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

"I'm a girl, and by me that's only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait

...When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl,
I float as the clouds on air do,
I enjoy being a girl!"

When it comes to fashion, I'm a nostalgist at heart. I adore retro style and vintage-inspired apparel. What are some of your favorite vintage style elements? For me, it's the polka dots, shift dresses and London mod style of the 1960s, the shirtwaist and full skirt dresses of the 1950s, and the Hollywood glam, pencil skirts, and fitted sweaters of the 1930s.

For me, these trappings of yesteryear evoke an elegance, grace and femininity that is missing in many of today's trends. I'm delighted to be hosting a giveaway from Shabby Apple, my favorite online source for beautiful clothes with a vintage flair.

Here' a peek at some of the pieces from Shabby Apple's vintage clothing line that I'd love to have in my closet:
