  • 1/2 cup Butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa **
  • 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chunks

  • Favorite Ice Cream Flavors may use pints or half-gallons. Read instructions to determine which one to use.

  • **Notes: I use Callebaut cocoa powder. It is high quality but it can be found for an incredibly low price at a Winco grocery store in their bulk bins. It's 4 times as much on Amazon. Trader Joe's has a nice cocoa powder as well.


  1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream cold butter cubes and sugar for at least 4 minutes, scraping the bowl halfway through mixing.
  3. Add egg and vanilla.
  4. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Stir in chocolate.
  5. Roll into 12 balls and place on cookie sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper. Flatten with glass.
  6. Cook for 10-14 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool on baking racks.
  7. Let cookies cool completely. Freeze for 20 minutes before stuffing with ice cream.
  8. Place ice cream on the bottom of a cookie and top with another cookie and press down. If you want uniform ice cream disks, turn the ice cream pints on their sides and use a serrated knife to slice through the containers, cutting into even rounds. Place the ice cream disks on a baking sheet and freeze until ready to assemble the sandwiches. To assemble, peel the cardboard from the ice cream disks and sandwich each disk between 2 cookies.
  9. If using scooped ice cream, flatten as much as possible before stuffing cookies.
  10. Wrap and freeze until ready to eat.
