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

Inspiring Projects with Flowers and Flours -- A Little Birdie Told Me #4

For my little tomboy's birthday 
I opted for Flour rather than Flowers
with this Lego themed ice cream cake.
I'll be posting a tutorial later in the week.

What did you do this week?

Welcome to "A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday!  If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post, you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to strut your stuff just after the features below:

Last week,
A Little Birdie Told Me...

...The guests brought Flowers and Flours


1.  Eye Spy DIY took a pair of pair of ho-hum shoes from the clearance rack at Target and gave them a chic makeover complete with handmade rosettes.  
2.  Protodoom completely won me over with a glittering stylized skull adorned with paper roses.  So original!  So creative!  I dig this gal's style!
3.  Musings From Kim K. appealed to my whimsical side with a beautiful wreath made from coffee filters!  The coffee filters look like delicate, ruffly carnations, and are beautifully accented by vintage embellishments.  
4.  Mural Maker & More shared a step-by-step tutorial for painting daffodils. If you're looking to "brush up" on your painting techniques, Colleen is a friend and mentor you'll want to meet!  


1.  Culinary Adventures with Camilla never ceases to amaze me with her culinary creations.    This week, Camilla shared her recipe for Mint Tea Shortbreads.  
2.  504 Main toyed with my tastebuds with her tantalizing recipe for Parmesan Pull-Apart Loaf.  I've had the pleasure of taste-testing her blissful bread creation before, and now I just can't get it out of my mind!
3.  A Whisk and a Prayer combines two classic sweets in her nostalgia inspiring Oatmeal Cookie Coffee Cake.
4.  "Flour?" you ask.  Yes, flour indeed!  Enraptured with Love and Projects upcycled the lids that come with refrigerator cinnamon rolls to create this heartwarming piece of art.  What better way to round out a week of creativity and sharing, than with the phrase, "It's a wonderful life"?
