Turn Ice Cream Bars And Pops Into Elegant Desserts
It’s National Ice Cream Month, and our colleague Hannah Kaminsky of Bittersweet Blog thought up this creative and oh-so-easy approach to ice cream desserts.
She cuts up ice cream bars and pops into squares, then places them in a rocks glass with fruit or edible flowers.
You can also rim the glass with something spicy like Tajín seasoning or chipotle, or a sweet rim such as decorating sugar or colored sanding sugar.
We cut up both fudge ice pops, “gourmet” ice pops from La Newyorkina , and even some ice cream sandwiches.
Because ice cream sandwiches self-identify as casual fare, we dipped the sides of ice cream into a variety of chopped nuts and sprinkles.
Whatever you choose, you can garnish them with:
After we cut the squares, we put them in a single layer atop wax paper on a cookie sheet, and tucked them into the freezer until we were ready to assemble and serve.
These desserts are fun to make and fun to eat. Enjoy!
