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!

At last, you no longer have to sacrifice taste for sweet sentiment, when you make your own conversation hearts using the recipe from 
Christy of Fudge Ripple!  Using her basic recipe, you can branch out into gourmet flavors like "orancello, coconut, green tea, almond, anisette, coffee, and vanilla bean"! 

Botticelli may have had his "Birth of Venus"
coming forth from a scallop shell,
but I'll take the Caprese Scallops from
Lisa at  The Pursuit of Happiness
over Botticelli's Venus every time.  

Jocelyn from Inside BruCrew Life 
made my heart swoon for her 
Sour Cream Banana Donuts

Katie from Eye Spy DIY
shared tutorials for making these 
stylish handmade accessories:
Checkbook cover, wallet, and rosette bobby pins.

shared everything I need to create

fresh veggies, feta cheese, hummus, and other
delectable delights!

Cranberry Lemon Cheesecake
from Culinary Adventures with Camilla
