Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream BarsPinit


This week’s stress relief of choice comes to you in the form of melty, messy chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches.  Oh, sweet glory.

These pups are everything I love about summer/life in general, smooshed up into one compact little dessert bar.  Obviously they are meant to leave your face melting with love, especially when eaten from the comfort of the couch while your husband carries all your heavy kitchen-gadget boxes out to the car.  That’s what summer is for: slurping melted ice cream off your face and watching other people do work. It just should be that way.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Bars |

I love how chocolate chip cookies make everything normal again.  Although I’d like to acknowledge the fact that normal is a major grey area right now.

But I’m considering this more normal than my current moving/packing diet, which is eating anything left in our pantry that has been transferred to a shoebox on the counter, which really just means peanut butter served on a red plastic spoon.

Speaking of peanut butter. 

And chocolate chip cooke ice cream bars.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Bars
  • 2 18 ounce rolls of pre-made cookie dough
  • OR homemade cookie dough
  • ½ gallon vanilla ice cream
  1. Roll half of the dough into a 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 (or temperature for your specific dough) for about 25 minutes, or until edges and top are golden brown. Underbaking is recommended! Let cool and lift out of the baking dish. Repeat with other half of the dough, or if you had 2 of the same sized pan you could do it at the same time. Be sure to let the cookie layers cool for several hours.
  2. Leave one cookie layer in the pan; top with ice cream, pressing firmly to make a tight layer. Top with other cookie layer and press firmly. Freeze until ready to serve; thaw for a few minutes before eating.
For easier eating, just freeze the bottom cookie layer and ice cream. Place the top cookie layer on just before serving so the tops are soft. You can also melt them for about 10 seconds in the microwave and eat them in a bowl (my favorite). I didn't use the whole ½ gallon of ice cream for these ones.

It might be the ice cream and cookies making me all sentimental, but I just want you all to know that I really appreciate each of your kind comments and emails over the last few weeks. Thanks for your support as Bjork and I pack up our house, delay posts (income report IS coming soon, though!), whine a little, and get ready to make our move to the Philippines.

When we come back, I’ll make you some chocolate chip cookie ice cream bars.

  1. There is nothing so comforting as a chocolate chip cookie is there? Even better when it’s two cookies containing a layer of ice cream! Good luck with the rest of the packing, I know that all this stress will be so worth it when you get to the Philippines.

  2. These look perfect for summer (and stress relief)! I’m living vicariously through you, so I’ll probably need a few of these from my couch too. I’ll pretend I’m watching Bjork carry stuff to my car . . . . 😉

  3. You’ve done it again! I’ll have to stop thinking about these until at least lunchtime – then I can get busy assembling my own :) Beautiful photos…best of luck with your move!

  4. Deliciousness. How about you just take a spoon to the ice cream, anda spoon to the dough and repeat?

  5. This looks so comforting. I think adding a layer of cookie dough to the middle would be divine. I hope your move goes well. I know how scary big changes can be, but so exciting too!

  6. Wow, oh wow. These are the perfect answer to a long summer with a six year-old! I love the fact that they’re in bar form. So ‘adjustable’ cutting-wise. Very smart.

    What an incredible feat you’re pulling off, with the packing, moving and all.

  7. We have company coming over Friday night and I’m making these little delights. :)

    Lindsay, you are going to be great in the Philippines! God is going to use your talents and big heart to further His Kingdom and all who meet you will be blessed. You and Bjork are so loveable. :)

    Praying for your big move! Can’t wait to follow your adventures.

  8. Whyyyyy must you do this to me?! I’ve had such a sweet tooth lately and this is not helping! :)

  9. Cookie dough plus wonderfully simple vanilla ice cream. Sounds like the perfect summer treat!

  10. Cathy Enders says:

    Agreed – there is nothing like a still warm chocolate chip cookie bar. And adding ice cream…well the penthouse cloud in heaven!

    Praying for you each time I come to the blog for my food fix.

  11. I love that you used pre-made dough….SUCH a timesaver :) And these look stunning, amazing, must-make!

  12. Doesn’t get much better than this, chocolate chip cookies and ice-cream !

  13. Yes, please! These look so delicious, totally perfect for the summer! 😀

  14. Well, there’s hardly any need to mention what a wonderful job you guys are doing here. But since I am writing my post for the versatile blogger award, I just couldn’t refrain from not mentioning your names there. Thanks for this lovely blog!

  15. Yum Yum

  16. OHMYGOD. I think I found out what I’m gonna be making for lunch. Is that wrong??

  17. These would definitely cheer me up!! I hope you can access cookie dough in the Philippines and replicate these whenever you miss home.

  18. These look so good and EASY! Love your tips about under cooking the cookie layers and leaving the top off until right before they’re cut. They’re always so hard to cut and eat when they’re frozen solid all the way through. Great idea! Thanks, oh brilliant one. :-)

  19. These can definitely serve as any kind of stress relief! Hope your moving process goes smoothly.

  20. I love how simple yet decadent this ice cream bars are. What a fabulous summer recipe!!!

  21. ummm, why aren’t we neighbors?! holy crap, i would’ve loved to come over to console you and make sure you’re okay…and then help you eat these!!

  22. Hmm, the perfect stress relief! Nothing better than a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich! Except maybe snitching some dough and ice cream while making them! :)

  23. HA, I was definitely wondering where you were going with Bjork leaving your face dripping with love. Yeeks. These sound like everything I want when I’m walking the boardwalk by the ocean in summer!

  24. These look ahhhhh~mazing!

  25. What a great combination and so easy! Love it!

  26. What a lovely blog, filled with treasures! Thanks for the recepie,it looks stunning, have a wonderful Day!

  27. I just died. This looks so good. I am going to the store today & making these tonight!

  28. I’m such a sucker for those Nestle ice cream cookie sandwiches, I can’t wait to make these!

  29. Katherine from Australia says:

    This does sound amazing! I have tried a similar dessert with lamingtons, halved, with icecream between – delicious (and makes portion serving so easy)!

  30. Oh this looks delicious. That’s what I need right away. Now I go hungry

  31. Those look amazing! I will have to try them this summer!

  32. These look absolutely divine and I plan on making them this week! One question though because I have never tried this before and somehow I missed it in your recipe–when do you cut them? Can’t wait to try it! My husband is going to be thrilled.

    • I cut them after they were in the freezer. It is very hard to cut them right away because they’re so hard, but if you wait too long they will melt. So it’s kinda tricky. I let them soften for just a little while before slicing them with a huge, strong knife. :)

  35. Wonderful litte bars and just perfect for late summer afternoons and some happy faces. 😉

  36. These look divine!!!
