Simply delicious! Plus you look like a genious in front of kids! Another great thing about this recipe is you can use this as a starting point and get really creative. I used chocolate wafer cookies and chocolate chip cookies and made some with vanilla ice cream and some with chocolate ice cream. When it comes to rolling the ice cream sandwiches I used all kinds of stuff: mini chocolate chips, mini M&M's, toffee pieces, toasted coconut, choppped peanuts, crushed Oreos....etc. These definitely are a hit and a really cool and tasty treat! Thanks cookin'mama for a great recipe!
OK, so we didn't quite follow the recipe verbatim! My dear stepdaughter made these using her homemade chocolate chip cookies, Haagen Dazs Dulce de Leche ice cream, and mini-chocolate chips; then we drizzled them with caramel & chocolate syrups, & used one as a birthday cake, as you'll see in the posted photo. It was fun and delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Cookin'mama!
I made these for the kids on their last day of school as a treat. I used oreos for theirs and strawberry icecream because it is their favorite. But, I made the hubby and I some using Pecan Sandies, chocolate icecream, and rolling them in crushed chocolate covered expresso beans. WOW they were good! Thanks for the recipe!
I used chocolate ice cream and toffee cookies from the bakery. Rolled them in Heath Bar bits. Awesome!! Thank you Cookin'Mama!!
I've made these before and find taste tasty but messy, both to make and to eat. I use these thin, flat chocolate wafers, and spread with home made whipped cream (whip a pint of heavy cream with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla until very stiff.) Then, spread a little on an oblong plate; spread some of the whipped cream on each cookie and (after you have a few together) stand VERTICALLY on the plate. After the whole box of cookies is done, frost the entire "log" with the remaining whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate several hours. After a couple of hours in the 'fridge, the crisp cookies will absorb moisture from the whipped cream and become cake-like. Slice the "log" on the diagonal for a REALLY tasty chocolate/cream dessert. I find this less messy but just as good as the ice cream version!
Fun! The combonations you can come up with are endless. Different flavor ice creams, sprinkles, nuts, toffee....
Great - easy recipe that my family and friends love! Easy way to make a tasty portion controlled treat. The longer the chocolate wafer cookies stay in the freezer - the softer they become, almost like traditional ice cream sandwiches. Also - I made this again with chewy chocolate chip cookies - the opposite holds true for the "chewy" store bought cookies - they get harder the longer they are in the freezer - beware!
Just the ticket for a fun, easy, pretty dessert that everyone enjoyed! I've also used chocolate chip, oatmeal, and plain sugar cookies, dipped in sprinkles of all sorts. They were all great! Thank you for such a fun submission!
