Happy Chocolate Ice Cream Day! And oh, what a happy day it is when the entire nation pays homage to one of our favorite classic ice cream flavors.
Though chocolate ice cream is always great on its own, we've seen some new recipes that take it to an entirely new level. The first is a fantastic ice cream sundae with all the bells and whistles - meringues, peppermint candies and chocolate-mint sauce. The second is a modern riff on chocolate ice cream which incorporates the great flavors of Mexican hot chocolate with cinnamon and a hint of chili powder.
Pictured at the top is a decadent sundae: Chocolate Chip Meringues with Ice Cream, Peppermint Candies and Chocolate-Mint Sauce from Epicurious. It's a dessert empire build upon a foundation of chocolate ice cream.
We also love the flavors of Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream from Simply Recipes, below. It incorporates Mexican ingredients into a creamy chocolate ice cream recipe.
Once dinner is done it's time for some chocolate ice cream fun!
