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.

Slow Food and Slow Crafts - A Little Birdie Told Me....No. 23

We downloaded the PocketBooth app
and enjoyed our own retro photo booth
down by the river!

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 
join the party after the features below.


Today I said sayonara to the laundry pile,
turned my back on a stack of papers
and blew a raspberry at my computer.

I packed up the kids, a few of their friends,
a basket full of sandwiches,
and spent the day by the river.

There's a lot to be said for taking it slow,
doing it "the old fashioned way"
and for simple pleasures...


Simple pleasures like a fresh fruit salsa...

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Pita Chips from Shugary Sweets
...sharing a bowl of hearty seafood chowder on a cold coastal day...

Quality ingredients, love and time went in to the
Seafood Chowder from Culinary Adventures with Camilla
...Treating yourself to a spa experience with just 3 simple ingredients...

Homemade Salt Scrub from Snowflakes & Dragonflies

...or taking the time to create something without short-cuts or fancy equipment...

BBQ Themed Appliqued Dish Towels from The Silly Pearl
