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.
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.
These simple chocolate chip cookie ice cream bars have a layer of soft-baked cookies on the top and bottom, with vanilla ice cream in the middle.
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 1/2 gallon of ice cream for these ones.
