My favorite dessert growing up was always ice cream and/or cookies which is why the Chipwich was my favorite go-to treat anytime I took a trip to WaWa or run outside for the ice cream truck. It's been a little while since I've had my favorite childhood dessert, but then I was introduced to this Chipwich ice cream cake and it became a quick crowd pleasure amongst my roommates.

Using simple ingredients that you would use to make a normal chocolate chip cookie (and, of course, vanilla ice cream), you can recreate this sweet treat from childhood to enjoy with your friends.

    Spray pans with baking spray and press out dough out in separate pans. If you have a spring pan, use it!
    #SpoonTip: Don't make the dough too thick in the pan. Remember, it will rise when it cooks.

    Bake your cookies at 350°F for 15 minutes then allow your cookies to cool (it helps if you stick them in the fridge). Carefully remove your first cookie from the pan.
