Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches are fun, easy and make a festive treat for any occasion.
When one of my fellow Food Bloggers told me about the Good Cookie event I knew I had to participate. And the first person I contacted was one of my high school besties.
Ria's daughter, Zoe, gained her angel wings a few days after her 16th birthday after a valiant battle with Ewing's Sarcoma. I thought Zoe's little brother, now a college freshman, could use a care package of cookies. Ria told me that he loved chewy chocolate chip or toffee chip cookies.
On my son's "day on" for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, he helped me to make the cookies: toffee and chocolate chip cookies in heart shapes. Well, they were heart shapes after a little trimming.
I made some Penuche frosting and added more toffee chips to that then sandwiched the cookies together.
Unfortunately, I used all of the frosting I made with the last of my Dixie Crystals powdered sugar, but there were still a few cookies left for my helper.
The remainder became ice cream cookie sandwiches with some festive Valentine's Day sprinkles.
Good Cookie Food Bloggers' Valentine's Event
Cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S. There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now.
Cancer doesn't care that there is an ongoing worldwide pandemic at the moment, children are still being diagnosed with cancer. Which is why we are raising funds to support ongoing pediatric cancer research!
Help us make a difference by donating to Cookies for Kids' Cancer! Our goal is to raise at least $3000 because three amazing companies, OXO, Mediavine and Dixie Crystals, have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000!
That means when we raise $1, it turns into $4!
