Choc Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches are so much fun to eat and to make. This easy recipe will have you eating creamy ice cream before you know it.
I made these Choc Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches this week.
I needed a dessert that could be whipped out on a hot afternoon and not be too showy for a birthday where the recipient (me) didn’t want to have candles and a cake. Ice Cream Sandwiches meet the criteria on a hot summers day and these were so super easy.
I really had no idea what dessert to make and it was 9.30 at night so there is no video of this one. It seems Ice Cream Sandwiches are all pretty popular at the moment because I noticed a lot of recipes popping up in the next few days. Luckily I figured out my own recipe and they really did work out incredibly well.
The Choc Chip Cookie recipe is from All Recipes and they are not only easy stir together ones (no beating just a spoon and a bowl), but they are the perfect softness for an Ice Cream Sandwich. You need a cookie that can be bitten into easily when frozen and this recipe is IT.
These cookies can be made into nice thick soft cookies but I wanted them to be thin and crumbly so spread them out into thin flat circles using the shape of a cutter to guide me. After they were baked and cooled I cut them into perfectly round circles with the same cutter. This isn’t entirely necessary but I just wanted to make mine look neat. Have a look at my pictures and you will see what I mean.
Now making the ice cream could not be easier either. It doesn’t require an ice cream machine. I used a round loaf tube (as pictured)but you could make your ice cream in muffin tins and they would be just as good. Beat some thick cream with a can of condensed milk, add vanilla and you have ice cream.
Now you can make your own.
- 125 gm butter melted
- 180 gm brown sugar 1 cup
- 50 gm caster sugar 1/4 cup
- 1 whole Egg large
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 270 gm plain flour 1 3/4 cups
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 150 gm chocolate dark or milk, chopped
- Ice Cream
- 600 ml cream thickened or whipping cream
- 395 ml condensed milk 1 can -chill this while you make the cookies
- 8 teaspoons nutella
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chilling the condensed milk isn't vital but it does allow the cream to whip up easier and a lot fluffier.
The biscuit mixture will make about 30 average sized cookies
