Monster Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Monster Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Chewy peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies layered on each side of a scoop of pure vanilla ice cream. These sandwiches are a perfect summer dessert, or snack, or meal all by themselves. The chewy cookie stays soft next to the ice cream, even straight from the freezer. These ice cream sandwiches are the very best thing about Monster Cookies!

I almost always make these sandwiches with Blue Bell Natural Vanilla Bean Ice Cream**. Just a handful of ingredients and I can pronounce all of them. I rarely plan far enough ahead to make my own ice cream for these. Although, one memorable batch last year was made using Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

Place the cookies in the freezer for at least two hours before assembling the sandwiches. When you are ready to assemble, let the ice cream thaw on the counter for a few minutes. It should be scoop-able, but still firm. Scoop about a 1/3 cup of ice cream onto one cookie and top with another one. Press gently between your hands to spread the ice cream between the cookies. Return the cookies to the freezer for at least a couple hours prior to eating. (Although, if you can resist them that long, you are stronger than I am!) Enjoy!

Tips for freezer storage: These can be stacked in a large airtight container and they will keep well that way. They can also be wrapped individually in foil. I do not recommend storing them in ziplocs or sandwich bags, they will absorb some of the plastic smell and I really didn't like that. For what it's worth, the no one else in my family was bothered by it.

* I prefer these cookies without the m&ms when they are going to be made into ice cream sandwiches. I usually make half the batch without the m&ms just for this purpose.

** For what it is worth, Blue Bell does not know who I am. I simply like their ice cream!
