Rich, chocolate wafers can be transformed into delicious ice-cream sandwiches when filled with your favorite store-bought or homemade ice cream. We like the Yin and Yang combination of vanilla ice cream and chocolate cookies.
- 1/2 recipe of chocolate wafers.
- 1 pint favorite ice cream, softened or freshly churned. Try Simple Vanilla Ice Cream.
Bake and cool the cookies according to the recipe.
Place a small scoop of soft ice cream on the bottom of one of the cookies. Cover with a second cookie bottom side down and gently press to make a sandwich.
Repeat until a 6 sandwiches are made and place in the freezer immediately. Freeze until completely hard, at least 2 hours.
To store, individually wrap in plastic or put in an airtight container in the freezer.
