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.

Crafty Food: Easy Bento Box Butterflies and Rice


I love finding news ways to combine crafting with cooking!
This simple and healthy snack  gets a touch of creative whimsy
from toasted seaweed and a craft punch!


Rice balls made with half white and half brown rice are a popular snack and lunchbox item at my house.  We've all become fans of the snack packs of toasted seaweed that have popped up in stores like Trader Joes and Costco.    



So, for lunch the other day, I decided to combine the two -- using my butterfly punch from Martha Stewart Crafts to make delicate seaweed butterflies with which to embellish the rice balls. 

 

My family loved them.  The girls are excited to have them in their school lunches.  I think they'd be a lovely addition to a tea party or as a kid-friendly finger-food for a potluck.
