How do you make a classic dessert like milk and cookies even better? Turn it into ice cream, of course! This Ben & Jerry’s copycat recipe is loaded up with two different types of homemade cookies, Dark Chocolate Chunk and Double Chocolate Chip!

Besides being incredibly easy to make and so delicious, the great thing about the recipe is that you can totally make it your own! Add chunks of your favorite homemade or store-bought cookies to a simple vanilla ice cream base, made of whipped heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.

It honestly couldn’t be easier to make and might just be my new favorite ice cream flavor!

Step by step instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the condensed milk, vanilla extract and sea salt together.
  2. Add the heavy cream to a large mixing bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer. Use the stand mixer, or an electric hand mixer, with the whisk attachment, to whip the heavy cream until firm peaks form, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Gently fold the condensed milk mixture into the whipped cream with a rubber spatula. Stir in the chopped cookie pieces. Pour the ice cream into a 2 quart, or larger, container.
  4. Cover and place in the freezer for at least 5 hours. Scoop and serve!

Whit’s tips and tricks

  • Freezing the ice cream in a metal container will make it freeze faster. If you want your milk & cookies ice cream ASAP, pour the ice cream into a metal container to freeze.
  • Place the ice cream as far back in the freezer as you can for a quicker freeze. You never want to store ice cream in the door, as it is the warmest place in the freezer. But I have also found for homemade ice cream, the further back in the freezer you place it, the quicker it will freeze.
  • This recipe makes approximately 1/2 gallon of ice cream, which equals 4 pints, or 12 scoops of ice cream.
  • This ice cream will stay good in the freezer for 6 months. Always seal the ice cream in an airtight container to avoid freezer burn. I like to use these glass containers to store the ice cream. This recipe will perfectly fit into two of these containers.
  • You can use just about any cookie you want in this recipe. Chocolate chip, peanut butter, Oreos, double chocolate chip, they’re all fair game! You can even divide the ice cream in half and add different cookies to each half to create two different ice cream flavors.
