How to make a homemade chipwich

The secret to a delicious homemade cookie ice cream sandwich? Using the best chocolate chip cookie recipe, of course. Nothing beats a good chocolate chip cookie. So when you sandwich two together with ice cream, you are most certainly in for a treat.

Bake the chocolate chip cookies according to the instructions (I included it in the recipe card below). Then let the cookies cool completely. A key step in making these homemade Chipwiches is freezing the cookies after they’re done cooling. You’d think all you have to do is sandwich ice cream between freshly-baked cookies, but that’s not the case.

Freezing the cookies makes them sturdier and hardens the melted chocolate chips. You need stiff cookies in order to sandwich the ice cream in between otherwise you’ll have a crumbly cookie mess. Don’t worry though, the chilled cookies will maintain their deliciousness!

Once the ice cream is sandwiched in the center, roll the sides of the ice cream sandwich in mini chocolate chips. Place the chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches in the freezer to set and enjoy whenever!

How to store ice cream sandwiches

Once the ice cream sandwiches are assembled, make sure you put them back in the freezer to harden and set. Then, individually wrap the chipwiches in plastic wrap or reusable storage bags. Ice cream sandwiches will keep for up to a month in the freezer.
