Have y’all ever had an It’s It’s Ice Cream Sandwich? I never heard of them until I moved to L.A., but they’re kind of a big deal. It’s vanilla ice cream mashed between two oatmeal cookies and completely dipped in milk chocolate! When I first discovered them I was immediately obsessed.
My Chocolate Dipped Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich recipe is an homage to that sweet treat. It is perfectly decadent and totally something that I crave all the time. It’s one of those few desserts that I can truly only have one of (whereas I could easily inhale a dozen chocolate chip cookies), because it’s so rich, chocolatey, and satisfying all on its own.
Ok, I may have had two in one sitting but three would DEFINITELY be too many.
Homemade ice cream sandwiches are really not all that complicated, and they’re really such a fun dessert to make. If you have a bomb cookie recipe, ice cream, and a microwave on hand you can make your own ice cream sandwiches too! For these cookies I used my Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toffee ice cream that I made just a little while ago, and the combination was so sweet and sinful. I would love to try these again with different cookie and ice cream flavor combinations.
Making these is wonderfully messy but worth it. I hope you get to enjoy an oatmeal cookie ice cream sandwich really, really soon!
