The ice cream is a creamy mango flavour, swirled through with raspberry. To make the cookies I followed a Double Chocolate Cookies recipe I’ve made before, but added dark chocolate chips instead of white chocolate, and I doubled the recipe to allow for sandwiching!
I creamed together 350g light brown sugar and 150g butter. I then added 2 eggs and 2 tsp vanilla extract and whisked in.
I melted 300g dark chocolate in a glass bowl over gently simmering water.
I added 200g self raising flour and 50g cocoa powder to the mixture, followed by the melted chocolate, and mixed well.
I then added a packet of dark chocolate chips and folded them in. I chilled the mixture for 30 minutes in the fridge.
Using my hands I made small balls out of the mixture and flattened them before placing them on a lined baking tray.
I baked them on 180C/350F/Gas 4 for 12 minutes. I let them cool for 10 minutes on the tray before moving them to a cooling rack.
Once the cookies are fully cool, I loaded one up with Häagen-Dazs Mango & Raspberry ice cream and sandwiched another on top. I also added some fresh raspberries. Wow these were certainly decadent!
You have no choice but to dig right in! The fruity mango & raspberry ice cream is the perfect filling between the dark chocolate cookies. These are a indulgent dessert to end a meal, or a sweet summertime snack. Not that you need hot weather to eat ice cream, I certainly don’t!
NB. Häagen-Dazs sent me a voucher to purchase the ice cream. All opinions are my own.
