Here's a delicious Valentine's Day treat for your sweetheart.
It's sweet, it's warm and comforting, and it's pink (though you can't totally tell from the picture).
At first we were suspicious... "Why melt the ice cream?!? Why add water?!" But boy was it worth it.
Don't question it.
Strawberry Sweethearts Cocoa
slightly adapted from Two Peas and Their Pod
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 pint strawberry ice cream
- 2 cups water
- Whipped cream
- 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon chocolate sprinkles
In a medium-sized bowl, melt the chocolate chips and dip the top of four mugs into the chocolate. Set aside, allowing chocolate to harden.
In a medium pot, whisk together the butter, sugar, and ice cream over medium high heat until melted. Whisk in the water, one cup at a time until your favorite texture/flavor is achieved. Heat just until steaming. Pour into chocolate-rimmed mugs. Garnish with a dollop of whipping cream and a sprinkling of chocolate sprinkles.
*We only made two glasses, and only added in 2 cups of water vs. 4 cups. We used less chocolate chips for the rims since we were only having two glasses, also.
Your sweet is sure to think you're sweet if you make this for him or her. What says "I love you" more than chocolate-dipped rims and strawberry ice cream?
It's love in a glass.
