I told you there was more ice cream coming….

Hot Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwich |

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?

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ice Cream

  • 1 quart homemade or store bought chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream softened

Hot Fudge Sauce


  • Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy, about 3 to five minutes. Add the egg and egg yoke, beating well. Gradually beat in the flour mixture and the 2 teaspoons of water. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cover and place the dough in the fridge for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats.
  • When the oven is preheated drop rounded tablespoon of dough onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 9 to 11 minutes and DO NOT over cook. If anything undercook. Cool completely before stuffing with ice cream.
  • While the cookies cool let the ice cream sit out on the counter to soften and then when the cookies are cool enough turn one cookie over and place one (for a thin ice cream layer) or two (for a thicker ice cream layer) scoops of the ice cream onto the bottom of the cookie. Place the cookies on a baking sheet and place in the freezer while you make the hot fudge sauce. I think these are best eaten the day you assemble them, but they can be kept in the freezer until you are ready to eat them.
  • To make the hot fudge sauce stir together cocoa powder, brown sugar, corn syrup, cream, salt and half of the chopped milk chocolate. Place in a small sauce pan and cook over medium heat, stirring, until chocolate is melted. Cook mixture at a low boil, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat, add remaining chocolate, butter and vanilla and stir until smooth. Any leftover sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container. Reheat over low heat, stirring or in the microwave.
  • Remove the cookies from the freezer and top with the warm hot fudge sauce. Place another cookie on top and press down a little to push everything out a little. Eat immediately.

  5. I always seem to wind up here at your blog when I click through link partys’ most drool-worthy pictures. Yum! Pinning.

  6. Bless his heart. I’m almost thirty with two kids of my own and I still don’t (won’t) eat my vegetables even though I now I should. This on the other hand looks absolutely delicious and I would probably have 3 or 4 all by myself! ;D

  7. Ah-maz-ing. My Monday would be oh-so-much better with one (or six!) of these! 🙂

  8. WOW!! Officially drooling ; ) Pinned!! Happy Memorial Day weekend, Tieghan!

  12. Oh my gosh Tieghan!! Are you even serious with these? The cookies, the ice cream, the homemade hot fudge! Why oh why am I reading this before I go on a run? Now all I want is ice cream and COOKIES!

  13. Beautiful pictures! These look amazing! Chocolate sauce is one of my favorite things to photograph even though it’s a pain in the butt 🙂 it’s just so pretty.

    1. Trust these photos were a pain in the but! It took me forever to get some good ones!
      Thanks so much Jaclyn!

  14. I made hot fudge a few weeks ago and for the pictures, didnt get as creative as you did! And for the eating, well, lots of spoons were used into the jar. Your sammies are gorgeous! And all that melted fudge! Bravo on getting these pics taken in a hurry before it all turned into a mess. I am not a fast shooter and have a hard time with ice cream and frozen stuff!

    1. Oh you have no idea how many sammies I went through to get these shots. Just outside the camera lines was a melty mess!! Trust me these were so hard to shoot, it took forever! Which was obviously not good. I too am the worlds slowest shooter, plus I like to take like 200 photos!

      Thank you so much for your kind words Averie!

  15. WOW. I think that’s the only sensical thought that I can muster right now. Your brother sounds like a funny guy, but seriously. You need to stuff him full of watermelons, oranges and berries, like, STAT! The guy needs to learn to appreciate a good fruit!

    1. Oh my gosh THANK YOU!! I know, the kid is crazy!! Fruit is my favorite thing! I am chopping down on a fresh pineapple as I type, which honestly is not very easy!

      Thanks Georgia!!

  16. The teenage boy in me loves this too 😉 and if I had that metabolism I would eat this every day! I love that you made the cookies and the sauce from scratch, fabulous!

    1. Ha! I know! Those boys eat like horses!

      Thank you so much Jackie! It excites me so much to see your comments! Thank you!

  18. Oh my gooodness, you are killing me! Your pictures are ridiculously fantabulous and I can not wait a second longer to whip up a batch of these!

  19. I keep seeing recipes for homemade fudge- I really want some! By far yours is the best way to eat it!! Love these cookie sandwiches!

  20. Kai sounds like a funny guy…I was like him in my teens…not super interested in healthy food. I think it’s a phase when you’re growing up you just run on fat and sugar…and then you become an adult and things change. Love these ice cream sandwiches!

    1. Ha, yeah I do not think that is the cause for Kai. The kids stubborn, but I am still hoping he’ll change! LOL
      Thank you, Julia!

  21. These are a great summer treat and well worth any mess! 🙂 Keep the ice cream coming!

  22. Absolutely perfect for our get together this week-end. I already have 3 quarts of homemade chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream in the deep freeze, so this post came at the perfect time!

  23. Younger brothers are crazy, but sometimes they are full of crazy awesome ideas like this one!

  24. So funny! And he sounds like my brother! This looks amazing-can’t wait to try your cookie recipe! And I’m definitely interested in your ice cream recipe! Thanks!
