Two Sisters, Serial #9 and Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich

Posted on

Remember those ice cream sandwiches from the old days (or the new days–maybe you had one last night)? Well, this ain’t that.

Let’s just start all over and make an ice cream sandwich that’s so kick-butt rich and decadent that you’ll never be satisfied with the old kind again.

For starters, we’ve dusted off our very first Reading and Recipes recipe–XXL Triple Chocolate Cookie–posted way back in April of 2013. Trust me, this is a very very good cookie. You’ve heard of the God particle (maybe you have–if not talk to some of your physics nerd friends). Well, this is the God cookie.

But we didn’t stop there. We searched high and low to find a suitably rich middle for this extravagant outside. And we found this wonderful peanut butter custard ice cream. Not only is it very rich, but it also has that perfect flavor match for chocolate–peanut butter!

Now put that ice cream between these two triple chocolate cookies, and you’ve got something really special. You’ll not look at a plain old ice cream sandwich the same again, but the sacrifice will be worth it!

Speaking of not looking at something the same again, in this week’s story, Two Sisters, Serial #9, each sister catches a secret glimpse of the other that changes everything she thought she knew about the other. Oh, and ice cream makes a cameo appearance in the story, though it’s sure not this Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich. Reading and Recipes didn’t exist back in Brooke and Leah’s adolescence. Who knows what might have become of them if they’d stumbled on this ice cream sandwich? They’ve got enough excitement without that!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich

1 batch XXL Triple Chocolate Cookie

1 cup freshly whipped cream or whipped topping*

3 Tablespoons peanut butter

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

3 ounces sweetened condensed milk (about 1/4 of a can)

pinch of salt (about 1/8 teaspoon)

triple choc cookies

Make the XXL Triple Chocolate Cookie dough according to the directions listed. When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Divide the cookie dough in half to make two cookies.** Roll the cookie dough in your hands to make uniform balls and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes or until they look set. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to completely cool on the cookie sheet.

While the cookies are baking, make the peanut butter ice cream by mixing together the whipped cream, peanut butter, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and salt. Stir these ingredients together until well combined. Cover the peanut butter ice cream and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours, or until the mixture is set. (Note: This ice cream will be the consistency of custard and will never harden like regular ice cream. The ice cream should be set after 2 hours in the freezer.)

When ready to assemble the ice cream sandwich, remove the ice cream from the freezer and stir. Scoop the ice cream onto the underside of one cookie and place the remaining cookie on top. Eat immediately. Cover and store any leftovers in the freezer for up to 1 week.

Makes 1 large ice cream sandwich. Serves 2-4.

*If you prefer to use freshly whipped cream, you will need to beat 1/2 cup whipping cream until stiff peaks form. If you are using whipped topping, make sure the whipped topping is softened and has come to room temperature.

**You can also make 2 smaller ice cream sandwiches by dividing the dough into four cookie dough balls. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set.
