DELICIOUS DESSERTS: Here Is How To Switch Up Your Ice Cream Sundae
By Space Coast Daily // July 29, 2018
Everyone has a favorite dessert that they order at restaurants, throw together in their kitchen and crave whenever they are having a bad day. Sticking with your comfort food is fine, but it may be time to push your boundaries a little bit. If your ultimate treat is a sundae, consider swapping out some of the dish’s classic ingredients for these incredible upgrades.
Start out your dessert transformation by replacing your scoops of plain vanilla with servings of My/Mo Mochi ice cream — these perfect spheres are layered with a bold and exotic sweet called mochi. Mochi gives the treat its distinct and incomparable texture, feeling both soft, gooey and firm all at the same time.
You can explore all of their different flavors of mochi ice cream like ripe strawberry, mint chocolate chip, salted caramel, sweet mango, double chocolate, green tea or cookies and cream.
Pick a box of your favorite option or buy a bunch to create a bold flavor combination, like salted caramel with cookies and cream mochi ice cream or strawberry with mint chocolate mochi ice cream. This extraordinary take ona traditional ingredient will totally change your sundae into a new adventure for your taste buds.
When you order a sundae from a diner, it typically arrives at your table coated with hot fudge sauce and topped with a single maraschino cherry. The two ingredients are classic components of your favorite dessert, but you should modify them so that they have bolder and brighter flavors.
The first thing you can do is swap out the plain fudge for a chili chocolate sauce to add a bit of thrilling spice to the dish or for a boozy chocolate sauce to give it an intense kick of whiskey. Replace your single saccharine maraschino cherry with several bourbon-soaked cherries or a warm compote made right before assembling the dessert.
A sundae should always be topped with a crunchy ingredient in order to contrast the soft texture of ice cream. For an entirely new experience, exchange your ordinary crunchy elements of rainbow sprinkles and toasted peanuts for unique ingredients that will bring more complex flavors to the dish.
A tantalizing option will be a handful of homemade peanut butter popcorn that combines the satisfying crunch of popcorn kernels, the nuttiness of smooth peanut butter and the sweetness of marshmallows and brown sugar.
If you would prefer for your topping to be more health-conscious, you can make a batch of chunky coconut granola with clusters of rolled oats, slivered almonds, halved pecans, coconut flakes and dried fruit. Just a scoop of one of these ingredients will complete your sundae so thatit’s tasty until the final bite.
Upgrade your ultimate comfort food in order to push your boundaries by swapping the main components with ingredients that are a little more exhilarating. When you take a chance on broadening your horizons, you create the possibility of loving something new, and in this case, absolutely delicious.
