Beat the heat with these too-good-to-be-true ice-cream sandwhiches.

Ingredients

Must freeze overnight.
  • 12 Sephra Chocolate Chunk Cookies (see below)
  • 1/2 gallon ice cream (any flavor)
  • Various toppings (sprinkles, nuts, chocolate, etc.)
Sephra Chocolate Chunk Cookies
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups Sephra chocolate chips or chunks

Preparation

Cream the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and mix. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, soda, and salt, and add to the sugar mixture. Stir in the chocolate chunks. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F for 8-12 minutes. Do not over-bake; cookies work best when softer.

Bake cookies according to recipe above. After cookies have cooled, scoop desired amount of softened ice cream onto bottom of cookie. Press another cookie on top of the ice cream with the bottom facing in. Trim the ice cream around the edges of the cookie with a hot knife until it is even. Wrap individual sandwiches in tin foil and freeze for 1 hour. Remove sandwiches and roll ice cream edges in topping of your choice. Rewrap in foil and freeze overnight.

Before serving, dip sandwich halfway into melted Sephra Premium Dark Chocolate. Let set for 1-3 minutes in the refrigerator.

Yield: 6 sandwiches
