Chocolate Chip Cookies And... ?

Hello Hounders,

A co-worker's birthday is tomorrow and she's not a cake eater. She likes mousse, chocolate chip cookies, and snickers. :)

I've decided to make my chewy chocolate chip cookies but it feels incomplete. Are there any compliments to chocolate chip cookies other than milk? Please advise. Thanks so much!

  1. can you dash out, just before the party and get some good quality vanilla ice cream, in order to make ice cream sandwiches with the cookies?

    *sigh* i wish you worked with me.

      Vanilla ice cream sounds great! My chocolate chip cookies are fairly soft and chewy. I've never tested to see if it can withstand the force of ice cream. I guess we'll just have to find out tomorrow.

      If we were in the same city I would have been happy to send some cookies over! :)

        i'll just fantasize about your ice cream sandwiches tomorrow afternoon, around 4pm, when i'm desperate for something sweet. you've got some very lucky co-workers.

        also, maybe get some other ice cream flavors? i think vanilla will probably let your cookies shine through the most, but strawberry or mint might be nice. i'm no purist, but i think the vanilla sounds the most appealing.

          I agree with the vanilla. It'll best compliment the cookies. Thanks again for the recommendation. :)

            What about chocolate covered strawberries? I know a little unconventional, but you could take the extra chocolate and dip the cookies into it as well (dip half the cookie, sprinkle chopped nuts or something else on it before the chocolate hardens?). Ice cream is always a favorite of mine though!! LOVE ice cream sandwiches!!

              I was thinking of chocolate covered strawberries as well. Does it go with chocolate chip cookies and ice cream?

              1. re: amoretignis

                I think so, it would give your coworkers many options-just assuming that everyone is partaking in the festivities. They could have strawberries and ice cream, or cookies and ice cream, or any certain combinations!! I am soooo hungry for chewy chocolate cookies now!!

                1. re: cocktailqueen77

                  Fantastic! Chocolate chip cookies, ice cream and chocolate covered strawberries it is.

                  Thanks for the priceless feedback!

                    I want to be one of your coworkers too!!!!!! One other idea, although it sounds like you have it more than covered,.... coffee ice cream!

          If you have time, you can freeze the cookies first, add softened ice cream, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze overnight tonight. That way, everyone can have a prewrapped sandwich. Adding the chipwich touch, you can also roll the edge in little chocolate chips.

          1. re: chowser

            Chowser, I like to occasionally roll the edges in crushed pecans, walnuts,or almonds.

      2. Lemonade. Refreshing...

        1. I have rolled warm choc-chip cookies around a 3/4 inch dowel the night before and then filled them with a cannoli filling before service. You may have to modify the cookie recipe so they will thin out and be be crisp enough to hold their shape, but it makes a tasty spin on a traditional dessert.

            Back when I was single, I used to line a mini-muffin tin with chocolate chip cookie dough, then pop in a mini Reese's pb cup in the middle and bake.

              Running with that shot of amaretto could make a B-52 in a rolled up cookie (kahlua, baileys, and grand marnier), don't know how it would turn out but it all sounds good!!

              1. re: cocktailqueen77

                You could make a thick carmel and smear it between 2 cookies. Since she like snickers she most likely loves carmel too... I am going to have to make some of these myself tonight.
