Tuesday Treats: Cheesecake Sandwiches

I’m a total goner for ice cream cookies. They rank right up there with Sonic Blasts in my summer dessert lists of favorites. Now, the idea of dipping half of a cookie in chocolate? And using cheesecake instead of ice cream? Oh, heck yeah! I’m all over that. 😉

Total Time: 3 Hr. 10 Min.
Prep Time: 10 Min.
Cook Time: 3 Hr.
10 servings

Those frozen cookie sandwiches you had as a kid are all grown up, with cheesecake filling and a dip of rich chocolate. Just like you, evolved for the better.

What You Need
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
20 chocolate chip cookies (2 inch)
1 tub (7 oz.) BAKER’S Milk Chocolate Dipping Chocolate, melted

Let’s Make It
1 – Beat cream cheese and sugar with mixer until blended. Stir in COOL WHIP.
2 – Cover bottom (flat) side of each of 10 cookies with about 2 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture; top each with second cookie to form sandwich. Dip half of each sandwich in chocolate; gently shake off excess chocolate. Place in single layer in airtight container.
3 – Freeze 3 hours or until firm.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1 – Size Wise: With their built-in portion control, these cheesecake sandwiches make great treats!
Tip 2 – Fun Idea: Prepare as directed, rolling or lightly pressing edges of sandwiches in colored sprinkles, miniature chocolate chips, chopped PLANTERS Nuts, BAKER’S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut or small candies before freezing.
Tip 3 – Creative Leftovers: Store leftover chocolate in refrigerator up to 2 weeks. To remelt, follow directions on label. Use as a dip for additional chocolate chip cookies, other varieties of cookies, cut-up fresh fruit or cake cubes.
Tip 4 – Substitute: Substitute 6 squares melted BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate for the tub of dipping chocolate.
My Tip – You can splurge by making home-baked-from-scratch cookies. Or use premade cookie dough. Any cookie that’s sort of soft works, and you don’t have to use just chocolate chip. Sugar cookies work too.

As is my SOP (Standard Operating Procedure), CLICK HERE to check out all the nutritional info over at My Food and Family. So, y’all know there’s a running joke about Hannah being a bad cook… “Excuse me? Running joke? Hannah’s lack of culinary skills is no joke. It’s serious! God knows I love the woman but seriously, she needs to stay out of the kitchen.” This is me rolling my eyes at Mac –> 🙄 I was going to say that even Hannah could make these treats but I’ll reserve judgement. At least until Mac vacates my head space. In the meantime, the heroine who introduced these yummers to the mates happens to be Leigh Daniels, former arson investigator, from NIGHT FIRE. With a sweet tooth and a killer schedule, Leigh learned to make these on the fly. The other Nightrider mates AND the kids love these things. The Wolves? Well, you can twist their arms and they’ll eat one or two… “Or a dozen!” Leigh yells in from the other room. So there you go. Everyone loves these things. If you haven’t read NIGHT FIRE, it’s available lots of places. The cover pic or title links click you over to a univeral page listing all the on-line stores where you can grab a copy. And if you have a copy, now might be a good time to reread it. Just sayin’. So, big question. Do you like “stuffed” cookie sandwiches? 🙋🏼‍♀️
