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!

Rainbow Sprinkles!! Take a bite of pure happiness and then share the love!


  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup rainbow nonpareil sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the cream cheese, egg, extracts and beat together until smooth, scraping down the sides occasionally.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Beat on low speed until just combined.
  6. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
  7. Place sprinkles in small bowl. Scoop a ball of dough (#40 portion scoop/disher, purple handle, 30 grams, 1.6 Tablespoons) and roll gently between your hands. Roll ball in sprinkles to coat, then place on baking sheet.
  8. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the dough balls approx. 2” apart. Use a glass or jar with a flat bottom to flatten the cookies until they are ½” high. You can get about 12 cookies to a pan.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes (on center rack, one pan at a time). Remove from oven and let cool on the sheet. Repeat with remaining pans.
