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.

FUDGY S'MORE CRINKLE COOKIE RECIPE ~ Thank you for being a friend...Golden Girls & Golden Grahams


My real-life friend and blogging confidante, Holly, recently commented to me about the undiminishing power of anything remoteley s'more-related captivating her attention.

This past weekend, we left behind our foggy, sleepy little home town for the vibrant, sky-scraper stacked, (yet still fog blanketed) City by the Bay ~ San Francisco ~ to attend a blog conference organized by the sisterhood of bloggers to which we belong ~ SITS.  It was fun getting to meet so many diverse, talented, and intelligent women, and I'm looking forward to implementing all the tips, tricks, and techniques that I picked up.

Most of all, it was nice just having a weekend away with a good friend.  This is the part where the "Golden Girls" theme song should start to play...





Thank you for being a friend,
(Really, it means the world to me)

Traveled down the road and back again.
(Alameda Point Antiques Fair, The Slow Food "Eat-In", Bloggy Boot Camp...even a few memorable trips to the local Dump!)

Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant.
(Who else "gets" my snark, and gets as excited as I do about a 3 page magazine feature about craft glues?)

And if you threw a party-,
(And yes, you've thrown quite a few...you keep saying that if you drink enough you'll end up dancing on a table, but that's yet to be seen)

Invited everyone you knew-,
(But, if it's on a Friday night, chances are it'll just be you, me, a few cocktails, a little bit of crafting, and an appearance by your mother-in-law)

You would see the biggest gift would be from me
(Emphasis on "Biggest", not "Most Expensive")

And the card attached would say, "Thank you for being a friend"
(And for putting up with my shenanigans...like when I hijacked your wi-fi)



So, Holly, this recipe (a collaborative creation from Mr. Rook and his assistant, Chef Chyler, during their weekend free from my warlording) is dedicated to you:
