Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

chocolate and vanilla ice cream sandwiches

 I had a good time with the two-tone milkshakes that I made last week and decided to use the same effect to make these ice cream sandwiches. And by this, I mean that I made them with half vanilla filling and half chocolate.

Ice cream sandwiches are really simple to make because you don’t have to actually make anything in order to make them. You can buy all the ingredients you need. Of course, there are some things that you should keep in mind if you’re doing this. Here are a couple of tips:

First, choose with a soft or chewy cookie so that it doesn’t crack and crumble all over the place while you’re eating it. Second, get the best and most strongly flavored ice cream you can find, since you’re only using a small amount and want the flavor to come through. Third, chocolate chip cookies pair very well with vanilla ice cream, the standard filling for a sandwich.

The technique involved in putting the sandwiches together is quite simple. You need to take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften until it is easy to handle with a spoon. Once it is sandwiched between two cookies, wrap the whole thing in a small piece of plastic wrap and freeze until solid. With individually wrapped cookies, you’ll never have a problem grabbing one for a snack, and doing them one at a time allows you to get each sandwich into the freezer without worrying about the filling melting too much.

The amount of each ingredient you’ll need depends on how many cookie sandwiches you’re going to make, so you’ll have to judge exactly how much you need of each ingredient. Remember: if you make too many, they can be frozen for later snacking!

To make these ice cream sandwiches, soften the ice creams on the countertop, spread each half of one cookie generously with ice cream until it’s about 1-inch thick, and top with another cookie.
Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
To serve, simply unwrap and plate. The sandwiches will soften in just a few minutes, though you can certainly consume while they’re straight from the freezer if your teeth can handle the cold.

*Note:You can use other cookies if you want to mix things up. Oatmeal raisin would be good, as would the very chocolaty amazing chocolate cake cookies, salty oat cookies or white chocolate cookies.

    I love the two-tone ice cream idea! I’ve only made ice cream sandwiches once, and I don’t know if maybe it was just me (or the heat or the cookies or the ice cream or what), but when I pulled the assebled sandwiches out of the freezer, I’d found that the ice cream had become so soft that they had turned to mushy messes before hardening back up. I attributed this to the ice cream getting too warm from the cookies (which were summer room temp), so after that I froze the cookies first. Problem solved!
