Ice cream sandwiches are a timeless treat loved by people of all ages. One place that has gained quite a reputation for crafting these delectable delights is The Polar Peddler. If you're a fan of their scrumptious ice cream sandwiches and want to enjoy them in the comfort of your own home, you're in for a treat! In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of recreating The Polar Peddler's iconic ice cream sandwich treats right in your own kitchen.

Ingredients You'll Need:

For the Cookies:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet or your preference)
  • Pinch of salt

For the Ice Cream Filling:

  • Your favorite ice cream flavors (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, etc.)
  • Optional: crushed nuts, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, etc. for rolling the edges of the sandwiches


  1. Prepare the Cookie Dough:

    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda, then set aside.
    • In a larger mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until the mixture is light and fluffy.
    • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    • Gradually mix in the dry flour mixture until just combined.
    • Stir in the chocolate chips and a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor.
  2. Forming and Baking the Cookies:

    • Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Make sure to leave enough space between each cookie to allow for spreading.
    • Bake the cookies for about 9-11 minutes or until they are golden brown around the edges but still soft in the center.
    • Once baked, allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Assembling the Ice Cream Sandwiches:

    • Once the cookies are completely cooled, select your desired ice cream flavors.
    • Take one cookie and place a generous scoop of ice cream on its flat side.
    • Gently press another cookie on top of the ice cream to create a sandwich. You can roll the edges of the ice cream sandwich in crushed nuts, sprinkles, or mini chocolate chips for added texture and flavor.
    • If you're not eating the ice cream sandwiches immediately, wrap each one in plastic wrap and place them in the freezer to firm up.
  4. Enjoy Your Homemade Polar Peddler Treats:

    • After a few hours in the freezer, your homemade ice cream sandwiches will be ready to enjoy!
    • Take them out, unwrap, and savor the combination of creamy ice cream and chewy cookies – just like The Polar Peddler's treats.
