a homemade version of this classic ice cream truck treat!



For the Cookies (recipe from NYTcooking):

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (light or dark is fine)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the Chipwich:

  • 1/2 gallon vanilla bean ice cream (or any kind you like best) – you’ll have some leftover
  • Mini chocolate chips for rolling the edges in


For the Cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with a silpat or parchment paper.  Set aside.
  2. Place a sifter over a large mixing bowl and combine flour & baking soda.  Sift through then set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle, beat butter until creamy (about 2 minutes)
  4. Scrape down sides of bowl and paddle then add sugars and salt.  Beat for an additional minute or until smooth.
  5. Scrape down sides of bowl and paddle then add egg & vanilla and beat on low for about 15 seconds or until fluffy.
  6. Scrape down sides of the bowl and paddle and then add flour.  Beat on low speed until all flour is incorporated then fold in chocolate chips.
  7. Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough into balls and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 13-15 minutes or until bottom and edges are gently browned.  Allow to cool for 3-5 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Once completely cooled, place in a freezer safe bag and freeze for 30 minutes+

For the Chipwich:

  1. Place mini chips in a wide mouth bowl.
  2. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop ice cream onto the bottom of one cookie then sandwich (bottom first) with second cookie.
  3. Roll edges in mini chocolate chips.
  4. Enjoy immediately or wrap individually in plastic wrap and store in the freezer in a freezer safe bag.


  • Sandwiches should last in the freezer for up to 1 month.
