You know, the type you crave on an extra hot day, can bring to a summer BBQ party, or just when you're looking for some weekend baking fun that won't be too heavy.
So we all love a good cookie, who doesn't?! But to summer-ify even the best cookie, a cookie ice cream sandwhich is definitely in order. When we were little, we would always go for the chipwhich when the local ice cream truck rolled by, and these Triple Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches are our EXTRA chocolately, extra delicious, take on a classic.
This recipe starts off by making the chocolate cookies for these rich and indulgent sandwiches. Being a triple chocolate recipe, you better believe that the cookies are super chocolatey, crinkley, and downright delicious. Here are the ingredients you'll need:

The only important tips here are that ice cream melts FAST. So work quickly to scoop each scoop on, and try and get them into the freezer as quickly as you can. Once they re-freeze for 20 minutes, they'll be much more solidified and ready to dip into the melted chocolate and coconut oil.
What makes these ice cream sandwiches triple chocolate?
