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.

LITTLE GREEN GOBBLIN'S ~ A PERFECT AND EASY HALLOWEEN APPETIZER


My clever and crafty friends Jaime and Lisa over at Sprout Boutique turned me on to this one:

These simple, delicious, elegant and Halloweenishly green appetizers are made using just four simple ingredients:  blue cheese, cream cheese, seedless grapes and pistachios.


Pistachio Blue Cheese Grape Appetizer
(a.k.a. "Little Green Gobblin's for the holiday's sake)

1 3-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup finely chopped pistachios
1 large bunch seedless red  grapes (40 to 60 grapes)

In a small bowl combine cheeses.
Wrap a little of the cheese mixture around each grape to form a ball.
Roll in chopped nuts.
Cover and chill grapes for 30 to 60 minutes before serving. Can be prepared a day ahead.
