My Sister’s Amazing Cookie Sandwich Recipe (You’ll Be Eating One Each Day)

Take a nice long look at that photo. How good does that chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich look? Best of all, it is so easy to make. The homemade Chipwich is creamy vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies and loaded with mini chocolate chips.

My sister is definitely the sweet tooth of the family though. So when she finally brought these amazing chocolate chip treats over on a hot weekend for me and the kids I had to find out her recipe! So after plenty of begging and pleading she finally handed it over.

Now that I’ve mastered the recipe, I have to admit that I find myself sneaking one every night. I can’t help it because they’re just so yummy! But I try to stay good and just drink it with a tall glass of water instead of going off the cliff with a cup of delicious whole milk… Oh man, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

Me and my sister at the latest family gathering 🙂

The secret to a delicious homemade cookie ice cream sandwich? Using the best chocolate chip cookie recipe, of course. Nothing beats a good chocolate chip cookie. So when you sandwich two together with ice cream, you are most certainly in for a treat.

A key step in making these homemade Chipwiches is freezing the cookies after they’re done cooling. You’d think all you have to do is sandwich ice cream between freshly-baked cookies, but that’s not the case. (Although, I do recommend setting a cookie or two aside to snack on while the rest of them sit in the freezer.)

Freezing the cookies makes them sturdier and hardens the melted chocolate chips. You need stiff cookies in order to sandwich the ice cream in between otherwise you’ll have a crumbly cookie mess. Don’t worry though, the chilled cookies will maintain their deliciousness!

One more secret to a perfect cookie ice cream sandwich: Good quality vanilla ice cream. I’m talking slow-churned vanilla from your local ice cream shop. After all, if you’re going to make a homemade Chipwich, you might as well hit it out of the ball park, right?

I suggest wrapping them individually so they are easy to grab on a hot summer’s night. Enjoy!

Instructions

Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat on medium speed the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about four minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl when necessary. Add the egg and vanilla. Beat until combined, 20 to 30 seconds.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture to the dough. Careful not to over beat. With a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  5. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of cookie dough, shape into a ball, and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat placing each ball of cookie dough about 1- to 2-inches apart. Bake for about 12 minutes or until the edges start to turn brown. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Transfer to the freezer for 20-30 minutes.

Ice Cream Sandwich Assembly

  1. Take one cookie and place a scoop of ice cream (about 1/4 cup) on the flat side of the cookie. Top with flat side of second cookie to make a sandwich.
  2. Place mini chocolate chips in a bowl or on plate. Roll sides of the sandwich in the chips. Serve immediately or wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze.

Recipe Notes

*Transferring the chocolate chip cookies to the freezer is essential. If you try to make the sandwiches with warm or room temperature cookies, the cookies will break when you press the ice cream between them. You will also get chocolate chips all over your hands!
