This giant ice cream cookie sandwich, aka giant chipwhich is made from two cookies that are over 12" in diameter and contains a gallon of ice cream - that's big enough to be a delicious ice cream cake at your next birthday party, or to be eaten alone in compulsive shame giving you one mondo belly ache! 

While bigger is rarely better when it comes to food, I think that in this instance, it actually is.  The ratio of cookie to ice cream seems to be better balanced then the small cookie sandwiches, the cookies are thick and chewy with just a bit of crisp, and you get to choose your own ice cream flavor for the filling...all big improvements over the store bought conventional ice cream cookie sandwiches.

I'm using a slightly modified Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe that's been optimized for structural reinforcement for the giant top and bottom cookies, and mint chocolate chip ice cream for the filling.  Use whatever type of ice cream you like of course and make this cake a hit at your next party!

Step 1: Ingredients

The ingredients list is pretty much the straight up Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe off of the back of the bag of chips with one modification - the addition of some quick cook oats to absorb some of the extra moisture of the thick cookie and add some structural reinforcement to the cookie instead of simply adding more white flour.  Having made these giant cookies both with oats and without them, I think they're a valuable addition. 

In order to have enough cookie dough to make two of these behemoths, you've got to multiple the normal recipe by 1.5.
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick cook oats
  • 1.5 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 cup (3 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/8 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

<p>Don't use melted or partially melted butter because it changes the structure of the fat and will make the cookie spread out more. Allow the butter to soften at room temperature.</p>
So Yummy!!!!!! I want to eat it out of the computer!
That's radical dude!!(:
*want*<br><br>looks like I have some baking to do my kids (and myself) would love this!

Looks marvelous! :D<br><br>
Nom nom nom nom nom. NOM!
Looks great! Awesome instructable!! :)
This looks delicious!!
can you store it in the freezer.?
This looks amazing, but by 2 1/4 cups of flour do you mean 3 1/3? The regular toll house cookie recipe has 2 1/4, and 3 1/3 is roughly 2.25 multiplied by 1.5. Thanks for the great recipe!
Hmm, it does suggest in the text that oats are being used instead of extra flour, so perhaps the 1 cup of oats is why the flour is still 2 1/4 cups?
Noah, that looks awesome!&nbsp; I'll have to try it one day.&nbsp; Say hi to Randofo!
&nbsp;&nbsp;This is a GREAT birthday cake idea. I really like it. And good thinking on the oats. I'll be sure to do that, but I'm going to make my cookie and ice cream homemade. Mmmmm.....
AHHHHH!!!!! AMAZING!!!!! I looked at the title and was like CAN&nbsp;THIS&nbsp;BE and saw the pic and was flabergasted ! amazing cake idea!
I always restrict myself to no more than two cookies.<br /> <br /> This will do fine!!
Mmmm, giant cookie sandwich!<br />
Your oven dials look a bit like mine. I moved into a rented flat, and the temperature numbers have been scrubbed off. All my cooking is now guesswork. <br /> <br /> Can be fun sometimes trying to get dinner cooked right!!!<br />
&nbsp;That's incredible! I will make one for my sister's birthday. I'm sure she'll love it.
This is awesome.&nbsp; I must make it sometime.&nbsp; Great job!<br />
