What You'll Need
Chocolate Chip Cookies (about 2 to 3 inches in diameter) - homemade or store bought.
unsweetened cocoa powder
avocado flesh (about 3 medium avocados)
bourbon or vodka (optional)
mini chocolate chips (optional)
In a small saucepan, whisk together heavy cream, unsweetened cocoa powder, honey, and granulated sugar. Place over medium heat and cook until sugar is dissolved and cocoa powder is fully incorporated. Transfer to a container with a lid and store in refrigerator until chilled thoroughly - at least 6 to 8 hours. Once chilled, begin on step 2.
In a blender, combine avocado, lemon juice, and whole milk. Blend until smooth.
Add chocolate mixture and blend until thoroughly combined. Mix in salt and bourbon or vodka (helps the ice cream remain scoop-able once frozen).
Pour ice cream mixture into ice cream maker and churn according to directions from manufacturer. Once churned, transfer to a loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap and store in freezer until frozen through - at least 3 to 4 hours.
Once frozen, remove from freezer and let sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes until it is scoop-able. To construct ice cream sandwiches, place one scoop of ice cream - about 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup - on the bottom of one cookie and place the second cookie on top of ice cream scoop. Gently squeeze cookies together. Roll edges of ice cream sandwich in mini chocolate chips. Place sandwiches on a cookie sheet and place in freezer for about an hour to refreeze. Once frozen, wrap each sandwich individually in plastic wrap and store in freezer. Enjoy!
