Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches

An old childhood favourite, just stepped up an extra notch in flavour and looks, but not in difficulty. Chewy and sweet chocolate chip cookie filled with soft vanilla ice cream. Easy to prepare ahead of time to store in the freezer.

You Will Need:

  • 2 cups Plain White Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Dairy Free Margarine
  • 2-3 tbs Light Golden Syrup
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup White Sugar
  • 1 tbs Vanilla Sugar or Essence
  • Egg Replacer equal to 2 Eggs (mixed according to directions on packet) 
  • 150-200 grams Vegan Friendly Chocolate
  • You Favourite Dairy Free Vanilla Ice Cream

  1. Mix all your dry ingredients.
  2. Add margarine (room temperature), vanilla and egg replacer to the dry ingredients.
  3. When your cookie dough is evenly mixed, add your roughly chopped chocolate and mix.
  4. Line two trays with baking paper and roll your cookie dough. Use a dough scoop for equal sized cookies.
  5. Space the cookie balls evenly onto the trays and bake for 17-25 minutes in a oven preheated to 165 C / 325 F (the cookies should be golden and starting to crisp on the edges and staying chewy in the middle.
  6. Leave the cookies on the trays to cool down.
  7. Take the ice cream out of the freezer to get a little soft (to be able to fill the cookie sandwiches easier)
  8. Fill the ice cream sandwiches by stacking a good ammount of ice cream on one cookie and then pushing another gently on top. (the cookies can be kept whole/round if wanted or cut into half rounds if desired, that is what i did. Remember to cut the cookies in half before filling them)
  9. Clean the edges of the cookie sandwich and freeze until it is time to eat them.
