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

Marshmallow Cottontail Peeps on a Stick -- Sweet, Simple & Fun Easter Recipe

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hopping down the Bunny Trail
Hippity, Hoppity Easter's on its way

Two of my favorite and most nostalgic Easter sweets are chocolate covered marshmallow bunnies and Peeps®.   So, my girls and I decided to combine the two classics, resulting in:

These sweet bunny silhouettes
are so simple to make and taste incredible!

Here's all you need:

Marshmallow Peeps® Bunnies
Lollipop Sticks 
(found in the cake decorating aisle of most craft stores)
Candy melts, bark or tempered Couverture Chocolate
Mini marshmallows

Step 1:  Line a baking sheet or tray with wax paper (no need to use expensive parchment)

Step 2:  Prep your Peeps® by inserting a stick as far as it will go without coming up through the ears.

Step 3:  Prep mini marshmallows by trimming off 1/3 with scissors.  Keep the larger pieces and discard the trimmings.

Step 4:  Melt your chocolate.

Step 5:  Dip bunny into melted chocolate.  Tap off excess chocolate into the chocolate bowl.  Set on wax paper lined tray.  Add a marshmallow cottontail.  Repeat.  

Step 6:  When tray of chocolate dipped bunnies is complete, refrigerate for a few minutes to help chocolate set.
