German Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

So these cookies are to die for! They are soft & chocolatey (cookie), cool & creamy (ice cream), crunchy & sweet (coconut). I had been craving german chocolate anything & these sure hit the spot! In my opinion they are best served soft & freshly made, but they are also amazing to make and freeze individually wrapped. Then you can pull one from your freezer anytime you want a sweet treat! I must say, this is one of my best ideas yet!
