Simply the best!


My best recipe happens to be my simplest. To celebrate the first day of summer these are a must. These soft chewy cookies are the perfect consistency when frozen for ice cream sandwiches. They are also delicious on their own.

Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

1 box Devil’s Food Cake Mix (I like Duncan Hines or Aldi’s Store brand best)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional for ice cream sandwiches but a must for the cookies without ice cream)


Mix together dry cake mix, 1/2 cup oil and 2 eggs. Stir in chocolate chips. I use a cookie scoop to make the balls. This recipe makes 20 cookies.


Bake cookies at 350 for about 11-13 minutes (Cookies are soft). Chill cookies completely before making ice cream sandwiches —-otherwise they are heavenly warm!

To make ice cream sandwiches, take your favorite 1/2 gallon ice cream in a block and slice it into about 1 inch slices.


Using a glass the same diameter of your cookie cut out a circle of ice cream


Immediately place ice cream disc between two cookies and freeze!



Happy Summer!

    I just made icecream sandwiches. I don’t know why I never thought of using a cookie cutter. I just spoon it on and it doesn’t turn out so pretty. That’s a great way to start summer.
