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.

Valentine DIY: "Nuts About You" Circus Peanut Valentines {free printable}

An old-time candy
(circa 1800)
get's a new twist
for Valentine's Day!

I think the kids will go "nuts" for these, don't you?


Circus Peanut Valentines

  • Circus Peanut Candy (4 per Valentine)
  • Free printable Valentine inserts (download HERE)
  • Pretzel bags (sold in the cake/candy section of most craft stores)
  • String/twine

To assemble:  Download the sheet of valentine card inserts.  You can print directly on to the blank side of a piece of patterned scrapbook paper for an easy double-sided look.  Or, cut 4.5 x 1.75 strips from patterned scrapbook paper; then, print the inserts on regular printer paper.  Trim, then insert both pieces into the bag, back-to-back.  I found that the peanuts were easiest to place once the paper had already been inserted and centered inside the bag.  Once peanuts are in place, tie off ends of bag with string or twine.
