Gooey Chocolate Skillet Cake Ice Cream Sundae

The best way to enjoy dessert is to enjoy it with your family. No argument there. There’s something superbly fun and simple about pulling out a large dish of dessert and laying it on the table, putting it right in the middle, and saying out loud ‘dig in’. There is sheer joy that comes with such an experience, bite by messy, delectable bite. Family memories at its best. Well, in this case, gooey chocolate memories.

P. S. using a cast iron skillet to bake cake is just something else. I love the rustic result.

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.

Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream Cake Roll

At some point in my life, I was crazy about Oreos. As a kid, I remember not being able to sleep if I didn't have my Oreo fix. I was the typical kid who would open the sandwich cookie, and lick the filling.  Then I would close it again, and dunk it in my tall glass of milk. You get the picture.

The Origins Of Ice Cream

Ice cream is often called "The Greatest American Dessert." Although the product is usually American, the United States cannot claim its origin and source.

Ice cream is a frozen dairy dessert made from cream or milk, often combined and manufactured with other flavors and fruits. Most of the time it contains sugar, though sometimes other sweeteners are used.

The chosen ingredients are stirred slowly while the product is being cooled.  This allows the air to be integrated and prevents the forming of ice crystals. The result is then a smooth, semi-solid foam that is highly malleable and can easily be scooped.  I'm drooling just thinking about it.
