Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

Good Thursday everyone!! I am practically jumping out of my old computer seat dying to share my latest cookie with you 🙂  A week or so ago as I was making the boys an ice cream shake, I started thinking…..hmmm I wonder how vanilla ice cream would work out  in chocolate chip cookies? Well, can I just tell you it worked, and it’s over the top INCREDIBLE! I used a creamy all natural vanilla ice cream by Breyers. I really think any vanilla ice cream would work just fine.

So, what you’ll taste is a delicious very “vanilla-y” flavored chocolate chip cookie. They are soft and perfect. Can’t wait for you all to try this recipe, it was so much fun creating it. I took like 5000 pictures, bear with me I had to share a ton of them 🙂

Have fun baking!!

Here’s the line up of most of the ingredients. Your basics, plus….ICE CREAM!

How to Make The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cream your butter and sugars as usual.

Mix in your large eggs.

And your pure vanilla.

Here’s where the fun begins, get a nice big scoop of your favorite Vanilla Ice Cream. Measures as a heaping 1/2 Cup.


Our options are endless, can you imagine some other ice cream flavors? Can’t wait to experiment!

Add in your dry ingredients.

And your favorite bag of chocolate chips 🙂

Mix until just combined.

Voila’ ready for the cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 9-11 minutes.

Love it!

    This is such a unique idea! I can’t wait to try these! I have my favorite vanilla ice cream in the freezer so I’m all set…

    Hi..these sounded wonderful and I made them over the weekend. However, when I just scooped my dough on the parchment lined baking sheet…they did not spread at all and look like a mound of cookie dough….the next pan I gently pressed to flaten slightly and they looked “almost” as good as yours. Both tasted great…I wonder why the difference in look, though…any ideas or suggestions?

    Cant wait to try them., we have the best, creamiest locally made arganic ice cream here in my small town in AK. It will be so good! WIll let you know

    I just made these with coffee ice cream & dark chocolate chips! They seem to have turned out wonderful.. waiting on them to cool now for the taste test 😉 thanks!

    This made me feel like a kid again, drooling over cookies which would be placed on a high area wherein we cannot reach and our attempts to get and drool over these yummy cookies. Thanks for this great share.

  6. Camie

    I make these all the time! We keep them in the freezer… because they are ice cream cookies! They never last more than a day though! I do most of my cooking off of your blog, sometimes two things at a time, I just keep my laptop in my kitchen. Let us know when you put out a cook book I want one! Love you blog and all your yummy recipes!

  7. Caroline

    Yum!!! I just made these with Ben & Jerry’s Snickerdoodle Cookie ice cream – DELICIOUS!!!

  8. English

    How much is two sticks of butter? You Americans and your volume measurements, I just don’t get it.

  9. Shelley

    Oh my gosh, I just made these, and they are soooo good! They look just like the picture and taste great! I used Extra Creamy Vanilla, and they definitely taste like both chocolate (from the chips) and vanilla (from the ice cream) at the same time.

    btw, these look delicious. but i made these just like your recipe and i don’t know how yours came out like that with 4 cups of flour. mine came out looking like cake balls. not even edible. i’m gonna cut he flour considerably and try again. just wondering if anyone else had the same problem.

    Would this work with a brownie recipe? What substitutions would need to be made if you used a boxed brownie mix? Or one from scratch? They look awesome!

  12. Gabby

    Just made these with Butter Pecan — they look perfect, will be having a nibble in a bit. Thanks for the fun idea!

  13. Katrina

    I just made these. I only used 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla. And I used Cookie Dough Ice Cream (that’s what we had and I figured it certainly couldn’t hurt these cookies!). They are great! They are perfectly soft, but not cakey and look exactly like yours.
    Thanks, Jenny.

  14. Dana

    Made these at a 1st grade baking party and they were AMAZING!! The kids wanted chocolate ice cream and it totally worked. SO YUMMY!

    1. Jenny

      So glad to hear the cookies were a hit! I bet they were great with Chocolate ice cream :O) Thanks for sharing!

  15. shruti

    hey,, looks yummm!!! wanna try it asap , but i have a query, can u tell me how much quantity is 1 stick of butter..

  16. patsyk

    What a great brain-storm! I never would have thought to use ice cream in a cookie… it has to be over-the-top amazing!

  17. Tina

    I made these with the same ice cream you had, and they were DELICIOUS!!!!! They were gone fast, and so I made MORE!!!! Thanks for a great recipe!

  18. ivoryhut

    Oh my. Those look so moist! I guess it should work, since ice cream is, at its simplest, milk, cream, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. I can’t wait to try this! Tracy and I have the same idea: a coffee ice cream version. I can almost taste it!

  19. megan

    Those pictures are priceless. I would love to have some pictures like that hanging in my kitchen. Too cute!!! The cookies look and sound fantastic. Thumbs up!

  20. Natalie (The Sweets Life)

    what a GREAT idea–so glad you decided to experiment!!! I can’t wait to try this!!

    How FUN!!! You would never run out of combinations! And you pictures are darling…I think I *would* like some cookies with fudge sauce, please! 🙂
