  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1.5 quarts of your favorite ice cream


  1. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, cream the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture and mix until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until you have a smooth dough.
  5. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a rectangle. Wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  6. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  8. Place the cut-out cookies on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until they are firm to the touch.
  9. Let the cookies cool completely on a wire rack.
  10. Once the cookies are cooled, take a scoop of your favorite ice cream and sandwich it between two cookies. Press gently to adhere.
