I Scream Sandwitches

Making "sandwitches" is easy -- just use dark-and-dreary (chocolate) cookies and gruesome green (mint) ice cream. Then eat quickly. Wicked witches have a habit of melting -- these ones, especially.

Ingredients

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • Mini candy-coated chocolates, for hats
  • Green mint-chocolate-chip ice cream

Cook's Note

For neat rounds of ice cream, snip away the carton with scissors, cut ice cream into 3/4-inch-thick slices, and make shapes with a 2 1/2-inch cookie cutter. Freeze leftovers in an airtight container.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put egg whites and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix 30 seconds. Mix in flour, cocoa, and salt. Mix in butter, cream, and vanilla; mix 30 seconds.

  2. Step 2

    Bake cookies: Using plastic lids or heavy card stock, cut out 1 circle (2 3/4 inches in diameter) and 1 half circle (4 1/2 inches long). Using the outlines as stencils, spread dough on a Silpat baking mat with an offset spatula to make 4 circles and 2 half circles. Transfer mat to a baking sheet; bake cookies until starting to set, 6 to 7 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Shape cones: Remove half circles with an offset spatula while still hot. With straight sides of cookies facing up, quickly bring edges together to form cones, holding until set. Repeat three more times with remaining dough.

  4. Step 4

    Make sandwitches: Dip cones in melted chocolate to coat 1/4 inch of rims. Place cones on 8 whole cookies; press 1 candy onto band of each hat. Freeze until set, 10 to 20 minutes. Brush remaining 8 whole cookies on one side with melted chocolate. Freeze until set, 10 to 20 minutes. Cut ice cream using technique described above. Place on coated cookies; top with hats.

    I agree with the chocolate cone from the store, but dipping the rim in chocolate has a two-fold purpose: it cements the cone to the brim, and holds the candy "buckle" on the hat. Can't wait to make these with my granddaughter!

    You could probably even skip the dipping in chocolate by using the Oreo sugar cones and they are super yummy!

    I was thinking the same thing. I wouldn't mind making the chocolate cookies but I will definitely use store bought chocolate cones for the hats.

    Couldn't you get the same look with a whole lot less effort by just using store bought ice cream sandwiches with store bought sugar cones dipped in chocolate?

    As cute and tasty as these look. . .it seems like an awful lot to go through for just 8 sandwitches. This would definitely have to be done for a "special" Ghostly Gathering!!
