Easy Ice Cream Sandwiches

Delicious chocolate cookie ice cream sandwiches which make for an easy cool treat.


12 ice cream sandwiches


1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Lightly grease baking sheets using Pan Release or cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, butter, vanilla extract, eggs, chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips. Roll dough into 2 inch balls and place them onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Do not overbake; the cookies should be set, but still soft. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to finish cooling on wire racks.

Using an ice cream scoop, mold the softened ice cream into a ball about the size of the cookies. Place scoop of ice cream between two cookies and gently press together. If you like a smooth edge, run the back of a spoon around the edge of the ice cream sandwich. Working quickly, fill all of the cookies, lay out on a baking sheet, and place in the freezer to harden. Serve when the ice cream has frozen solid. Sandwich cookies can be stored in a freezer bag for up to two weeks.

Additional Information

Drizzle a little ice cream topping between the cookies and ice cream for a more indulgent treat.


Use any flavor of cake mix, chips, or ice cream.
