These easy Christmas Ice Cream cookies take baked Christmas cookies to a whole new level! Combine Chocolate Peppermint cookies with mint ice cream.
Here is Los Angeles there is a little place called Diddy Riese. They sell ice cream sandwiches for $1.50 and the line is always outside the door and around the corner. People love that they can choose which cookie and ice cream they want for their sandwich and that it’s so stinking cheap. Not to mention they are so yummy!
I thought about making my own ice cream sandwiches for Christmas this year and these festive treats are sure to be a crowd pleaser! You start by making double chocolate peppermint cookies and end by combining them with your favorite flavor of ice-cream (personally I like to stick to holiday flavors like peppermint and mint chip).

With Christmas around the corner you’re probably on the hunt for more Christmas recipes. I’ve got quite a few after years of experimenting and creating the best holiday flavors. I love these baked Christmas donuts and you can never go wrong with Ranch Buffalo Holiday Mix.
