I told you there was more ice cream coming….
Except this one I can’t take credit for.
Ok, well I did make it, but the idea behind it was my picky no vegetable, no fruit, no fish-eating teenage brother.
Malachi or Kai or even Malachi John as I call him when he is annoying the heck out of me.
He is seventeen and loving every second of life. Well actually, he is probably not loving those seconds he spent in the hospital over the years for a broken femur, a hip replacement, broken foot, wrist and collar-bone. No, I am guessing he did not love those seconds, but he is a seasoned pro at that stuff and is honestly THE toughest kid you will ever meet.
No seriously, you do not even want to know the stuff the doctors have done to him. So painful.
Anyway, Kai has very few foods that he will actually eat. Granted with age he is getting better, but the kid has still never eaten a piece of fruit. Like no watermelon, no strawberries, no bananas, no blueberries. Nothing. Unless you count fruit rolls up and fruit snacks which I am guessing most people don’t.
Someday I will get a piece of fruit down the kids throat. Wait now that I think of he actually did eat a mango, but it was pureed into BBQ sauce and the second he found ou there was a mango in the he was done eating. The kid is a freak.
But I love him and his crazy idea that is so insane, so over the top and just plain awesome.
See here’s the foods that Kai does love: Cookie dough, steak, potato chip chicken, tacos, ribs, buffalo chicken, hamburgers, cheesy potatoes, rice, corn (the ONLY vegetable the kid will touch), cookies, ice cream, k-bars, and more cookie dough.
Yeah, super healthy right? See a possible connection between all those broken bones, that’s what my mom keeps trying to get him to see.
I think his very favorite dessert though is cookie dough. The kid loves it and I always save a giant bowl because well again this kid is awesome and honestly he is so nice, and remember he is seventeen and he’s a guy and he’s pretty good-looking. The three don’t normally combine to make a nice young man. Did I just say young man? Oh my gosh what is happening to me?
But honestly, he is.
I don’t normally ever go to Kai looking for recipe ideas, but one day I was desperate and asked him.
At first he gave NOTHING good. Basically he just wanted some cookie dough. Then he started turning his wheels and then all of a sudden he said, “Oh, I know what you should make. Cookie dough ice cream sandwiches with chocolate chip cookies and hot fudge sauce!”. The he said, “Damn, I am good.”
And he is. Cause these are amazing.
I was kind of like, ah what? What did you just say?
Where the did that come from? Then I thought, that is actually an awesome idea. Really awesome.
Oh and then the cookie dough ice cream?
It doubles the cookie action + ice cream + hot fudge sauce and it is killer!
Especially the homemade fudge sauce and cookies. Oh my gosh, best thing ever. I used my mom’s cookie recipe she has used since before I was born. It never fails and it is perfect for this ice cream sandwich. Then the fudge sauce, well that just literally covers this whole ice cream sandwich with love. Just make it, it take five minutes and is SO much better than the stuff from the jar.
For the ice cream I used a simple vanilla base and then stirred in the balls of cookie dough. If you guys are interested in the recipe let me know and I will post it soon, It gives me another excuse to make it anyway!
Like I need an excuse. Otherwise just go for the store-bought! Malachi (Kai) is weird and prefers it but it does make the recipe super quick and easy! .
You really need to try to make this happen this weekend. I mean it is the unofficial start to summer after all, and what better way to kick it off than a delicious chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream sandwich?
What a great treat after a day of being out in the warm sunshine!
