You guys! We can’t believe Summer is almost over. BUT it isn’t over yet, so take the opportunity to make these Ice Cream Sandwiches! They are so much better than store-bought and actually really easy and fun to make!

The Ice Cream:

For these Ice Cream Sandwiches, we are using our favorite ice cream; Acme Valley Ice Cream! It’s ‘full strength ice cream’ meaning there is no air added, unlike most other ice cream brands. And that also means that 1 pint weighs a whole pound! It’s all natural, made with quality, local ingredients.

Without adding air, the ice cream is richer, creamier, and more indulgent, giving it an almost taffy-like pull. For our Chocolate Mint Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches, we are using Acme Valley’s Mint Chip and Dark Chocolate flavors! They have 11 delicious flavors on their website, so be sure to check them out! 🙂

The Chocolate Cookie:

Everybody knows that classic ice cream sandwich with rectangle chocolate cookies and vanilla ice cream sandwiched in the middle that you get from the ice cream truck. These sandwiches are kinda what it’s based off of. It’s a crunchy cookie that snaps and is extra chocolatey. They keep their shape super well when baked, and they are sturdy enough to hold the ice cream. Recipe inspired by Half Baked Harvest.

One tip for when making these is to let the cookies cool completely otherwise when you sandwich the warm cookie, your ice cream will melt all over, and we don’t want that happening! Also, freezing the sandwiches after assembling will ensure the best results!

These Sandwiches are also great to have in the freezer, because you can make a batch, freeze them up to 3 months and then they are ready to enjoy at any time! 🙂

We hope you guys love this recipe, and if you try it, be sure to comment down below, and tag us on our Instagram because we love seeing what you make! -Aubrey and Tara

Ingredients

Units Scale

For Chocolate Cookies:

2 sticks (1 cup), softened

1 and 1/2 cups white sugar

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

2 large eggs, room temp.

2 and 1/2 all-purpose flour

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

The Ice Cream:

3 pints Mint Chip or Dark Chocolate Acme Valley Ice Cream


Instructions

For Chocolate Cookies:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in two eggs and beat to combine.

3. To the creamed mixture add in the dry ingredients: flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat until a thick dough forms.

4. To a floured surface roll the dough out to a 1/4 inch thick. With a 3.75-inch scalloped cookie cutter, cut out 24 cookies.

5. Transfer the cookies to the baking sheets and poke holes into them using a fork. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Once baked, let the cookies cool completely.

6. To a pan lined with plastic wrap, add 3 pints of softened mint chip (or dark chocolate) Acme Valley Ice Cream. Smooth it down, and freeze for 4 hours or until firm.

7. Once the ice cream is frozen, cut out 12 rounds with a 3.25-inch round cookie cutter. (For this part you have to work somewhat fast, or the ice cream will melt.)

8. Now immediately, place an ice cream round on a faced-down cookie, and place another cookie on top, sandwiching it together.

9. Freeze the sandwiches for 2 hours, for the best results so they hold up well. Enjoy!
