3. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove cookies from oven; press down with a flat-bottom glass or measuring cup. Transfer to wire racks and cool completely. Repeat with all dough.
4. Once cookies are cool, place mini chips in a small bowl. Top one cookie with 3 tablespoons of the ice cream (on flat side of cookie). Press the flat side of another cookie into ice cream.
