Chocolate Ice Cream Bon Bons
Shatter the chocolate shell to reveal the ice cream beneath in this cool make ahead dessert.
Notes:For the easiest handling, use a good quality, dense ice cream. Fluffy ice creams that are full of air will melt too quickly when dipped into the chocolate. You may not need the full 16 ounces of chocolate to dip the balls. I call for that much to ensure that you'll have enough. Any unused melted chocolate can be reserved for another use. Chocolate can also be melted in the microwave using 50 percent power, checking and stirring every 30 seconds until melted. If making ahead, store dipped balls between layers of parchment in an airtight container.
