  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray or use a silicone baking sheet like we do.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until they are fluffy and light. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a another medium mixing bowl.
  3. Add the dry flour mixture to your egg mixture in the mixing bowl and mix until almost fully combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir until combined.
  4. Put about 1 teaspoon of cookie mix onto your prepared baking sheet. Space them around 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 9-12 minutes until golden brown. Place cookies on a cooling rack until completely cooled.
  6. While cookies are cooling, use an ice cream to scoop about 1/2 cup of ice cream. Use plastic wrap and drop the ice cream. Do this for the amount of sandwiches you plan to make. Place another sheet of plastic wrap over the ice cream, smash to about an 1 1/2 inches thick and freeze for at least 20 minutes.
  7. Remove ice cream from freezer and assemble your ice cream sandwiches. Add googly eyes and you are finished. Eat or freeze.
