Tuesdays With Dorie – Dark Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream

by Jessica on August 10, 2010


Chocolate ganache… how I love thee. It’s rich and decadent and oh-so-good. But, to turn it into ice cream? In late summer, 100+ degree heat?? That’s totally pushing it over the top. And top or not, I’ll definitely take it… any time of the year. 🙂

Katrina of Baking and Boys (love her!) has this week’s smooth recipe on her blog. I’m sure she’s jazzed it up quite a bit… she’s such a whiz at doing that! Check her out and the other TWD bakers here!

This was delicious ice cream wasn’t it. And with the heat here too it was perfect timing.

This looks great! Glad you enjoyed.

Aw, shucks. Thanks for the love!
Sorry I didn’t change it up too much, I wanted to stay true to Dorie’s recipe. But man, this ice cream could withstand any kind of add-ins, huh!
I could only eat a bite or two of this at a time. But every time I visit a blog, I’m tempted to run over to the freezer for another bite. 😉
Thanks for churning along with me this week!

Hey Horned Froggy, I assumed you were from Texas–being a horned froggy and all. Are you in the metroplex area?

But back to the melting ice cream. Oh my goodness. I scooped out balls and froze them individually and then they were covered with instant frost when I took them out of the freezer. By the time the frost melted–well, it was almost too late. You had a good idea to put the ice cream in a dish where you can’t see how much it has melted at the bottom. Good job!

That first photo looks great. I’m wishing I had more left in my freezer! 🙂

So delicious. I let my kids taste it. That was my first mistake. 😉

Yours looks lovely! I see we both went with small bowls- so rich and yummy! 🙂

This ice cream is delicious whether it’s hot & sunny, or cool & foggy.

even tho i only allowed myself small bowls, with the heat, i definitely coulda thrown back the whole quart of this stuff!

Your ice cream looks amazing! Are those brownie chunks in there? I made chunks out of a chocolate arametti torte to add into mine. It was insanely good!

THIS was good stuff wasn’t it. Definitely a repeat. And yours looks delicious.

I love the look of your ice cream, but I really love that little bowl in the bottom picture. It looks like the ice cream that was in it was really enjoyed!
