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.

A Paper Bag Turkey and a Special Thanksgiving Message from "Little Chief Rockin' Monkey"


Yesterday, adorned in construction-paper headdresses, macaroni necklaces, and playing coffee can tom-toms, my daughter's Kindergarten class entertained us with songs and poems of Thanksgiving.  Yes, yes indeed, "America's got Talent!"  It was a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season!



The Kindergarten families contributed to a potluck feast after the performance, and I was really happy that the Paper Bag Turkey (stuffed with popcorn) that I made, using the tutorial at One Charming Party, was such a big hit.  If you're looking for a fun centerpiece for the kids' table at your next holiday feast, you may want to check this out.  It was so easy (took me less than 15 minutes) and is a great way to recycle paper bags from the grocery store.

Wishing you and yours a most splendid holiday, STUFFED with all of your most favorite things, I leave you with this short message from my very own "Little Chief Rockin' Monkey":
