How’s your summer going so far? Are you staying cool? Tiffany put together an awesome round-up to keep cool that you definitely need to check out if you haven’t already. I’m wishing I could eat every single one of those frozen treats! And today, I’ve got another frozen treat for you to try – an M&M oatmeal cookie ice cream sandwich!
But these aren’t just any ordinary oatmeal cookie – they are stuffed with miniature M&M’s. Regular-sized M&M’s can absolutely be substituted; I just like the way that miniature ones look. There is also plenty of chocolate chips in this dough! The husband could not get enough of these cookies. In fact, he said they were the best oatmeal cookies he’d ever had. And that’s quite a compliment from this guy. He sure knows his way around cookies!
Sandwiched in between the two cookies I used vanilla ice cream, but you could get creative and fill it with a different flavor and one you think would go well with oatmeal chocolate chips cookies.
Next time, I’m trying chocolate 🙂
These cookies are ultra soft and don’t take long to make, you just need to make sure they are completely cooled before sandwiching the ice cream in between. Unless you don’t mind eating the warm cookies with ice cream in a bowl – that always makes for a delicious treat.
Sometimes I’ll even cook the dough in a small ramekin and top it right out of the oven with ice cream to make a miniature pizookie! So many good ways you can use this recipe. Enjoy!
