Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich

This week Miss Yunks celebrated her BF’s birthday. He always claims he does not have a sweet tooth and staying true to his word, he resisted when I offered to bake a birthday cake. I couldn’t not bake anything for his birthday so I kept it simple and combined desserts he loves. Chocolate chip cookies and ice cream are the exception to BF’s anti-sweet tooth. Cookies and ice cream are reliable desserts he always enjoys, so I made ice cream sandwiches with chocolate chip cookies. We were both having busy work weeks so I prepared his birthday dessert a day in advance. When he got home from work, there were pre-wrapped ice cream sandwiches waiting in the freezer.

I used a small spoon to scrape a layer of mint chocolate chip slow churned ice cream out of the tub and smear it on a cookie. I put another cookie on top, wrapped it in plastic wrap, put it in the freezer, and waited for the birthday boy to get home. My go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe is the one on the Nestle chocolate chip bag.  It’s a reliable recipe that tastes sweet, simple, and chocolatly – just like cookies should! I halved the recipe and used about 80% semisweet chips and 20% milk chocolate chips. My chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches were a no fuss birthday win!

These cookies are the light at the end of our busy week tunnel – that, and the fact that as you’re reading this we are on our way to Costa Rica for vacation!  I can’t wait to share some good eats with you when I get back!
