Chocolate Chip Ice recipe from Macheesmo Cream Sandwiches

Ice Cream Sandies

All this week on Macheesmo I’m making cookies!  Be sure to check out the full list of cookie recipes on Macheesmo for even more cookie ideas.

As you’ll learn if you stick around for this full week, my definition of “cookie” is pretty broad.  I should’ve probably called it “Dessert-that-you-can-eat-with-your-hands week”, but that doesn’t have the same flair.

Some might be shocked to see an ice cream based recipe in December, but I’m just not one of those guys that only likes to eat ice cream when it’s warm outside.

In fact, I’m up for eating ice cream pretty much any time.  I could have hypothermia and be lost in the Canadian wilderness and probably still be up for a double scoop, or one of these Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches!

  1. Why do I always make ice cream in the Winter? Maybe it’s a Colordo “thing”. Great minds think alike, I just made ice cream sandwiches and will blogging about them in the near future. Great step by step instrucitons by the way.

    1. Good question. I store mine in a tuppaware. If you wanted to keep them for longer than a month or so it would probably be a good idea to individually wrap them in plastic wrap.

  2. I just made homemade vanilla for gifts…and found my vanilla beans online. Google Beanilla, I am sure you will find it. Lots of choices, for a lot less money!

  3. Mmm… as someone who does live in the Canadian wilderness I can tell you that this still sounds pretty amazing to snack on- I’m thinking of these on a dark, cold evening with a Chai tea latte & a blanket & a book on the couch looking out at the blowing snow and wallowing in the opulence of enjoying some cold-weather ice cream…. see? Don’t you just want to live in -40 for a couple months now? It’s all about the wallowing.
