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.

Family Fun with your Belgian Waffle Maker -- 4 Cinnamon Roll Waffles in Just 2 Minutes


This isn't a new concept, by any means, but this week, it was finally time for my family to invest in a new waffle iron. The little beauty from VillaWare that we got as a wedding gift back in 2000 was ready to retire. So, with the arrival of Ned, our new Belgian waffle maker from Presto, I figured I'd make a fun little treat for the family with my kids.



Four waffles in 2 minutes -- not bad! Ned's a four-star rock star! He was a mid-priced model, had all the features I was looking for, and got great reviews. It's pretty amazing what you can cook in a waffle iron -- hash browns, risotto cakes, polenta cakes, grilled cheese sandwiches, quesadillas, brownies, brookies. Perfect for a dorm room or small apartment!




What unusual things have you made in a waffle iron? 

I'm sharing an Amazon Associates link to the same model I used in the video. I will get a small percentage of each sale from Amazon, but it's not my purpose in posting this. It's just a no brainer and a win-win -- buyers don't pay any extra but have a quick, easy link, and my family gets an itty bitty "tip", which doesn't hurt during these strange, uncertain times.

It looks like the waffle iron is on sale today (4/19/2020) with an Amazon coupon. I don't have any connection with this, but it's definitely motivation to take advantage of the deal. I like this waffle iron just as much as my old one from VillaWare which was twice the price. I'm hopefully that Ned will serve us just as long!
