everything goes with ice cream book
I received this book, Everything Goes with Ice Cream by Koralee Teichroeb of Bluebird Notes, several weeks ago and my very first thought was "joy!"  Yes, ice cream brings joy, obviously,  but this book is jam-packed with joyfulness!

Ice cream, sprinkles, parties, aprons, china tea cups, gingham, color, celebrations...JOY!

Oh, and look who I found waiting in the pages....Miss Teresa from Blooming on Bainbridge.  Everyone say hi.  "Hi Teresa!"

Teresa & I thought it would be fun to make a recipe from this charming book to share with you all, and (AND!)...giveaway a copy of Everything Goes with Ice Cream, plus (what do we have for them, George?) a brand new ice cream maker!!! (Sorry, I was channeling The Price is Right there for a minute.)

Here's what I made....Koralee's Hot Fudge Sauce.  Oh baby.

Then, I used the idea from the book to make up some individual sundaes and pop them in the freezer.  After the fudge sauce cooled, I layered it in jars with store-bought coffee and mint chocolate chip ice cream.  My boys thought this was the coolest thing ever.

Baker's twine, wooden spoons, jars?  It's the cute trifecta.  If I had added sprinkles, my kitchen would have exploded from cuteness overload.

I can just picture these at a party, too!  How fun would that be?!?  The jars stay really cold, so let them sit out at room temperature for about 5 minutes or so before serving.

Hot Fudge Sauce

Remove from heat, add the chocolate. Stir until smooth and combined.  Stir in the vanilla.

Let cool completely before storing. Makes 2 cups.
