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


Small Town...Small World...

Well, the Facebook Fairy did it again ~ through the magic of networking, she reconnected me with one of my brother's friends from our school days here in Pacific Grove.  I feel blessed and honored to say that I now consider her a dear friend too.  This amazing mom, creative force, fellow foodie, and all-around "good-egg" has opened an Etsy store (Arco Iris), launched a blog (Till Death Do Us Art) and website with such talent, creativity, and gusto ~ all in the time it takes me to decide on a post title!  Amazing! 

Now get this ~ As Holly (from 504 Main) and I were driving up to the Alameda Point Antiques Fair this past weekend, we got to talking blogs (fancy that!) and happened upon the subject of Iris's beautiful jewelry (which Holly had just purchased!).  As with any online purchase, Holly provided her shipping address and...HOLY SMOKES... Iris used to live in the same house (way back when).  Small World, indeed!
