Cookies and Cream Chocolate Ice Cream
Calling all cookies and cream fans. This chocolate ice cream cone is loaded with broken cookies in the ice cream and sprinkled with cookie crumbs in the cone. It’s an Oreo explosion in every bite.
Okay, so you know you’ll need some Oreo cookies. You’ll also need sweetened condensed milk, heavy whipping cream, cocoa and vanilla. But that’s it.
The best part about this recipe is that you don’t need to own an ice cream maker. You can whip everything together in just a few minutes and put in the freezer to firm up.
The ice cream base is plain chocolate with crumbled cookies mixed in. But, feel free to switch up your add-ins for different combinations using your fave cookies or candies. Snickers ice cream anyone?
Once everything is mixed up, pour the mixture in a 9 X 5 loaf pan and freeze. Or use a long and narrow container like the one above. I love it. It’s great for scooping and I usually keep it stored in the freezer when I’m not using it.
Freeze the ice cream for a few hours and it’s ready to enjoy.
If you’re up for it, make your own waffle cones while the ice cream is chilling out in the freezer.
You’ll need a machine for these though.
For the waffle cone batter, I mixed in some melted chocolate and some finely crushed cookie crumbs.
It’s just like making a waffle. A super shallow waffle! (Here’s the machine I used) But then you get to roll and shape them. The fun part!!! And very satisfying.
So cool! Simple things make me happy.
