Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease baking trays.
In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, butter, vanilla extract, eggs, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Roll dough into 5cm balls and place them onto the prepared baking trays. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Do not overbake; the cookies should be set, but still soft. Let cool on the baking tray for a few minutes before removing to finish cooling on wire racks.
Using an ice cream scoop, mould the softened ice cream into a ball about the size of the cookies. Place scoop of ice cream between two cookies and gently press together. If you like a smooth edge, run the back of a spoon around the edge of the ice cream sandwich. Working quickly, fill all of the cookies, lay out on a baking tray and place in the freezer to harden. Serve when the ice cream has frozen solid. Sandwich cookies can be stored in a freezer bag for up to two weeks.
