You can enjoy the ice cream sandwich immediately or store it in the freezer. If storing, ensure each sandwich is tightly wrapped in plastic wrap.

Pro Tip: It’s crucial to freeze the cookies before assembling the sandwiches. Room temperature or warm cookies may crumble when pressed with ice cream. Also, by having chilled cookies, you prevent a chocolaty mess on your hands!

Happy munching on this delightful concoction of cookies and ice cream!
