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.

The ORIGINAL-- Macaroon Kiss Cookie Recipe {Best Flippin' Cookie EVER!}




I originally posted this recipe way back on 12/22/11.  It was my first recipe to go viral, and has been pinched and reposted ever since.  This cookie remains my favorite cookie of all time.  It's been in my family since the mid 1980s, so, like, Rad! The original source has long been forgotten, but this cookie is absolutely unforgettable!  



It starts with a rich cream cheese and vanilla dough with just the slightest hint of fresh squeezed orange.  The dough is coconut laden, and gets an extra roll in coconut before baking.  As the cookie bakes, the coconut on the outside gets toasty, while the cookie remains soft and chewy.  Pure bliss...plus a KISS!

It starts with a rich cream cheese and vanilla dough with just the slightest hint of fresh squeezed orange. The dough is coconut laden, and gets an extra roll in coconut before baking. As the cookie bakes, the coconut on the outside gets toasty, while the cookie remains soft and chewy. It's finished off with a Hershey's Kiss.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2/3 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 6-oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • 10 cups sweetened flaked coconut, divided in to 6 cup and 4 cup portions
  • 1 bag Hershey Kisses (48 pieces)

Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric or stand mixer, beat the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add egg yolks, vanilla and orange juice and beat till smooth.
  4. In 1 cup increments, mix flour into the butter mixture.
  5. Add only the 6 cups flaked coconut and beat to combine.
  6. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour. While dough is chilling, remove wrappers from the Kisses.
  7. Preheat oven to 350.
  8. One at a time, scoop dough into 1.5" balls (about the size of a large walnut, roll between your palms, then roll in the bowl of remaining coconut (4 cups). 
  9. For perfectly uniform cookies, use a #40 portion scoop.
  10. Arrange on an ungreased baking sheet, at least an inch apart (cookies will spread slightly). A standard cookie sheet should accommodate a dozen cookies at a time. Bake 12-14 minutes, until the cookies puff and are very lightly browned.
  11. Remove pan from oven. Immediately press one Kiss into each cookie. Return pan to oven and bake for one additional minute.
  12. Remove pan from oven and cool on a rack for 10 minutes. With a thin spatula, gently move cookies on to a rack to finish cooling.
