Ice Cream Bonbons
From Cook's Country
Ice cream bonbon recipes were wildly popular at one national ice cream chain, but we wanted a recipe we could prepare at home. Bittersweet chocolate gave our Bonbons recipe the best flavor, and adding a little vegetable oil to it ensured that it spread smoothly over the balls of ice cream. Scooping the balls of ice cream and refreezing them for at least one hour kept them hard when dipped into the warm chocolate. The chocolate hardens quickly, so we add chopped nuts or coconut for a professional-looking finish.
Makes about 16, serving 4 to 6
Small scoops of ice cream can easily be made to look like bonbons when dipped in melted chocolate. Dust some bonbons with nuts and others with flaked sweetened coconut for variety. The chocolate hardens very quickly, so sprinkle each bonbon with nuts or coconut as soon as it has been coated. Use any flavor ice cream without chunks or nuts. Vanilla, chocolate, and coffee are all good choices.
