Any chocolate chip cookie recipe will work, but we prefer the extra-chocolaty, extra-rich recipe below. Try these ice-cream flavors with our cookies: vanilla, peppermint, chocolate, or butter pecan.
Makes 15 ice-cream sandwiches

1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups candy-coated chocolate pieces
Ice cream (about 2 cups)


Prep: 10 Minutes
Bake: 8 Minutes
Cook: 15 Minutes

1. Beat first 3 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer 4 minutes or until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until blended.

2. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Stir in candy-coated chocolate pieces just until combined. Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls onto greased aluminum foil- or parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

3. Bake, in batches, at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove to wire racks, and let cool completely, about 15 minutes.

4. Place a small scoop of ice cream between 2 cookies. Press together gently; serve immediately, or wrap in aluminum foil or plastic wrap, and freeze until ready to serve.
