Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

For a wonderful summer treat, try homemade Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches.  We all remember the traditional ice cream sandwiches and, if you’re like me, you love them.  Now try it with amazing chocolate cookies sandwiching Oreo ice cream and coat the sides with chunks of Oreo cookies.  Wowza!

One of the beauties of this recipe is that you can use any type of ice cream.  If you love peanut butter ice cream, go ahead and use that and coat the sides with crumbled Reese’s pieces.  If you like caramel ice cream, you could fill the cookies with that and coat the sides with Heath pieces.  So many choices…

Can we talk about the cookies?  These chocolate cookies are out of this world!  They are rich in chocolate flavor with a hint of salt and they are chewy and soft at the same time.  They are the perfect cookie to use for sandwiches or to eat on their own (I confess we scarfed down quite a few before we filled them).

Melt the butter and chocolate together in the microwave.  Separately, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.  

In another bowl, mix the eggs and sugar.  Whisk in the melted chocolate and fold in the flour mixture.

Scoop the dough onto prepared sheetpans and bake for 10 or so minutes.  Once they have cooled slightly, take a round cookie cutter slightly smaller than the cookie and cut the cookies to make 16 even circles.

While the cookies are baking, soften the ice cream and spread it into a 9 x 9-inch baking pan that has been lined with plastic wrap.  Freeze it for an hour.

To assemble the sandwiches,  cut out ice-cream circles using a round cookie cutter that is slightly smaller than the cutter used for the cookies.  Place the ice cream in between two cookies and then press oreo cookie chunks onto the outside of the ice cream. You might want to put each sandwich into the freezer on a sheet pan as you are making them to keep them from melting.

Store these in the freezer until you’re ready to serve them.

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Makes: 8 ice cream sandwiches

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Bake Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour & 20 minutes

Ingredients

Chocolate Cookies:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 & 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 & 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs

1 & 1/2 quarts Oreo Cookie Ice Cream

10 Oreo Cookies, coarsely chopped for garnish

Instructions

For the chocolate cookies, preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a microwave-safe dish, melt the butter and chocolate. Let cool. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk sugar and eggs until well combined. Whisk in melted chocolate and fold in flour mixture, just until flour disappears. Scoop 3 tbsp of cookie dough spread 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet, pressing dough down slightly. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Using a round cookie cutter just slightly larger than cookies, cut the cookies to make 16 even circles (I used a 2 & 3/4″ round cutter).

For the ice cream, allow it to soften for 5 minutes. Spread the ice cream into a 9 x 9-inch baking pan that has been covered on the bottom with plastic wrap. Place in freezer for 1 hour.

To assemble ice cream sandwiches, remove the ice cream from the pan using the plastic wrap and cut out ice cream circles using a round cookie cutter that is slightly smaller than the one used for the cookies. Place ice cream between 2 cookies, garnish edges with chopped cookies and wrap each sandwich with plastic wrap. Store in freezer until ready to serve.
