Ice Cream White Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches
I made these puffed up chocolate chip cookies before and I remember them being some soft, chewy and sweet. Today, I thought it’d be perfect to slab some ice cream in between two of those cookies and call it my indulgent, totally-deserve-it, amazing, wowzer treat of the week. And these Ice Cream White Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches are all that I just described and a bag of chips. Oooo, a bag of chips would actually give this a nice salty balance to the sweetness. But no, sorry there’s no actual bag of chips that comes with the recipe. It’s just a good old chocolate chip cookie with some store-bought organic vanilla bean ice cream. I decided to roll them in some leftover purple sugar sprinkles from Valentine’s Day just to give them a extra crunch and color, but that totes optional. Here’s the pre-sprinkles rolling photo. Still scrumptious and yummy, amiright?!
