  • ¾ cup salted butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 16- ounce containers of ice cream choose your favorite flavors!


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a large cooking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, approximately 3 minutes.
  • Add the egg and vanilla, mixing until incorporated.
  • Sift or whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until not dry spots remain. Do not overmix.
  • Divide the dough in half and place each piece between two pieces of parchment paper (dough will be sticky) and roll dough until ¼ inch thick.
  • Cut the dough using a 3.5 inch round cookie cutter or a wide mouth jar. Poke a series of 3 lines of holes using a fork. Place the cookies on the prepare baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-11 minutes or until tops are no longer shiny.
  • Set aside cookies to cool on a wire rack. Cool completely.
  • Using a serrated knife, cut the ice cream (container and all!) into 4 sections.
  • Sandwich ice cream slices between two cookies and peel off ice cream paper.
  • If using sprinkles, roll the edges in sprinkles in a shallow bowl or dredging pan.
  • Cover each individual cookie with plastic wrap or freezer paper and place in freezer until the ice cream is completely frozen before enjoying.
