After Christmas I had a lot of left-over chocolate cookies that I couldn't decide what to do with. Normally I frost these with a peppermint icing, but after having already eaten so many like that over the holidays I wanted to do something different with these ones. I decided to make little round mini ice cream sandwiches. A friend of mine would often make little cookie ice cream treats and I thought the chocolate would just be so irresistible. Almost any ice cream flavour would have been tasty, I chose the roasted coconut made by Udder Guy's -- their ice creams are so delicious and are made locally, in the Cowichan Valley.
The only problem with these is you really do have to bite right into them, so it doesn't work well for those with sensitive teeth, such as my beau. Oh well, more for me.
