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

Image
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.

CARDS FOR KIDS ~ HOME EDITION...

If you haven't already read about the wonderful "take-action" group "CARDS FOR KIDS", please read the post below.




The girls had some friends over today and I decided that it was a perfect opportunity to put my money where my mouth is, so to speak
(i.e. make some cards... for kids).

Here's the "recipe":

1 very worthy cause
2 8-year old girls
2 4-year olds, assorted
6 glue sticks
1 glue gun
1 Martha Stewart ballpoint-tip glue pen for fine glitter detail
cardstock and scrapbooking paper
glitter, buttons, doodads and plastic spiders
muffin cups & doilies
Halloween printouts (thanks to Matthew Mead, Martha Stewart, and my favorite: Emily at Inside a Black Apple)
Miscellaneous ephemera (old sheet music, schoolbook and dictionary pages)
The kids had a great time creating from the craft table smorgasbord, and were excited about the fact that their creations are going to other children.
