Cake Batter Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Surely you’re familiar with my Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies, right?

They’re famous. They’ve been featured in magazines! These cookies are loved by countless friends, family, and readers. It took me almost 1 year to develop the recipe. And make them absolutely perfect. They’re a cross between a chocolate chip cookie and funfetti cake batter.

The best of both worlds!

They’re buttery, soft, chewy, and loaded with goodies: sprinkles, white chocolate, and chocolate chips.

Today I loaded them with something a little different.

Melty vanilla ice cream.

I have a feeling chocolate ice cream would be just as fabulous. Or, if you’re feeling frisky, perhaps some mint chocolate chip ice cream, peanut butter ice cream, or even cake batter ice cream! FYI – Ben & Jerry’s Cake Batter Ice Cream is out of this world! Today, I stuck with vanilla. It’s just what I had in the freezer.

You all know how much I love summer. While I’m already welcoming pumpkin with open arms, I just can’t say goodbye to the sunny weather and flip flops just yet. Although, let’s be honest. The cold weather never stops me from wearing flip flops or eating ice cream.

If you like ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, and cake batter – you’re my best friend AND this recipe is for you. The cookies are, without a doubt, amazing on their own but sandwiching ice cream between two of these chewy, sprinkle-loaded gems is heaven. Cake batter heaven.

I love any excuse to eat two cookies instead of one. Don’t you?

The best kind of sandwich! Made with vanilla ice cream and homemade cake batter chocolate chip cookies.



  1. Make the cookies according to my directions. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Set the ice cream out for about 10 minutes to slightly soften. Take a large scoop and sandwich it between two cookies. Feel free to roll the sides in sprinkles or chocolate chips. Freeze the sandwiches until ready to eat.


  1. Freezing Instructions: For longer storage, tightly wrap ice cream sandwiches individually in plastic wrap for up to 2 months.

  1. Great minds think alike 🙂 I totally made these last week with your cake batter cookie recipe and they got rave reviews (and they disappeared in a day)! What a simple, yet delicious dessert! I will definitely be making these again soon but may try making red velvet cookie ice cream sandwiches

  2. Great work. These would be great for the kids birthday parties in the summer. Thanks for the great recipes!

  3. New to your website and i LOVE it!! Question: do you normally wrap up each ice cream sandwich individually with saran wrap? I want to make them and bring them to a party and trying to figure out the best way.

    1. Yes, wrapping tightly in saran wrap is a great way to store and travel with them – definitely keep on ice when traveling with them.

  4. Hi, Sally! Long-time follower and baker of your recipes here…made a batch of the cookies for an outdoor movie night and then put some aside to make these sandwiches. Used Turkey Hill “Real” Vanilla ice cream with them…they are fantastic!!! I love that I have these little treats in my freezer and that I made them and they didn’t come out of a box. I love how the cookies get softer (even the ones that I think I baked a little too long) being in the freezer.

  5. Can you use the homemade ice cream recipe from your M&M cookies with these or is it too soft?

    1. That ice cream works in these cookie sandwiches- yes!
