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

Chocolate-dipped Marshmallow Cupid's Arrows

  • Jet-Puffed Jumbo Heart Marshmallows
  • White, Pink, or Dark Chocolate
  • Sprinkles, Disco Dust, or Gold Luster Dust 
  • Baking sheet
  • Wax or parchment paper
  • Paper Straws (see resources section below)
  • Copy paper cut into 1.5" x 2" rectangles (you'll need two per arrow)
  • Small, sharp scissors
  • Extra Strength glue stick
  • Cello bags
  • Ribbon

Step 1:  Add quills to the paper straws by applying glue stick to both pieces of 1.5" x 2" copy paper.  Set paper straw on top of one piece (on the glue side), 3/4" of the way up.  Cover with second piece of paper (glue side down, so that glue sides are touching).  Press evenly into place on sides and around straw.  Trim paper to create quill shape.  Fringe each side (I snipped 5 times per side).

Step 2:   Line a baking sheet with wax paper.  Insert paper straws into the marshmallows.

 Step 3:  Melt chocolate.  Dip marshmallows 2/3 of the way into the melted chocolate.  Shake off excess.  Place back on lined baking sheet to set.  If decorating with sprinkles or disco dust, shake on while the chocolate is still wet.  If making gold-tipped dark chocolate arrows, you'll wait until the chocolate has set.  Place tray in refrigerator for 15 minutes or until chocolate has completely set.

Step 4:  (optional) For gold-tipped dark chocolate arrows, use a soft paint brush to brush gold luster dust on the tip of each arrow.

Step 5:  Wrap marshmallow in a cellophane bag and tie off with a coordinating ribbon.  

  • Paper Straws:  You can find them in bulk online, or in packs of 20 in the party aisle at Target.
  • Small Cellophane bags:  I purchase mine from the cake & candy section of Michael's.
  • Luster Dust & Disco Dust (edible glitter):  Available at most cake decorating stores and on Etsy.
  • Extra Strength Glue Stick -- I prefer Elmer's brand.
