Servings: 16
Prep Time: 25 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, tightly packed
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tub of good quality vanilla ice cream, slightly softened

Equipment

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • 9x13 inch baking pan
  • Electric beaters or whisk
  • Parchment Paper
  • Measuring cups and spoons

Method

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar and mix until light in color and fluffy.
  • Add the milk and vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  • Add flour and salt to wet ingredients and stir to combine. Once combined, fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Line your baking tray with parchment paper leaving some overhang on each end. Spoon half of the cookie dough into the pan and press into a single uniform layer, trying to smooth the top as much as possible. Place in freezer for 15 minutes to firm up a bit.
  • Remove baking tray from freezer and lay down another piece of parchment paper on top of the firm cookie dough layer.
  • Spread the remaining dough out, on top of the new parchment, repeating the process as you did for the first layer, then place the whole thing in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour until both layers are firm.
  • Remove baking tray from freezer, use the sandwiched parchment layer to lift the top layer of cookie dough away from the first. Be careful not to crack the top layer. Spread the softened vanilla ice cream in an even layer on top of the cookie dough layer that is still in the pan.
  • Top with the other frozen layer of cookie dough, making sure you have removed any parchment paper. Press down lightly and place the whole thing in the freezer for 4 hours or overnight.
  • Slice into sandwiches and devour immediately, or wrap individually and place back into the freezer for spontaneous treats.
