The holidays have passed, and so we move on to a new year filled with more lost promises of better eating. Well, maybe they’re not lost. Who ever said you needed to pound 15 Christmas cookies a day for 2 weeks straight? It’s just time to regulate our intake.
For most of us, there are still a ton of leftovers, and with leftovers, there are the great memories of last year. One of those great memories at our family’s house is grasshopper ice cream, and unless my brother overstayed his welcome, there will likely be a few more scoops left in the freeze.
So lets do it…FrozBroz style – Grasshopper Chocolate Chunk
What is grasshopper? As a cocktail, it is a mix of Creme de Menthe, Creme de Cacao and fresh cream shaken up on the rocks and then strained into a glass. So we’re pretty much making a cocktail ice cream. Bye bye new years resolution number 3.
This is Creme de Menthe. It is what makes a grasshopper a grasshopper…and green. It traditionally gets it’s color from the mint leaves used to flavor the liqueur. It will clean your sinuses and warm your heart. Along with the chocolate liqueur/Creme de Cacao, we add them both to our vanilla base at the end of churning.
Meet Theo. Theo is the only Organic Fair Trade Chocolate maker in the US. We love organic and we love Fair Trade. This 70% cacao bar is rich with deep chocolate flavor. It gets broken into chunks and added in with the liqueurs at the end of the churn.
Just another lost promise to keep the memories alive. Grasshopper Chocolate Chunk.
