Prepare the Chocolate Coating:
1. **Melt the Chocolate:** In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

2. **Dip the Sandwiches:** Remove the ice cream sandwiches from the freezer. Dip each sandwich halfway into the melted chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off. If desired, immediately sprinkle with toppings such as sprinkles, crushed nuts, or mini chocolate chips.

3. **Set the Chocolate:** Place the dipped sandwiches back on the baking sheet and return to the freezer until the chocolate is set, about 15-20 minutes.


#### Serve:
1. **Enjoy:** Once the chocolate is set, the ice cream sandwiches are ready to enjoy! Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.

– **Softening the Ice Cream:** Ensure the ice cream is soft enough to spread easily but not too melted to maintain its shape in the sandwiches.
– **Uniform Cookies:** For evenly sized sandwiches, use a cookie scoop to ensure uniform cookie sizes.

– **Storage:** Wrap each sandwich individually in plastic wrap before storing in an airtight container to keep them fresh and prevent freezer burn.


These **Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Sandwiches** are a delightful combination of textures and flavors, perfect for cooling down on a hot day or enjoying a special treat. Enjoy the refreshing ice cream, the chewy cookies, and the decadent chocolate coating!
