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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
