I got a great text from one of my best friends over the weekend:
I received a great text from a friend... Hahaha…xoxo! Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches have got to be one of my top 3 all-time favorite summer treats. For better or for worse, they don’t take very long at all to make (and are devoured almost as quickly) and they’re always such a hit.

I can’t talk about ice cream sandwiches without giving a very proud shout-out to my friend and former co-worker, Claudia Gonzalez, who started the popular Chunk-n-Chip ice cream sandwich truck in LA and Orange County several years ago. She inspires me so much, not only for her insanely good cookie ice cream cookie sandwiches (she calls them “boo-yas” and serves them on soft, warm fresh-baked cookies – best thing ever!) but also for her entrepreneurial spirit. Back in our corporate lives when she and I worked in adjacent cubicles Claudia was just beginning to explore starting a cookie business. She’d come up with the name Chunk-n-Chip. There was so much to learn but she took on each challenge with an open mind and a determination to figure it all out.

Chunk-n-Chip...boo-yah!!

Fast forward seven years, I was glancing over the calendar of another food truck when I saw a date schedule alongside a Chunk-n-Chip truck. “Oh my goodness, she did it!” I exclaimed out loud. The last time I caught up with Claudia and her truck at a local event here in San Diego I joined a huge line of folks waiting for boo-yas. My personal favorite is the Butter My Velvet – peanut butter ice cream sandwiched between two warm red velvet cookies. Boo-ya, indeed! The MBA in me loves to observe passionate people pursue their dreams and become successful…and if they can manage to do it with treats like this, all the better.

Butter My Velvet - my favorite boo-ya!

Because I wanted to flair up my Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches with sprinkles and other accoutrements I froze the cookies to allow everything to remain intact. But – holy cow – do yourself a favor and try one with warm cookies (and a napkin) at least once. Best. Thing. Ever.

I LOVE ice cream and I LOVE cookies so the two together should be heaven. I’m going to try this the next time I make ice cream.

If you’re really intent on having soft cookies and toppings, you could try putting the ice cream in a pan and placing it in the freezer to firm up. Then use cookie cutters to cut out disks and roll them in the toppings. Refreeze and then place them between the soft cookies. I don’t know how well that would work but its something to consider.

Wow, now I REALLY want an ice cream sandwich.

These are a great way to beat the heat!! I had one here in DC yesterday during our record breaking heat wave. Can’t say it made the day cooler, but it did make it better!!! So good :-)

I’ve used slice and bake cookies before. Not as professional but cookies and ice cream are always good.

Ok now this is not a good thing to be reading about at 11:15 at night because I am TOTALLY craving some of these right now. I’m not sure if I should let my kids know about these either…they will be begging for them all the time for sure! But they are definitely going on the “must try” list.
