Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. 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!

I don’t love crunchy candy in my cookies, but the kids love the Smarties in them!
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!
These would make a great dessert for a July 1st or July 4th backyard party! For a party, you could even let your guests decorate the ice cream sandwiches themselves!

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 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 for decorating or what ever candy you like
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugars.
Add eggs one at a time. Mix.
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 1/3 cup ice cream between 2 cookies.
Decorate edges with Smarties (or what ever candy you like)
