Break out these sweet treats at the pool for your kiddos and watch them do the happy dance. Grown men are also known to act giddy when handed these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. This dessert is so good you may not make it to the pool to deliver these sweet treats because you’ll eat them all first. Take it from me, the food blogger who ate three warm cookies before even pulling the ice cream from the freezer, you’ll thank me for this recipe later.
Admittedly the cookie recipe isn’t my own. I couldn’t resist smashing scrumptious ice cream in between two warm cookies and rolling them in candied sprinkles on a hot summer day. The combinations of flavors are endless. Today, I’m sandwiching cookies around Private Selection’s Carmel Hazelnut Fudge Truffle with chocolate sprinkles and another one with Double Vanilla.
Until next time ice cream truck man. I’m happy with this homemade sweet treat and you will be too! These sandwiches are served best after they sit in the freezer for at least a couple of hours to harden.
