Ice Cream Filled Chocolate Chip Cookie BitesSome summer days just call for a special treat like these ice cream filled chocolate chip cookie bites! Even though it is called summer vacation, it isn’t always a picnic.

Yesterday morning my friend text me to see if we wanted to meet them at the lake. Since summer has returned for one last hurrah and the temperature was going to hit 90 degrees with high humidity, we said sure! And that is where the problems began. My kid’s goggles were broken, we didn’t have enough bread to make sandwiches for all of us for a picnic lunch, I lost my swimsuit bottoms and so on. We finally got out the door and by this time I had a headache. Although it could’ve been from the crazy morning, I was pretty sure that the headache was caused from my contact being on the opposite eyes. That meant we had to stop by Target to pick up lunch, swimsuit bottoms and contact solution.

Once we were on our way to the lake, I remembered that the main road we needed to take was under construction and we had to take a detour. Eventually we arrived at the lake, my kids jumped out and went to look for our friends. They couldn’t find them so we called and they said they were sitting by the concession stand. We still couldn’t find them so we called again and suddenly it dawned on me that we might be at different lakes. Remember, we live in Minnesota the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”. So, I asked which lake they were at and sure enough I has misread the text message and went to the wrong lake. By that time, it was too late to do anything about it so we stayed put. Our friends spent their day at Lake Minnewashta Regional Park while we spent ours at Lake Minnetonka Regional Park!

Ice Cream ScoopsTo make these Ice Cream Filled Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites, start by making scoops of ice cream and putting them in the freezer to harden. Depending on the freezer, they will need at least 1 hour to harden.

Add Ice Cream ScoopWhile the ice cream scoops are in the freezer, make a batch of chocolate chip cookies. I saved myself some time by using Pillsbury refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough. Allow the cookies to cool and then flatten with a rolling pin. Put one of the ice cream scoops in the center of the flattened cookie. Mine started to melt while I was busy trying to take pictures of it.

Make Cookie BundleWorking quickly, wrap the cookie around the ice cream scoop and press it into a ball.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream BallsPut the ice cream filled chocolate chip cookie balls back in the freezer to harden for 1-2 hours.

Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream BallsReturn them to the freezer to harden and leave them there until ready to serve.

    Oh my goodness Tonia! They look sensational. I’m guessing you didn’t take them with you to the lake? LOL Ten thousand lakes? Really? That sounds amazing. I didn’t know you had that many. I would’ve gone to the wrong one too.
