Decorations: candy-coated chocolate pieces, semisweet chocolate mini-morsels, chopped toasted nuts, toasted flaked coconut, nonpareils, ice-cream syrups and toppings
Additional ice-cream syrup and toppings (optional)


Top each of 8 cookies with 1/2 cup ice cream, spreading to fit; cover each with another cookie. Decorate, if desired, and freeze until firm. Drizzle or serve with additional syrup and toppings, if desired.
