We love The Famous Wafer cookies and they make amazing ice cream sandwiches. If you have trouble finding them, they are typically found in the ice cream department at the store and not with the cookies.

Ingredients for Ice cream sandwich recipe:

  • All Purpose Flour 
  • Baking Soda 
  • Brown Sugar 
  • Granulated Sugar 
  • Eggs 
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips 
  • Vanilla Extract 
  • Salt 
  • Home Style Vanilla Ice Cream

Homemade Ice cream sandwiches recipe:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a ribbed baking sheet (18X13 pan) with parchment paper (make sure that the paper overhangs the sheet) and spray the paper with non-stick cooking spray. 
  • Place the butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat these ingredients in 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring after each interval until fully melted and combined.  Let the chocolate cool for a few minutes until it is warm to the touch.  Then whisk in both sugars, then the eggs and vanilla extract.  
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Then stir the chocolate mixture into the flour mixture until it’s just combined.  Do not over mix.  
  • Pour the batter onto the lined baking sheet and spread the batter out evenly.  Bake for 12-15 minutes until it has puffed up slightly.  Then let it cool completely at room temperature. 
  • Cut the brownie in half.  Layer the 2 brownies on the baking sheet with parchment paper in between them. Then freeze them for 15 minutes.  
  • While the brownies are in the freezer, beat the ice cream on low in a stand up mixer or with a hand held mixer until the ice cream is soft and easy to spread. 
  • Remove the brownie from the freezer.  Place 1 brownie on the baking sheet.  Spread the soft ice cream over the top of that brownie.  Then top with the other half of the brownie.  Then place it back into the freezer for at least 2 hours.  
  • Once it’s fully frozen, use a sharp knife to cut it into smaller rectangles that are approximately 2.25X4 inches.  
  • Then the ice cream sandwiches are ready to serve or you can wrap each sandwich individually with plastic wrap and freeze until you are ready to serve. 

Tip for homemade ice cream sandwich:

The easiest way to dip the edges of the ice cream sandwiches is to place the crushed oreo cookies, rainbow sprinkles and mini chocolate chips onto a small plate, spreading the items out as evenly and flat as possible. You can even combine several different toppings. Just use a medium bowl whisk together and then place on cookies. I bet you could even drizzle hot fudge. Just let it cool completely on a wire wrack for 30 minutes before storing.

3. Freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight on baking sheets or a cookie sheet. Store in a covered container. I like to wrap them individually with plastic wrap or separate the layers with parchment paper.

Recipe Notes

As long as the ice cream sandwiches are stored correctly, they should last for up to 1 month in the freezer. 
If you have trouble with the brownie batter spreading into the baking sheet.  Spray your fingertips with non-stick cooking spray and use your fingers to press the batter into the pan.

Make sure you have a good ice cream scoop. I also use a shallow storage container to store the ice cream sandwiches in the freezer. It keeps them nice and fresh and they are easy to get to since it’s shallow.
