These Peanut Butter Mocha Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches are the homemade version of everyone’s favorite childhood ice cream truck dessert…but all done up and dipped in a magic chocolate shell. Each chocolate cookie is crisp on the edges, but soft and brownie-like in the center. The cookies are sandwiched with vanilla cream frosting (just like an Oreo), creamy mocha ice cream, and a swirl of peanut butter. Put everything together and you have an ice cream sandwich that’s chocolatey, creamy, rich, decadent, and so delicious. The chocolate dip at the end just seals the deal. They’re the perfect dessert to keep stocked in the freezer.
It might not even be June yet, but I’m way too excited about all the summertime ice cream treats! And although our weather isn’t quite the warm summer temps I am dying for, my excitement for what lies ahead got the best of me.
So ice cream sandwiches it is…a fun little Friday sweet treat!
And trust me, these are fun! They’re so delicious and my hope is that you will keep your freezer stocked with them all summer long.
So these fun sandwiches hold a bit of a special place in my heart. These sandwiches were one of the earlier recipes I ever shared here on HBH, and I’ve loved them ever since. They were kind of buried away, but with the site’s new re-launch I wanted to bring these sandwiches back, but in an updated way.
It’s crazy that some of the recipes I created years and years ago are still some of my favorites. But gosh, you guys, I really love these ice cream sandwiches.
I first made them back in July 2013 while my family was in Mt. Hood for the summer. How did I think them up? Well, that I don’t know. What I do know is that while this is a decadent ice cream sandwich, it’s also so so worth it!.
How could one go wrong with a homemade Oreo cookie stuffed with rich mocha ice cream and creamy peanut butter?
You just can’t. These. Are. Good!
Let’s talk details – the Oreos
They’re simple. Beat some butter, add ingredients like cocoa powder, then roll the dough out just like you would sugar cookies.
Cut the dough into small circles and bake!Once the cookies have cooled, spread a simple vanilla cream frosting overtop, then sandwich the cookies with your favorite mocha or coffee ice cream.
Now freeze the sandwiches…just to firm the ice cream back up again. Then add a layer of peanut butter to the top cookies and freeze one more time.
And while that’s happening…
Make that magic shell
For the “magic shell”, simply mix melted chocolate with coconut oil until smooth. You now have a “magic shell.” Dip each sandwich into the magic shell.
At this point, you can eat away, or keep them in the freezer to enjoy later. Which yes, you should always have a number of these on hand. Stash them away in the freezer for easy access when in need!
These will take you a little time to prepare, but only because of the freezing. For the most part, I actually found these really easy and fun to make. If you have younger kids, these are definitely something they can help with!
And that’s all I have to say today!
If you take away one thing from all of today’s talk, let it be this… These homemade Oreo ice cream sandwiches will take you back to being a kid. They’re soft and creamy, but with just the right amount of crunch.
And the best part? The flavor is delicious…chocolatey, vanillay, and swirled with notes of coffee, sweet cream, and peanut butter. Simply the best!
