Peppermint Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich

One of my favorite desserts is a simple dish of peppermint ice cream smothered in hot fudge sauce. It was a very popular dessert during the holidays at Rocky Fork Hunt & Country Club, where I worked for many years. I decided to do a spin off that dessert with our chocolate chip cookies (glazed with a healthy shmear of melted dark chocolate) book-ending a nice big scoop of semi-homemade peppermint ice cream! It’s soooooo good! While it takes a little longer to prepare this one initially- it’s a complete do-ahead dessert that will create big smiles! If you really want to make an impression, wrap each cookie sandwich in white freezer paper and tie it with a ribbon as a sweet edible present for your Sweeties!

Ingredients for 2 sandwiches
  • 4 Éban’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, unwrapped
  • 2 oz Bittersweet or Dark Chocolate
  • 1 pint Peppermint Ice Cream (if you can’t find pre-made, see the note below to make your own)
  • 2 Candy Canes, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp Red Decorating Sugar (optional)


  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or in a microwave being careful not to scorch it).
  2. Turn the cookies with the flat side up onto a piece of parchment paper and spread each cookie with about a tablespoon of the melted chocolate, smoothing it out to the edge of the cookies. Let the cookies sit at room temperature until the chocolate sets.
  3. When the chocolate is set, place a large scoop of ice cream in the center of two cookies then gently but quickly place the other cookie (chocolate side in) on top of the ice cream.
  4. Place both ice cream cookie sandwiches on a small plate or tray and set in the freezer for several hours until the ice cream is firm.
  5. When the ice cream is set, quickly roll the edges of the cookie sandwich in the crushed candy canes mixed with the red decorating sugar.
  6. Place one sandwich in the center of a square of white freezer paper and wrap it tightly, securing the package with a piece of ribbon or twine. Repeat for the other sandwich.
  7. Keep the ice cream cookie sandwiches in the freezer until ready to serve. They can be made a week in advance.
