I am a brand ambassador for Central Arkansas McDonald’s. While I am being compensated for this post all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I have a question for you. What did we honestly do with all of our time before Facebook videos and the save feature?? I have sooooo many videos saved, most of them recipes of some sort. I used to not like people posting recipes on Facebook because that was what Pinterest is for (in my opinion anyway) but these recipe videos have sucked me in big time. Please tell me I’m not the only one!!!
So while perusing Facebook the other day, I kept seeing this “ice cream hack” that looked like a homemade ice cream sandwich and people were just raving about how amazing it was. So of course, being the good Facebooker I am I clicked the link and found myself watching a video on how to make an ice cream sandwich out of a couple of McDonald’s cookies and a McFlurry.
Wait a minute!! What??
Yes, you read that right, McDonald’s cookies + McFlurry = ice cream sandwich. Now if that doesn’t sound good I don’t what does.
After watching said video my curiosity was piqued so of course I had to make one for myself. Luckily I live pretty close to a McDonald’s so my mission was easy. Go to McDonald’s, acquire said cookies and McFlurry (a Rolo McFlurry of course because they are my everything right now) and make an ice cream sandwich. Sounds easy enough! Riiiiiiight…..why does something always go wrong when I experiment with food? HA!
Unfortunately for it just so happens that it was 100* the day I decided to master this feat. So like the good Facebook recipe video watcher I am I decided to just dump my McFlurry in a pan and refreeze it in hopes that I could scoop it out better.
Side note- I grabbed three cookies because they were 3/$1 versus paying $1.60 for 2. #WIN
Did it work? Let’s see….
And that my friends is how you make an ice cream sandwich out of 2 McDonald’s Chocolate Chip Cookies and a Rolo McFlurry. Trust me when I say it’s delicious!! Oh, and I only stuck the McFlurry in my freezer for about 45 minutes and it scooped out perfectly!!
Celebrate National Ice Cream Month at your local McDonald’s by trying this ice cream sandwich hack or by picking any of the other ice cream offerings McDonald’s has! I highly recommend the Rolo McFlurry!! YUM!!!

What’s your favorite McDonald’s Ice Cream treat??

Tiffany Hathorn says
I’ve tried this once before, but not with the new Rolo McFlurry. Adding it to my food to-do list.
I’ve never tried the McDonald’s cookie ice cream sandwich hack, but it looks easy and super delicious.
I love the milkshakes from McDonald’s.
What a fun idea! And so easy. I will have to do this with my two kids, they would love making these! Perfect summer treat.
This looks awesome! There is nothing like an ice cream sandwich on a hot day. McDonald’s has awesome cookies, second only to Subway.

Talk about tasty! I love McDonald’s cookies and somehow never thought to do this. I plan to change that in the very near future!
Joely Smith says
What a great idea! I do love McFlurries but never can I eat a whole one in one setting! This gives me a great way to make it last longer and taste even better!
Amber Myers says
Oh my gosh, this looks so delicious! I do love going to McDonalds, that’s for sure. I’ll have to try this out next time.
robin rue says
That is a seriously awesome idea. I never would have thought to do this, but will be trying them the next time I am at McDonald’s.
Claudia Krusch says
My favorite is a McDonald’s Oreo McFlurry with caramel added to it. This ice cream sandwich hack is a great idea. I will have to give it a try this weekend for dessert.
Jennifer Van Huss says

Melissa Dixon says
This looks so good! I have to head to McDonalds and try this out for myself. I am craving it now!
Mary Edwards says
This is a great idea. I think I would freeze it a big longer…..then warm up the cookies a bit – voila. YUM
Lisa Heath says
Oh my goodness I need to try this! My 2 favorite things sandwiched together! And really – the price is really good for it!
Carol Cassara says
This is such a great idea! The flavors are perfect together! It’s a lovely treat for the summer as well. I can’t believe I never thought about this one before!

This is perfect to beat the humidity and heat here in East Tennessee. It does looks tasty and easy to prepare.
Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place says
Now why have I never thought of this one before! It’s brilliant and it’s a cool way to enjoy the desserts that they have at McDonald’s! Love this and I’m sure the kids will too!
Those sure look good. I’ve always wanted to make these. I’ll have to give them a try soon. I know my girls would really love them.
oh man! i wish I could have one of those right now! it looks super tasty and I not only love cookies but I also love ice cream (the best of both worlds!)

Mimi Green says
I love food videos on FB, I posted one yesterday. They also do well in terms of reach.
Growing up a Mickey D’s vanilla cone was Bae. This is a great hack.
Yum! It is going to be 100 degrees today and this looks like the perfect snack.
i love a great foodie hack. This is so fun to remix a fast food item to make your own summer treat.
