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

How to Make a LIGHTNING MCQUEEN Cake Topper Out of Fondant

After what was a very long and seriously intense week, it was wonderful to unwind by hanging out and getting creative with some good friends.  I brought along some fondant and fondant tools so I could play and just have fun.  I have to admit, there's a lot of kid in me, so I'm really looking forward to the summer release of Pixar's "Cars II".  I must have had 'Cars' on the brain as I twizzled and twisted my red fondant because before I knew it, the pieces were coming together in the form of Lightning McQueen.

This little guy is just 3" long and was made from red, white, black and blue fondant.  The metallic elements were brushed on with a combination of lemon extract and luster dusts.  I used an food-writer pen to highlight the lettering.

Here's a quick little slideshow of how I put Lighting McQueen together.  He'd be the perfect little cake topper for a CARS birthday party.  I can imagine him posed on top of a fondant strip of blacktop, checkered flags a' wavin'.  

My kids just want to know when they can eat him.
