Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream Sundaes

This week Katrina of Baking and Boys chose Dorie's Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream. My first thought? Drooooool. My second thought? Damn ...

While I am a lot more relaxed with food this pregnancy the raw/undercooked egg thing still spooks me. So rather than make a batch of what I am sure is truly awesome ice cream that I won't eat, this time around I just made the ganache.

I turned a lovely, creamy vanilla ice cream into rocky road by adding chopped marshmallows, chocolate covered peanuts and a few jelly babies and topped it all off with lashings of gorgeous chocolate ganache.

The taste test ...

This was sweet, rich and very naughty! I'm sure it doesn't even come close to the deliciousness of the original recipe but we enjoyed it anyway.

Thanks to Katrina for a great pick! It is now top of my list for post-pregnancy baking. Incidentally I finally got around to ordering The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz so I predict a lot of ice cream this summer!


  1. I think I prefer it your way! Yum!

  2. I love the chocolate ganache over your chunky vanilla ice cream. Looks and sounds amazing!

  3. I'm so glad you still got to enjoy some ice cream! And that chocolate ganache looks to die for!

  4. The ganache is the best part of this, so at least you got that in!
    Thanks for playing along with me and my pick this week!
    Dorie just posted on her blog an amazing looking hot fudge she thought would be great with this or any ice cream. I can't wait to try it, after I de-ice cream myself. ;)


Thanks for reading! Questions or comments? I would love to hear from you ...
