Going to keep it short and sweet tonight, mostly because it’s kind of hard to type with a Brownie Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich in your hand. But in between bites and with slightly sticky fingers, I’ll fill you in.
This recipe is based on my Extra Thick and Fudgy Brownies, but with an extra cup of flour so that the batter is thick enough to hold it’s shape for a cookie.
The chocolate flavor is right on. I use a tiny bit of coffee extract, which stays hidden but really brings out the chocolate flavor.
In addition to the cocoa powder, I melted semisweet chocolate chips into the batter, but you could do dark if that’s your thing.
This recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies, so you keep some plain and then use the rest to make these Brownie Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Just make sure you freeze the cookies before trying to make them. This makes them hold up better when you are pressing them against the ice cream.
The cookie stays fairly soft even when frozen, so the ice cream doesn’t squish out the back when you bite into it. I know you know what I’m talking about and can appreciate the benefits of a nice soft ice cream sandwich cookie!
Feeling extra fancy? Add some chocolate sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, crushed peanuts… See how many you can stack up before they topple over. Just kidding, that’s something only a crazy lady food blogger would do. Thanks for loving me anyway.

I was looking forward to these. I have to say these were a fail for me. They are too bitter. I am not one who likes super sweet but my kids won’t even eat these they are so bitter. Also mine didn’t come out nearly as fluffy and nic as the ones in the photo. Yes, all my ingredients were fresh as I just bought them.
Hi Elle, I’m a little puzzled at how they could be bitter, especially with chocolate chips and two cups of sugar, but I do appreciate your feedback.
