{ice cream sandwiches}

Ice cream sandwiches are a classic, and an absolute favorite of mine.  I love to make my own--they are super easy, and oh so yummy!

(Sorry about the melty ice cream-it was frozen solid before I started taking pictures, but it was HOT outside!)

It all starts with Black & White Chippers, a DELICIOUS chocolate cookie with white chocolate chips that I got from my bff Erica. This cookie is thick and rich, with a delightfully gooey center.  They are the perfect complement to the vanilla ice cream, creating a yummy summer treat.

Ice Cream Sandwiches
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Add the salt and vanilla.

3. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa and baking soda and gradually add to the creamed mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

4. Bake for 8 minutes until fluffy but still soft. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

 To make sandwiches:

Soften a carton of vanilla ice cream on your counter until it's easily scoopable but not melted.  Scoop it into a 9x13 baking pan, and smooth it out flat.  Cover with plastic wrap, and place back in the freezer until solid.  
Lay out cookies two by two.  To scoop out the ice cream, I use a biscuit cutter to cut out round pieces of ice cream the size of the cookie.  Heat your cutter in warm water first, or it will stick to the ice cream.  Layer the ice cream between the two cookies.  

Wrap sandwiches individually in plastic wrap, and freeze until ready to serve.

They look so yummy. I would have never thought about putting the ice cream onto a 9 x 13 pan and then re-freezing. Thanks I will definitely have to give these a try.

Thanks for sharing this recipe...just what you need on a hot summer day. I saw another recipe where they used a chocolate cake mix to make the cookies but I think this would be better. I already have vanilla ice cream.

Good to see a childhood favorite of mine. We used to use graham cracker squares and my mom would scoop out some ice cream onto them and ta-da...the best ever ice cream sandwiches to us kids on the farm. Another variation was scoop vanilla onto homemade chocolate chip cookies...simply dee-licious!

Here's an easy tasty brownie version...make a 9x13 pan of brownies in foil so you can lift it out of the pan easily. Cut the whole thing in half and put one half back in the pan. Take your favorite flavor of ice cream and let it soften up a tiny bit. Spread it on the brownie layer and put the other half of the brownie layer on top and pack it down gently. Cut into rectangles and wrap each in plastic wrap. I let them sit out for a few minutes longer so the ice cream soaks into the brownie. Then let them freeze up overnight. When you finally eat one, you'll discover the part where the ice cream soaked in is a delicious fudgie goo. I haven't made these in a long time and probably won't again (that was 24 pounds ago!) but I enjoyed thinking about them as I wrote the instructions!
