Made with chewy homemade Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Is doesn’t get much better than ice cream sandwiches in the summer! Made with chewy homemade coconut oatmeal cookies, creamy vanilla bean ice cream sandwiched in between and finished with a bit of melty chocolate. Make sure you save room to enjoy one of these after your outdoor dinner!

This is my second time making these sandwiches in the last couple weeks and I feel like I’m finally ready to share them! Though there weren’t any complains about the first batch (husband almost enjoyed all of them himself) I felt that the cookie portion could be a bit better. I decided to try out Lil’ Luna’s Recipe for Easy Coconut Oatmeal Cookies and they worked out perfectly! So chewy and the perfect amount of coconut flavour, I didn’t change the recipe too much aside from not using quite as much sugar (only because I ran out) and I found I didn’t need as much flour. Although that could be completely different for you, so keep some aside too to add in if you find the dough mixture is too wet!

How to Make these Cookies

When I finally wrote out the instructions for these ice cream sandwiches I thought whoa, that’s kind of overwhelming. I promise though that aside from actually baking the cookies, it’s really not that complicated and there’s just a bit of back and forth from the freezer to make sure everything is ready for the next stage. Completely do-able and definitely worth it though!

Here’s a short and sweet of how it will go:

  • Mix and bake cookies
  • Allow cookies to completely cool
  • Use cookies and ice cream to create the sandwich portion
  • Allow cookies to freeze so they stay together well
  • Make melted chocolate mixture
  • Dip and drizzle ice cream sandwiches
  • Place back in freezer
  • Remove and enjoy!
