Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Prep Time:
30 mins
Total Time:
6 hrs

The chocolate chip dough is used twice here: in the cookies, which are layered with ganache, and in the ice cream filling.


  • ½ cup Chocolate Chip Cookie Base (refrigerated) plus 16 cookies (2 ¼ inches in diameter)

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (¾ cups)


  1. Break cookie dough into chunks; stir into ice cream. Freeze until firm, about 3 1/2 hours.

  2. Bring cream to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Pour over chocolate in a bowl. Let stand for 1 minute. Whisk until smooth. Let stand, whisking often, until thick and spreadable, about 25 minutes.

  3. Spread 2 teaspoons ganache onto 8 cookies. Scoop 1/4 cup ice cream onto remaining cookies. Sandwich cookies together. Freeze on a baking sheet for 30 minutes.
