This recipe is a blast from the past! This Chipwich Ice Cream Sandwich is the homemade - and giant - version of the classic ice cream truck treat we all craved as kids. It's so easy to whip up that you'll want to make it every week.
This ice cream sandwich is basically 2 giant chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream filling - easy peasy! It's perfect for birthday parties, summer cookouts, game day...or just a regular Tuesday. If you can't manage to finish it all the leftovers it will keep for one month in the freezer.
- ¾ cup butter, room temperature
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 egg, plus 1 yolk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups flour
- 1½ cups chocolate chips
- ½ gallon vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup mini chips
Preheat your oven to 350°F/175°C
Spray a 9" springform pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
In a bowl beat the butter and sugar together for 2 minutes.
Add in the egg, yolk, vanilla, baking soda and salt mixing for 1 minute until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl, as necessary.
Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, mixing until just combined.
Stir in the 1½ cups chocolate chips.
Divide the dough in half and press half of the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake this for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden and center is just set.
Allow the cookie to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the sides of the springform pan and using a spatula carefully transfer the cookie to a wire rack to cool completely.
Clean the pan, spray again with nonstick spray and repeat the baking process with the remaining dough, however when the second cookie is done leave it in the pan and allow it to cool there.
When the second cookie is cooled remove your ice cream from the freezer and allow it to thaw slightly so it's spreadable. Spread in springform cake pan and place back in the freezer to set for 2 hours.
Take the ice cream out of the pan and place between the two cookies.
When you're ready to serve the cake, press mini chocolate chips into the ice cream.
Slice and serve.
