“Welcome to Day 6, the final day of Ice Cream Week 2014! This year the event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We have teamed up with 25 amazing bloggers to bring you ice cream treats all week long. I hope you all threw out the scales this week. Better not to look!”
These ice cream shots are my attempt of having my cake and eating it too while not busting open the zipper on my pants! These are the perfect happy ending to your meal, take very little time to put together, and is just enough to satisfy that need for something sweet after your meal without making you overstuffed. Of course that is provided you only eat one and not all six!
For the cherries I used the Trader Joe’s Dark Morello Cherries in light syrup. I loved these, they were slightly tart, not too sweet, and perfect to use in contrast with the sweet chocolate brownie. For the whipped cream I used a pressurized canned whipped cream. I highly suggest you try this treat if your looking to impress some guests. They will think your cool and elegant
Black Forest Ice Cream Shots
- 1 store bought brownie, frosted (or make your own)
- chocolate ice cream
- canned cherries
- whipped cream
- semi sweet chocolate bar
- Cut your brownie into 6 equal pieces. Place in bottom of shot glass.
- Scoop 3 cherries from the jar and place on top of the brownie. Then scoop 1 tablespoon of the cherry juice and pour over top.
- Scoop 1 tablespoon of chocolate ice cream into the shot glass. Feel free to use a little more if you have room . I packed my ice cream down some and probably ended up with a little more than a tablespoon.
- At this point you can place your shots in the freezer until ready to serve.
- When ready to serve, remove from freezer, top with whipped cream, an extra cherry, and some grated semi sweet chocolate. Serve to your happy guests
