Gluten-Free Brownie Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

May 7, 2021

These gluten free ice cream sandwiches made with homemade brownie cookies are the most delicious treat for a hot summer day. They are made with the best ever soft, chewy, and gluten and dairy-free brownie cookies, and filled with vanilla bean ice cream (or dairy-free frozen ice-cream dessert).

These are the perfect summer barbeque treat or treat to help you cool off on a hot summer day. Keep them right in the freezer and pull one out when you are ready to eat it. They taste like a mix between a store-bought ice-cream sandwich and a hot-fudge brownie sundae.

These brookie ice-cream sandwiches are so easy and each step can be thrown together quickly. You will need to leave some time in between baking the brownie cookies and creating the sandwiches in order for the cookies to cool off and not melt the ice cream. Once they are finished you will be begging for more!

Tips for Success

*To make this recipe dairy free for our family, I used Kirkland’s (Costco’s) brand of dairy free chocolate chips, Country Crock Plant Butter, and simple truth vanilla bean almond milk dessert. You can substitute any of these items out for any other dairy-free substitutes and they should still end up delicious!

*To make this recipe gluten-free we made our brownie cookies with a gluten-free 1-1 baking flour. Our favorite kind is King Arthur brand. This comes with xanthan gum ready in it. If you use gluten-free flour without xanthan gum you will need to add it when baking these.

*After making the cookies, be sure to let them cool completely before adding the ice cream. This will ensure that the ice cream doesn’t melt immediately when put on the cookies.

*To store the ice cream sandwiches, wrap in plastic wrap and put in an airtight container. When ready to eat pull out the of the fridge, unwrap, and let sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes until soft enough to eat.

These are the perfect summer barbeque dessert. They are so delicious after a hot day in the sun. Simply make them ahead of time and pull them out of the freezer when you are ready to serve them. Don’t let them sit around too long without eating (if you can) or they will melt quickly!
