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


Are you looking for an original, fun, and easy costume idea for your child?  Don't want to sew, use complicated patterns, or break the bank?  I'm excited to share with you this collection of easy-to-make, KNOCK-YOUR-SOCKS-OFF costumes -- all can be put together in less than a day, and some even upcycle common household items! UP, UP AND AWAY ~ HOT AIR BALLOON COSTUME I posted this costume (from my friend Maureen) last year.  It's still one of my all-time favorites!  She's also made a "Mouse in a Mousetrap" costume, a "Genie On a Flying Carpet" costume, and a "Stay Puft Marshmallow Man" all of which I hope to feature in the future.  For the Hot Air Balloon Costume tutorial, visit HERE COTTON CANDY -- HOW SWEET IT IS! Donna in Rochester, NY is responsible for this sweet little creation.  Can you believe it cost less than $12?  That's less than a bag of real cotton candy at most carnivals! Find the f

HALLOWEEN OPEN HOUSE ~ recipes, crafts, inspiration and a warm libation

Welcome Friends, to my  2010 Virtual Halloween Open House! Come up the stairs...don't be shy... Hungry Witches? Haunted Woods? Hairy Werewolves? Nah, it's just Gordy & Gussie, the friendly Pumpkin people welcoming you in! 1893?  Yes indeed. Don't bother to knock, just come right in... I have a tutorial for how to make your own whimsical Halloween wreath HERE. DRINK Warm your spirits and and soul with a Hot Cider Catalonia  (WARNING:  You may never want to drink regular cider again). To make the Catalonia, simply add a splash of Chambord (raspberry liquor) and a splash of Frangelico (hazelnut liquor) to a cup of hot apple cider. The Chambord adds depth and the Frangelico adds a wonderful nuttiness (what's a holiday without a little nuttiness?). Top with whipped cream and garnish with a cinnamon stick if you're feeling extra festive!  Special thanks to my dear friend Geri for introducing me to the Catalonia. EAT
