No matter how old my kids get, there are few things that cookies can’t fix. Seriously, if my teen has a bad day, a cookie can make it better. If he’s got a big game and his nerves are getting the best of him, a cookie can fix it. If he just needs to talk but isn’t sure where to start, a cookie is the bridge that helps us connect. I can’t even count the times over the years that he and I have sat down with a Chips Deluxe® cookie and a glass of milk and bonded over some of the largest and smallest moments of his childhood. However, now that’s he’s driving and independent, it’s become more important than ever for me to find ways to connect with him and I’ve discovered that no matter how far he goes, all I have to do is show up with my tray full of Chips Deluxe Rainbow Cookie Sandwiches and he’s instantly that little boy again who just wants his mom to cheer for him, laugh with him, give him a cookie to make everything all better.
Whether I pair a plate of Chips Deluxe Original cookies with a glass of milk or whip up a tray of my family’s favorite Chips Deluxe Rainbow Cookie Sandwiches, in my home cookies are a staple. They are always on my grocery list (psst….you can find them in the cookie aisle at Publix) and always in my pantry. So, when I recently discovered that the product my family knows and loves, and has been a staple for me and my kids for years is now even bigger and better, I knew I had to find a way to celebrate. You see, if you’re familiar with Chips Deluxe cookies, then you already know that they make fun moments even more delicious.

It means that when my teen has an amazing day or brings home a great grade, we can create a memory as I listen to him tell me all about it while he dunks his Chips Deluxe Original cookie into a glass of milk the same way he has for as long as I can remember.
It means that we can sit down together and for just a few minutes, forget that he thinks he’s too cool to need his mama. Instead I rediscover the fact that he still thinks my jokes are corny and that I say the craziest things. I watch him throw back his head and laugh in between each chocolatey dunk.
It means creating simple moments when pulling out the perfect chocolate chip cookie is all it takes to say I love you, I’m proud of you or I just think you’re awesome.

This icing is so easy to make and it’s a fun way to take these Chips Deluxe Rainbow cookies to the next level. To start, I added my butter to my blender and whisked it until it was light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). As soon as my butter was fluffy, I mixed in my vanilla extract and then added my confectioner’s sugar and milk a little at a time until I reached the consistency I wanted.
Once my icing was perfectly made, I separated it into five bowls and added red, yellow, blue and green food color to four of the bowls, leaving the final one white.
After mixing in my food coloring to turn my icing the colors of the rainbow, I pulled out my Chips Deluxe Rainbow cookies and added one tablespoon of icing to each cookie, alternating colors as I went.
Once I had added the icing to my Chips Deluxe Rainbow cookie bases, I added a second cookie to the top of each iced cookie and pushed it down gently to create my Chips Deluxe Rainbow Cookie Sandwiches.
Then I simply lined them up on a serving platter to create a rainbow effect that paired perfectly with the rainbow cookies.
Then, in order to make an ordinary moment extra fun, I simply served them up to my son (and all his friends as well because these Chips Deluxe Rainbow Cookie Sandwiches are just too much fun not to share!).
And since there are always plenty of these delicious cookie sandwiches thanks to the fact that I used the 20% bigger pack of Chips Deluxe Rainbow cookies from Publix, I’m even able to save some and store them in an air tight container in the fridge so that I’m always ready to celebrate special moments, ordinary moments or just moments that I want to remember.
As I’m sure you can tell from the jubilant look on my son’s face, any day, any moment and any special achievement is made better by the addition of these Chips Deluxe Rainbow Cookie Sandwiches!
