Editor’s Note: With my kids’ elementary school graduation and dance and piano recitals coming up, this week is going to be busy! So today, I am re-sharing a favorite recipe of mine — semi-homemade chocolate chip cookie chipwiches! (I say semi-homemade because the ice cream is store bought.) I served these last year for my daughters’ 10th birthday, and the chipwiches were a hit!
My twin daughters recently celebrated their birthday. For their birthday, I’ve done almost every kind of cake for them so far, so when I invited their grandfather and aunt over the other day for a mini birthday celebration, I decided to do something different — “homemade” chipwiches! (You’ll see why I put “homemade” in quotes later!) My semi homemade chipwich recipe is super easy!
To make the chipwiches, I purchased M&M chocolate chip cookies from my local grocery store’s bakery — they are quite good! Normally, I would make my own cookies, but I was running short on time the day of their mini party!
To prepare the chipwiches, all I did was spread Breyer’s mint chocolate chip ice cream between the cookies, and voila — declicious chipwich cookies! The cookies wound up costing me less than what pre-made chipwiches (from the grocery store’s freezer department) would have cost, and by making the chipwiches myself, I was able to customize the chipwiches exactly to what my daughters like by adding the mint chocolate chip ice cream. I made the chipwiches in the morning and stored them in glassware until the party.
My guests were suprised by the chipwiches (they were expecting cake), but I have to say that everyone thoroughly enjoyed their chipwich — especially my daughters!
Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
If i did have the time the day of my girls’ mini party, I would have made “The Very Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever” recipe from “The Greatest Cookies Ever” cookbook by Rose Dunnington. Every cookie I bake from that cookbook comes out great! This is the recipe:
