Make your own customized version of this classic frozen treat. We used oatmeal cookies and mint chocolate chip ice cream, but any combo can be delicious.
Step 1: Ingredients
-1 dozen of your favorite cookie, relatively equally sized
-1 quart of your favorite ice cream (ideally complimentary to your cookie flavor)
-12oz chocolate chips or other melting chocolate
-a baking sheet that fits in your freezer
Makes six sandwiches
Note: I like the oatmeal cookie recipe that comes on the back of the carton of Quaker oats.
Step 2: Sandwiches
Step 3: Chocolate!
Melt chocolate chips and butter in a pan on the stove, being careful to stir often to avoid burning he chocolate. If it gets too clumpy or grainy try adding a bit more butter.
Dip your frozen sandwiches in chocolate as quickly as possible to prevent melting the ice cream. You can try using a spoon for this but we had more success dipping by hand. Try to cover both sides and the ice cream edge with chocolate, using your fingers to smear across exposed areas as necessary.
Place chocolate-covered sandwiches on a baking sheet covered with wax paper and replace in freezer.
