When I first developed this chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich recipe (way back in 2013), it was a quick, go-to summer snack made with store-bought ingredients only. Since then, I’ve come up with some great cookie and ice cream recipes that you can absolutely use to create fun and tasty ice cream sandwiches including my Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe and Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream! The beauty of this recipe is that you can make it completely homemade, semi-homemade, or all from store-bought ingredients and still get amazing results! So let’s get started!

Main Ingredients Needed

You only need three main components to make these Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches!

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies – I used my chocolate chip cookie recipe. But feel free to use whatever cookie recipe you’d like or go out and buy some cookies.
  • Vanilla Ice Cream – I used Breyer’s vanilla bean ice cream, but you don’t have to make this recipe with just vanilla ice cream. Use what you have! Or make it homemade with my Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe.
  • Sprinkles or Mini Chocolate Chips – these are optional but create a fun activity for kids and can be made festive for holidays!

Tips + Tricks

Using Homemade Cookies?

Freeze after baking for 20-30 minutes. This ensures that the cookies don’t break or tear apart when squishing down on the ice cream.

Ice Cream Too Hard?

No worries, just let it sit out to soften a bit, then refreeze!

1. Make/Buy the Cookies + Ice Cream

Start out by making or buying cookies and/or ice cream!

Like I said above, this recipe is really only going to take up as much time as you want it to take up. Go all out and make it all homemade or take it easy and make it semi-homemade or all store-bought. Either way, you’re going to have a great end product.

2. Assemble

Using a cookie scoop, scoop ice cream balls onto one chocolate chip cookie, topping with a second one. Press down slightly. Repeat with as many as you’d like.

3. Freeze

Freeze 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and roll edges in sprinkles or mini chocolate chips (optional). Freeze until you’re ready to serve.

How to Store Ice Cream Sandwiches

After the cookie ice cream sandwiches have been assembled and frozen you can either individually wrap each one in plastic wrap or place them in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag. These will last in the freezer for about a month, which makes them a perfect make-ahead treat!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Stir melted butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until well combined. Add in egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Mix until lighter in color. Add in the flour, baking soda and salt. Scrape the sides of the bowl and the bottom really well to ensure a smooth, well stirred batter. Hand stir the chocolate chips into the batter and let it sit 20 minutes to let the flour soak into the rest of the batter.
  • Preheat oven to 325. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and scoop cookie dough onto prepared pans, using a two tablespoon cookie scoop. Bake 8-9 minutes, rotating sheets half way through baking. When you pull your cookies out of the oven, they will looked cooked around the edges and undercooked in the center. Leave the cookies on the hot baking pans for 5-7 minutes or until you can remove them without falling apart. Place onto cooling racks and cool to room temperature. You should get 36 cookies total.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop ice cream balls onto one chocolate chip cookie, topping with a second one. Press down slightly. Continue filling sandwiches with ice cream until all 18 sandwiches are created.
  • Freeze 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and roll edges in sprinkles or mini chocolate chips (optional). Freeze until you're ready to serve.

    I am so glad that I am not the only one that loves obsessing over show series on Netflix. I love getting caught up in a show and watching the entire season. I loved Weeds and 24. I never watched Friday Night Lights, but I may have to start. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.

    I would need a bucket of these after five hours of shopping, no doubt!! And I am trying to steer clear of FNL until I can get through my laundry list of Doctor Who and Dr. Quinn for the foreseeable future. Oy vie!!

    So wait . . . Can you make these ahead of time and freeze them for later?

    Just kidding . . . ๐Ÿ™‚

    When you’re done with Friday Night Lights, hop on the Mad Men train. You’d love it.

    I LOOOOVVVVVEEEE the Friday Night Lights series!! Actually went so far as to buy a Panthers ’33’ t shirt that I wear with pj pants around the house!! Love me some Tim Riggins….

    These are seriously too cute!

    We are going through How I Met Your Mother on Netflix and just discussed the other day how after we’re done, Friday Night Lights is next! ๐Ÿ™‚

    But, seriously, if you haven’t watch HIMYM, you MUST make that your next series. It’s HILARIOUS.
