Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

What's better than just a chocolate chip cookie by itself.......but two chocolate chip cookies with cookie dough ice cream sandwich between. These will have you totally hooked!!

I make up a bunch, paper them and pop them in the freezer, for that oh so hot type of day. Which we are just coming around to have in the New England area. Is it true, summer is finally here????

This recipe is so awesome, especially made with milk chocolate chips, as opposed to semi sweet. I happen to like milk chocolate better. I doubled the recipe and was able to get plenty of sandwiches. I refrigerated the dough first so that I could make bigger scoops and roll them into balls. Then I flatten them slightly, before baking. After baking , they were cooled. Then I added the ice cream and froze them in the freezer in little brown bags.

These sandwiches will have you totally hooked!

OK - my kids and I are going to make these tomorrow!!! I have actually found the most heavenly chocolate chip cookie mix - yes, a mis - Giardelli chocolate chip cookie mix. The best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made, and I have made lots of 'from scratch' recipes. They are the perfect combination of crisp and chewy! They can be hard to find, though - every time I go into the store I look for them, and I can only find them in one store in Atlanta. I have looked in Colorado, DC, California, Maryland, and have never seen them anywhere but my local store!
