Melt Proof Sweet Ice Cream Sundaes

It’s Labor Day weekend and we’re heading to a lakeside beach to celebrate. Ordinarily, ice cream sundaes are the perfect dessert to mark the unofficial end of summer. However, the hot sun and sand aren’t quite favorable for the frozen stuff. We’ve created a new twist on this summer favorite, Ice Cream Sundae Cookies! We start with our preferred cookie recipe, mix in ice cream sundae toppings and broken pieces of waffle cones, and top it off with hot fudge drizzle. They are the ultimate beach friendly treat! Rest, relax, and most definitely indulge!

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 3/4 cup Butter Flavored Crisco Stick
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together Crisco, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla using an electric mixer. Beat in egg until well combined.

Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together into a separate mixing bowl. With mixer on low speed, carefully add flour mixture 1/4 cup at a time until a soft dough forms. Add chocolate chips, Oreos,  Heath, M&Ms, and waffle cone pieces to dough, stirring by hand.

Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough 3 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet after removing from oven, and transfer to a wire rack to allow cookies to cool completely. Once cool drizzle hot fudge on top of cookies.
