Ice Cream Sundae Cookies

Ice cream sundaes are the circus of the dessert world.  They have a ton of stuff going on all the time, bring a smile to everyone’s face, and are totally entertaining.  Colorful sprinkles, milky chocolate, crunchy waffle cones, cool ice cream, creamy whipped cream, salty peanuts and tart cherries… it’s a circus of sweets!  I love all of the textures – crunchy nuts and waffle cones, creamy chocolate and ice cream, sticky whipped cream and fudge. With all of the amazing flavors, I knew I could put them together into a super fun cookie!  Make these and enjoy them as much as I have!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla (yes, this uses a lot of vanilla to get that ice cream flavor)
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 bag mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (you can always use regular size, but these are more fun)
  • 12 waffle cones (sugar cones) (crushed)
  • 1 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • Marshmallow Fluff or Creme
  • Salted peanuts (or any nut you prefer) (chopped)
  • Maraschino cherries

Make them:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  These will cook at a hotter temp. for a shorter period of time, so that everything bakes, but doesn’t necessarily melt all the way. We want those sprinkles to show up! 🙂

Cream the butter and sugars until they are light and fluffy.  Add the eggs and vanilla.

In another bowl, mix the flour, salt and baking soda with a whisk.  Gradually add this to your creamy mixture.

Now comes the fun!  Crunch up those ice cream waffle cones in a plastic bag by beating the crap out of them with a rolling pin.  You want the consistency to be what you find at the bottom of a chip bag – some larger pieces mixed with crumbs and dust.  Pour that into the dough.  Throw the chocolate chips and sprinkles in there and mix, mix, mix.  This is a very coarse, thick dough that is also crumbly because it has so much going on.

Using your cookie scoop (this is my favorite that I use every time I make cookies), scoop out balls about 1 inch big.  I made these two ways:  1 scoop or 2 scoops.  I prefered the larger, 2 scoops option.  Plus, every sundae needs at least 2 scoops of ice cream, right?  So use your cookie scoop to get two balls, then roll those into one, big, smooth ball in your hands.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. You’ll fit about 6 double scoops or 8 single scoop cookies on the sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes (or until golden brown).  Let them sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool. Cool completely before the next step.

Once cooled, plop about a teaspoon of Marshmallow Fluff on top of each cookie. If the cookie isn’t cooled, the Fluff will spead, so you’ll need to put a little less of it on each cookie so it isn’t completely covered in Fluff. Sprinkle with nuts and top with cherry.  Violá!  It’s an ice cream sundae cookie!
