Step By Step
Put the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla in a medium heatproof bowl and set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Ensure the base of the bowl is not touching the water. Stir with a balloon whisk for about 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is pale, thick and creamy. Remove from the heat and gently fold in the chocolate spread in 3 stages. Leave to cool completely.
Pour the cream into a medium bowl and whisk until thick enough to just hold its shape and form soft peaks. Gently fold the cream into the cooled mixture in 3 stages.
Spoon the mixture into a 1-litre rigid freezer-proof container. Cover with a lid or cling film and place in the freezer overnight to set.
Remove the ice cream from the freezer 5 minutes before you are ready to serve. Arrange 12 cookies on a work surface, with the flat side facing upwards.
Place a scoop of ice cream on each cookie then top each with a cookie placed flat-side down to make a sandwich. Gently press the top cookie to spread out the filling. Using a palette knife, smooth the side of the filled cookies.
