Chonky Boys: The Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches that Scream Summer!

Image
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.

How to Host a Halloween Scavenger Hunt Party




Here's a bit of Halloween tomfoolery
that makes for a perfect party:  

The Halloween Scavenger Hunt
It's fun for all ages and couldn't be easier to put together!


We've enjoyed rounding up our group of usual suspects year after year to traipse through the streets in a high-spirited hunt! Here's a list of tips and tricks for how to host a successful Halloween Scavenger Hunt party of your own:

1.  Set a date and send out invitations with all the particulars. Ask guests bring a digital camera and let them know they'll get bonus points for coming in costume. 

3.  On the day of the scavenger hunt, give each family an identical bag of "tricks" which includes their scavenger list, pens & pencils, and some fun props, including a roll of toilet paper for "mummifying" one of the team members.



4.  Send all the teams out at the same time and print their "return time" on the scavenger hunt list (or bag). We typically give the participants an hour. Depending on your neighborhood, you may want to give your teams the option of using their car.

5.  When guests return, treat them to some warm cider and spooky sweets.
