About The Recipe

Ice cream sandwiches? In September? I know, I hear you. While almost everyone has moved on to Fall bakes (we’re getting there, promise), we decided to celebrate the last little bit of summer with these delicious Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies!

Well, that and…these are my birthday treat!

Yep, tomorrow is my 22nd birthday and, instead of a cake this year, I opted for one of my favorite childhood treats!

My mom used to make ice cream sandwiches every summer when I was growing up. It was something we always kept in the freezer. They were so special and it’s been FOREVER since the last time I had one! So, I asked my mom to make me some.

The recipe turned out so well that we just had to share it with all of you! These chocolate chip cookies might just be our best chocolate chip cookie recipe to date. They’re so simple and SO good. Plus, when they freeze, they are still soft enough to bite into!

Then, with creamy vanilla ice cream sandwiched between it? Oh. My. Gosh.

Variations

Looking for something a little different? Here are a few ways to change up this classic treat!

  • Use Funfetti Cookies instead of chocolate chip.
  • You can use almost any type of ice cream that will go well with chocolate chip cookies. I personally love using chocolate ice cream or coffee ice cream! For a boozy treat for adults, try using Irish Cream Ice Cream!
  • The sandwiches can be rolled in chocolate sprinkles, rainbow sprinkles, peanuts, or even chopped up candy bars.

How To Store Ice Cream Sandwiches

The most important thing is to keep them in the freezer! Once they’re assembled and set, these ice cream sandwiches can be stored in a freezer safe zip top bag and kept in the freezer for about 2-3 months.

Expert Tips

  • Do not over-mix the cookie dough!
  • Depending on how your oven bakes, if baking multiple pans at a time, be sure to check on the cookies at about 10 minutes into the bake time.
  • To achieve a perfectly round cookie, take a large round biscuit cutter and place around your cookie while it’s still hot. Move the cutter in a circular motion around the cookie to help re-shape it.
  • Don’t forget to line your sheet pans.
  • Be careful when assembling the ice cream sandwich! If you press too hard, you might break the top or bottom cookie.
  • Work quickly as the ice cream melts fast!
  • Keep the cookies on parchment paper when you freeze them.
  • If your ice cream is getting too soft/melting, freeze the ice cream sandwiches before rolling in chocolate chips.
  • Freeze times may vary. Anywhere from 1-3 hours.
