Have a TON of leftover cookies, which are starting to lose their pizzazz?
Don’t fret! There is a way to turn them from drab to fab! Allow me to introduce to you to…
Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches!
Everyone knows the freezer is a great way to “keep” things around a little longer, which is where you will find those store-bought ice cream sandwiches at your local grocer. But really, we all know homemade is always better, so lets get started!
Here’s what you will need:
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Ice Cream
- Tinfoil (for storing)
1) On a strip of tinfoil, lay two cookies (similar in size) upside down:
2) Take a scoop of ice cream (about 1 heaping spoonful) and carefully place it on top of one upside down cookie:
3) Place the other cookie on top of the ice cream and gently press down
If you are like me and have OCD, put them all in a big plastic bag together to keep organized.
Also, when you are ready to eat, let it thaw out a bit (while still wrapped) for a few minutes (4-5 mins) before biting into it. These do not freeze as softly as the store bought ones, but they also don’t have hydrogenated oils & preservatives to magically allow them to be chewy in extremely cold temperatures.
Josh (my food-picky husband), who always begs be to buy the store bought cookie ice cream sandwiches, had one of these today and LOVED it! If that is not an indicator of how good they are, nothing else is!
