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

Craft-a-Day ~ 365 Simple Handmade Projects
(Review & Giveaway)

Whether you're 7 or 70,
proclaim yourself "not creative"
or a "crafty diva",
have lots of free time on your hands,
or only a few minutes to spare, 
you're going to love Craft-A-Day!  

Craft-A-Day contains 53 weeks worth of themes from Foxes and Owls to Strawberries and Snowflakes.

Craft-A-Day by Sarah Goldschadt contains 365 adorable and simple projects to kick-start your creativity any day of the year!  The whimsical, yet basic projects are organized into playful weekly themes and are accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions with handy patterns and lots of photographs to guide you every step of the way.  

Gnome Week in January is one of my favorite themes.
I love the way each page follows the calendar -- with a different craft for every day of the year.  You can pick your craft by date, by theme, by flipping through for something that catches your fancy, or by starting on January 1 and working your way through the entire year.

All the patterns and templates you need to make party decorations, cards, gift tags, ornaments, cake & cupcake toppers, pincushions, stamps, plush animals and more are included in the book!

The projects are simple and sweet.  You don't need to be a craft expert or have any fancy equipment.  As as Sarah says in her introduction, "we're going old school" with supplies like scissors, paper, glue and felt.  

Here are some of my favorite projects from Craft-A-Day:  Heart Felt Card, Mini Robot Cupcake Topper, Mustache Magnet, Felt Mitten Ornaments, New Year's Stick Card and Turtle Pincushion.

This sweet little raccoon gift tag took me five minutes from start to finish.  I used the pattern and instructions from Craft-A-Day, but added my own creative flair by using an old dictionary page in place of the grey paper.

Seasoned crafters will find this book chock-full of inspiration.  The basic projects provide a springboard for your imagination and creative flourishes.

I have an extra copy of Craft-A-Day and it can be YOURS!
