Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Soft and chewy chocolate cookies with vanilla ice cream sandwiched in between. A wonderful homemade summer treat!


  • ¾ cup unsalted butter , at room temperature (170 grams)
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar (300 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 grams)
  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder (60 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 half gallon of vanilla ice cream
  • Rainbow sprinkles , optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar on medium high speed until light and creamy, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Add the vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the mixer and mix until just combined.
  • Scoop by the rounded tablespoon onto the prepared sheet pan.
  • Bake until edges are crisp, about 9 minutes. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  • Let vanilla ice cream sit at room temperature 10-15 minutes to soften. Place a large scoop of ice cream on 1 cookie. Top with another cookie and gently press together. Roll in sprinkles, if using.
  • Freeze until ready to serve or serve immediately. Ice cream sandwiches will keep in the fridge for a few days (see Note).


  • If storing in the freezer for longer than one day, I recommend wrapping each sandwich in plastic wrap to prevent freezer burn.
