Now that’s a mouthful of yum-yumminess!
A few years ago when my daughter turned 5, I made these ice cream sandwiches instead of cake.
And they were a hit!
Not only are they pretty, but they are so, so delicious!
These would make a great dessert for a July 1st or July 4th backyard party!

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies!
|I don’t love crunchy candy in my cookies, but the kids love the Smarties in them!
In my opinion, these are best with just the chocolate chips…
Not only do they make great ice cream sandwiches, but they are also great just as a cookie!
This is what I am sending with Mini-Suburb #2, to the bake sale tomorrow!
You may remember from a previous post on my bake sale botch,
I had to step it up a notch this time around! Hopefully these do the trick!
Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
Serves: Makes 4 dozen cookies.
- 2 cups flour
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- Smarties (or what ever candy you like) for decorating
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream together butter and sugars.
- Add eggs one at a time. Mix.
- Add vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda.
- Add flour mix to sugar mix, and combine.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- For regular cookies, drop 1 heaping tbsp of batter onto cookie sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes.
- For larger cookies for ice-cream sandwiches, drop a heaping 2 tbsp mound of batter onto the cookie sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes. Watch carefully. They are best when still a bit soft and chewy.
For Ice Cream Sandwiches:
- Cool cookies completely.
- You can assemble your ice cream sandwiches about 2-3 days ahead of time.
- Scoop about ⅓ cup ice cream between 2 cookies.
- Decorate edges with Smarties (or what ever candy you like)
NOTE: For a party, you could even let your guests decorate the ice cream sandwiches themselves!
Have fun with them!
