As I write this, I’m not at my happiest. Times like this, I find it challenging to have an appetite for food. Even my favorite foods, that make me a happy girl during ordinary days, just won’t cut it. Ice cream, on the other hand, is an exception!
I find the coolness and the flavor very comforting. I especially like mocha/coffee, pistachio, slated caramel, and of course, chocolate ice cream. This one’s a nice, fancy take on chocolate ice cream. I’m sure anyone’s spirit will be lifted.
Soften the ice cream by leaving it at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes, or microwaving it for 15 to 20 seconds. Once the ice cream is soft, scoop the entire pint into a large bowl. Add the chocolate fudge sauce and mix until it is swirled through the ice cream. Add the chocolate chips and mix again. Gently stir in the chunks of eclairs.
Transfer the ice cream to a quart-size food-storage container. Press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the ice cream, then place in the freezer until firm, about 1 hour.
How about you, what’s your comfort food?
