My parents never met a sale they didn't like. Their motto was basically "Why pay full price when you can buy it on sale, used, or secondhand?"
Brand names weren't a thing in my house. We grew up on generics for everything, from our shoes to our potato chips.
There were two things my mom splurged on, however-- Oberweis Dairy milk and Keebler Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies.
It was always a thrill when you were the one unloading the grocery bags in the kitchen, when you saw that red package peeking out of one of the paper bags. "SOFT BATCH COOKIES!" we would yell to the other kids.
They rarely lasted more than a day.
Well, what's old is cool again, and for the first time in my adult life, I picked up a package of Keebler Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies from Fry's Food and Drug (a Kroger banner store) for MY kids,
this time in a cool yellow package.
My kids are way more spoiled than I was. Packaged cookies and treats are no big deal to my kids. So I don't think they were all that excited. But once I told them my plan to make them into delicious ice cream sandwiches, we were all suddenly starving for cookies!
First up, you need to make your no-churn vanilla chocolate chip ice cream. This is super easy to do, but it takes a bit of time to freeze up.
Mix 2 cups heavy whipping cream in a stand mixer or with beaters until stiff peaks form.
Carefully stir in 1 tbsp vanilla extract, a 14 oz can of sweetened, condensed milk, and 2 cups of mini chocolate chips. (Regular or chunk chocolate works too!)
Put into a loaf pan or other container and cover tightly. I save old plastic ice cream tubs so I put mine in those.
Freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight for firmer ice cream.
Once your ice cream is ready, open your Soft Batch cookies. Place a small scoop of ice cream on the flat side of one cookie,
then place another cookie on top and flatten slightly.
Place cookie sandwiches on a tray in the freezer and freeze for about an hour. Then enjoy your sandwiches and wrap any leftover in cling wrap.
This is the perfect way to enjoy an old favorite in a new way- and perfect for the summer heat!
