  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and butter; stir in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool completely. Stir in condensed milk.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; fold into milk mixture. Divide between two freezer containers. Stir melted chocolate into one container until well blended. Cover and freeze both mixtures for 6 hours or until firm.
  3. To make ice cream sandwiches, spread a 1/3 of a cup of ice cream on bottoms of half of the cookies. Cover with remaining cookies; press down gently. If desired, roll sides of ice cream sandwiches in chocolate chips, jimmies, peanuts or coconut. Wrap each in plastic wrap; freeze on a baking sheet until serving. Yield: 9 servings.
