Two-toned Chocolate Chip Ice cream Sandwiches

Everyone loves chocolate chip biscuits, especially homemade ones. Personally, I enjoy making them just so I can eat half the mixture in the process. Anyway, I thought I'd show you how easy they are to make and how they can be turned into a scrumptious dessert. 

125g Butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cups Self-raising flour
As many, or as little chocolate chips as you like (I used both white and dark)
1/4 cup cocoa

To make the biscuits...
Cream together butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and beat on high speed until fluffy. On a much lower speed (ensures flour doesn't fly out everywhere), mix in the flour until combined. 

When making the chocolate choc-chip biscuits substitute 1/4 cup of the flour for the 1/4 cup of cocoa and combined. 

Stir in the chocolate chips. Put spoonfuls (make them as big as you like) onto a tray lined with baking paper and press down slightly. Bake at 180 degrees celsius for 8-12 minutes, depending on how crunchy or soft you like them.

Enjoy as is with a nice cup of tea, or...

To make ice-cream sandwiches...
When biscuits are cool, sandwich with any flavour ice-cream you like, I used vanilla but chocolate or strawberry would be nice. Put in the freezer and allow to set...or eat straight away if you can't wait. 

Sandwich with ice-cream for a yummy dessert.
