  • Flour- All-purpose flour is needed for this recipe, but feel free to substitute with gluten-free!
  • Baking Powder- The most important note here is to make sure that it is not expired and your baking powder is fresh!
  • Cocoa Powder- For this recipe, I used a mix of cocoa powders so anything goes here, just use an unsweetened quality brand.
  • Instant espresso- I use a Starbucks packet of instant coffee but you can certainly use whatever you can find in your grocery store.
  • Dark Chocolate- Please buy a quality dark chocolate bar. It will leave you with delicious puddles of chocolate in our cookies and adds a delicious bitterness that helps combat the sweetness in the ice cream. I use 60% dark in this recipe!
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk- This recipe calls for a 14oz can.
  • Heavy Cream- Heavy cream is needed for the ice cream.
  • LorAnn Oils Vanilla Bean Paste– LorAnnOils Vanilla bean paste makes this recipe taste and feel like a gourmet treat. I always say that this product is liquid GOLD and I use it in everything! Get yours here!

Tips for making Chocolate Coffee Cookie Sandwiches 
  1. Make this recipe the night before you plan to assemble the sandwiches so assembly is a breeze and your ice cream will have plenty of time to harden in the freezer.
  2.  Do not overbake the cookies, instead allow them to fully cool and store them in an air-tight container until you are ready to assemble your sandwiches.
  3. Make sure everything is room temperature before you start baking to ensure the cookies come out perfectly in texture and flavor.
  4. You can assemble the cookie sandwiches and wrap them individually with parchment paper. They can be frozen fully assembled and enjoyed at anytime

  • 2 TBS LorAnn Oils vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup Caramel Sauce (optional)


For The Chocolate Coffee Cookies 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350*F, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. Divide  8oz of dark chocolate and heat on low in the microwave in 15-second intervals to melt. Allow chocolate to cool on the counter slightly.

  8. Roughly chop the rest  dark chocolate and pour it into a bowl
  9. Scoop cookie dough balls about 1in” each
  10. Roll the dough ball through the chopped chocolate and place them on a baking sheet about 2” apart
  11. Gently flatten the cookies to the size that you would like your sandwich to be as these cookies will not spread very much when baking.

For the No-Churn Ice Cream

  1. Line 2 (9×5) loaf pans OR 1 (8-inch) square baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Watching closely the butter will start to foam, allow it to simmer for 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally. Once the butter has turned a deep golden brown immediately remove it from the heat. set the butter aside to cool until room temperature.
  3. Pour the heavy cream, brown sugar, and vanilla bean paste into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat at high speed scrapping the bowl every so often until soft peaks form for about 3 minutes.
  4. Turning the mixer back on low slowly pour the condensed milk into the whipped cream and mix until everything is just combined
  5. Swirl the browned butter ( and caramel sauce if desired) into the whipped cream and then pour the entire mixture into 2 (9×5) loaf pans OR 1 (8-inch) square baking pan.
  6. Freeze for 6 hours or until firm.


  • Once the ice cream is firm and chilled, scoop out a generous scoop onto a cookie and sandwich it together with another cookie.
  • Add a drizzle of chocolate and top with chocolate-covered espresso beans for an over-the-top look!
