    These soft chewy cookies are the perfect consistency when frozen for ice cream sandwiches. They are also delicious on their own.

    Cake Mix Cookie Recipe

    1 box Devil’s Food Cake Mix (I like Duncan Hines or Aldi’s Store brand best)

    1/2 cup vegetable oil

    2 eggs

    1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional for ice cream sandwiches but a must for the cookies without ice cream)

    Mix together dry cake mix, 1/2 cup oil and 2 eggs. Stir in chocolate chips. I use a cookie scoop to make the balls. This recipe makes 20 cookies.

    Bake cookies at 350 for about 11-13 minutes (Cookies are soft). Chill cookies completely before making ice cream sandwiches —-otherwise they are heavenly warm!

    How to make homemade ice cream sandwiches

    To make ice cream sandwiches, take your favorite 1/2 gallon ice cream in a block and slice it into about 1 inch slices.

    Using a glass the same diameter of your cookie cut out a circle of ice cream

    Immediately place ice cream disc between two cookies and freeze!

      Trader Joes now has chocolate cake mix with no weird ingredients in it. I always feel crazy after I eat Duncan Hines or Aldi's

      Oh....these look sooo good! I've made big chocolate chip cookies and put homemade ice cream between them...but I would much rather make these...less kitchen time (I think/I hope) : )
