I was rummaging in the refrigerator for a sweet fix and all what I could lay my hands on was some leftover Vanilla Ice Cream, a few cubes of Cadbury’s Chocolate ; so I got thinking – what if I added a coffee twist to vanilla along with some delicate chocolate twirls.
What you need :
Vanilla Ice Cream
Coffee Powder – I use Nescafe Classic
Hard Frozen Chocolate – I used Cadbury’s dairy milk ( goes extremely well with vanilla , you can try bitter chocolate if you wish for a different flavor )
Beating the Coffee :
Beat the coffee by mixing coffee and sugar in ratio 1:4 ( depending on your coffee tastes ), beat it with hand by mixing a few drops of water . I love to beat my coffee in a glass tumbler with a butter knife. When the coffee is fluffy and the sugar has dissolved completely keep aside for layering.
Dressing the Icecream :
Chill the serving plate in the freezer for at least 15 minutes before you pour the ice cream on it , this will ensure that the ice cream does not melt soon while you are dressing it.
Add the beaten coffee over the ice cream by layering , you can add as dollops or you can fill into an icing cone and decorate as per your artistic skills .
Take a potato slicer and grate the hard frozen chocolate bar onto the ice cream (at the chip making blade end in a manner that the ensuring twirls fall directly onto the ice cream) . Add as many delicate chocolate twirls as you like.
Sprinkle some coffee powder or cocoa powder as a finisher.
Enjoy Blisfully !
PS : Do not throw away the leftover beaten coffee, keep it in the fridge – you can ‘rebeat’ it – add hot milk and have a cup of nice creamy beaten coffee , for the finer pleasures of life 🙂
