Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches, better than anything you can buy from the store, especially when the cookie is made from scratch!

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches, better than anything you can buy from the store, especially when the cookie is made from scratch!

You know that old saying, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade? Well, I made a Chocolate Cookie recipe wrong and so I made these easy Ice Cream sandwiches. Best mistake I ever made.

The girls are back doing their summer baking project again this year. They’ve figured out it’s a great way to make money for the extra things they might need. This year, Cassie’s using her money for Band Camp and Grace will use her’s to purchase her instrument for band.

I like it because it’s something we can do together, it get’s us out and about once a week. The businesses we go to love it and actually make requests for cookies and above all, it’s teaching them to work for what they want or need.

Our local bank is one of their best customers. All year they ask when the girls will be selling again. Those ladies love the Cake Mix Cookies. I think because it’s so easy for the girls to make different flavors. If you can find cake mix on sale, it’s a pretty good profit too.

I don’t know what I was thinking but instead of verifying the ingredients with the girls, I told them the recipe from memory. When the cookies came out of the oven they were large flat disks. Still soft and tasty, just not what the bank ladies would be expecting.

After baking up the second tray and eating 2 or 3 cookies with a glass of milk, we realized these would be perfect for ice cream sandwiches. And they were. Cassie and I created an assembly line to put them together and the dog was right there at our feet to clean up any sprinkles that made it to the floor.

These are great with just vanilla Ice Cream. The perfect balance of chocolate and vanilla. Try them with Coffee Ice Cream or Peanut Butter Ice Cream to take them to the next level!

    I read the ice cream sandwich recipe and the cake mix cookie recipes several times each, and I just can’t see what “mistake’ you made. They look identical. I have made cake mix cookies before, and they are not discs. Am I missing something? What did you do different for the ice cream sandwiches? I love ice cream sandwiches, and would love to try some homemade ones!

    • In this recipe the powdered sugar is mixed into the batter instead of just rolling the cookie dough balls in the powdered sugar after preparing it. The extra sugar “melts” the cookies, making them flatter and perfect for ice cream sandwiches.

  16. I need to make these soon, they will be a huge hit with my family!!!

  17. Wow! These are lovely. It’s good that you messed up with your cookies because we now have this wonderful ice cream sandwich recipe. This is such an amazing frozen treat and perfect for the summer! :)

  19. My kids would seriously love these. Like nominate me for mom of the year kind of love. Thanks for the recipe. Pinning, Stumbling and Yumming! :)

  20. Geneva Brown says:

    Would this work with all cake mix flavors? I’m not a big fan of devils food.

    • Yes, it should work with almost any cake flavor. I’ve made them with a basic yellow cake mix, red velvet and a spice cake mix. All turned out delicious!
