Makes 1, 9-inch cake
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature (2 sticks)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups/ 12 ounces chocolate chips
- Cooking spray
For the Ice Cream Filling and Decor:
- 1.5 quarts of vanilla ice cream or your favorite flavor! (slightly softened)
- Sprinkles or mini chocolate chips for decor, whichever you prefer
- 2 Mixing bowls
- Measuring cups/spoons
- 2 – 9” cake pans
- 1 – 9” springform pan
- Plastic wrap
Preheat oven to 350 degrees or if using a convection oven, 325 degrees
For the Ice Cream:
Place plastic wrap in a 9” springform pan. Pour softened vanilla ice cream into the springform pan and spread evenly. Freeze until solid (about 40 minutes).
For the Cookies:
Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and mix together; set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine the room temperature butter and sugars; whisk until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla to butter/sugar mixture, one at a time, until fully incorporated; be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl after each addition. Add dry ingredients 1⁄3 at a time until incorporated; do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed.
Spray two 9” baking pans with baking spray. Divide the batter in two even portions; spread into each pan. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes.
Once the cookies have cooled, place one cookie upside down and layer the ice cream round over it. Place the other cookie right side up over the ice-cream.
Using your hand, scoop sprinkles and/or chocolate chips all around the ice-cream. Freeze for an additional hour if you want a solid sandwich (easier to cut), but if you’re like me, just eat it!
