Chonky Boys: The Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches that Scream Summer!

Featuring my thick and nuggy Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookies, these ice cream sandwiches are the stuff that summer dreams are made of.  If you've ever had the Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich at Disneyland , you are going to LOVE these!  These big and bold chocolate chip cookies are based on a recipe from my culinary school studies at Auguste Escoffier, but with a few modifications to give them that Jennuine touch.  They make the perfectas book for a fat slice of real vanilla bean ice cream.  And those mini chips?  You just gotta have that extra cronch! Thank goodness this recipe only makes 8 sandwiches, otherwise I would be eating them for breakfast lunch and dinner.  This way, my big family can help save me from my inner child diet-saboteur.   Print With Image Without Image Chonky Boy Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches Yield: 8 Author: Jenn Erickson Loaded with chocolate chips and buttery, brown-sugary vanilla flavor, these mall-sized cookies form a perfect partnership with a

Can you roll paper into a cone? Can you fold an old fashioned newspaper hat? Well, grab your hot glue gun and lets get going...Here's what you need:

  • Glitter skulls (found mine at the Dollar Tree) Can't find glitter skulls? Buy a cheap plastic skull, cover with craft glue, then glitter liberally.
  • Vintage sheet music and/or book pages (I pick up old dictionaries that are falling apart and would otherwise be thrown in the garbage at the end of a garage sale)
  • Craft glue
  • Ultrafine glitter, silver
  • Glue gun
  • Paper cupcake liners
  • Tissue Paper Fringe ~ it's called Festoonery, but you knew that already didn't you, you crafty devil? If you don't have festoonery in your bag o' tricks, follow the easy tutorial below to make your own
First, open up 4-5 cupcake liners. Put a dot of glue in the middle of each paper, then stack.
Glue stack to the bottom of glitter skull to form a sort of Elizabethan Collar
Make a hat using old paper.
Add embellishments like fringe, glitter and velvet ribbon.
Glue hat on to skull. Now, that's one dapper looking dead guy!
Your final step is to fluff and glitter the ruffled collar. It may sound messy, but the best way I've found is to dip my fingertips in the craft glue, then brush lightly over the edges of the ruffles, shaping as I go. Dust with glitter and allow to dry.

The possibilities are endless...
