Boulder Ice Cream, White Chocolate Crumb, Hot Fudge, Sundae and A Giveaway



 Not that long ago, Boulder Ice Cream wrote to me and asked me if I would like some coupons for free ice cream. We are talking ice cream here, folks and I knew manservant would never forgive me if I turned down ice cream. Especially free ice cream.  I'd bought Boulder ice cream before because they have such great flavors and a cute little label. 


What I like about their ice cream is that they have such unique flavors. The Mexican chocolate has a hint of cinnamon which is perfect for after a heavy Mexican dinner. The green tea ice cream is great after an Asian dinner. Well, great after anything!

Boulder ice cream infuses their milk and cream with their special brand of  flavors and lets them sit awhile before they start churning. And they only churn in small batches-whatever that means! All I know is, the ice cream I've had, I would buy again. And so would manservant. He is the real ice cream eater in this house. Yes, he gave Boulder ice cream two thumbs up. 

Now I have to tell you, in general I am not an ice cream person. I'd rather have a cookie. Or a piece of cake with a glass of milk. But every now and then I have a craving for a giant hot fudge sundae. And hot fudge sundaes are overload enough. I like using plain, unadulterated ice cream for my sundaes and this is what Boulder ice cream is famous for. Their sweet cream is just that. No vanilla added. You get the creamy flavor of ice cream and then the toppings shine, too! Everyone is happy.


And I think that's what I like about ice cream the most. It's a happy food. So take advantage now and put some happiness in your life. Hopefully, Boulder ice cream can be found near you. They will send the winner of this giveaway three coupons to redeem for three pints of ice cream. Just leave me a comment and I will choose a lucky ice cream lover on Monday. 



Boulder Ice Cream, White Chocolate Crumb, Hot Fudge Sundae

Makes about 4

1 pint sweet cream ice cream
1 pint chocolate pudding ice cream

Hot Fudge Sauce - from Milk Bar

1 oz 60% dark chocolate chopped (They used 72%)
2 T cocoa powder
1/8 t kosher salt

1/4 c glucose or 2 T white corn syrup
2 T sugar
1/4 c heavy cream

Combine chopped chocolate, cocoa and salt in  small bowl.

Combine glucose or corn syrup, sugar and heavy cream in a heavy bottomed sauce pan and stir, while bringing to a boil over high heat. This happens pretty fast! The moment it boils, pour into the bowl holding the chocolate. Let sit for 1 full minute.

Slowly begin to whisk the mixture. Continue increasing the speed of your whisking every thirty seconds until the mixture is glossy and smooth. This will take 2-4 minutes and it does get thick and heavy. You can make this into hot fudge sauce by warming it in the microwave on low for thirty second increments for up to two minutes. (The recipe says this makes enough for four sundaes. I think they are kidding. Three at best, because I love chocolate. OK, you could do 4, but no licking the bowl.)

White Chocolate Milk Crumbs (from Milk Bar)

1/2 c nonfat dry milk powder
1/4 c flour
2 T cornstarch
2 T sugar
1/2 t kosher salt

4 T melted butter
1/4 c nonfat dry milk powder
3 oz melted white chocolate

Heat oven to 250.

Combine 1/2 c milk powder, flour, cornstarch, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well to combine. Add melted butter and toss with a spatula, until the mixture starts to come together and form clusters.

Spread the clusters on a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. The crumbs should be sandy. Cool completely.

Now put cooled crumbs in a bowl and toss with the 1/4 c nonfat dry milk powder until well combined.

Pour melted white chocolate over the crumbs and toss until your clusters are suffocated with white chocolate. Then toss every 5 minutes until the chocolate hardens and the clusters are no longer sticky. DO NOT BURN YOUR WHITE CHOCOLATE. DO NOT ASK ME WHY I'M TELLING YOU THIS! 

You will love these. They are perfect as a topping for ice cream. Or cookies. Or in cookies. Or between cakes. Or just to eat.

To Assemble:

Put some crumbs in the bottom of a tall glass. Add a spoonful of fudge. Add a scoop of sweet cream Boulder ice cream. Add some crumbs. Add some hot fudge. Add a scoop of chocolate pudding ice cream. Add some hot fudge. Add some crumbs. Top with a cherry or a raspberry. Eat before it melts. 

You should now be in a very happy place! Like Boulder!

  5. I've not heard of Boulder Ice Cream, but it sounds like a great company. Certainly your sundae is great! Super flavor combo there. I do like ice cream, although we try to limit our consumption (that calorie thing, you know). So we usually buy Ben & Jerry's, even though it's loaded with fat, simply because the containers are small. ;-)
