For the love of cookies! This is my new favorite recipe that you have to make now. It combines two of my favorite things Chocolate Chip Cookies and Vanilla Popsicles into the same dessert. I love Cookies & Cream so much and here’s proof.
Not only are these Chocolate Chip Cookies & Cream Popsicles fun to make but they are crazy delicious to eat. They are adult approved and kid approved too. It’s perfect for anyone that loves a good ice cream sandwich. So let’s get started making them! Scroll to the bottom for a quick printable version of this Chocolate Chip Cookies & Cream Popsicles Recipe.
First we start with a classic Chocolate Chip Cookie. My biggest tip when making chocolate chip cookies is to use a good quality chocolate. I prefer Ghiradelli chips because you can find them anywhere. But if you can get your hands on Valrhona or Callebaut those would make delicious cookies too.
The other thing that’s important to know about Chocolate Chip Cookies – or any cookie really – is to not overmix the dough. Don’t do it! With any cookie, you only need to mix the dough until the ingredients are blended. If you mix more than that, your cookies will stay fluffy and tall. The cookies will not sink and spread during baking. They will also be dry.
For this recipe, I added a bit of the base to the popsicle mold and froze it, before adding the cookies. This will make your finished popsicles super cute and instead of the cookie being at the very top of the finished pop, it will be the cookie closer to the center of your popsicle.
You could also make this same recipe with other cookies too, like this White Chocolate & Rosewater Cookie that you can find the recipe for here.
I also found these super cute popsicle molds that will make your pops super fun!
A couple of other recommendations about this recipe are one, be sure to use full fat milk. If you are going for a bit of decadent try adding a bit of cream or half and half. That will make your Chocolate Chip Cookies & Cream Popsicles really decadent and ice cream like!
When I can, I always use Homemade Vanilla Extract or replace the extract with Vanilla Bean Paste. Vanilla Bean Paste is a little more expensive but it’s oh so flavorful and delicious.
