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.

Recipe: Pumpkin Brown Sugar Belgian Waffles



It's that pumpkin-everything time of year again!  So, with all of the pumpkin waffle recipes out there, you're probably wondering why you should try this one, right?  Fair enough -- here's why:  


This recipe is the product of months of testing to achieve the right balance of pumpkin flavor, delicate spice, fluffy interior and crispy exterior.  Belgian waffles should be crisp on the outside and light on the inside.  This recipe delivers.  Pumpkin waffles can sometimes be soggy or overwhelming with spice. These waffles aren't too sweet, too spicy, or heavy.  




They are very easy to make, and this recipe makes a large amount.  That way, you family or guests can scarf down as many as they'd like, then you wrap up the rest and refrigerate.  They come back to life in your toaster in minutes, so you get perfect pumpkin Belgian waffles on demand!

I like to serve them with Maple Butter syrup (1/2 maple syrup, half melted butter, whisked together) and a garnish of orange marmalade.  

Enjoy!
