1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
11/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
11/2 cups candy- coated chocolate pieces
Ice cream (about 2 cups)
1. Beat butter, brown sugar and sugar with an electric mixer 4 minutes or until creamy.
2. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in candy-coated chocolate pieces until combined. Drop mixture by tablespoonful onto greased aluminum foil or parchment paper lined baking sheets (I flattened mine with a fork or pushed them down with my fingers.) My first batch came out too rounded when I did not do this.
3. Bake, in batches, at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and place on wire racks to cool (about 15 min.)
4. Place a small scoop of ice cream between 2 cookies and gently press together. Serve immediately or wrap in aluminum foil and freeze until ready to serve.
