Chocolate Sea Salt Cookie & Dulce De Leche Ice Cream Sandwiches

The niece and nephew were coming over. And of course my first thought was, What the heck do I make for them? My niece Ana, only eats sugar, peanut butter, and sometimes I have seen her eat Jello. So I decided on a frozen cheese pizza and ice cream sandwiches. I want to be the cool aunt, not the aunt that gives them quinoa. But to be perfectly honest, I am also the lazy aunt who doesn’t want to go to the grocery store. So I started pouring over recipes online to find something that I had all the ingredients for…and surprise surprise the lovely Jaclyn had something that fit exactly what I was looking for. Out of laziness, desperation, and a freezer full of Häagen-Dazs, the Chocolate Sea Salt Cookie & Dulce De Leche Ice Cream Sandwiches were born.

These Ice Cream Sandwiches Are The Perfect Combo Of Salty And Sweet

Perfection. I mean it. I could eat these every day for the rest of my life and be 600 pounds happy. If you are a salty-sweet person, these are for you. The dark chocolate combined with sea salt and dulce de leche ice cream? You couldn’t find a better combination. While you could make your own ice cream, I personally believe that you can not make a better version than Häagen-Dazs’ Dulce De Leche. I have tried. Twice. And both times I wished I had spent the money on a pint of Häagen-Dazs instead of all the cream for homemade. It’s just so good.

And if you wanted to top them with some more Dulce De Leche…I would totally understand.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 33 minutes


  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces 70% chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup dutch process cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • large-flake sea salt for topping
  • 1 pint Häagen-Dazs Dulce De Leche ice cream


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate and butter. Microwave in 20 second increments until chocolate and butter are melted, and stir to combine. Transfer chocolate mixture to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla; mix on medium speed until combined. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture.

Roll 2 (heaping) tablespoons worth of dough between hands to create dough balls that are 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Place cookie dough balls two inches apart on baking sheet. Sprinkle tops of cookies with large-flake sea salt.

Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes, or until tops are crackled and cookies have spread out a bit. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cooled, place a heaping amount of Dulce De Leche Ice Cream in the center of one cookie. Using a spatula (or back of a spoon) flatten the ice cream to reach the edges. Place another cookie on top. Once all cookies are assembled, place in freezer for an hour to firm up. At this point, either eat them, or wrap them individually with saran wrap and then place in an airtight container. They will keep in the freezer up to 1 month.

    These look insanely good! I’m a huge fan of dulce de leche and have been spooning it into my mouth since I was an infant, but I’m always looking for new ways to use it in baking. This looks like the perfect use, especially with summer right ahead. Thanks for the recipe!

    Oh, my. These look fab. It reminds me of when I used to hang out with my “cool aunt” and she would make us Coke Floats. Ah, the good days! Now, excuse me, but I must go fight the urge to run to the grocery store in my jammies and eat ice cream for breakfast. 😉

  11. Lynne @ 365 Days of Baking

    How awesome is it when we can whip something up and not have to go to the store for the necessary ingredients? My daughter got me hooked on Häagen-Dazs’ Dulce De Leche. It is to DIE for! I could go through a whole carton in one sitting. Ok, just a wee bit over indulgent, I know.
    Jessica, you ARE the coolest aunt. These rock!
