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.
I loved Chipwiches when I was a kid. With two desserts in one, the Good Humor ice cream sandwich was unquestionably one of my favorites. Now as an adult I realize how easy it is to make your own cookie ice cream sandwich and it’s ten times better. I’ll tell you why.
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?
