Strawberry-Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches

  • prep: 30 mins
    total time: 2 hours 30 mins
  • servings: 6




  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 pint strawberry ice cream, slightly softened


  1. Step 1

    Make cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light. Add egg and vanilla; beat until incorporated. Reduce speed to low, and gradually mix in flour mixture (dough will be soft). Mix in chocolate chips by hand.

  3. Step 3

    Drop mounds of dough (each equal to 2 level tablespoons) onto baking sheets, spacing as far apart as possible. With fingers, make mounds as round as possible (you should have 14 to 15).

  4. Step 4

    Bake, switching baking sheets from top to bottom halfway through, until edges of cookies are firm but not hard, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets; transfer cookies to racks to cool completely.

  5. Step 5

    Assemble sandwiches: Scoop 1/3 cup ice cream onto flat side of each of 6 cookies. Top each with another cookie, and press gently to form a sandwich (you have extra cookies, in case of breakage).

  6. Step 6

    Freeze sandwiches until firm, at least 1 to 2 hours, before serving (or up to a week, wrapped individually in plastic wrap).

    it helps if you press them down a bit before they bake, mine came out flat. I also made mine smaller (i got 24 cookies from this recipe - used a regular sized kitchen spoon for the measuring).

    Mine came out chunky. How do I make them flat?

    Did yours turn out thin? Mine came out chunky. Sorry if this post is a duplicate. For some reason, my last post disappeared.

    I think I might try the cookies only without the chips to reduce calories. I was looking for a good chocolate cokie recipe and this looks great. I can always use lowfat icecream too, like mint chocolate chip!
