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

Calling all Creatives: Win an Elmer's Looks for Less Prize Pack

Did you know that Elmer's glue was invented in 1942 by a Georgia Tech chemistry graduate? The company was sold to Borden in the mid-1950s, which is why the Elmer's mascot, Elmer the bull, looks so much like his "sister" Elsie who graces the Borden label.

I can't speak for those who grew up in the 1940s, but as a child of the 70's I can definitely say that my earliest memories of childhood creativity were with Elmer's glue and school paste -- inevitably there was always a kid in every class who thought that eating the paste was a novel idea. I'm glad to say that that child was never me. But I digress...

Flash forward almost forty years, and you'll find me today still using the same reliable Elmer's products (and some new ones too). I recently had the opportunity to participate in the Elmer's Looks for Less Challenge where bloggers were asked to recreate popular home design looks with Elmer's & X-acto products. My entry was a reproduction of the Metro Train Station Clock from the Restoration Hardware catalog. Theirs sells for $995. I put mine together for $25. That's what "Looks for Less" is all about.

In conjunction with Looks for Less, Elmer's is giving TWO lucky Rook No. 17 readers a Looks for Less Prize Pack. Here's what's included in each pack:

Black 20x30 Foam Board  
White 20x30 Foam Board
