The recipe I used is one of the absolute BEST chocolate cookie recipes. They are soft in the center, firm and crispy around the edges. I made the cookies larger to accommodate the ice cream.
You can find the recipe here: Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies
I filled each cookie with a scoop of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream then topped it off with another cookie pressing down to distribute the filling.
Then I rolled the edges in mini chocolate chips, wrapped each in waxed paper and placed them in the freezer immediately.
WOW! What a delight! And the cookie paired so well with the ice cream.
Try making your own ice cream sandwich cookies using your favorite ice cream. You could roll the edges in sprinkles, peanuts or coconut. Go crazy!
