These sounded like such a fancy dessert! Since there was ice cream involved, which would melt so easily, I figured it would be difficult to use my usual tasters. So instead, I made the puffs, the ice cream, and the chocolate syrup the day before I was hosting book club at my house and used it as one of my desserts. I had my son and husband taste them first to make sure they were ok and they loved them! 🙂 I on the other hand can’t say I loved them but then what is new? I thought there were a lot of flavors competing and would probably enjoy a more simple version.
I had to make some minor modifications:
- I don’t have an ice cream maker so I opted to buy vanilla bean ice cream and stir in cinnamon.
- I don’t drink coffee so I used a small instant packet left over from the mocha chocolate chip cookies and I omitted the espresso.
Seems like this would be a good recipe to have when you would like to have a fancy dessert to serve. It wasn’t that difficult to make and could be made in many variations. If I was to make these again I think I would work with the flavors a bit but otherwise it is a keeper.
