Easy Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches
Cookie Dough (or your favorite homemade cookie batter) – We just used Toll House cookie dough.
Ice Cream – We used vanilla
M&M’s or other topping of your choice: mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, etc.
Freezer bag – if you plan to save any for later/have the will power to resist eating them all.
Small bowl or dish to use as ice cream mold
Ice cream scoop
- Bake your cookies and let cool completely. You will want your cookies on the softer side!
- Place the freezer paper in your ice cream mold dish, scoop the ice cream in the dish, and push down to flatten.
- Using the freezer paper, remove the ice cream mold from the dish, and place upside down onto bottom of the cookie. Remove the freezer paper.
- Place the other cookie on top and roll in M&M’s or other topping. Note: If your ice cream is starting to get too soft, you will want to freeze the cookie sandwiches for a few minutes, before trying to roll in your toppings.
So so so yummy!!!!
We made our cookies a little bigger than we wanted, so we ended up splitting a cookie sandwich and saving one for later. The one we saved in the freezer was actually better! The cookie had softened even more and was easier to eat like a sandwich. So tasty!
It was exactly what you would imagine a homemade ice cream cookie sandwich to be. Delicious.
