I scream, you scream, we all scream for donut ice cream sandwiches!!! That’s right, today we’re showing you how to make a donut chipwich! You know those Toll House ice cream sandwiches that come in a yellow package that you can get at any deli?? I used to eat those like crazy when I was younger, so I’m having some serious nostalgia for today’s post. Using the chipwich as inspiration, we decided to take it to the next level with chocolate chip donuts instead because pretty much everything is better with donuts. I apologize in advance for the lack of photos on this post, if you’ve ever photographed ice cream in Summer before, you’ll understand haha! Andddd if you didn’t know, National Ice Cream Day is on July 15th, so these would be the perfect treat!
2 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Vanilla ice cream
1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your heart-shaped donut pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, mix vanilla, eggs, milk, and butter. Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
3. Put the batter into a piping bag and pipe 1/2 of the way full into your heart-shaped donut pan. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack until completely cooled.
4. Once the donuts are cooled, cut them in half and scoop vanilla ice cream into the middle of the two halves. Place the ice cream sandwiches back into the freezer for 1-2 hours to allow the ice cream to harden back up before serving!
If we used donuts for this does that mean you can eat them for breakfast??? Not pictured is us devouring them as soon as these pictures finished because they were totally melting all over the table! Ha! What are some other ways we could reinvent the traditional ice cream sandwich? Let us know below!
