Diddy Riese---DIY

If you live in Los Angeles, especially if you have attended UCLA or live in Westwood, you have had the deliciousness that is Diddy Riese. You choose your cookie type (you can even get two different kinds), then you choose your flavor of ice cream. And voila, you have an amazing ice cream sandwich all for $1.50. Now they aren't expensive by any means, and if you are in the area I recommend you try it, BUT, you can make the same exact thing without leaving your house!

All you need is your favorite brand of cookie dough (I prefer Trader Joe's chocolate chip cookie dough) and your favorite kind of ice cream (I like the traditional vanilla, but cookie dough or cookies and cream are great too!!). Bake the cookie dough as directed and make sure you don't over cook! Sometimes it looks like they aren't done so you bake for longer but TRUST me they are done. Just take them out and let them cool and harden for a while. Then once they are a nice brown color and have cooled down a bit you can assemble your sandwich!

Tip: There is usually a bit of a line at Diddy Riese but don't be scared off, it moves quickly!
