Chedz Ice Cream Sandwiches – Courtesy of Susan Hall

If you like ice cream sandwiches, make them using Chedz sticks.  The savory cheese crunch goes very well with any flavored ice cream.  Since Chedz are made with high quality Tillamook cheese, we naturally selected Tillamook vanilla ice cream if we are not making homemade ice cream.  The two pair perfectly.  This would also be […]

Instructions
  1. Open your bag of Chedz and pair as many Chedz sticks as you would like to make.

  2. Smear ice cream on the flat side of the Chedz sticks (not bumpy side) and stack the other one on top like a sandwich. Repeat with remaining sticks.

  3. If you would like to drizzle chocolate on top of the Chedz sandwiches, melt chocolate chips and scant of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Watch carefully so it does not burn. Remove from microwave and stir. Using a fork, drizzle on top of Chedz sandwiches.

  4. Put in the freezer until ice cream and chocolate drizzle has set up (15-30 minutes). Enjoy your creation!

Instructions
  1. Add the first 9 ingredients in a slow cooker: chicken, broth, onion, garlic, chipotle, cumin, black pepper, chili powder, and salt. Add lime juice if preferred. Gently toss to combine.

  2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours until the chicken is completely tender and shreds easily with a fork. If you prefer that the chicken be more crispy, you can transfer the meat into a baking pan, pour the juice on top and broil for 5-10 minutes. We skip this step.

  3. Serve on tacos, burritos, salads, rice, etc.

  4. Crush the Chedz sticks into fine crumbs using a rolling pin, Magic Bullet or food processor. Sprinkle to taste for an extra cheesy crunch.

  5. Garnish with cilantro if preferred.


Recipe Notes

The chicken can be refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 3 days, or frozen in a sealed container for up to 3 months.

Instructions
  1. Select 6 short Chedz sticks from the bag. Use the Medjool Dates as a length reference.

  2. Cut each Medjool Dates lengthwise and take out the pit. Do not cut all the way through the dates.

  3. Smear almond butter inside each Medjool Date.

  4. Stuff 1 pecan half in each date.

  5. Stuff 1 Chedz sticks in each date.

  6. Carefully close the dates together and form an egg like shape by trying to seal the top together as closely as possibly. It is ok if the Chedz sticks breaks inside.

  7. Put the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwavable safe bowl and microwave on high for about 1 minute 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. If the chocolate chips have not fully melted, put back in the microwave and heat for another 30 seconds, watching to ensure that it does not burn.

  8. Dip each date in the chocolate, allowing any excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl, then carefully place the date on a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  9. Sprinkle the tops of the dates with preferred toppings to taste.

  10. Put the dates in the refrigerator to allow chocolate to set up. Serve when ready. The Chedz may get mushy in the refrigerator for an extended amount of time so it is recommended that the chocolates are consumed timely. But, you shouldn't have any problems making these treats disappear quickly! :)

Instructions
  1. Crush Chedz finely to get about 2 teaspons of Chedz crumbs (more or less on preference) using a rolling pin, food processor or Magic Bullet.

  2. Place eggs in a saucepan, and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover, and let eggs stand in hot water for 20 minutes. Remove from hot water, and cool. To cool more quickly, rinse eggs under cold running water.

  3. Pop out (remove) the egg yolks to a small bowl and mash with a fork. Add mayonnaise, mustard powder, vinegar, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.

  4. Fill the empty egg white shells with the yoke mixture and sprinkle each shell with Chedz crumbs (if serving immediately).

  5. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to one day before serving. If not serving right away, do not sprinkle Chedz crumbs on top as it gets soft in the refrigerator (which is ok if you do not prefer the crunchiness). Sprinkle Chedz right before serving.
