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.

PECAN PRALINE FRENCH TOAST


This year, we spent Fathers' Day up in Crescent City, visiting my dad and step-mom.  On our drive over the river and through the woods, we stopped in Ukiah and purchased a beautiful loaf of Challah bread at Schat's Bakery. 

On Saturday night, I sliced into the golden loaf, buttered a glass baking dish, and prepared the Pecan Praline French Toast for the next day.  Sunday morning, I had only to preheat the oven, pour the pralines over the prepared bread, and bake.  The smell wafting from the kitchen was heavenly! 

We served the French toast with warm maple syrup, and fresh blueberries (which added a nice tart contrast to all the cinnamonny sweetness).

Some things are just too good not to share!  Here's the recipe:
