This ice cream sandwich recipe is not only easy to make, it is also extremely tasty. From Food52's Yossy Arefi and featured on Refinery29, the Chocolate and Olive Oil Ice Cream Sandwiches also combine two slightly unusual flavors.
The recipe is undertaken in two parts: first the gelato, and then the cookies. The gelato features olive oil and cacao nibs, where as the cookies require ingredients such as bittersweet chocolate, dark rye flour, muscovado or dark brown sugar, vanilla extract and flaky salt to sprinkle on top.
The ice cream sandwich recipe focuses on the quality of the cookie, rather than the ice cream. This might seem counter-intuitive to some, but store-bought varieties usually freeze too hard. Yossy prefers cookies with brownie-like texture.
