Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy.
Blend in eggs and vanilla.
Stir together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the butter mixture.
Stir in oats and chocolate chips (if using them). Batter will be stiff.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets, about 2" apart.
Using your hand, gently flatten and shape the cookies into a circle, about ½" thick.
Bake about 12 minutes or until cookies appear to be set.
Cool 1 minute on sheet, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
These cookies are very chewy when first baked, and become somewhat crunchy after a day or so. It depends on how thick you make them. Less than half an inch thick they get crunchy; half inch or more in thickness and they stay kind of chewy.
2 boxes (at least 12 sandwiches) Ice Cream Sandwiches (vanilla, neapolitan, mint or chocolate)
1½ cups cold milk
2 8 oz pkgs Cream Cheese
1 cup chocolate chips
First thing, put a 9"x13" aluminum baking pan in your freezer for at least 30 minutes
Soften the cream cheese in the microwave about a minute; stir until smooth.
Gradually add the milk to the cream cheese and stir. Add the pudding mix and stir until well mixed.
Mix in half the tub of Cool Whip to the pudding mixture.
(You will need to start working quickly from here onward) 🙂
Remove the baking pan from the freezer and unwrap six ice cream sandwiches.
Quickly place the unwrapped sandwiches into the aluminum pan.
Cover the sandwiches with half the pudding mixture. Place the other six (unwrapped) sandwiches on top of the pudding.
If you have any left over pudding, spread it over the 2nd layer of ice cream sandwiches.
Cover the entire cake with the remaining Cool Whip. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
Place in the freezer for at least an hour. Do not put it in the refrigerator or it will get soft. Serve right after removing from freezer.
This is another really easy recipe that tastes really, really good and will have people trying to figure out how you did it. Make sure the aluminum pan stays in the freezer until you’re ready to use it though, or the ice cream sandwiches will melt faster than you can build this cake. You can add more layers by doubling the ingredients for the pudding layer, and adding more ice cream sandwiches.
Melt semi-sweet chocolate in microwave for 1 minute, stir and microwave about 40 seconds more until melted.
Add sugar, melted butter, eggs and vanilla; stir until blended.
Add flour and baking powder, mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop rounded tablespoonfulls of dough on baking sheet, about 2" apart.
Bake until the tops are puffy and shiny. They may develop cracks when done.
Cool 1 minute and transfer to wire rack.
These are the first cookies I baked and gave away. One of the women who tried one told me eating one of these gave her the “Best minute of her life!”. That’s where the name for these cookies came from…
