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

Free Kids Superhero Valentines -- Stuck on You

I have four kids,
which, come Valentine's Day,
means bucketloads of candy and junk
find their way home from school.

To help cut down on cavities and landfill,
I decided to come up with a fun, but sneakily practical
valentine for the kids to give to all their classmates last year.

These Marvel superhero bandaids came from the Dollar Tree,
so they were very budget-friendly.

The kids loved them because they're superhero-themed
and they sure beat the icky old skin colored
bandaids that we grew up with.

My parent-friends appreciated them, because they
were one of the few things their kids got
that they didn't toss in the trash
as soon as the novelty of the Valentines Day
haul had worn off (around 10 minutes).
Win * Win

Here's how you can make your own:

Stuck on You Bandaid Valentines

  • FREE hang tag (Download HERE)
  • Cardstock or Photo Paper
  • Plain cellophane treat bags (4x6)**
  • Bandaids (3 per valentine)*
  • Scissors
  • Stapler

Step 1:  Download free hang tag and print on heavy paper.  Cut out hang tags and fold.
Step 2:  Place a strip of 3 bandaids in each cellophane bag. 
Step 3:  Place hang tag over the top of the bag.  Staple in place.

*Bandaids:  I'm not sure if Dollar Tree is still carrying this specific set.  However, I've confirmed that both Walmart and Target presently sell Avengers bandaids.

**Bags:  I've found these at Walmart and Michael's for around $5 for a pack of 100.
