I recently found a brand of ice cream that I cannot live without.. it’s called Cool Haus.  They have flavors like Milkshake & Fries, Balsamic Fig & Mascarpone and Street Cart Churro Dough.. I always get the Dirty Mint Chip!  Why is it called Dirty Mint?  Because the pint has fresh mint leaves in every bite.  This is what makes it super unique and tasty!  Cool Haus also sells ice cream cookie sandwiches, but I decided to make a cookie to match their Dirty Mint Chip ice cream.  I put fresh mint in a chocolate chip cookie!  The combination is just perfect.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. With an electric mixer, cream softened butter and light brown sugar together until fluffy.
  3. Add vanilla and one egg at a time, mixing after each addition.
  4. Add chopped mint and mix until combine.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine Kodiak Cakes mix or flour, salt and baking soda.
  6. Add in flour mixture in thirds, mixing after each addition.
  7. Fold in salted dark chocolate pieces.
  8. Disperse cookie dough (about 1 & 1/2 Tablespoon per cookie) onto a greased baking sheet – I fit 12 cookies on a sheet.
  9. Bake for 8-9 minutes or until desired crispiness – I like mine softer, so I tend to under-bake them.  If you want them crispier, bake for 10-11 minutes.
  10. While cookies cool on a cooling rack, make your melted chocolate to dip your sandwiches.
  11. In a small, microwave-safe bowl, add dark chocolate chips and melted coconut oil.
  12. Microwave your chocolate and coconut oil for 30 seconds – 1 minute.
  13. Stir until chocolate is smooth.
  14. Once your cookies are cool, make your ice cream sandwiches!  Scoop desired amount of ice cream and sandwich it in the middle of two cookies.
  15. Dip 1/2 of your sandwich in melted chocolate and sprinkle with sea salt.
  16. Let chocolate harden on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet.
  17. Place in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes and serve!
