Everything Goes with Ice Cream...it's true!


make-ahead ice cream sundaes ::: bake at 350 blog
{These are make-ahead sundaes with homemade fudge sauce. More on them in a minute.}

everything goes with ice cream book
I received this book, Everything Goes with Ice Cream by Koralee Teichroeb of Bluebird Notes, several weeks ago and my very first thought was "joy!"  Yes, ice cream brings joy, obviously,  but this book is jam-packed with joyfulness!

Ice cream, sprinkles, parties, aprons, china tea cups, gingham, color, celebrations...JOY!

everything goes with ice cream book
Oh, and look who I found waiting in the pages....Miss Teresa from Blooming on Bainbridge.  Everyone say hi.  "Hi Teresa!"

Teresa & I thought it would be fun to make a recipe from this charming book to share with you all, and (AND!)...giveaway a copy of Everything Goes with Ice Cream, plus (what do we have for them, George?) a brand new ice cream maker!!! (Sorry, I was channeling The Price is Right there for a minute.)

Here's what I made....Koralee's Hot Fudge Sauce.  Oh baby.

Then, I used the idea from the book to make up some individual sundaes and pop them in the freezer.  After the fudge sauce cooled, I layered it in jars with store-bought coffee and mint chocolate chip ice cream.  My boys thought this was the coolest thing ever.

Baker's twine, wooden spoons, jars?  It's the cute trifecta.  If I had added sprinkles, my kitchen would have exploded from cuteness overload.

I can just picture these at a party, too!  How fun would that be?!?  The jars stay really cold, so let them sit out at room temperature for about 5 minutes or so before serving.

Hot Fudge Sauce
(from Everything Goes with Ice Cream)

1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup light corn syrup
2 cups bittersweet chocolate, chopped (I used Ghiradelli bittersweet chips)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, combine the cream and corn syrup.  Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat, add the chocolate. Stir until smooth and combined.  Stir in the vanilla.

Let cool completely before storing. Makes 2 cups.

  8. I looove Cookie Ice Cream, but at home I only have vanilla 'cause it goes perfect with every kind of topping :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. My favorite flavor is cookies and cream! An icecream maker would be the best addition to my kitchen - it seems like good icecream is hard to come by these days in the grocery store. Everything is a "frozen dairy dessert" (bleh!!)

    ReplyDelete
  10. So cool! Thanks for sharing this clever idea! My favorite flavor tends to go between two extremes - black raspberry or tin roof sundae.

    ReplyDelete
  11. How fun to see Teresa's sweet face popping up in the pages of the book. These individual sundaes are such a fun idea!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Putting together individual, ready-to-serve jars is brilliant, especially with a seven year-old in the house. You didn't have an issue with the glass exploding though? As far as a flavor, pure delicious vanilla is always my top pick.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I just made hot fudge sauce the other day. If I had to pick my favorite these days it would be Karamel Sutra from Ben and Jerry's. Over a lifetime I guess chocolate chip would win out. But only if it has good melty chocolate chips. Not the waxy ones that get gummy.
